The party concerned is entitled to demand correction by JKU of incorrect personal data relating to it without delay. Taking the purposes of processing into account, the party concerned is entitled to demand completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplemental statement.

The right to deletion is in particular not applicable if the processing is required to meet a legal obligation of JKU or to perform a task lying in the public interest or in the exercise of governmental authority which was transferred to JKU, or required for assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
The party concerned is entitled to demand restriction of processing by JKU if any of the following prerequisites obtains: a) The correctness of the personal data is contested by the party concerned, and more specifically, for a period of time that makes it possible for JKU to review the correctness of the personal data; b) The processing is illegal and the party concerned rejects deletion of the personal data and instead demands restriction on the use of the personal data; c) JKU no longer needs the personal data for purposes of processing, but the party concerned does need it for assertion, exercise and defence of legal claims; d) The party concerned has raised objection to processing until it is established whether JKU’s justified reasons outweigh those of the party concerned. If processing was restricted, then such personal data may only be processed with the consent of the party concerned or for
assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of rights of another individual or legal entity or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State (apart from storage).

As of the date of the objection, JKU will no longer process the personal data, unless a) JKU can show pressing and justifiable reasons for processing; b) The interests, rights and freedoms of the party concerned take precedence; or c) Processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. If personal data are processed to engage in direct advertising, then the party concerned has at all times the right to raise objection to processing of personal data relating to it for the purposes of such advertising. In the event of such an objection, the personal data will no longer be processed for such purposes.
