We will only retain your personal data for as long as is necessary for the purposes described in this Policy.

Generally, your service-related personal data will be kept for as long as you remain Our User (this way, in the event that you delete your account on the Services, we will immediately delete any personal data, provided under such account, including, but not limited to, your name, gender, profile picture, logs, and any information on and from social networks, linked to such account).

Yet, some personal data relating to the provision of Services to you will be kept for a longer period, as long as necessary to comply with various finance- and tax-related legal obligations. After a retention period has elapsed, the personal data is securely deleted.
