You have the right to be informed about these recipients from the controller.
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to the controller, in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to have the personal data concerning you transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible. This must not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
The right to data portability does not apply to processing necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
