Legal Basis for Processing
Our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described in the above sections will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.

In some cases we may be required legally to collect or disclose personal information; in which case we will make this clear. In other cases, where we rely on an alternative legal basis, we will do so only with the appropriate legal requirements in place. For any questions on our legal basis for processing, please contact us at email@example.com.

To comply with laws: if we receive a valid request for information, we may disclose personal information if we reasonably believe disclosure is in accordance with or required to comply with the legal process, a government request, or any applicable law or regulation.
How long do we keep your data?
We only process and keep any personal information for as long as necessary to achieve the purpose for which the information was originally collected. The exact length of time we keep personal information depends on our processing purposes and the statutory retention period for that type of information. After the statutory period of time passes, or if storage of personal information is not needed, personal information is deleted or anonymized.
