To exercise your rights, please contact the office responsible at Vogt Plastic GmbH. Sending us an informal notification by email is sufficient for this purpose.

You are entitled to request information about your personal data that is processed by us. In this regard, you can, for example, request information about the purposes of the data processing; categories of personal data; categories of recipients to whom your personal data has been or will be disclosed; storage period; existence of a right to rectification, erasure, restriction on data processing or objection; existence of a right of complaint to the supervisory authority; origin of your data if it has not been collected by us; existence of automated decision-making, including profiling.

You are entitled to the immediate erasure (“the right to be forgotten”) of your personal data if, for example, the purpose of the data processing is no longer necessary, if you withdraw your consent or if there is no legal basis for processing your personal data.

d) Right to restriction of processing your data

You are entitled to a restriction on the processing of your personal data, for example if the accuracy of the data is contested, how it is processed is unlawful and you decline to have it erased and instead request a restriction on how it is used and we no longer require this for the purpose of processing your data but you need it for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or an objection to the processing has been lodged.

You are entitled to have personal data, which you have provided to us, handed over in a structured, standard and machine-readable format and transferred to another data controller if its processing is automated.

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content such as, for example, orders or requests, which you send to us as the site operator. You can identify an encrypted connection in that the browser address bar changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock icon in your browser bar.

Sending us an informal notification by email is sufficient to do so.

The data entered by you in the contact form remains with us until you request us to delete it, withdraw your consent to store it or there is no purpose for storing the data (e.g. after the handling of your request has been completed). Compelling statutory provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected in this.
