To determine the appropriate retention period for Data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the Data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or the disclosure of User Data, the purposes of which we process User Data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulator, tax, accounting or other requirements.

The Data shall then be archived with restricted access for an additional period of 5 years following the termination of the contractual relationship with AEMD under the GTS and the GTU in order to preserve the proof of AEMD’s rights and contract, and on the basis of AEMD’s legitimate interest in the recognition, the exercise or the legal defence of its rights in the event of a dispute.
The Data will then be definitively deleted or irreversibly anonymised. For more information on your right to ask us to delete your data see below.
The specific retention periods also apply with regard to cookies, as provided for in this Policy.
