Retention of personal information
How long we keep information we collect about you depends on the type of information as described in further detail below.
We retain personal information that you provide to us where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, as long as is required in order to contact you about our Websites, Electronic Newsletters, Magazines or Events, or as needed to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements).
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we securely delete the information. We will delete this information from the servers at an earlier date if you so request. If you provide information to our customers as part of their use of our websites, electronic newsletters or Events, our customers decide how long to retain the personal information they collect from you.
If you have elected to receive marketing communications from us, we retain information about your marketing preferences for a reasonable period of time from the date you last expressed interest in our content, products, or services, such as when you last opened an email from us. We retain information derived from cookies and other tracking technologies for a reasonable period of time from the date such information was created.
