  • If we no longer need your personal data but you need them for the exercise, defence or establishment of legal claims, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted instead of erasure.
  • If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR, it will be necessary to balance your interests against ours. Pending the verification of whose rights prevail, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.
