Your right to erasure shall not apply to the extent that processing is necessary pursuant to the following grounds (exceptions):

- Right to object
You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of your personal data which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions. After an objection, we will no longer process the personal data unless we demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
Where we process your personal data for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to processing your personal data for such marketing. This also applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.
Where you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process your personal data for such purposes.
In the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC (Directive on privacy and electronic communications), you may exercise your right to object by automated means using technical specifications.
- Right to withdraw consent
Under Article 7(3) GDPR you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
