How long do we store your information?
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for your personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data. We consider the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
Personal information is stored as long as you have an active relationship with us or our digital channels, or until you ask us to delete stored information about you. We define a relationship with us or our digital channels such as (i) being a customer of us, (ii) agreeing to receive marketing information from us, or (iii) actively requesting contact with us through social media, electronic messages or online forms.
For example, if you send us your CV and apply for a job, but do not recieve the job, we will delete the information within 30 days, unless you consent to us archiving the CV. If you provide your consent, we will delete the personal data no later than 3 years unless you grant us a new consent.
Retention of anonymous information is not subject to such limitations or requirements. In addition, we try to ensure that personal information and other customer information is updated and correct and that we do not store any information that is unnecessary in relation to the purposes of processing personal information.
