Information concerning the rights of the data subjects
The data subject has the right to request confirmation as to whether personal data concerning him or her is being processed; where this is the case, he or she has a right of access to this personal data and to the information specified in Article 15 GDPR.
The data subject has the right to immediately request the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her and, if necessary, the completion of incomplete personal data (Article 16 GDPR).
The data subject also has the right to request that personal data concerning him or her be erased immediately if one of the criteria set out in Article 17 GDPR is met, e.g. if the data are no longer required for the purposes for which they were collected (right to erasure).
The data subject has the right to obtain from the controller restriction of processing if one of the criteria set out in Article 18 GDPR is met, e.g. pending verification by the controller if the data subject has objected to processing.
The data subject is entitled to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning him or her on grounds relating to his or her particular situation. The controller shall then no longer process the personal data unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (Article 21 GDPR).
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, every data subject shall have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if the data subject considers that the processing of personal data relating to him or her infringes the General Data Protection Regulation (Article 77 GDPR). The data subject can exercise this right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority in the Member State of his or her habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement. The relevant supervisory authority in Lower Saxony is as follows: State Commissioner for Data Protection in Lower Saxony, Prinzenstrasse 5, 30159 Hanover, tel. +49 (0)51 1120 4500, fax +49 (0)51 1120 4599.
