The company will store personal data only for as long as this is necessary to achieve the purpose for which personal data have been collected and processed. Insofar as the company processes the data based on the law, they will be kept for the period prescribed by law. In doing so, some of the information is retained during the cooperation with the company, and some data must be kept permanently.
The personal data processed by the company on the basis of a contractual relationship with an individual shall be kept by the company for the period necessary for the execution of the contract and for a further 6 years after its termination, except in cases where there is a dispute between the individual and the company in relation to the contract. In such a case, the company keeps the data for another 10 years after the final decision, arbitration or judicial settlement has become final, or, if no dispute has been made, 5 years from the date of peaceful settlement of the dispute.
The personal data processed by the company based on personal consent of the individual or on the legitimate interest will be kept by the company until the cancellation of the consent or the request to delete the data. After receiving the cancellation or request for deletion, the data is deleted within 15 days at the latest. An entity may also delete this information before consent is cancelled when the purpose of the processing of personal data has been achieved or if the law so provides.
Exceptionally, the company may refuse the request for deletion for the reasons set out in the General Regulation, such as: exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information, compliance with legal processing obligations, reasons of public interest in the field of public health, the purpose of archiving in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes, implementation or defence of legal claims.
After the expiry of the retention period, the company must erase or anonymise the personal data effectively and permanently so that it can no longer be associated with a individual.
