-    Art. 16 GDPR – Right to rectification: You have the right to obtain from us without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning you.

-    Art. 21 GDPR – Right to object: You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you, when it is necessary on account of a legitimate interest on our part or for a task carried out in the public interest, or is carried out in the exercise of official authority.

If you object, we will no longer process your personal data, unless we can prove compelling legitimate grounds for the processing, which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.
