In the following, a survey of your rights.

Further, there is a right to the following information:

Where personal data are transferred to a third country or to an international organisation, you have the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Article 46 GDPR (DSGVO) relating to the transfer.
3.2 Right to rectification
You have the right to obtain from us without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning you. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, you have the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.
3.3 Right to erasure (‘right to be forgotten’)
You have the right to obtain from us the erasure of personal data concerning you without undue delay, and we have the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies:
1. The personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.

3.4 Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to obtain from us restriction of processing where one of the following applies:

2. the processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of the personal data and request the restriction of their use instead,
3. we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but are required by you for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, or
4. you have objected to processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) GDPR (DSGVO) pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of our enterprise override those of you.
3.5 Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit those data to another responsible body without hindrance from us, where:

You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning you which is based on Article 6 (1) (e) or (f) GDPR (DSGVO), including profiling based on those provisions. We will no longer process the personal data unless we demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of you or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
Where personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. Where personal data are processed for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89 (1) GDPR (DSGVO), you have the right, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning you, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.
3.7 Automated decision-making, including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you.
3.8 Right to withdrawal of consent to data processing
You have the right to withdraw your consent to processing personal data at any time.
3.9 Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you is unlawful.
4 Data security
Security of your data in the framework of the valid data protection regulations and technical options are of maximum importance for us.
Your personal data are transferred in encrypted form. We use the coding systems SSL (Secure Socket Layer), make aware, however, that data transmission in the internet (e.g., communication by e-mail, even when using a supposedly secure encryption, such as PGP) may comprise security gaps. Gapless protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
For securing your data, we undertake technical and organisational security measures that are constantly updated to meet the latest state of the art.
Further, we do not warrant that our offer is available at any certain time; disturbances, interruptions, or failures cannot be excluded. The servers used by us are regularly and carefully secured.
5 Automated decision-making
An automated decision-making based on the collected personal data does not take place.
6 Transfer of data to third parties, no data transfer to countries outside the EU
In principle, we use your personal data only inside our enterprise.
If and as far as we involve third parties for the purpose of fulfilment of contracts (such as foreign attorneys or authorities), these third parties will obtain personal data only to the extent in which the transfer is legally required for the corresponding purpose or for fulfilment. This relates in particular to naming persons submitting applications of industrial right (with address) or enterprises (with residence) and in the case of patent applications inventors (with address).
In case that we subcontract certain parts of data processing ("order processing"), we oblige the subcontractors by agreement to use personal data only in agreement with the requirements of the data protection regulations and to warrant the protection of the rights of data subjects.
Data transfer to places or persons outside the EU does not take place nor is it intended, with the exception of applications of industrial rights outside the EU.
