As a data subject, without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state of your place of residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes the requirements of the GDPR.

6. right to restriction of processing

You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:

  • If the processing of your personal data has happened / is happening unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
