Under the basic data protection regulation, you have various rights:
- Right to information
- Right of rectification
- Right of cancellation
- Right to limit processing
- Right of objection
- Right of appeal
Details can be found in particular in Articles 15 to 18 and 21 of the DSGVO.
General information on these rights:
In some cases we cannot or may not be able to meet your request (§§ 32c to 32f of the German Fiscal Code). In this case, we will always inform you of the reason for the refusal, if this is legally permissible.
However, we will always reply within one month of receiving your request. If we need more than one month for a final clarification, you will receive an intermediate message.

Almost all citizens and companies will sooner or later come into contact with the tax offices because, for example, they have to file tax returns, pay taxes or claim refunds. Personal data must be processed for this purpose. In the taxation procedure, data is personal if it can be attributed to a natural person, a corporate body (e.g. association, corporation), an association of persons or a mass of assets.
