6. Duration of storage

We will retain your personal data for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which your personal data is collected and processed, e.g., to provide a service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements. The exact retention periods depend on the type of information and the reason for its collection and processing, as well as the nature of the legal requirement. For example, we retain your personal data when we are required to do so by law.

Once the purpose for which we processed your data has been achieved and we no longer have any other legal permission or obligation to retain your personal data for other pusposes, we will either delete, anonymize, or restrict access to it.

We store your personal data for as long as necessary for the purpose for which your personal data was collected and processed. If there is no longer a need for processing, we delete your personal data. Legal storage obligations remain unaffected.

7. Cookies

A cookie is a small text file that we store on your device when you visit our website.

We only use session cookies that are strictly necessary for the performance of the website (e.g. security purposes) and that allow us to link your actions on our website during a browser session. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.

You can block cookies by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. However, if you use your browser settings to block cookies (in this case the strictly necessary session cookies), you may not be able to access all or parts of our website.

Please be aware that strictly necessary cookies (like our session cookies) do not require your consent.

Using session cookies as outlined above are based on our legitimate business interests to provide you with the requested service on our website (Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR).

8. International data transfer

In some cases where your personal data is transferred to another group company or third party, it will be processed in countries other than your country of residence. These countries may have different data protection laws than your country and in some cases may not have the same level of protection as your country.

Our companies, third-party service providers and partners operate globally. This means that when we collect your personal information, we will process it in each of these countries.

In cases where we transfer your personal data to countries and territories outside the European Economic Area that have been officially recognized as providing an adequate level of protection for personal data, we rely on the relevant “adequacy decisions” of the European Commission.

In the event that the transfer is not subject to an adequacy decision, we have put in place appropriate safeguards to ensure that your personal data continues to be protected in accordance with this Privacy Policy and applicable data protection laws. The safeguards include the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses as amended on 4 June 2021 pursuant to Article 46(2) of the GDPR.

We use service providers located in Korea, thus outside the European Economic Area. We secure the transfer of your personal data to Korea by means of EU standard contract clauses. You may request a copy of the clauses at

Likewise, if we have collected and processed your personal data with your consent, you can revoke your consent at any time. The revocation of your consent has no effect on the legality of the processing that we carried out before your revocation, nor does it have an effect on the processing of your personal data if there is another legal basis for its processing besides your consent for other purposes.
