2. General information and mandatory information
Please be aware that there are inherent security risks in transmitting data via the Internet (e.g. e-mail communication). It is not possible to safeguard data completely against unauthorised access by third parties.
INFORMATION ON THE CONTROLLER
The controller for data processing on this website is:
Digital Future GmbH
The controller is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).
WITHDRAWAL OF YOUR CONSENT TO DATA PROCESSING
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can withdraw consent you have already granted at any time. An informal e-mail is sufficient for this. The legality of the data processing carried out up to the withdrawal remains unaffected by the withdrawal.
RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE COLLECTION OF DATA IN SPECIAL CASES AND TO DIRECT ADVERTISING (ART. 21 GDPR)
Where your personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to lodge an objection at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling, to the extent that it is associated with such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for the purpose of direct marketing (objection pursuant to Art. 21 (2) GDPR).
RIGHT TO COMPLAIN TO THE COMPETENT SUPERVISORY AUTHORITY
In the event of a breach of the GDPR, data subjects shall have a right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state of their usual place of residence, place of work or the place of the alleged breach. The right to complain is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.
RIGHT TO DATA PORTABILITY
You have the right to have data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract
handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only take place as far as technically feasible.
INFORMATION, BLOCKING, ERASURE AND RECTIFICATION
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about the personal data we have stored about you, their origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if applicable, you have a right to rectification, blocking or erasure of these data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the Imprint for this and other questions on the subject of personal data.
RIGHT TO RESTRICTION OF PROCESSING
You have the right to request the restriction of processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the Imprint for this. The right to restriction of
processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we will usually need time to verify this. For the duration of this verification, you have the right to request the restriction of processing of your personal data.
- If your personal data have been/are being processed unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
- If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR, a balancing of your and our interests must be carried out. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests are greater, you have the right to request the restriction of processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, such data may only be processed – apart from being stored – with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a member state.
