6. Rights of the Data Subject
6.1) Right to Confirmation
All data subjects have the right, as granted to them by the European Legislature, to demand confirmation of whether their personal data are being processed. If a data subject wishes to use their right to confirmation, they can contact an employee of the data controlling organization at any time for this purpose.
6.2) Right of Access
Any subject whose data are being processed has the right granted to them by the European Legislature to access the personal data relating to them free of charge and to receive a copy of these data at any time. Furthermore, the European Legislature grants the data subject access to the following information: the purpose for processing; the personal data categories which are being processed; the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data are being or have been published, in particular this applies to recipients in third countries or international organizations; where possible, the planned personal data retention period, or where this is not possible, the criteria for determining the duration of this period; the existence of the right to rectification or deletion of the subject’s personal data or a right to restrict its processing by the data controller or the right to object to its processing; the existence of a right to complain to a Data Protection Authority where the personal data are collected from elsewhere than the data subject: All available information about the origin of the data; the existence of an automated decision-making process that uses profiling as per Art. 22 (1) and (4) GDPR and—at least in these cases—meaningful information about the logic involved and the scope of the intended impact of this kind of processing for the data subject Furthermore, the data subject has a right to information about whether personal data are being transmitted to a third country or an international organization. Where this is the case, the data subject also has the right to information about the relevant guarantees in relation to the data transfer. If a data subject wishes to use their right to access, they can contact an employee of the data controlling organization at any time for this purpose.
6.3) Right of Rectification
Any subject whose data are being processed has the right granted to them by the European Legislature to demand the immediate rectification of incorrect personal data relating to them. Furthermore, the data subject has the right, as appropriate to the purpose of the processing, to demand the completion of incomplete personal data—including by means of a supplementary statement. If a data subject wishes to use their right to rectification, they can contact an employee of the data controlling organization at any time for this purpose.
6.4) Right to Deletion (Right to be Forgotten)
Any subject whose personal data are being processed is granted the right by the European Legislature to demand the Data Controller to delete their personal data immediately provided one of the following reasons applies and the processing is not necessary: The personal data were collected for a purpose or processed in such a way that they are no longer necessary. The data subject revoked their consent, which permitted the processing of their data as per Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR or Art. 9 (2) a) GDPR and there is no other legal basis for processing these data. The data subject prohibits data processing as per Art. 21 (1) GDPR and there are no overriding legal bases for data processing or the data subject objects to data processing as per Art. 21 (2) GDPR. These personal data are being processed illegally. The deletion of personal data is required to fulfill the legal obligation under EU law or Member State law to which the Data Controller is subject.
Personal data are collected in relation to information society services as per Art. 8 (1) GDPR. Provided one of the aforementioned reasons applies and a data subject wishes to trigger the deletion of their personal data that are stored by the company, the subject may contact an employee of the Data Controller at any time. The company employee will ensure that the deletion request is completed without delay.
If the personal data have been published by the company and the company is the Data Controller as per Art. 17 (1) GDPR and is therefore required to delete the data, the company is also required, within reasonable technology availability and implementation costs, including technical means, to inform other Data Controllers who are processing the data that the data subject requests the deletion of all links to these personal data and copies or replications of these data by these data controllers provided that the processing is not necessary. Company employees will action this as necessary in each individual case.
6.5) Right to Restrict Processing
Any subject whose data are being processed has the right granted to them by the European Legislature to demand a restriction on the processing of their data by the Data Controller if one of the following criteria is met: The correctness of the personal data is contested by the data subject. In this case for a duration in which the Data Controller can verify the correctness of the personal data. The processing is illegal, the data subject refuses deletion of their personal data, instead requesting a restriction on the use of their personal data. The Data Controller no longer requires the personal data for the purpose of the processing but the data subject requires them to assert, implement or defend legal claims. The data subject has issued an objection to the processing as per Art. 21 (1) GDPR and it has not yet been determined whether the Data Controller’s legitimate reasons override those of the data subject. Provided one of the aforementioned criteria is met and a data subject requests a restriction on their personal data that is stored by the company, the subject may contact an employee of the Data Controller at any time. Company employees will action this restriction on processing.
6.6) Right of Portability
Any subject whose data are being processed is granted the right by the European Legislature to receive their personal data that they as the data subject have made available to a data controller, in a structured, standard, machine-readable format. They also have the right to transmit these data to another Data Controller without being impeded by the Data Controller to whom the data were originally made available, provided the processing was based on consent as per Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR or Art. 9 (2) a) GDPR or an agreement as per Art. 6 (1) b GDPR and the processing took place using automated methods, provided the processing is not required for the fulfillment of a job that is in the public interest or an exercise of official authority which has been transferred to the Data Controller. Furthermore, the data subject has the right, when exercising their right to data portability as per Art. 20 (1) GDPR, to have their personal data transferred directly from one Data Controller to another Data Controller provided that this is technically feasible and does not impact the rights and freedoms of other persons. In order to exercise their right to data portability, the data subject can contact an employee of the company at any time.
6.7) Right to Object
Any subject whose data are being processed is granted the right by the European Legislature to object to the processing of relevant personal data for reasons relating to their own specific situation where the processing is taking place on the basis of Art. 6 (1) e) or f) GDPR. This also applies to assisted profiling where these provisions apply. In the case of an objection, the company will cease to process the personal data unless we can prove necessary reasons for the processing which are worthy of protection and override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or where the processing is for the purpose of asserting, implementing or defending legal claims. If the company is processing personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, the data subject has the right to lodge an objection against the processing of their personal data for the purpose of direct marketing at any time. This also applies to profiling, to the extent that this is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject raises an objection to the company for processing their data for the purpose of direct marketing, the company will no longer process the personal data for this purpose. Furthermore, the data subject has the right to lodge an objection against the processing of their personal data for reasons pertaining to their specific situation where the company is processing this data for purposes of scientific or historical research or for statistical purposes, as per Art. 89 (1) GDPR, unless such processing is necessary to fulfill a task in the public interest. To exercise the right to object, the data subject can directly contact any company employee or other employee. The data subject may also, at their discretion, in conjunction with information society services and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, exercise their right to object via automated processes using technical specifications.
6.8) Automated Decisions in Individual Cases, including Profiling
Any subject whose data are being processed has the right granted to them by the European Legislature not to be subjected to a decision made purely on the basis of automated processing—including profiling—that has a legal impact on the subject or infringes upon them in a similar manner provided the decision (1) is not necessary for the completion or fulfillment of a contract between the data subject and the Data Controller or (2) is permissible on the basis of European Union or Member State legislation to which the Data Controller is subject and this legislation contains suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights, freedoms and legitimate interests or (3) takes place on the basis of the data subject’s express consent. If the decision is (1) necessary for the completion or fulfillment of a contract between the data subject and the Data Controller or (2) takes place with the express consent of the data subject then the company shall use suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights, freedoms and legitimate interests. These measures shall, at minimum, include the right to trigger the involvement of a person on behalf of the Data Controller to present their point of view and the right to appeal the decision. If the data subject wishes to exercise their rights with regard to automated decisions, they can contact an employee of the data controlling organization at any time for this purpose.
6.9) Right to Revoke Consent in Data Protection Matters
Any subject whose data are being processed has the right granted to them by the European Legislature to revoke consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the data subject wishes to exercise their right to revoke consent to data processing, they can contact an employee of the data controlling organization at any time for this purpose.
7. Data Privacy in the case of Applications and Application Processes
The Data Controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application process. Processing may take place using electronic methods. This is especially the case when an applicant transmits relevant application documents to the Data Controller using electronic methods such as email or a form on a web page. If the Data Controller concludes an employment contract with the applicant, the data transmitted are then saved in accordance with legal requirements for the purposes of handling the employment relationship. If the Data Controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant then the application documents will automatically be deleted two months after the applicant is notified of their rejection, provided that deletion is not an obstacle to any other legitimate interests of the Data Controller. Here, other legitimate interests could include the burden of proof in a case under the General Act on Equal Treatment.
8. The Duration for which Personal Data are Retained
The criterion determining the duration for which personal data are retained is the applicable statutory retention period. When this period expires, the relevant data are deleted as a matter of routine provided that they are no longer required to fulfill or initiate a contract.
9. Legal or Contractual Requirements to Provide Personal Data
We point out that we may be required to provide personal data due to legal obligations (e.g. fiscal regulations) or to fulfill contractual stipulations (e.g. information about a contractual counterparty/co-contractor). Sometimes, to form a contract, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data which we must subsequently process. For example, the data subject is required to provide us with personal data if our company is concluding a contract with the subject. Failure to provide personal data would result in an inability to conclude the contract with the data subject. Before providing personal data, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will explain whether the provision of personal data is legally or contractually required in this case, or whether it is needed to conclude a contract and whether there is a requirement to provide the personal data, as well as the consequences of not providing the personal data.
