When we no longer need your personal information to provide you with our services or comply with a legal obligation, we will either delete, anonymize, or aggregate it or, if this is not possible (for instance, if your information is located in backup archives), then we will ensure its security by protecting it from unauthorised access, use, or disclosure.
