Rights of data subjects

According to the General Data Protection Regulation, data subjects have the following rights:

Right to information

Every data subject affected by the data processing has the right - after proving his identity - to request information from ASFINAG regarding whether his personal data are processed. If this is the case, the data subject has a right to further information regarding the purposes as well as the legal basis of the processing, the categories of data concerning him, the data sources, the recipients of his data, the (non-)existence of automated decision-making including profiling, potential information on his rights and duties as well as a copy of the personal data.

Right to rectification and deletion

If the personal data are incorrect or incomplete, the data subject affected may — where necessary by means of a supplementary declaration — request the rectification, completion or deletion of the data concerning him within the scope of the processing purposes. ASFINAG is obliged to delete personal data in particular insofar as the deletion is prescribed by law or if any existing consent to the processing has been revoked, if there is no longer a legal basis for the processing or if personal data are no longer required for the processes for which they were collected.

However, the right to deletion does not exist if the processing occurs for the fulfilment of a legal obligation of ASFINAG or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority or if it is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Right to restrict processing

Every data subject has the right to have the processing of his personal data restricted. To do so, one of the following requirements must be fulfilled:

  • The correctness of the personal data is disputed by the data subject, namely for a duration that enables ASFINAG to investigate the correctness of the personal data,
  • The processing is unlawful and the data subject rejects the deletion of the personal data and instead requests the restriction of the use of the personal data;
  • ASFINAG no longer requires the personal data for the purposes of the processing, and at the same time, however, the data subject requires them for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims;
  • If the data subject has filed an objection to the processing, so long as it is not yet determined whether ASFINAG’s legitimate grounds outweigh those of the data subject.

However, restricted data may still be used for the protection of the rights of another person, for substantial public interest or for the assertion, exercise or defence of the legal claims of ASFINAG.

Right to data portability

The data subject has the right to receive the personal data concerning him that he has provided to ASFINAG in a structured, common and machine-readable format i.e. – insofar as technically possible – to have these data transmitted to another controller. However, this right only exists if the processing is based on the legal basis of a contract or on the consent of the data subject.

Right to objection

The data subject has the right to file an objection to the processing of personal data concerning him at any time due to reasons arising from his particular situation. This right only exists if the processing

  • is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or
  • is carried out in the exercise of official authority vested in ASFINAG, or
  • is necessary for the safeguarding of the legitimate interests of ASFINAG or of a third party.

ASFINAG will then no longer process the personal data unless it can demonstrably prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or unless the processing would facilitate efforts to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

Right to object to direct mail

If personal data is processed in order to operate direct advertising, the person concerned has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data relating to them for the purpose of such advertising. If the data subject objects to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes.

Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

Every data subject has the right to lodge a complaint with the Data Protection Authority, Barichgasse 40-42, 1030 Vienna,
