If we are a processor, these purposes and means are determined by another person who holds your personal data as a controller. This may be in particular your business partners, to whom you instruct us to provide your personal data.

G. WHAT ARE YOUR RIGHTS WHEN PROCESSING PERSONAL DATA?

G.1. Withdrawal of consent

However, failure to grant or withdraw consent for any of the above purposes above will not affect the possibility of sending our business/marketing communications in accordance with our legitimate interest (see the above purpose "Promotion of our brand and marketing communication"“).
In all cases of processing based on consent, you can withdraw it by sending an e-mail to the address of the or by any other action from which it will be clear to us that you wish to withdraw your consent. It is necessary to send it under the e-mail that we have registered with you so that we can verify that it is really you.
In the event of withdrawal of consent, we will assume that you no longer wish us to continue to process your personal data for marketing purposes, even on the basis of any previously granted marketing consents or any specific marketing consents.

c) you exercise your right to object to processing (see below section "Right to object to processing") for personal data that we process on the basis of our legitimate interests and we find that we no longer have any such legitimate interests that would justify such processing, or

We must restrict the processing of personal data when:
a) you deny the accuracy of the personal data before we agree on what data is correct;
b) We process your personal data without a sufficient legal basis (e.g. beyond what we have to process), but you will only prefer to limit such data before deleting it (e.g. if you expect to provide us with such data in the future anyway);
c) We no longer need your personal data for the above processing purposes, but you require it for the establishment, exercise or defence of your legal claims, or
d) you object to the processing as described in more detail below in the section "Right to object to processing". For the period during which we investigate, if your objection is justified, we are obliged to restrict the processing of your personal data.

You have the right to object to the processing of personal data that takes place on the basis of our legitimate interest (see "WHAT ENTITLES US TO PROCESS PERSONAL DATA?"). In the case of marketing activities, we will stop processing your personal data without further ado; in other cases, we will do so unless we have compelling legitimate grounds for continuing such processing.
You can object to processing for the following purposes:
a) Protection of our legal interests and keeping internal records;
b) Promotion of our brand and marketing communications; and
c) Operation of the website.
G.8. Right to lodge a complaint
Exercising your rights in the above manner does not affect your right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. You can exercise this right in particular if you believe that we process your personal data unlawfully or in violation of generally binding legal regulations.
