YOUR RIGHTS DURING THE PROCESSING OF PD
We process your personal data in a completely transparent manner. At any time during the processing of your personal data, you can use the following data subject rights guaranteed by the GDPR.
On the basis of the right of access to information, you have the right to obtain from YONCARE, as the controller, confirmation as to whether or not personal data relating to you is being processed, and if it is being processed, then you have the right to obtain access to this personal data and other information provided to you will be provided to YONCARE as administrator in accordance with the law.
Furthermore, you have the right to correction, which consists in the fact that YONCARE, as the controller, has the obligation to correct inaccurate data concerning you, as the data subject, and you also have the right to request the completion of your incomplete personal data.
Based on the right to erasure, you have the right to have YONCARE, as the controller, erase all personal data concerning you as a data subject, if there is a legal reason for doing so. YONCARE would like to point out that it may not comply with the deletion request if there is another legal reason for the processing, e.g. if the processing is necessary for the performance of the contract, is necessary for the fulfillment of legal obligations that apply to YONCARE, or is necessary for the protection of the legitimate interests of YONCARE.
Furthermore, you have the right to limit processing, which you can use, in particular if you consider that the processing of personal data is inaccurate, unlawful, if you require it for the determination, exercise or defense of legal claims or if you object to the processing.
Based on the right to be notified of correction, erasure or restriction of processing, you have the right to be informed about the recipients of information to whom YONCARE will notify the fact that the correction, deletion or restriction of processing of personal data has taken place, but only if this does not prove to be impossible or does not require unreasonable effort.
You have the right to the portability of personal data, which consists in obtaining from YONCARE personal data concerning you in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, and you also have the right to transfer this data to another controller. However, this is only if the processing of personal data is based on consent or the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfillment of the contract and the processing is carried out automatically. If it is technically feasible, you have the right to have YONCARE transfer personal data directly to the administrator designated by you.
According to the right to object, you can object to the processing of your personal data.
Furthermore, you have the right not to be the subject of automated decision-making, including profiling, which has legal effects for you or significantly affects you in a similar way.
