You have the right to receive the personal data that you have provided to the data controller in a structured,

legality of the processing carried out on the basis of your consent is not affected until you withdraw
your consent.

Automated decisions in individual cases, including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to any decision based solely on automated processing, including
profiling, that has any legal effect on you or that significantly affects you in a similar manner.
This does not apply if the decision:
  1. is necessary for the conclusion or the performance of a contract between you and the data controller,

  2. is authorized by legislation of the Union or of the Member States to which the data controller is
    subject and if this legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms
    and your legitimate interests; or

  3. has been made with your express consent.

unless point (a) or (g) of Article 9(2) GDPR apply and the appropriate measures have been taken to protect your
rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.

With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the data controller shall take appropriate measures to
protect your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain
the intervention of a person on the part of a person who represents the data controller, to whom you can express
your point of view and challenge the decision.

outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 GDPR.
