As far as we transmit data to the USA, we have marked the participation of our service providers in the EU-US Privacy Shield.

The log file is deleted after seven days, unless it is required for clarification or to prove specific legal violations that have become known within the retention period.

4. Duration of data storage

We only store personal data for as long as it is necessary for the purposes for which it is processed or for as long as you have withdrawn your consent.

You also have such a right of objection in the case of data processing for the purpose of direct advertising.

You also have the opportunity to complain to a supervisory authority about your rights as a data subject:

f) Limitations
Data for which we are not able to identify the person concerned, e.g. if this has been anonymized for analysis purposes, are not covered by the above rights.
