The data storage period in the event that the parties are not interested in any cooperation will last up to 6 months from the time the contact ends. If cooperation is established, the storage period for the entrusted data is specified in the following paragraphs,
- the conclusion and performance of a contract or order. The legal basis for processing personal data in this case is Art 6(1)(b) of the GDPR.

This applies if you are a party to the contract or order, as well as if your employer or an entity with which you do business is a party to the contract or order, and if the Company was obliged to perform a service to you or exercise your rights on any basis. Data processing will be undertaken in such a case in order to pursue the legitimate interests of the controller, such as the protection of rights, confirmation of the fulfilment of obligations and obtaining the remuneration due therefor.
