3. Deleting and restricting personal data

Personal data will be deleted once it is no longer required for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed, and once there are no longer any statutory retention obligations, unless regulated otherwise in this privacy policy for particular cases.
We will delete the personal data processed by us on request, under the terms of Art. 17 GDPR. Personal data required for other purposes and legally permissible purposes will not be deleted. This applies, for instance, to personal data needed for the pursuit of any rights to which we are entitled, or data which has to be retained by us for reasons of commercial or tax law. For example, the documents described in Section 257 Par. 1 no. 2 and 3 HGB and Section 147 Par. 1 no. 2, 3, 5 AO will be retained for six years; the documents described in Section 257 Par. 1 no. 1 and 4 HGB and in Section 147 Par. 1 no. 1, 4, 4a AO for ten years.
The processing of this data is restricted in accordance with Art. 18 GDPR and will not be done for other purposes.

  • Pursuant to Art. 16 GDPR, you can demand the prompt correction of any inaccurate or incomplete personal data held by us.;
  • Pursuant to Art. 17 GDPR, you can demand the deletion of your personal data held by us, unless its processing is necessary in order to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information, to comply with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest, or to assert, exercise or defend legal rights.;
  • Pursuant to Art. 18 GDPR, you can demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data if: you dispute its accuracy; its processing is unlawful, but you object to its deletion and we no longer need it, but you need the data we no longer require to assert, exercise or defend legal right; or you have objected to its processing pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR, but it is not yet clear whether our legitimate interest in processing the data outweighs your interests.;
  • Pursuant to Art. 20 GDPR, you can demand to be given the personal data that you have sent to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format, or to demand that it is sent to another controller.;
  • Pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR, you may object to the processing of your personal data if there are grounds for doing so that arise from your particular situation, or if the objection is directed against direct advertising and the legal basis for the processing of your personal data is legitimate interests as defined in Art. 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR.;
  • Pursuant to Art. 7 (3) GDPR, you can revoke your consent at any time. This means that from that point onwards, we may no longer continue to process the data based on that consent.;
