Soziale Networks

We also use social networking sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Xing to provide you with additional contact and information opportunities. We would like to point out that we have no influence on the terms of use of social networks and the services they offer, and have only limited influence on their data processing. Please therefore carefully check which data you provide us with via the social networks. We cannot accept any liability for the behaviour of social network operators and other users or third parties who may cooperate with social network operators or also use their services.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by social networks as well as your related rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the data protection information of the respective networks.

Storage Period

In principle, we only store personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil contractual or legal obligations for which we have collected the data. We will then delete the data immediately, unless we need the data until the end of the statutory limitation period for evidence purposes for civil law claims or because of legal storage obligations.

For evidence purposes, we must retain contractual data for a further three years from the end of the year in which the business relationship with you ends. Any claims become statute-barred according to the statutory period of limitation at the earliest at this point in time.

Even after this date, we will still have to store some of your data for accounting reasons. We are obliged to do this because of legal documentation obligations which may arise from the German Commercial Code, the German Tax Code, the German Banking Act, the Money Laundering Act and the Securities Trading Act. The time limits for the storage of documents specified there are between two and ten years.
