Purpose of data processing by the controller and third parties

That is why we only store your personal data if we are required to do so to meet the purposes outlined here, or to meet the various retention periods stipulated by law. If the respective purpose no longer applies or if this period expires, the corresponding data shall be erased or processing restricted as a matter of routine, and in accordance with legal provisions.
