Your personal data will be deleted by us as soon as there is no reason for further processing or storage. To ensure this, we perform a deletion of all legacy data. Subject to a statutory retention obligation, deletion takes place in the event that the purpose of the data processing no longer exists, no contractual basis or no legitimate interest exists.

Right to information: You can inform us any time about the data processed by us. In this case, we will inform you in writing which data we have stored about you, for what purposes we use them, to which categories of recipients we pass them on and how long we intend to save them. We will try to respond to your request for information immediately but will do so at the latest within one month.

Right to delete: You have the right to request the deletion of your data processed by us at any time. We will comply with this request if your data is no longer necessary for the purpose of the survey, if you revoke any existing consent, in the case of unlawful data processing or if the deletion is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation.

Right to correction: If we mistakenly process incorrect or incomplete data about you, we will of course correct it. All that is needed is an informal application addressed to us.

Right to restriction of processing: If the deletion of your data is not possible or you do not want it, but you disagree with a use beyond the storage of the data, we have the obligation, at your request, of further processing your personal data.

We will comply with your request without delay.
