Furthermore, data will be passed on to German and foreign authorities, companies and private individuals if this is necessary in order to receive further information from them that is necessary for the determination of heirs.

Personal data will be deleted as soon as the purpose for collecting them has been fulfilled and provided there are no legal regulations to the contrary. For example, storage obligations under tax law can be up to ten years, and within the framework of limitation periods, evidence may have to be stored for up to 30 years.
