Pursuant to Art. 15 GDPR, you have the right to obtain from us information as to whether we have stored personal Data concerning you and, if yes, which Data we have stored for what purposes, where such Data come from, and to which recipients or categories of recipients such Data might possibly be passed on.

When you delete your customer account, we will erase the Data concerning you, unless we are authorised to store such Data in order to fulfil contracts not yet fully performed, to assert legal claims or to comply with legal requirements.

To the extent that we process Data to safeguard our interests only on the basis of point (f) of Art. 6(1) GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of such Data on grounds relating to your particular situation.
