Notes on data protection
The Ministry of Federal and European Affairs and Regional Development of Lower Saxony takes the protection of personal data very seriously. We want you to know when we collect which data and how we use it. We have taken technical and organisational measures to ensure that the data protection regulations are observed both by us and by external service providers.
In the following we will inform you about your rights and provide you with further information required by law.
I. Who is responsible and how can I contact the data protection officer?
The person responsible within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the Ministry of Federal and European Affairs and Regional Development of Lower Saxony.
If you have any questions regarding data protection, please contact our data protection officer at firstname.lastname@example.org or at the postal address Windmühlenstr. 1-2, 30159 Hannover.
II. Your rights as a data subject
Everyone concerned has the following rights:
- a right to information (Art. 15 GDPR)
- a right to correct inaccurate data (Art. 16 GDPR)
- a right to deletion or a right to "oblivion" (Art. 17 GDPR)
- a right to restrict the processing of personal data (Art. 18 GDPR)
- a right to data transferability (Art. 20 GDPR).
You can object to the processing of your personal data at any time without giving reasons.
In addition, you also have a general right of objection (cf. Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR). In this case, the objection to data processing must be justified.
If the data processing is based on a consent, this consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future.
To exercise your rights, please contact email@example.com.
We delete your data according to the legal deadlines. In principle, the Lower Saxon file regulations apply here.
You also have the right to file a complaint with a supervisory authority against the data processing we have carried out.
