4. PERSONAL INFORMATION DATA STORAGE
We will not keep your data longer than is necessary to achieve the purpose for which it is collected and processed or to comply with regulatory requirements. In order to identify the relevant storage period, we identify the nature and category of the personal data, the purposes of the processing, and whether we can hit those purposes otherwise.
We store your personal data to comply with our tax, accounting and/or financial reporting obligations, where we are required to retain the data by our contractual commitments to our financial partners.
Please be informed, regulations of other countries may impose additional requirements, so the data storage period may vary. In particular, if a regulation of the country where our service user resides contains the limitation of action provisions defining the period during which you may file your claim or complaint against us, and we, accordingly, need relevant proof of legal relations with you, we may process your personal data during this limitation of action period.
We also need to consider any periods when we might need to keep your personal data for complying with our legal commitments to you or supervisory authorities.
Over time, we might minimize your personal data that we use, or can even make them anonymous so that they are no longer related to you personally. In this case, we can use this information without further notice as it no longer contains any personal data.
Anyway, you can always delete or change personal data accordingly. For that purpose, please, contact the data protection specialist or just click an 'unsubscribing' button inside our email. If you find out that some of your personal data that we process are outdated, please notify us too.
If we process your personal data under the processing consent (specifically, with the purpose of marketing mailings), any subsequent processing may be terminated at any time. It only takes to revoke your consent to such processing. If an opt-out option is available, you may opt-out by following the instructions included in each communication.
