You also have the right to request the correction or deletion of personal data concerning you and to restrict its use or to object to its use altogether. You may request information about the origin of personal data and request that the personal data concerning you be provided in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You are then free to transfer this data to another person responsible. You can even request that I transfer your personal data directly to another person responsible – insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that the rights and freedoms of other persons are not affected by this.

And of course you can complain to the relevant supervisory authority.
