Reference to individual rights of the affected data subject:

The data subject has the right to obtain confirmation from the controller as to whether or not personal data concerning him or her are being processed. And, if this is the case, the data subject has the right to obtain information and access to the personal data and all matters listed in art. 15 GDPR. The data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject shall have the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement (art. 16 GDPR).

The data subject has the right to request from the controller to delete personal data without undue delay, in case one or all reasons listed in art. 17 GDPR are applicable, for example if data is no longer needed to fulfill the related purpose (right of erasure). The data subject has the right to request from the controller to restrict processing of personal data in case one or all preconditions listed in art. 18 GDPR are applicable, for example during the verification process of the controller after the data subject objected to the processing of his or her personal data. The data subject shall have the right to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her. The controller then shall no longer process the personal data unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims (art. 21 GDPR).

Rights of the data subject acc. to art. 13 par. (2) lit. c) GDPR

In case the data subject gave us permission to process his or her personal data for particular purposes (for example the processing of personal pictures), this type of processing is legitimate according to the given permission.
