This letter should also contain an overview of the rights of the data subject as well as the indication that further information (especially of a technical nature) can be requested at any time.
Secondary information: If the data subject wants further information, he or she can request secondary information. In this case, data stored in other systems (e.g. data warehouse) relating to the data subject will be identified and processed.
