There is no right to information if the provision of the requested information violates the confidentiality obligation pursuant to 83 StBerG or the information must be kept secret for other reasons, in particular because of an overriding legitimate interest of a third party. Deviating from this, there may be an obligation to provide information if your interests outweigh the interests of confidentiality, especially taking into account impending damage. The right to information is also excluded if the data is only stored because it cannot be deleted due to statutory or statutory retention periods or only for data backup or data protection control purposes, provided that providing information would require a disproportionate effort and processing for other purposes is excluded by suitable technical and organizational measures. If the right to information is not excluded in your case and your personal data is processed by us, you can request information from us about the following information:
