  2. the processing is unlawful, but you oppose the erasure of the personal data and request the restriction of their use instead;

  3. the institution no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you require them for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims;

The Moravian library is obligated to announce all corrections, erasures or restrictions of the processing carried out in accordance with Article 16, Article 17(1) and Article 18 of GDPR to each recipient to whom the personal data was disclosed, unless this proves impossible or requires disproportionate effort. The Moravian library will inform the data subject (user) about these recipients, if the subject requests.
