Data Storage

Personal Data collected may be stored and processed in your region or in the countries where Blue Cedars’ service providers maintain facilities. These countries include the United States of America. 

Data Retention

We govern data retention periods according to specific business-sector legal requirements and stated practices, as well as the type of data and the context in which we collected the data provided such retention does not infringe on data protection laws. 

Blue Cedar is required to retain some information in accordance with the law, such as information needed for income tax and audit purposes, for a period specified by such laws.

For as long as we maintain a non-contractual business relationship, and notwithstanding any legal requirement, as stated above, we will retain your data for only as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected, before making it non-identifiable or deleting it.

If you become a client of ours under contract, we will retain your data for the duration of our relationship and, notwithstanding any legal requirement as stated above, for a maximum of two years after termination of the contract, unless the data subject requests to be forgotten sooner.

We may retain Personal Data for additional periods depending on individual business needs. Even after you ask us to remove your data, unsubscribe from lists, etc., we may still need to retain your email address on a “suppression” list to ensure that you no longer receive our communications.

If at any time, before the end of the stated retention period, you would like us to remove your data from our database or your preferences otherwise change, notwithstanding any legal requirement as stated above, please contact unsubscribe@bluecedar.com and ask to have your information removed from our marketing lists.
