10.4     getlion will not keep the user’s personal information for longer than the period for which it was originally required, unless getlion is prescribed by law to do so, or users consent to getlion retaining such information for a longer period. Once the personal information is no longer required and/or a user terminates his/her account with gelion and/or the app is permanently deleted for use by the user, then a user’s personal information will be safely and securely archived for a period of five (5) years for historical, statistical or research purposes.
