5.     Retention of your Personal Data

Livlina applies the general principle. We do not retain your personal data longer than strictly necessary for the realisation of the purposes for which we received it. The retention periods differ with regards to the type of processing activity and the purpose for which the personal data were collected.

In all cases, personal data may be retained for a longer period if there is a legal or regulatory reason to do so, or for a shorter period if the data subject objects to the processing of his/her personal data and if there is no longer a legitimate reason to retain them.

We guarantee to only provide limited access to archived data and to remove or render anonymous your personal data if the retention period has passed.

If you would like more information about the retention periods we use, you can always contact us via  

6.     Disclosure to Third Parties

Livlina does not share personal data of its customers to third parties except in the following specific cases:

  • Personal data may be shared with external service providers to which Livlina has outsourced certain processing activities (e.g., website construction, management and maintenance, customer database management, cloud services, etc.). Livlina carefully selects its partners in such a way that they handle your personal data as dutifully as Livlina does itself. Moreover, they receive these personal data only to process them on behalf of Livlina and do so on our strict instructions. Livlina therefore does not sell your personal data to third parties and these parties may not use the data for their own (commercial) purposes. Livlina has also concluded a processor agreement with each of these parties (“processors”).

In case personal data needs to be transferred to a third party outside the EEA, Livlina applies the rules on international transfer of personal data in line with the provisions of the GDPR.

7.     Security and Confidentiality of your Personal Data

Livlina has taken several technical and organisational security measures to prevent the destruction, loss, falsification, alteration, unauthorized access or disclosure of your personal data to third parties and any other unauthorised processing of these data.

We have made every effort to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the information systems and services that process personal data. These measures include physical and operational security measures, access control, awareness raising and confidentiality clauses. All our employees and third parties engaged by us are obliged to respect the privacy and security of your data.

8.    Changes to our Privacy Statement

We may amend or update this Privacy Statement from time to time to reflect changes in our practices with respect to the processing of your personal data, or changes in applicable law. We will be doing this by posting the updated version on this website. When we publish changes to our Privacy Statement, we will change the date and version number of the “last update” of our Privacy Statement. Significant changes will be reported on our homepage. Nevertheless, we encourage you to read our Privacy Statement periodically.
