Once your Personal Information is no longer required to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected, Company will destroy, erase, or make it anonymous and in so doing will take care to prevent unauthorized parties from gaining access to your Personal Information. If Company has disclosed your Personal Information to a third party in accordance with these Terms of Service, we will ensure that it is only retained by that third party for as long as is necessary for that third party to complete the purpose for which we provided it to them.
