II.

IV. That The Interpreters shall not (and shall procure that no sub-contractor or agent shall not) retain the Customer Personal Data or any copies or records thereof for longer than is reasonably necessary to perform The Interpreters obligations under this Agreement and shall if so required return the Customer Personal Data to the Customer upon termination or expiry of this Agreement.
