If the rights and freedoms of a person depicted are violated for reasons particularly worthy of consideration, we will take appropriate measures to refrain from further processing. That which has already been issued in the print media cannot be deleted. Deletion on our websites or our social media channels will be carried out within the scope of technical possibilities.
