How long will we keep your personal data?
Whenever we collect or process your personal data, we’ll only keep it for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected.

Some examples of customer data retention periods:
When you place an order to publish an advert on any of our media channels, we’ll keep the personal data you give us for five years so we can comply with our legal and contractual obligations.
If you’ve not used your account for more than five years, it will be flagged as inactive and we’ll contact you to ask whether you want to keep it open. Unless you reply to say ‘yes’, we’ll close the account and delete the personal data associated with it.
