In the event of data processing based on the Data Controller’s legitimate interest, data are processed for the period making possible to exercise that interest or until an effective objection is made against the data processing. If the processing takes place basing on a consent, data are being processed until the consent is withdrawn. If the need to enter into and to perform a contract is the basis of processing, data will be processed until the contract is terminated.

 

The data processing period may be extended, if the processing is necessary in order to find, pursue or defend against claims, if any, and after that period, only in the event and to the extent legal regulations require doing so. Data are irretrievably erased or rendered anonymous after the data processing period elapses.
