This screening is documented in writing and contracts for Data Processing (DPA) only granted if the requirements of Art 28 GDPR are met.

Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:
• Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
• Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
• Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
• Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground.
• Request the restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal data about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
• Request the transfer of your personal data to another party.
When requesting information you will need to provide sufficient data about your identity, as well as valid proof that you are the person whose information is involved. The information we will provide pertains to your stored personal data, how the data was obtained, the recipient or recipient categories with whom the categories were shared, as well as the purpose for storing the data.
You may contact us at any time to exercise these rights. Please contact our data protection specialist for this purpose:
