We may request further information from you in this regard. We will explain the results of our examination as well as our procedure for fulfilling your request in detail. It is possible that we may not be able to fully meet your wishes in the way you desire. This is not to prevent you from claiming your rights against us or from asking us about them. We will be happy to answer all your questions.

This also includes information about the purposes of the processing, possibly about recipients to whom we have disclosed data from you, the planned storage period and possibly information about the origin of this data, unless we have collected it directly from you.
