5. Your rights as a Data Subject
To the extent that your personal data is processed on the occasion of your visit to my Website, you are, as a “Data Subject” within the meaning of the GDPR, entitled to the following rights:
5.1 Right of access
You have the right to obtain information from me about whether personal data on you are processed at pro editorial office dr. pasternak. There is no right of access if
By way of deviation, there may be a duty to provide the information if, in particular when taking into account imminent losses or damage, your interest overrides the interest to keep the information secret. Moreover, there is no right of access if the data has been stored only because it may not be erased owing to statutory retention periods or because it only serves the purpose of data backup and data protection control where providing the information would involve disproportionate effort and adequate technical and organizational measures have been taken to ensure that there is no processing for other purposes either.
Where in your case the right of access is not excluded, and your data is processed by me, you have the right to demand information about the following:
5.2 Right to rectification and completion
Should you become aware that personal data on you that I have is inaccurate, then you have the right to demand that I erase such inaccurate data without undue delay. In the case of incomplete personal data on you, you have the right to demand that such data be completed.
5.3 Right to erasure
You have a right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”) if the processing is not necessary for purposes of exercising the right to free speech, exercising the right to information, fulfilling a legal obligation or performing a duty which is carried out in the public interest and one of the following grounds is applicable:
There is no right to erasure if, in the case of lawful non-automated data processing, owing to the specific way in which the data has been stored, erasing the data is impossible or would involve disproportionate effort and your interest in the erasure is limited. In such case, a restriction to the processing takes the place of an erasure.
5.4 Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to demand that I restrict the processing if one of the following grounds is applicable:
“Restriction of processing” means that the personal data is processed only with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims or for safeguarding the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of some other important public interest. Before I lift the restriction I am under an obligation to inform you accordingly.
5.5 Right to data portability
You have a right to data portability if the processing has its basis in your consent (art. 6(1) sent. 1 lit. a or art. 9(2) lit. a GDPR) or in a contract to which you are a contractual party, and the processing is effected by using automated procedures. In such case, the right to data portability includes the following rights provided that these do not infringe on the rights and freedoms of other persons:
5.6 Right to object
If the processing has its basis in art. 6(1) sent. 1 lit. e GDPR (performing of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority) or in art. 6(1) sent. 1 lit. f GDPR (legitimate interest of the controller or a third party), then you have the right to object, at any time, to the processing of the personal data on you on grounds relating to your particular situation. This also applies for a profiling founded on art. 6(1) sent. 1 lit. e or lit. f GDPR. Once you have exercised your right to object I will no longer process your personal data unless I can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing is aimed at the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
You may object, at any time, to the processing of personal data on you for purposes of direct marketing. This also applies to a profiling in the context of such direct marketing. Once you have exercised your right to object I will no longer use your personal data for purposes of direct marketing.
You have the option of notifying me of your objection without observing any particular form by phone, by e-mail or by using the postal address of pro editorial office dr. pasternak as specified at the beginning of this data privacy statement.
5.7 Right to revoke your consent
You have the right to revoke your consent at any time with future effect. The revocation of consent may be notified without observing any particular form by phone, by e-mail or by using my postal address. Such revocation does not affect the lawfulness of the processing which had occurred on the basis of the consent until the revocation was received. Upon receipt of the revocation,
any data processing which was exclusively based on your consent will be terminated.
5.8 Right to lodge a complaint
If you feel that the processing of the personal data on you is unlawful, you may lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority for data protection that is responsible for your place of abode or work or for the place of the alleged breach.
6. Date of and updates to this data privacy statement
This data privacy statement reflects the status as of 24 May 2018.
