Rights of the persons concerned
In connection with the processing of personal data, the persons concerned below are entitled by law to the following rights. Please note that their existence and scope may vary depending on specific applicable data protection legislation:
- Information: Persons concerned have the right to learn from SCHILLER whether and/or which personal data is being processed by them. For this purpose, requests for information may be made.
- Correction: If personal data are incorrect, the persons concerned have a legal right to correction.
- Objection: If the processing of personal data is based on the legitimate interests of SCHILLER, the persons concerned may object to the processing of their personal data. This shall only apply if they are in such a special situation that their personal interest precludes the processing of their personal data. Here too, compelling, overriding reasons for SCHILLER remain reserved. Please also note that persons concerned may object to the use of their personal data for direct mail. Processing based on other reasons is unaffected by objections.

- Restriction: Under certain conditions, the person concerned may demand the restriction of the processing of his personal data. This takes place, for example, if the accuracy of the data is doubted. Please keep in mind that this may limit or even make impossible the provision of services by SCHILLER.
- Data portability: Depending on the applicable data protection law, the personal data provided to us by the person concerned may be reclaimed in a common and machine-readable format and - subject to significant conflicting interests - reused.
- Deletion: The person concerned has a legal right to delete his personal data, if they are no longer needed for the purpose for which they were collected or in case of justified objection. In any case, the use for legal reasons as well as the assertion, exercise and defence of legal claims remains reserved.
