10. The right to inspect, amend and have data removed

If the data subject is able to present substantial reasons, they are entitled to know what data, or if no data, is stored.

The data subject is entitled to request that the controller without reasonable delay amend unspecific and inaccurate personal data on the data subject. The controller shall on their own initiative or on the request of the data subject amend, delete or complete the personal data in the system, should they be inaccurate, no longer needed, inadequate or obsolete in regard to the purpose of processing and collection of data.

If the data subject wishes to inspect, amend or have their data removed in the manner described above, they shall send a written request signed in person to the contact person of the customer data file. The identity of the data subject is verified when the request is delivered.

Once the controller has received the request, the controller shall without reasonable delay, and no later than in 30 days, send a reply to the data subject. If there are many requests or they are complicated, the controller can let the data subject know that more time is required to process the request, but by no more than an additional 2 months. The controller must provide a fair reason why the processing time is delayed. The data subject is entitled to inspect their data free of charge once a year. If the access requests are clearly unfounded or unreasonable, and especially if they are frequent, the controller will charge 100 € per request to cover administrative costs. The fee is to be paid before the data is disclosed.

If the controller declines the request of the data subject, the controller shall supply a written statement. This statement shall include the reasons why the request is declined, as well as information on how to appeal to the supervisory authority and make use of other means of legal protection.

12. Does the processing of personal data include automated decision-making such as profiling?

The processing of personal data does not include automated decision-making or profiling.

13. Other matters concerning the processing of personal data

If the access requests of the data subject are clearly unfounded or unreasonable, and especially if they are frequent, the controller may:

  • charge a reasonable fee considering the administrative costs caused by delivering data or messages, or by completing the requested action
  • decline to complete the requested action.

In such cases, the controller shall prove that the request is clearly unfounded or unreasonable.

14. The data subject's right to appeal

The data subject is entitled to appeal to the supervisory authority, should the data subject find that the controller's processing of personal data violates this decree, but
only if this does not restrict other administrative instructions for amendment applications or means of legal protection.
