Right to Rectification (correction)

When should personal data be rectified?

You are entitled to have personal data rectified if it is inaccurate or incomplete.

If we have disclosed the personal data in question to others, we must contact each recipient and inform them of the rectification - unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort. If asked to, we must also inform you about these recipients.

How long do we have to comply with a request for rectification?

We must respond within one month.

This can be extended by two months where the request for rectification is complex. If we decide not to take action in response to a request for rectification, we will explain to you the reasons why and explain your right to complain to the supervisory authority.
