4. Collection of personal data when contact is made
On our website, we offer different ways for users to get in touch with us. It is possible to contact TMG by email, telephone, fax and mail. When you contact us, we store your contact information, e.g. email address or telephone number, and he personal user data included in the message. Processing this data serves the purpose to enable us to contact you and to deal with your request.
Right of access Article 15 GDPR You are entitled to request information from TMG on whether we are processing any personal data related to yourself. If we do, you can further request information from the controller on the following:
- the purposes to which the personal data is being processed;
- the categories of personal data processed;
- the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data relating to yourself is or will be disclosed;
- the period for which the personal data relating to yourself is intended to remain on record or, if this cannot be specified, the criteria for defining the storage period;
- whether you are entitled to demand correction or deletion of the personal data relating to yourself, to demand limitation of processing by the controller or to object to processing;
- whether you are entitled to file a complaint with a supervisory authority;
- everything available on the data’s source if the entity you are enquiring with did not obtain it themselves;
- whether personal data concerning you are transferred to a third country or to an international organisation; in this event you have the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Article 46 GDPR concerning the transfer;
- whether there was any automated decision-making and profiling as per art. 22 paragraphs 1 and 4 GDPR and – at least where such was the case – useful information on the underlying logic and the impact and pursued effects of this processing on the data subject.
Right to rectification Article 16 GDPR You have the right to rectification and/or completion by the controller if the personal data processed that relates to you is incorrect or incomplete. TMG will make the correction without undue delay.
Right to restriction of processing Article 18 GDPR Under the following conditions, you can obtain a restriction of processing of personal data concerning you:
- if the accuracy of the personal data is contested by you, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
- if the processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests the restriction of their use instead;
- if the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by you for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, or
- if you objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override your grounds.
If processing the personal data relating to yourself has been limited, the data can without your consent be used neither to assert, exercise or defend legal claims nor to enforce protection of another individual’s or legal entity’s rights nor can it be processed in the public interest of the European Union or one of its member states. This does not apply to the storing of the data. If processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be notified by the controller before any restrictions are lifted.
Right to erasure Article 17 GDPR You can request that the controller delete the personal data relating to yourself immediately; the controller is then obliged to delete the data immediately, provided one of the following conditions applies:
- The personal data relating to yourself is no longer required to achieve the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
- You withdraw your consent, under which processing became legitimate as per art. 6 paragraph 1 point a or art. 9 paragraph 2 point a GDPR, and there is no other legal basis for processing.
- You object to processing as per art. 21 paragraph 1 GDPR and your objection is not overridden by legitimate reasons for processing, or you object to processing as per art. 21 paragraph 2 GDPR.
- The personal data relating to yourself have been processed unlawfully.
- Deletion of the personal relating to yourself is necessary for the controller to fulfil a legal obligation imposed upon them by European Union law or the national laws of European Union member states.
- The personal data relating to yourself has been collected in connection with the offer of information society services as per art. 8 paragraph 1 GDPR.
If the controller has published personal data relating to yourself and has become obliged to delete it as per art. 17 paragraph 1 GDPR, the controller will take action, including technical measures, using the available technology and at appropriate expense with the aim of notifying any controllers processing your personal data that you as the data subject have requested deletion of all links to said personal data or to copies or reproductions thereof. The right to erasure becomes void if processing is necessary
- to exercise of the right to free expression and information;
- to fulfil a legal obligation requiring the controller to process the data imposed upon them by European Union law or the national laws of a European Union member state, or to complete a duty in the public interest or to perform executive duties appointed to the controller;
- in the interests of public health and safety as per art. 9 paragraph 2 points h and i and art. 9 paragraph 3 GDPR;
- for archiving purposes in the public interest, for scientific or historical research or for statistical purposes as per art. 89 paragraph 1 GDPR, provided that the right described in section a) can be reasonably assumed to prevent or seriously impede achievement of the processing purposes;
- to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
Right to object Article 21 GDPR You are entitled to object for reasons arising from your own personal situation at any time against processing of personal data relating to yourself where processing is legitimised by art. 6 paragraph 1 points e or f GDPR; this applies in equal measure to profiling legitimised by these provisions. The controller will cease to process your personal data unless they can prove compelling legitimate reasons for processing that override your interests, rights and liberties or processing pursues the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. If personal data relating to yourself is processed for the purpose of direct advertising, you are entitled to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for this purpose; this applies equally to profiling where it occurs in connection with such direct advertising. If you object to processing for direct advertising, the personal data relating to yourself will no longer be processed for this purpose. You may, in connection with the use of information society services – Directive 2002/58/EC notwithstanding – exercise your right to object by means of automated methods that are subject to technical specifications.
Right to data portability Article 20 GDPR You have the right to receive the personal data concerning yourself that you have provided to TMG in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You are also entitled to transmit this data to another controller without TMG data hindering you from doing so and if
- you have consented to processing as per art. 6 paragraph 1 point a GDPR or art. 9 paragraph 2 point a GDPR or processing is governed by a contract as per art. 6 paragraph 1 point b GDPR and
- processing occurs using automated methods.
When exercising this right, you can further request controllers to send the personal data relating to yourself directly to another controller, provided this is technically feasible. This must not adversely affect the liberties and rights of others. The right to data portability does not extend to the processing of personal data where such processing is necessary for fulfilling a duty in the public interest or for exercising executive duties appointed to the controller.
Automated individual decision-making, including profiling You have the right not to be subject to any decision that entails legal implications for yourself or has similar, substantially adverse effects on yourself, if said decision is based solely on automated processing; this includes profiling. You do not have this right if the decision
- is necessary to allow conclusion or fulfilment of a contract between yourself and the controller,
- is legitimate under the legal provisions of the European Union or its member states to which the controller is subject and these legal provisions include appropriate measures safeguarding your rights, liberties and legitimate personal interests or
- is made with your express consent.
However, such decisions may have been made based on personal data of special categories as per art. 9 paragraph 1 GDPR unless art. 9 paragraph 2 points a or g GDPR also apply and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights, liberties and legitimate personal interests. With respect to cases (1) and (3), the controller shall take appropriate precautions to protect your rights, liberties and legitimate personal interests; such precautions will include at least the right to enforce intervention by a human individual at the controller’s, to put forward your own opinion and to contest the decision.
Right to complain with a supervisory authority If you believe that processing of personal data relating to yourself is in breach of the GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, particularly in the EU member state you, your place of work or the locale of the alleged infringement are in. This does not affect your recourse to other administrative or judicial remedies. The supervisory authority receiving the complaint will keep the appellant up to date on status and results of the complaint, including on recourse to judicial remedies as per art. 78 GDPR.9. Changes to our data policy We reserve the right to amend this data policy to keep it in line with the latest legal requirements or to adjust it to reflect changes to our services, e.g. if we introduce new services. The latest version of our data policy will apply to any further visits.
