6. HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR INFORMATION?
When we have no ongoing legitimate business needs to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymise such information, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

We have implemented appropriate and reasonable technical and organisational security measures designed to protect the security and any personal information we process.
