How long we keep your personal data

We delete personal data when it is no longer needed for the purposes, which are described in this privacy notice.

In each case, unless otherwise specified in this privacy notice, the criteria we use to determine our retention periods are: (i) whether we need your personal data to protect our legitimate interest, to perform a contract to which you are subject, or to respond to your inquiries, or to provide the requested service or support; (ii) whether there is a legal obligation to which we are subject; or (iii) whether retention is advisable in light of our legal position (e.g., with respect to applicable statutes of limitations, litigation, or regulatory investigations).
