We will make sure that those parties we have shared your data with (7) also correct their information. While you are a registered user, you will always be able to edit your profile information.

c. Ask us to erase some or all of your data.

i. As long as there is not a legal or contractual reason which prevents us doing so, we will delete your profile and your personal data. This will erase all of your data (or all your data that you ask us to erase) from the platform and backend systems, including your contributions to conversations.

ii. If we are prevented from deleting some of your personal data by a contractual or legal obligation, we will inform you of this. We will let you know what data we are holding, why, where it is being stored and how it is being used.

d. Additionally, in the unlikely event of a data breach, we will inform you of what information was compromised and what we are doing to rectify the situation.

You can ask us to do any of these things quickly and easily by emailing us using the contact details at 1.
