You have the basic right to access, rectification, erasure, restriction, data portability, withdrawal of consent and objection. Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, your place of work or in the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of your personal data infringes the GDPR.
The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the progress and the outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy according to Art. 78 GDPR.

You have the opportunity to object to the collection, processing and use of your data and/or to withdraw consent which you previously gave to us for the collection, processing and forwarding of your personal data with effect for the future at any time. Should you exercise your right to object, we will cease to process the data in question. To do so, please send us an email at or write to UNTHA shredding technology GmbH, Kellau 141, 5431 Kuchl. We do, however, reserve the right to continue processing where we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for this processing which override your interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms, or where the processing serves to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.

The duration of the storage of personal data is measured based on the corresponding statutory retention period (e.g. retention periods under commercial and tax law). After expiry of the period, the corresponding data will be routinely erased, unless it is still required for the fulfilment or initiation of a contract and/or no legitimate interest in the continued storage can be proven to still exist on our part.
