The legal basis for the associated data processing is Art. 6 par. 1 b) DSGVO, (i.e. the processing of your data is for the fulfilment of the agreement on the services of IMS) and after weighing the interests pursuant to Art. 6 par. 1 f) of the German data protection laws (EU General Data Protection Regulation and Bundesdatenschutzgesetz).  We will delete all the aforementioned data at the latest after expiry of the statutory warranty period, unless we are obliged or entitled by applicable law to further storage of the data.
