    The data subject should have the following Rights:

    • Right to get informed about the collected personal data and its processing. (Art. 15 GDPR i. c. w. § 12 LDSG RLP).
    • Right to rectification of inaccurate or incomplete data concerning him or her (Art. 16 GDPR).
    • Right to have his or her personal data erased after the requirements of Art. 17 GDPR are met. However, the further retention of the personal data should be lawful, where it is necessary, for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of public authority (Art. 17 para. 3 (b) GDPR).
    • Right to restriction of processing, specially where the accuracy of data is disputed, for the duration of the verification of accuracy, if the data are processed unlawfully but the data subject wishes to restrict the processing instead of erasure, if the data subject requires the data for the establishment or exercise of legal claims or for the defence against such and the data therefore cannot be erased, or if the objection is pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR, if it has not yet been determined whether the legitimate interests of RPTU override those of the data subject (Art. 18 GDPR).
    • Right to object, on reasons relating to his or her particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her. The controller shall no longer process the personal data unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (Art. 21 GDPR).

    10 Withdrawal of consent

    The data subject shall have the right to withdraw his or her consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
