Right to object on a case-by-case basis                                                                                     

You have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 e) GDPR or Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f) GDPR for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. We will then no longer process that data for those purposes, unless we can provide compelling and legitimate reasons for the processing, which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims. 

Right to object to the processing of personal data for direct marketing purposes                   

In individual cases we process your data for direct marketing purposes. You have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such marketing activities.  The same applies to profiling insofar as it is connected to direct marketing. If you object to the data processing for direct marketing purposes, then your personal data will no longer be processed for that purpose.

Withdrawal of consent: If you have given us consent to the processing of you data, you can withdraw that consent at any time with effect for the future. The withdrawal of consent will not affect the lawfulness of processing of your data before the withdrawal. In addition to the ways mentioned in "Assertion of your rights", you can also withdraw your consent following the respective instructions for the "Withdrawal of consent" in the section "Services & Cookies".

Assertion of your rights: In order to assert any of your aforementioned rights please contact us via or by post using the address mention in point 1. Please ensure that a clear identification of you as an individual is possible. 

Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority: You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you is unlawful.
