B) Right to rectification

At your request, the Data Controller corrects or completes personal data concerning you. If any doubts arise regarding the rectified data, the Data Controller may request from you to prove the rectified data for the Data Controller appropriately, primarily with documents. If the Data Controller disclosed your personal data affected by the right to rectification to other recipients, then the Data Controller shall immediately inform such recipients after correcting the data, provided it is not impossible or does not require disproportionate effort from the Data Controller.

At your request, the Data Controller informs you about such recipients.

C) Right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”)

If you request the erasure of any or all of your personal data, the Data Controller shall erase such data without undue delay if:

  • the Data Controller does not need the personal data in question anymore for the purpose such data was collected or otherwise processed for;
  • it concerns data processing that was based on your consent, but you withdrew the consent and the data processing has no other legal basis;
  • it concerns data processing that was based on the legitimate interests of the Data Controller or third parties but you objected to the data processing and there are no legitimate grounds for the data processing that would have priority;
  • the Data Controller illegally processed the personal data, or
  • the erasure of the personal data is necessary for the performance of legal obligations.

If the personal data affected by this right is disclosed by the Data Controller to another party then the Data Controller shall immediately inform such persons after the erasure, provided it is not impossible or does not require disproportionate effort from the Data Controller.

At your request, the Data Controller informs you about such recipients.

The Data Controller is not always obliged to erase personal data, especially for example if the data processing is necessary for the establishment, exercising or defense of legal claims.

D) Right to restriction of data processing

You can request the restriction of the processing of your personal data in the following cases:

  • you contest the accuracy of the personal data – in this case the restriction concerns the period enabling the Data Controller to check the accuracy of personal data;
  • the data processing is unlawful but you oppose the erasure  of data, requesting the restriction of the usage of the same instead;
  • the Data Controller does not need the personal data for data processing purposes any longer but you need the data for the establishment, exercising or defense of legal claims; or
  • you objected to the data processing – in this case the restriction concerns the period until it is established whether the legitimate grounds of the Data Controller override those of you.

The restriction of data processing means that the Data Controller does not process the personal data belonging under the scope of the restriction except for storage. If personal data under this right is disclosed to other persons the Data Controller shall immediately inform such persons about the restriction of data processing, provided it is not impossible or does not require disproportionate effort from the Data Controller.

E) Right to objection

If the legal basis for the data processing is the legitimate interest of the Data Controller or third parties, you are entitled to object to the data processing.

  • the data processing is connected to the data for the submission, enforcement or defense of legal claims of the Data Controller
