Information that is older than the pre-set retention period will be obfuscated and archived.

Some information may be retained to comply with our legal obligations, to resolve disputes, to enforce our agreements, to support business operations, for marketing purposes according to your registered preferences if you have opted to receive such communication, information derived from cookies, and information required to continue to develop and improve our Services.

As part of your use of the Service, you may share information with other users of the Service. Those users of the Service may be located in nearly any location around the world, may be communicating with third-party Sites (other websites and resources on the Internet that are not operated or controlled by BM Connect) while using the Services, and may be limited by law or by an agreement with us about their use of information you share. However, this Policy only addresses our use of the information.
We may share information with employees, contractors, agents, or consultants with a strict need-to-know under appropriate confidentiality obligations.
We may share information with third parties which provide business-related functions on behalf of BM Connect, including:
Where we provide access to the Services to you under contract with an organization (for example your employer), or if you use an email address provided by an organization to access the Services, that organization may act as the controller of the information. Your use of the Services may be subject to that organization's policies. Each organization may appoint administrative users of the Services. An administrator may have the ability to access, modify, and/or delete certain information that you have provided, give information to third-party Sites, and restrict your access to the Services and information in whole or in part.
In this situation, BM Connect is the processor, rather than the controller, of your information. Where we are the processor, we do not control why or how your information is used, and you will need to contact your relevant controller (e.g. your employer and/or the company which provides you access to the Services) to find out about your data protection rights and responsibilities. All questions about your organization’s policies and administrative user access rights should be directed to your organization.

Otherwise, personal data will be deleted or obfuscated within 180 days of the deactivation of your account.
