We will provide you with a copy of the personal data which is the subject of the processing. If we have substantiated doubts, then we will request additional information for confirmation of the identity of the person affected.

You have the right to request from us the correction of incorrect personal data pertaining to you. Under consideration of the purposes of the processing, you have the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data — also by way of a supplementary declaration.

+ Right of deletion

Deletion of your personal data occurs if you assert a claim for deletion and no statutory retention rights or obligations contradict this. Furthermore, we always delete your personal data if the data is no longer required for the fulfilment of the purpose associated with the storage or if the storage is not permissible for other legal reasons, and if the deletion does not contradict the statutory retention periods. 

+ Right of limitation of processing 

You are entitled to request a limitation of the processing of your personal data if the personal data is not accurate, and this for the duration which enables VEKA AG to check the accuracy of the personal data. If the processing is unlawful and you refuse the deletion of the personal data, and instead request the limitation of the use of your personal data from us, then we shall comply with your request. The deletion of data also does not occur if we require it for the assertion, exercising or defence of our own legal claims, or if you have objected to the processing acc. Article 21 Paragraph 1 GDPR, provided it is not yet established whether the entitled reasons given by VEKA AG outweigh your reasons. 

+ Right to appeal against processing

You have the right to appeal at any time against the processing of your personal data which occurs due to Art. 6 of the GDPR. VEKA AG shall not process your personal data any more in case of an appeal, unless we can verify compelling legitimate reasons for the processing which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the affected persons, or the processing serves the assertion, exercising or defence of legal claims.

+ Right of data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data pertaining to you which you have provided to us in a structured, conventional and machine-readable format, and to transmit this data to another responsible person without obstruction by us. The prerequisite is that the processing is based on consent acc. Art. 6 or Art. 9 of the GDPR or on a contract, and that the processing occurs with the assistance of an automated procedure. Furthermore, you have the right to personal data being directly transmitted by VEKA AG to another responsible agency, provided this is technically feasible.
