8. What rights do I have?
As the data subject, you are entitled to the following data protection rights:
Access: You have the right to request access to personal data related to you which is stored at Genfoot Inc. and to inquire about the scope of data processing and data transfer performed by Genfoot Inc. and to obtain a copy of your stored personal data.
Rectification: With respect to your personal data stored at Genfoot Inc., you have the right to demand the immediate rectification of incorrect personal data and you have the right to have incomplete personal data completed.
Erasure: You have the right to demand the immediate deletion or erasure of your personal data stored by Genfoot Inc., if the legal requirements are satisfied. This is the case, in particular, if:
• your personal data is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected;
• the sole legal basis for processing such data was your consent, and you have withdrawn such consent;
• you have objected to processing on the legal grounds relating to your particular situation, and we cannot prove that there are overriding legitimate grounds for processing;
• your personal data was processed unlawfully; or
• your personal data must be erased in order to comply with legal requirements.
If we have transmitted your data to third parties, we will inform them about the erasure to the extent required by law.
Please note that your right to erasure is subject to certain limitations. For example, we may not and/or must not erase data that we are still required to retain due to statutory retention obligations. In addition, your right of erasure does not extend to data that we need in order to assert, exercise or defend ourselves against legal claims, unless other grounds for continued storage exist.
Restriction of the processing: Under certain conditions, you have the right to request that processing be limited (i.e., the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting its processing in the future). The requirements are:
• The accuracy of your personal data is contested by you and Genfoot Inc. must verify the accuracy of the personal data;
• The processing is unlawful, but you oppose the erasure of the personal data and request the restriction of its use instead;
• Genfoot Inc. no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but you require the data to establish, exercise or defend your legal claims.
• You have objected to processing pending the verification of whether the legitimate grounds of Genfoot Inc. override your legitimate grounds.
Where processing has been restricted, such data will be marked accordingly and, with the exception of storage, will be processed only with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest the EU or an EU Member State.
Data portability: To the extent that we automatically process your personal data that you have provided to us based on your consent or any contract with you, you have the right to receive such data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit that data to another controller without hindrance from Genfoot Inc. You also have the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from Genfoot Inc. to another controller where technically feasible, provided that such transmission does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
Withdrawal of consent: If you have given consent to the processing of your personal data, you can then withdraw such consent at any time. Please note that the withdrawal applies prospectively only. Processing that occurred before the withdrawal of consent is unaffected.
Complaint: Furthermore, you have a right to file a complaint with a data protection authority (Datenschutzaufsichtsbehörde), if you believe that the processing of your personal data is unlawful. The right to file a complaint is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial entity.
Right to object: To the extent that we are relying on our legitimate interests to use your personal data, you have the right to object to such use, and we must stop such processing unless we can either demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the use that override your interests, rights and freedoms or where we need to process the data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. In addition, you can object to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing without providing any reason. We will then cease the processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes.
