  • If you dispute the accuracy of your data stored with us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the review, you have the right to request that the processing of your data be restricted.
  • If the processing of your data was/is carried out unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
  • If we no longer need your data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request that we limit the processing of your data instead of deleting it.
  • If you have lodged an objection under Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR, a balance must be struck between your interests and ours. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to request that the processing of your data be restricted.
