If data processing is performed based on Article 6 Para. 1 (e) or (f) of the GDPR, you have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of your personal data at any time; this also applies for profiling based on those provisions. Please consult the data privacy statement for further information on the legal basis for specific processing.
If you exercise your right to object, we shall no longer process the personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing of your personal data which override your interests, rights and freedoms or the further processing of your personal data is required for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (objection in accordance with Article 21 Para. 1 of the GDPR).

- If the processing of your personal data is being / was performed unlawfully, you may request erasure of the data instead of restriction of the data processing.
- If we no longer require your personal data, but you do require them for the exercise, defence or establishment of legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of their erasure.
- If you have exercised your right to object in accordance with Article 21 Para. 1 of the GDPR, your interest and our interests must be weighed against each other.
