- c) Exceptions
The right to erasure does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format.

- the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a GDPR or Art. 9 (2) a GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 (1) b GDPR and
- the processing is carried out with the help of automated procedures.
In exercising this right, you also have the right to have the personal data concerning you transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.
