We will hold your Personal Information for as long as is necessary for the relevant purpose for which that Personal Information was obtained unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law (such as tax, accounting, or other legal requirements).

To determine the appropriate retention period for Personal Information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the Personal Information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your Personal Information, the purposes for which we process your Personal Information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
