Information retention and deletion

SUMMARY

GoodHuman retains user profile and other information for as long as you maintain your GoodHuman account.

GoodHuman retains transaction, location, usage and other information for 7 years in connection with regulatory, tax, insurance or other requirements in the places in which it operates. GoodHuman thereafter deletes or anonymises such information in accordance with applicable laws.

If you withdraw consent to the collection or use of personal information for optional features, such as features that use your calendar or address book, GoodHuman deletes such personal information.

Users may request deletion of their accounts at any time. Following such request, GoodHuman deletes the information that it is not required to retain, and restricts access to or use of any information it is required to retain.

GoodHuman requires user profile information in order to provide its services and retains such information for as long as you maintain your GoodHuman account.

GoodHuman retains certain information, including transaction, location, device and usage information, for a minimum of 7 years in connection with regulatory, tax, insurance and other requirements in the places in which it operates. Once such information is no longer necessary to provide GoodHuman's services, enable customer support, enhance the user experience or for other operational purposes, GoodHuman takes steps to prevent access to or use of such information for any purpose other than compliance with these requirements or for purposes of safety, security and fraud prevention and detection.

You may request deletion of your account at any time through the privacy settings in the GoodHuman app, or via GoodHuman's website here.

Following such requests, GoodHuman deletes the information that it is not required to retain. In certain circumstances, GoodHuman may be unable to delete your account, such as if there is an unresolved claim or dispute. Upon resolution of the issue preventing deletion, GoodHuman will delete your account as described above.

GoodHuman may also retain certain information if necessary for its legitimate business interests, such as fraud prevention and enhancing users' safety and security. For example, if GoodHuman shuts down a user's account because of unsafe behaviour or security incidents, GoodHuman may retain certain information about that account to prevent that user from opening a new GoodHuman account in the future.
