6. Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. Furthermore, you have the right to transmit this data to another person responsible without any hindrance from us, provided that

(1) processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR and
(2) processing is carried out by automated means.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to request that the personal data relating to you be transferred directly by us to another person responsible, insofar as this is technically feasible. The rights and freedoms of other persons shall not be adversely affected by this.

The right to data portability shall not apply to processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in us.

9. Automated individual 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. This shall not apply if the decision

(1) is necessary for entering into or performing a contract between you and us,
(2) is authorized by Union or Member State law to which we are subject and which lays down
        suitable measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests, or
(3) is based on your explicit consent.

However, these decisions shall not be based on special categories of personal data referred to in Article 9 para 1 GDPR, unless Article 9 para. 2 lit. a or g applies and suitable measures are in place to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.

In the cases referred to in (1) and (3), we shall implement suitable measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests, including at least the right of Schaeffer AG to obtain human intervention to express its own point of view and to contest the decision.

10. Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, 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 infringes the GDPR.

The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant on the progress and the outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Article 78 GDPR.
