SECURITY

FRANKE is a global organization, with legal entities, business processes, management structures, and technical systems that cross borders. Therefore, our privacy practices are designed to provide protection for personal data all over the world. It is FRANKE’s policy to give access to personal data only to those authorized employees, agents, contractors, entities and Processors that FRANKE determines have a legitimate need to know, or have access to, the information in order to carry out their responsibilities. FRANKE uses technical and organizational security measures to protect the data supplied by you and managed by us against manipulation, loss, destruction, and access by third parties. Our security measures are continually improved in line with technological developments.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

DATA RETENTION

Unless we provided specific retention periods above, these general rules apply:

Your data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the intended purposes or if you revoke your consent, or objected to a use based on legitimate interest and we have no overriding legitimate grounds. In some cases, longer retention periods may apply because we are required by law (e.g. under tax and commercial law), or data are required for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
