  • (1) to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information;

(2) the processing is unlawful and you object to the erasure of the personal data and instead demand that the use of the personal data be restricted;

(3) the municipality of Schwielowsee, as the data controller, no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you need the personal data for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims;

(4) you have lodged an objection to the processing pursuant to Section 21 (1) of the GDPR, but it is not yet clear whether the justified reasons of the municipality of Schwielowsee as the controller outweigh your reasons. If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data – apart from being stored – may only be processed with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

If the processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the municipality of Schwielowsee as the controller before the restriction is lifted.

5. Right to information

If you have asserted the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing vis-à-vis the municipality of Schwielowsee as the controller, the municipality of Schwielowsee is obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of this rectification, erasure or restriction of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. You have the right to be informed about these recipients by the municipality of Schwielowsee as controller.

6. Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you and provided to the municipality of Schwielowsee as the controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You also have the right to have these data communicated to another person in charge without hindrance by the municipality of Schwielowsee as the controller to whom the personal data have been made available, provided that

(1) the processing is based on a consent pursuant to Section 6 (1) a of the GDPR or Section 9 (2) a of the GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Section 6 (1) b of the GDPR and

(2) the processing is carried out by means of automated procedures.

In exercising this right to data portability, you also have the right to obtain that the personal data concerning you be transferred directly from the municipality of Schwielowsee as the controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be impaired by this.

The right to data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data that is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the municipality of Schwielowsee as the controller.

7. Right to object

You also have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you that is carried out pursuant to Section 6 (1) e or f of the GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The municipality of Schwielowsee, as the controller, will no longer process the personal data concerning you unless it can demonstrate compelling reasons for processing that are worthy of protection and that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or unless the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If the personal data concerning you are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing, including profiling, insofar as it relates to such direct marketing.

If you object to processing for the purposes of direct marketing, your personal data will no longer be processed for those purposes.

In the context of the use of information society services, you have the right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications, notwithstanding the provisions of Directive 2002/58/EC.

8. Right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law

You also have the right to revoke your consent to the processing of personal data at any time. In the event of such revocation, the lawfulness of the data processing carried out up to the time of revocation will not be affected.

9. Automated decision in individual cases including profiling

You also have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, that produces legal effects in relation to you or significantly affects you in a similar way.

However, this does not apply where the decision

(1) is necessary for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract between you and the municipality of Schwielowsee as the controller,

(2) is permitted by European Union or national legislation to which the municipality of Schwielowsee is subject as a controller and such legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests; or

(3) with your express consent.

However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data in accordance with Section 9 (1) of the GDPR, unless Section 9 (2) a or g of the GDPR applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.

In the cases referred to in (1) and (3) above, the municipality of Schwielowsee, as the controller, shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, which shall include at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person from the controller, to present its own point of view and to contest the decision.

10. Right of appeal to a data protection authority

You have the right to complain to a data protection authority, in particular in the Member State in which you are resident or your place of work is situated or which is the place of the suspected infringement, if you take the view that the processing of personal data concerning you is in breach of the GDPR. The latter applies irrespective of the existence of any other administrative or judicial remedy.

If you lodge a complaint with a data protection authority, the latter will inform the complainant of the status and the results of the complaint, including the possibility of a legal remedy under Section 78 of the GDPR.


X. Data security

The municipality of Schwielowsee takes technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data against loss, manipulation or unauthorised access by third parties. The technical procedures used for this purpose are further developed in line with technological progress and continuously adapted to the state of the art.

We would like to point out, however, that data transmission over the internet, such as communication by e-mail, may be subject to security gaps.


XI. Transfer of data to third parties, no data transfer to non-EU countries

The personal data collected, stored and used by the municipality of Schwielowsee will not be passed on to third parties.

If and to the extent that we commission third parties within the framework of the fulfilment of contracts, they will only receive personal data to the extent that the transmission is necessary for the corresponding service.

If personal data are processed by third parties on behalf of the municipality of Schwielowsee (contract processing), we oblige the third parties acting as contract processors to process the personal data only in accordance with the data protection regulations and to ensure the protection of the rights of the person concerned.

Personal data will only be transferred to third parties outside the EU in the cases specified in this declaration and will not be transferred in any other cases.
