You have the right to ask the responsible person to delete personal data concerning you immediately and we are obliged to delete personal data immediately if one of the following reasons applies:
a. The personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.

When exercising the right to transfer data in accordance with Section 1, you have the right to obtain that personal data be transferred directly from one responsible person to another, as far as technically feasible. Exercising the right to data transferability shall not affect the right to deletion ("right to be forgotten").

You can exercise your right of objection at any time by contacting the person responsible for the matter in question.
(9) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing - including profiling - which has legal effect on you or which significantly affects you in a similar way. This shall not apply if the decision:
a. is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the responsible person,
