When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it, or, if this is not reasonably possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information on hardened servers that are hosted on highly secure data centres, and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
