In this context you can demand to be informed of the suitable guarantees pursuant to art. 46 of the GDPR in conjunction with the transfer.
In the case of data processing for the purposes of scientific or historical research or for statistical research purposes:

Your right of restriction can be limited insofar as it presumably renders the realisation of the research or statistical purposes impossible or seriously impairs said realisation and the limitation is necessary for the fulfillment of the research or statistical purposes.
13.4. Right to deletion
13.4.1. You can demand that the controller delete the personal data relating to your without delay, and the controller is obligated to delete this data without delay, if one of the following reasons applies:

13.4.2. If the controller has made the data relating to you public and he is obligated to delete it pursuant to art. 17 para. 1 of the GRDP, then he takes appropriate measures with due consideration of the available technology and implementation costs, also of a technical nature, to inform the relevant controllers that process the personal data, that you as data subject have demanded from them the deletion of all links to this personal data or to copies or replications of this personal data.
13.4.3. The right to deletion does not exist if the processing is required
a. for exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information;
b. for fulfillment of a legal obligation that requires the processing pursuant to the law of the Union or of the Member States to which the controller is subject, or for performance of a task that is in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority that has been vested in the controller;
c. for reasons of public interest in the area of public health pursuant to art. 9 para. 2 lit. h and i, as well as art. 9 para. 3 of the GRDP;
d. For archiving purposes in the public interest, purposes of scientific or historic research or for statistical purposes pursuant to. art. 89 para. 1 of the GRDP if the right cited in para. 1 presumably does not render impossible or seriously impair the realisation of these objectives of this processing, or
e. for establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
13.5. Right to be informed
If you have asserted the right to correction, deletion or restriction of the processing vis-à-vis the controller, the controller is obligated to inform all recipients to whom the personal data relating to you has been disclosed, to correct the data or delete the data or restrict the processing, unless this proves to be impossible or it involves disproportionate effort.
You have the right to be informed of these recipients by the controller.
13.6. Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data relating to that you have provided to the controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.

b. the processing occurs by automated means.
Moreover, in exercising this right you have the right to have the personal data relating to your transmitted from one controller to another where technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons must not be hereby impaired.
The right to data portability does not apply to processing of personal data that is required for processing necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority that has been vested in the controller.
13.7. Right to object

13.9. Automated decision-making in the specific case, including profiling
You have the right to not be subjected to a decision based exclusively on automated processing – including profiling – that develops its legal effect relative to yourself you or that considerably affects you in a similar manner. This does not apply if the decision

b. is permissible due to statutory regulations of the Union or of the Member States, to which the controller is subject, and these statutory regulations contain appropriate measures for protecting your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests or
c. occurs with your express consent.

This also applies for processing procedures that are necessary for pre-contractual measures.
If a processing of personal data is required for fulfillment of a legal obligation, to which our company is subject, then article 6 para. 1 lit. c of the GDPR serves as the legal basis.In the event that vital interests of the data subject or of a different natural person necessitate processing of personal data, then article 6 para.1 lit. d of the GDPR serves as the legal basis.If the processing is required for protection of a legitimate interest of our company or of a third person and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the first interest cited, then article 6 para. 1 lit. of the GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing. The legitimate interest of our company is the execution of our business activity.
