2. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

The data processed by us is deleted or limited in processing in accordance with Articles 17 and 18 of GDPR. Unless explicitly stated in this privacy policy, the data stored by us is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the original purpose and the deletion does not conflict with any statutory storage requirements. Unless the data is deleted because it is required for other and legitimate purposes, its processing will be restricted. The data is therefore blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be kept for commercial or tax reasons.

As per legal regulations in Germany, storage takes place for 6 years in accordance with § 257 para. 1 HGB [“German Commercial Code”] (trading books, inventories, opening balance sheets, annual accounts, trade letters, accounting documents, etc.) as well as for 10 years in accordance with § 147 para. 1 AO (books, records, management reports, accounting documents, trade and business letters, documents relevant for taxation, etc.).
