7.  Data retention

In principle, we do not store your personal data any longer than is strictly necessary for the purposes for which we process your personal data.

There could however be exceptions applicable to the general retention terms.

 

Exceptions:

  • Shorter retention period.

    • Your consent;

    • A (pending) legal procedure; in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.

    • The right to freedom of expression and to information;

    • A task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller; or

    • Public health reasons.
