10. Rights of the data subject
You may assert the following rights with respect to data processing:
Right to information
You can demand confirmation of whether, and to what extent, personal information about you is processed.
Right to rectification
If we process incomplete or inaccurate personal data concerning you, you have the right, at any time, to demand that the data should be corrected or completed.
If you have set up a user account, you can access your personal data and correct or complete them yourself at any time. You can furthermore close the user account at any time.
Right to erasure
You can demand the erasure of your personal data if the purpose for which they were collected ceases to apply, the processing is unlawful, the processing encroaches unduly upon your legitimate protection interests, or if the data processing requires your consent and you have withdrawn that consent. It is important to note that there may be other grounds opposing the immediate erasure of your data, e.g. the legal obligation to retain data, pending actions, the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, etc.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to require restriction of the processing of your data if:
- you contest the accuracy of the data, for a period that enables us to verify the accuracy of the data,
- the processing of your data is unlawful, but you oppose the erasure and instead request a restriction in the use of the data,
- we no longer need the data for the intended purpose, but you need the data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, or
- you have objected to the processing of the data.
Right to data portability
You can require us to provide you with the data that you have made available to us, and to do so in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, if we process those data on the basis of consent you have given or in performance of a contract with you, and the processing is carried out by automated means.
Right to object
If we process your data in the performance of tasks which are in the public interest, in the exercise of state authority or if we invoke the necessity of protecting our legitimate interests in support of the processing, you may enter an objection against the data processing, providing that an overriding interest in the protection of your data exists. You may object at any time, without citing reasons, to advertising being sent to you.
Right to lodge a complaint
If you consider that, in processing your data, we have violated Austrian or European data protection legislation and thereby infringed your rights, we ask you to contact us so that matters can be clarified. Naturally you also have the right to lodge a complaint with the Austrian Data Protection Authority and/or a European supervisory authority.
Right to revoke
All declarations of consent made by you can be revoked at any time, independently of each other. The effect of revocation is that we thenceforward cease to process your data for the purposes set out in the declaration of consent, and that consequently the rights, benefits, etc. associated therewith no longer apply.
These rights can be asserted directly by contacting Kongresskultur Bregenz GmbH at the email address email@example.com. In doubtful cases we may request additional information for the confirmation of your identity. This is in order to protect your rights and your privacy.
