However, please bear in mind that there may be other reasons which may prevent immediate deletion of your data (e.g. statutory mandatory storage; pending legal proceedings; assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims).
[8.4] Right to place constraints on processing: under any of the following circumstances you are entitled to demand that constraints be placed on processing of your data:
- you dispute the accuracy of the data, for a period of time that allows us to check whether the data are accurate;
- processing of your data is unlawful, but you do not want your data to be deleted and instead would prefer that constraints be placed on how the data are used;

- you have submitted an objection to processing of the data.
[8.5] Right to transferability of data: you are entitled to demand that the data supplied by you be provided to you by us in a standard, structured, machine-readable format, insofar as we are processing the data based on your consent or in order to fulfil an agreement between us and the processing is being carried out via automated methods.
[8.6] Right to submit an objection: if we process your data in order to perform tasks which are in the public interest or in order to exercise official authority, or if, when processing the data, we invoke the need to uphold our legitimate interests, you may submit an objection to the processing of the data, insofar as you have predominant justified interests in your data. You may object at any time to the sending of advertising materials without having to give reasons.
[8.7] Right to submit a complaint: if you believe that when processing your data we are in breach of Austrian or European data protection law and thereby infringing your rights, please get in touch so that we can clarify the matter. Naturally you are also entitled to submit a complaint to the Austrian Data Protection Authority or a European supervisory authority.
[8.8] Right to revoke: at any time you may revoke any consent which you have given, independently of all other statements of consent. If you revoke your consent, from that date on we will cease processing your data for the purposes indicated in the statement of consent, and hence we will no longer be able to benefit from the rights, advantages etc.
