Your rights as an affected person

As far as your personal data are processed on the occasion of the visit of our website, you as the "affected person" in the sense of the basic data protection regulation have the following rights:


You can ask us for information about whether or not personal data is processed by you. No right of information exists if the award of the coveted information would violate the obligation of confidentiality pursuant to § 83 tax consulting act or the information for other reasons, in particular because of a predominantly legitimate interest of a third party, must be kept secret. Notwithstanding this, an obligation to provide information may exist if, in particular, taking into account impending damage, your interests outweigh the interest in secrecy. The right of access to information is also excluded if the data is stored only because they may not be deleted due to statutory or statutory retention periods, or solely for purposes of data protection or privacy control. Provided that the provision of information would require a disproportionately high effort and that processing for other purposes is excluded by appropriate technical and organisational measures. If in your case the right of information is not excluded and your personal data are processed by us, you can request information from us about the following:

  • purpose of processing,
  • categories of personal data that you process,
  • recipients or categories of recipients to whom your personal data are disclosed, in particular for recipients in third countries,
  • if possible, the planned duration for which your personal data will be stored or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining the duration of storage,
  • the right to rectify or delete or restrict the processing of personal data concerning you or a right to object to such processing,
  • the existence of a right of appeal to a data protection supervisory authority,
  • if the personal data have not been collected from you as the data subject, the information available on the origin of the data,
  • the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling and meaningful information on the logic involved, as well as the scope and intended impact of automated decision-making, where appropriate;
  • if applicable, in the case of transmission to recipients in third countries, unless there is a decision by the EU Commission on the adequacy of the protection level under article 45 (3) GDPR, information on which suitable guarantees pursuant to article 46 (2) GDPR for the protection of personal data.

Correction and completion

If you discover that we have inaccurate personal information, you may require us to promptly correct this incorrect information. In case of incomplete personal data concerning you, you can request the completion.


You have a right to be erased ("right to be forgotten") if provided that the processing is not required to exercise the right to freedom of expression or to fulfill a legal obligation or to carry out a task of public interest as well as one of the following is true:

  • The personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were processed.
  • The justification for processing was only your consent, which you have revoked.
  • You have objected to the processing of your personal data that we have made public.
  • You have objected to the processing of personal data not disclosed to us and there are no legitimate reasons for the processing.
  • Your personal data has been processed unlawfully.
  • The deletion of personal data is required to fulfill a legal obligation to which we are subject.
There is no claim for deletion if, in the case of legitimate non-automated data processing, deletion is not possible or only possible with disproportionately high outlay due to the special nature of the storage and your interest in deletion is low. In this case, the deletion is replaced by the restriction of processing.

Restriction of processing

You may require us to restrict processing if any of the following applies:

  • You deny the accuracy of your personal data. The restriction may be required in this case for the duration that allows us to verify the accuracy of the data.
  • The processing is unlawful and you require instead of deletion the restriction of the use of your personal data.
  • We no longer need your personal information for the purposes of processing, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend your rights.
  • You have objected to article 21 (1) GDPR. The limitation of processing may be required as long as it is not certain that our legitimate reasons outweigh your reasons.
Restriction of processing means that the personal data will be processed only with your consent or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest. Before we lift the restriction, we have a duty to inform you.

Data portability

You have the right of data transferability if the processing is based on your consent (article 6 (1) sentence 1 (a) or article 9 (2) (a) GDPR or on a contract to which you are a party and the processing is done using automated procedures. The right to data portability in this case includes the following rights, provided that this does not affect the rights and freedoms of others: You may require us to receive the personal information you provide us in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You have the right to transfer this data to another person without hindrance on our part. If technically feasible, you may require us to transfer your personal information directly to another person in charge.


Insofar as the processing is based on article 6 (1) sentence 1 (e) of the GDPR (exercise of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority) or on article 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR (legitimate interest of the controller or a third party), you have the right, at any time, to object to the processing of the personal data concerning you for reasons of your particular situation. This also applies to a profiling based on article 6 (1) sentence 1 (e) or (f) of the GDPR. After exercising your right to object, we will no longer process your personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the purposes of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.

You may at any time object to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes. This also applies to a profiling associated with such direct mail. After exercising this right of objection, we will no longer use the personal data concerned for direct marketing purposes.

You have the option of informing us informally, by telephone, by e-mail, if necessary by fax or to our postal address listed at the beginning of this privacy policy.

Revocation of consent

You have the right to revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. The revocation of the consent can be communicated by phone, by e-mail, possibly by fax or to our postal address informal.

Upon receipt of the revocation, the data processing, which was based solely on your consent, is set.


If you believe that the processing of your personal information is unlawful, you may lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority that has jurisdiction over your place of residence or employment or the location of the alleged breach.
