Explanations regarding consent and restriction of processing activities

If your personal data have been processed (i.e. in particular collected) based on your explicit consent, you may revoke such consent at any time in accordance with Art. 7 (3) GDPR. However, this shall not affect the lawfulness of the processing of your data until your revocation.

Subject to the conditions of Art. 18 GDPR, you may demand restriction of the processing of your data. This may be the case, e.g., if the authority no longer requires the data, but you need them to assert, exercise, or defend any legal claims and erasure the data would harm your legitimate interests.

You may object to processing activities if

  • you dispute accuracy of the data,
  • processing activities are unlawful,
  • the purpose of the processing activities has been met, but the data are necessary for assertion of legal claims by the data subject, or

Personal data are erased by the competent authority when they are no longer needed for implementation and after legal retention periods, e.g. to allow decisions on retroactive changes or in case of illegality, have expired. There is no right to erasure in accordance with Art. 17 GDPR before the deadlines named.

When does your right to be “forgotten” not apply?

This is the case if

  • the right to freedom of expression or freedom of information is overriding, i.e. due to the greater interest of third parties in being informed,
  • storage of the data serves compliance with a legal obligation,
  • public interest in the field of public health is overriding,
