The following list includes all rights of the person concerned as per the GDPR.
If your personal data is processed, you are the person concerned as defined by the GDPR and you have the following rights vis-à-vis the responsible organisation:
1. The right to information
You can request confirmation from the responsible organisation as to whether personal data relating to you will be processed by us. In the event of such processing, you may request the following information from the responsible organisation:
(1) the purposes for which the personal data will be processed;
(2) the categories of personal data processed;
(3) the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data relating to you has been or will be disclosed;
(4) the planned duration of the retention of the personal data relating to you or, if it is not possible to provide specific information in this regard, criteria for determining the retention period;
(5) the existence of a right to rectify or delete personal data concerning you, a right to limit the processing by the responsible organisation or a right to object to such processing;
(6) the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;
(7) all available information on the origin of the data, if the personal data are not collected from the person concerned;
(8) the existence of automated decision-making including profiling in accordance with Art. 22 (1) and (4) GDPR and – at least in these cases – meaningful information on the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing on the person concerned.
You have the right to request information as to whether the personal data concerning you will be transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you may request to be informed of the appropriate guarantees pursuant to Art. 46 GDPR in connection with the transfer.
2. The right to rectification
You have the right to have your personal data corrected and/or completed by the responsible organisation if the personal data processed concerning you is inaccurate or incomplete. The responsible organisation must carry out the rectification immediately.
3. The right to limit the processing
Under the following conditions, you may request that the processing of your personal data be restricted:
(1) if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period of time which allows the responsible organisation to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
(2) the processing is unlawful and you refuse to erase the personal data and instead request that the use of the personal data be restricted;
(3) the responsible organisation no longer needs the personal data for processing purposes, but you need them for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims, or
(4) if you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR and it has not yet been established whether the legitimate reasons of the responsible organisation outweigh your reasons.
If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data – apart from their storage – may only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State. If the processing restriction has been limited in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the responsible organisation before the restriction is lifted.
4. The right to deletion
(a) Duty to delete
You may request the responsible organisation to immediately delete the personal data concerning you and the responsible organisation is obliged to delete this data immediately if one of the following reasons applies:
(1) Personal data relating to you shall no longer be necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
(2) You revoke your consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a or Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. a GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
(3) You object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing or you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 Para. 2 GDPR.
(4) The personal data concerning you have been processed unlawfully.
(5) The deletion of your personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the responsible organisation is subject.
(6) The personal data relating to you have been collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Art. 8 Para. 1 GDPR.
We would like to point out that if your data is deleted, participation in the event is no longer possible.
b) Information to third parties
If the responsible organisation has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged to delete them in accordance with Art. 17 Para. 1 GDPR, they shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform the persons responsible for data processing who process the personal data that you, as the person concerned, have requested them to delete all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data.
The right to deletion does not exist if processing is required
(1) for the exercise of freedom of expression and information;
(2) to fulfil a legal obligation which processing is subject to under the law of the Union or of the Member States to which the responsible organisation is subject or to perform a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the responsible organisation;
(3) for reasons of public interest in the field of public health pursuant to Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. h and i as well as Art. 9 Para. 3 GDPR;
(4) for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 Para. 1 GDPR to the extent that the law referred to in Section a) is likely to make it impossible or seriously impair the attainment of the objectives of such processing, or
(5) to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
5. The right to notification
If you have exercised your right to rectify, cancel or limit the processing of your personal data against the responsible organisation, the latter is obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of such rectification, cancellation or limitation, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. You have the right to be informed of such recipients by the responsible organisation.
6 The right to data transfer
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the responsible organisation in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. Additionally, you have the right to communicate these data to another responsible organisation without being hindered by the responsible organisation to whom the personal data was provided, as long as
(1) the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a GDPR or Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. a GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b GDPR and
(2) the processing is carried out by automated means.
In exercising this right, you also have the right to request that the personal data concerning you be transferred directly from one responsible organisation to another responsible organisation, insofar as this is technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.
The right to data transfer does not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the responsible organisation.
7. The right of objection
You have the right, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 S.1 lit. e or f GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The responsible organisation will no longer process the personal data relating to you unless they can prove compelling grounds for processing worthy of protection which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If the personal data concerning you are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of the personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is connected with such direct marketing.
If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for such purposes.
You have the possibility to exercise your right of objection through automated procedures using technical specifications in connection with the use of Information Society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.
8. The right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law
You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The revocation of your consent does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of your consent until you revoke it.
9. Automated decision in individual cases including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to any decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, that has any legal effect on you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision
(1) is necessary for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract between you and the responsible organisation,
(2) is authorised by legislation of the Union or of the Member States to which the responsible organisation is subject and contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests; or
(3) with your express consent.
However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 Para. 1 GDPR unless Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. a or g GDPR applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.
With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the responsible organisation shall take appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the responsible organisation, to state your own position and to challenge the decision.
10. The right of appeal to a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State where you reside, at your place of work or at the place where the alleged infringement took place, if you consider that the processing of your personal data is in breach of the GDPR.
The supervisory authority to which the complaint was submitted will inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Art. 78 GDPR.
Responsible supervisory authority:
Landesbeauftragte für Datenschutz und Informationsfreiheit Nordrhein-Westfalen
