In the case, of course, we will observe any information requirements under Article 13 para. 3 GDPR and Article14 para. 4 GDPR.

On what legal basis is that based?
The legal basis for the processing of personal data is basically - as far as there is no specific legislation - Article 6 GDPR. Here are the following options in particular:

We process and store the data as long as this is necessary for the respective purpose.

After expiry of the storage obligation, it is checked whether there is any further need for processing. Is there no longer a necessity, the data are deleted.
