We will for example periodically review accounts that have been inactive for a relatively long period to remove any unnecessary data. We will however confirm from you by SMS that such personal data is indeed unnecessary before any deletion.

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either erase or de-identify it.

 

AGE MATTERS.

When we collect personal data we do not know your age, and we do not knowingly collect or solicit personal data of anyone under the age of 13.
