The duration of processing for security purposes is variable and ends when the security measures are no longer necessary. Furthermore, our data processing company anonymises the data collected immediately after its collection and makes the anonymous data available to us in the form of statistics for evaluation.

The parent corporation of Google Ireland, Google LLC, has its headquarters in California, USA. A transfer of data to the USA and access by the US authorities to the data stored with Google cannot be ruled out. From the point of view of data security law, the USA counts as a third country. You do not have the same rights there as within the EU/EEA. You may have no legal redress against access by authorities.
Duration of storage
