How Long do we Keep Your Information
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize such information, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

Each newsletter also contains an “opt out” or “unsubscribe” link to simplify this process for you.
If a Website user makes this election, subject to the following sentence, your personally-identifiable information will be removed from our servers. If, however, you or your company have ongoing transactions with us, or we have a dispute with regard to a transaction previously placed or processed, your information that relates to this transaction or dispute will be retained as long as required to resolve the matter or conclude the transaction. Also, we do keep your information for purposes of tracking your “opt-out” request.
