We also collect, use, and share Aggregated Data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated Data may be derived from Personal Data but is not considered ‘personal data’ as a matter of law as this data will not directly or indirectly reveal a User’s identity.

Nor do we collect any information about criminal convictions and offences.
We shall process and retain Personal Data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting, or reporting requirements. We may retain such data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation or a dispute in connection with our relationship with a User.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of Personal Data, the purposes for which we process such data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements (including any prescribed retention periods within the jurisdiction where such data is processed).
We shall retain the Personal Data provided by Users as long as they use our services. However, subject to any continuing legal or regulatory obligations (above) to retain Personal Data, we shall destroy Users’ Personal Data from our systems when a User wishes to unregister or is disqualified and, therefore, subject to deregistration according to our prevailing “Terms and Conditions of Business” from time to time in force.
If the retention of any Personal Data is required under Applicable Law, the Company will retain the information for a such period (“Retention Period”) as required or permitted in compliance with such Applicable Law, notwithstanding any request by a User to delete or destroy such data.
Save as specified below, we do not provide, share or otherwise or disclose any of the collected Personal Data to third parties including for-profit and non-profit enterprises; however, it may disclose Personal Data to a specified third party after obtaining prior consent from a User by letter, email, phone, or the website.
