B.9. Storing and protecting your personal information

Safeguarding security is very important to us, so we store and process personal data in accordance with the high requirements of data protection legislation. From time to time and for operational reasons, personal data collected may be transferred and stored in countries other than the European Economic Area (“EEA”). Your information can be processed by our service providers outside of the EEA. However, when selecting our service providers (some of which are located in the United States) to help us provide products and services to our users, we ensure that they have the right security measures.

Security and protection. We will do our utmost to keep our website and related database, where information is kept, safe. We use trusted security and monitoring services at both server and website level. However, we cannot guarantee its safety. By using our website, you agree to the risks associated with online services and their security breaches and that we shall not be held liable for any breach of security. In the event of a breach of our database, we will issue an announcement on our website and send an email to each person affected by it as soon as possible and later report the action we took in response.

B.10 How long will we keep your personal information?

If you create an account, we will store your name, address, email and phone number. Unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law, we may only store your personal information in our system for the period of time required to use for the purpose outlined in this Privacy Policy or until you request deletion. If you do not use any of our services within a reasonable time (which may vary depending on the service you registered), we can contact you regarding your account. Even if your personal information is deleted, backup or archived data may be retained for legal, tax or regulatory purposes.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

We generally store information about you for as long as we need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it, and we are not legally required to continue keeping it. For example, we will store purchase information for 7 years for tax and accounting purposes. This includes your name, email address and billing and shipping addresses. We do not store bank account nor bank card details.
