• for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 (1) GDPR

The same applies to corresponding profiling. The objection must be justified. It is sufficient if you state as a reason that you no longer wish the data to be processed. After the objection, the data will no longer be processed.

The controller may continue to process the data despite your objection if

• there are compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms; or
• the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or
• in the case of processing under Article 89(1) of the GDPR: processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.

In connection with the use of information society services, you may also exercise your right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.

8. Right of withdrawal, Art. 7 (3) GDPR

9. Automated decision in individual cases including profiling, Art. 22 GDPR

You have the right to withdraw from a decision based on automated processing if the decision produces legal effects vis-à-vis you or similarly significantly affects you. The same applies to profiling.

This right is not subject to limitations if the decision is based on special categories of personal data as defined in Article 9(1) of the GDPR, e.g. data concerning political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, genetic or biometric data and data concerning health or sex life or sexual orientation.

However, if you have consented to automated processing and neither Union law nor the law of a Member State prohibits such consent (Article 9(2)(a) GDPR) or if the processing is necessary for a substantial public interest (Article 9(2)(g) GDPR), your right may be excluded as described below, even if special categories of personal data are processed.

This right shall not exist if the decision based on automated processing is

• is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the controller, or
• is permissible based on legal provisions of the Union and/or one of the Member States and
• your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests are adequately protected by these legal provisions or
• is carried out with your express consent

In the above first and last case of an exclusion of your right described here, the controller will take reasonable steps to safeguard your other rights, freedoms and legitimate interests. This includes, in particular, the right to intervene in the decision by the controller, to express your point of view and to contest the decision.

10. Right to complain to a supervisory authority, Art. 77 GDPR

You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you violates the GDPR. You will be informed by the supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged about the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possible remedies (esp. Art. 78 GDPR).
