Within 18 months, we remove the data from our backup media.
How do you access, correct or delete your information?
In various countries, including countries in the EEA, upon their request, Customers have the right to their personal data and, if necessary, have it amended, deleted or restricted. Customers can also ask for some types of personal data to be delivered to them, or another organization they nominate, in a structured and machine-readable format.
