Rights of data subjects
As a data subject, you are entitled to various rights under the GDPR. These are in detail:
- Right of access: You have the right to demand access from us to your information about the data stored about you and its origin. This also includes the possibility to receive a copy of your data. Upon your request, the information can also be provided electronically.
- Right of rectification, deletion and limitation of processing: You have the right to request the rectification, deletion or limitation of processing of your personal data.

- Right to object: If we process your data on the basis of a balancing of interests in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit f GDPR, you have the right to object to this data processing. We will then refrain from processing your data from the time of your objection, unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing worthy of protection that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
- Revocation of consents: Consents granted by you, e.g. for the sending of newsletters, can be revoked at any time.
You have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of your data violates applicable law.

rothorn uses appropriate technical and organizational security measures in order to protect the data you have made available from manipulation, loss, destruction or unauthorized access. We are continually revising our security measures in line with technological developments.
We will only pass on your personal data to external third parties if this is necessary to process or handle your request, if another legal basis exists, or if we have your consent. External recipients may in particular be service providers that we use to provide services, for example in the areas of technical infrastructure and maintenance of our website. Such processors are carefully selected and regularly checked by us. They may use the data exclusively for the purposes specified by us and in accordance with our instructions.
In certain cases, we may transfer your personal data to rothorn legal AG in Switzerland. For Switzerland, there is an adequacy decision of the European Commission regarding data protection.
If data is transferred to other entities whose registered office or place of business is not located in a member state of the European Union or in a country that is not a party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, we will ensure prior to the transfer that, except in exceptional cases permitted by law, the recipient either has an adequate level of data protection or that we have your consent to the data transfer.
We reserve the right to amend this data protection information from time to time. The modified version will be published at this same place. When you visit our website, the then-current data protection information applies.
