When determining the retention period, we take into account various criteria, such as the nature and length of our relationship with you, mandatory retention periods provided by law and the statute of limitations, the type of Services requested by or provided to you, the possible re-enrolment with our Services, and the impact on our Services if we delete some information from or about you.
