Right of access: You have the right to receive information regarding the processing of your personal data from us.
Right of rectification: You can independently change your personal or incorrect personal data in the User Portal at any time.
Right to delete: You have the right to demand the deletion of your data. Accordingly, you can for example request the deletion of your data if it is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected. You can also request deletion if we process your information based on your consent and you revoke this consent.
Right to restriction of processing: You have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your data. This is the case, if you challenge the correctness of your data for example.

Right to object: If processing is used for a predominant interest or your data is used for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object against the processing of your data. An objection is admissible if processing is either in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority or due to a legitimate interest of the VAGupdate or a third party. In case of objection, we kindly ask you to inform us of the reasons for your objection to data processing. You also have the right to object against data processing for direct marketing purposes. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is linked to direct marketing.
