We process your personal data in accordance with the provisions set out in the GDPR and the relevant applicable data protection laws and regulations. The legal bases for processing your personal data are:

We process and store your personal data for as long as it is required to fulfil our contractual and regulatory obligations. If your personal data is no longer required for the performance of contractual or regulatory obligations, it will be erased on a regular basis unless further processing is necessary, for instance, for preserving particular evidence under the applicable data protection laws and regulations or in the context of legal statutes of limitation.
