The retention, or documentation, periods provided therein are up to 10 years after the end of the business relationship or the pre-contractual legal relationship.

Furthermore, other statutory provisions may require a longer retention period such as, for example, the preservation of evidence in connection with statutory limitation rules.

If the data are no longer necessary to perform contractual or statutory duties and rights, they will be deleted, unless their further processing is necessary for purposes which are justified by an overriding legitimate interest within the meaning of the first sentence of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. We will, for example, have an overriding legitimate interest if a deletion, owing to the special type of storage, is impossible, or only possible at disproportionately high expense, and if the processing for other purposes is excluded by appropriate technical and organisational measures.
