This might mean that We keep some or all of your personal information even after you close your account with Us or otherwise end your relationship with Us, even if you exercise your deletion rights. When determining how long to retain your personal information, we take into account a number of factors, including the length and nature of our business relationship and the Services you obtain, the applicable statute(s) of limitation, and whether we are subject to any legal obligations relating to your personal information. We also might de-identify certain personal information rather than deleting it.
How Long do We Retain Your Personal Information?
