Right to object to processing

Article 21 of the GDPR grants a data subject the right to object to the processing of their personal data. This allows data subjects to demand the data controller to stop processing their personal data. The objection can be given in writing or verbally and has to be explained.

The data controller does not have to cease with the processing if there are legitimate grounds for the processing which overrides the interest and rights of an individual or the processing is necessary because of the fulfillment of the legal rights.
