Data will be erased without special notice as soon as the mentioned purposes cease to exist, unless specified to the contrary.
Registration forms are kept by the respective hotels and accommodation facilities for the statutory minimum retention periods according to the applicable registration law and will then be brought to destruction under specific precautions meeting the relevant data protection standards.
