  • In Austria: § 12 (2) 4. together with § 12 (3) 1. or 3. DSG2000

References to the rights of concerned persons

The concerned persons shall have the right to obtain from the controller confirmation as to whether personal data relating to him or her are being processed; if this is the case, he or she shall have the right of access to such personal data and to the information specified in Art. 15 GDPR. The data subject has the right to ask the data controller immediately to rectify any inaccurate personal data concerning him or her and, if necessary, to complete any incomplete personal data (Art. 16 GDPR).

The concerned person has the right to demand that the data controller delete personal data relating to him or her immediately if one of the reasons specified in Art. 17 GDPR applies, e.g. if the data is no longer required for the purposes pursued (right to deletion).

The data subject has the right to require the controller to restrict the processing if one of the conditions listed in Art. 18 GDPR is met, e.g. if the concerned person has objected to the processing for the duration of the controller's investigation.

The concerned person shall have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning him for reasons relating to his particular situation. The controller will then no longer process the personal data unless he can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing outweighing the interests, rights and freedoms of the concerned person, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims (Art. 21 GDPR).

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, any concerned person shall have the right to complain to a supervisory authority if he or she considers that the processing of his or her personal data infringes the GDPR (Art. 77 GDPR). The data subject may exercise this right before a supervisory authority in the Member State in which he or she is staying, in which he or she works or in which the alleged infringement occurred.
