5. The period of the data storage
Your personal data will be processed for no longer than it is necessary to achieve the specific purpose described in this policy.

Transfers of personal data to third countries or international organizations
Some of the entities (such as Twitter) are based in the United States, other entities (such as Facebook and LinkedIn) are based in the European Economic Area, but it cannot be excluded that they will transfer the data to maternity companies in the United States.
We inform you about this because the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), in its judgment of 16 July 2020 in the case C-311/18 Data Protection Commissioner v Facebook Ireland Ltd. and Maximilian Schrems, annulled the European Commission's implementing decision ( EU) 2016/1250 on the adequacy of the protection provided by the EU-US Privacy Shield. Thus, the CJEU recognized the United States as a country that does not ensure an adequate level of personal data protection (in line with European Union standards). In the case of data transfer to the United States, there is a risk that the data may be processed by the US authorities / services for the purposes of control and supervision, possibly without the possibility of pursuing legal claims.
Any transfer of personal data to the United States will be based on standard contractual clauses pursuant to article 46(2)(c) of the GDPR (in connection with Vendo contracts with suppliers of some IT solutions), or on your consent, e.g. if you consent to cookies, it will also be consent to the possible transfer of your personal data to the United States, pursuant to Article 49 (1)(a) of the GDPR in connection with article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR).
