Retention Period for Your Information:

 

We retain your personal data only for as long as necessary for legitimate business reasons and as permitted by applicable laws. If you opt to discontinue using our services, you can close your account, which will render your profile invisible to other users. Please note that if you're inactive for two years, we'll automatically close your account. Upon closure, we delete your personal data as outlined below:

 

1. To ensure the safety and security of our users, we maintain a safety retention window of up to three months after account closure. During this period, we retain your information in case it's required to investigate unlawful or harmful activities. This retention is based on our legitimate interest and that of potential third-party victims.

 

2. Once the safety retention period ends, we delete your data and retain only limited information for specific purposes, as detailed below:

 

   a. We retain limited data to adhere to legal data retention obligations. This includes transaction data for tax and accounting purposes, credit card information for transaction disputes, and traffic data/logs for one year to meet legal requirements. We also keep records of user consents to demonstrate compliance with applicable laws.

 

   b. We retain limited information based on our legitimate interest. This includes customer care records, imprecise location data for customer care decisions, and data necessary to prevent banned users or minors from opening new accounts.
