Moreover, our employees and Processors are bound by contract to respect the provisions of this Privacy Policy when Processing Personal Data.

How long we keep your Personal Data

After a period of 24 months without a contractual relationship between your organization and us regarding any of our products or services, we will remove all Personal Data, that we may have collected about you during this period, from our systems.

We may have statutory obligations to keep your Personal Data for an extended period of time (e.g. invoices for financial auditing purposes (usually 6 years)).

Log data of visits on our web servers are kept for 7 days (see the section First things first - your visit on our website!).
