One of the main objectives of data protection legislation is to grant you certain options for controlling your personal data after data processing has already begun. For this purpose, data subjects have various rights which we must observe immediately upon your request (or, in any case, within one (1) month of your request). To exercise your rights, contact us at the following e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Specifically, you have the following rights:
(a) Should you exercise your right to information, and no legal restrictions apply, we will provide you with comprehensive information about our processing of your data. To do so, we will provide you with (i) copies of the data (e-mails, database excerpts, etc.), as well as information related to (ii) specifically processed data, (iii) processing purposes, (iv) categories of data being processed, (v) data recipients, (vi) storage limits and/or criteria for determining these, (vii) the origin of the data, and (viii) other information, as necessary, depending on your specific case. Please note, however, that we cannot issue any documents which could infringe upon the rights of other persons.
(b) With your right to correction, you can request that we correct information that we have recorded incorrectly, that is no longer correct or that is incomplete (for the specific processing purposes in question). Your request will be evaluated, during which time you can request for the data processing in question to be restricted until the evaluation is complete.
(c) The right to (data) deletion can be exercised (i) in the event that there is no necessity with regard to the processing purpose, (ii) in case you withdraw your consent, (iii) in case of a special objection, if the data processing in question is based on Silhouette’s legitimate interests, (iv) in case of improper data processing, (v) in the event that there is a legal requirement to delete the data, and (vi) in case of processing of personal data referring to minors under the age of 16.
(d) In specific cases, the data subject has a right to restriction of processing. After this right is exercised, the data in question can only be stored. In addition to the option of restriction during the evaluation period for data corrections, this extends to (i) unlawful data processing (insofar as no deletion is requested) and (ii) the duration of the evaluation of a special objection.
(e) Furthermore, you have a fundamental right to object to data processing at any time. This only applies whenever the processing is based on Silhouette’s legitimate interests. Please note, however, that legitimate interests can only be invoked as a legal basis for processing activities in specific cases.
(f) You can also exercise your right to complain to supervisory authorities (see point 11).
Please also note that in some cases we will be unable to comply with your request due to mandatory, protected reasons for processing (weighing of interests) and/or processing based on the exertion, exercise or defence of legal claims (on our side). The same applies in the case of excessive requests, in which case (as in the case of compliance with manifestly unfounded requests), a fee may be imposed.
