Your data will not be passed to any other third parties for their own purposes without your consent.
3. Rights of the data subject
3.1. Right to information
You have the right to obtain information from us on all your data processed by VERBUND. You have the right to obtain information as to whether your personal data will be transferred to a third state or to an international organisation. In this regard, you may request information on whether we have provided appropriate safeguards pursuant to Article 46 GDPR in connection with the transfer of your data.
3.2. Right to rectification and right to restriction of processing
You have the right to obtain the rectification of inaccurate data and the right to have incomplete data completed. Under certain circumstances, for example if the accuracy of data is contested, you have the right to obtain the restriction of processing; in this event, data may only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest.
3.3. Right to data portability
You have the right to request that VERBUND transmit to you or to a third party nominated by you, where technically feasible, a copy of your data in a structured, commonly used and machine readable format. Moreover, you have the right to transmit this data to another data controller without any obstruction from the data controller to whom the personal data has been given, if
(1) the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6(1) (a) GDPR or Art. 9(2) (a) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6(1) (b) GDPR, and
(2) the processing is carried out by automated means.
In exercising this right to data portability, you also have the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible. This right shall not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
3.4. Right to erasure
You have the right to obtain erasure of data under certain circumstances, such as if the data have been unlawfully processed.
The so-called "right to be forgotten" does not apply because VERUND will never disclose your personal data.
If you have exercised the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing vis-à-vis VERBUND, we are obliged to communicate any rectification or erasure of data or restriction of processing to each recipient to whom the personal data have been disclosed, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort.
3.5. Right to object
You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of your personal data which is based on point (e) or (f) of Art. 6(1) GDPR.
In this case, VERBUND will no longer process your personal data, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
3.6. Right to withdraw consent
You have the right to withdraw at any time your declaration of consent under data protection law. The revocation of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.
3.7. Supervisory authority
Notwithstanding any other remedies, if you feel that your personal data were unlawfully processed, you may lodge a complaint with the national supervisory authority in your place of residence. In Austria, this supervisory authority is the Data Protection Authority.
