Retention and Conservation of Your Information
Your personal information is stored on servers hosted in the United States.* Your personal information is subject to the laws of the countries in which it is stored and used, and the privacy legislation of these countries may differ from those applicable in your country of residence. Under the laws of the United States, the courts, organizations responsible for applying the legislation, regulatory agencies or safety authorities may under some circumstances be authorized to access your personal information. By giving us your personal information, you agree to allow it to be transferred to the United States, which has a different regime for protecting personal information than that of your country of residence.
*The personal information of users who use our Services in China is stored in servers hosted in China. Information can also be stored locally on the devices that you use to access our Services. You Data is stored for as long as we need it to provide the Services to you. If you delete your account, we will also delete this information. However, please note that: (1) there may be a delay before this information is deleted from our servers and our backup servers; and (2) our legal obligations might require us to retain this information.

Our Services are not intended for children under 13 years of age. If we learn that we have collected personal information on a child under 13 years of age without first having received the authorization of a parent or guardian, we will take the necessary measures to delete that information within a reasonable timeframe.
We believe that the Data you have given us must receive the same protection as though it were stored on your home computer’s hard drive.
This is why our team regularly tests the vulnerability of our Services and continues to work on developing features to protect your Content and Data.
Right to Access and Correct
