d. How Long We Retain Personal Information.
Account information: We retain your account information for as long as your account is active and a reasonable period thereafter in case you decide to re-activate the Services. We also retain some of your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, to resolve disputes, to enforce our agreements, to support business operations, and to continue to develop and improve our Services.
Information you share on the Services: If your account is deleted, some of your information and the content you have provided will remain in order to allow your team members or other users to make full use of the Services.
Managed accounts: If the Services are made available to you through an organization (e.g., your employer), we retain your information as long as required by the administrator of your account under our agreement with your employer.
Marketing information: If you have elected to receive marketing emails from us, we retain information about your marketing preferences for a reasonable period of time from the date you last expressed interest in our Services, such as when you last opened an email from us or ceased using your Vested Chat account.

b. How We May Collect Other Information
We collect Other Information in a variety of ways, including:
c. How We May Use and Disclose Other Information.
We may use and disclose Other Information (by definition, non-personally identifiable) for any purpose permitted by applicable law. If we are required to treat any element of Other Information as Personal Information, then we may only use that information as described in the “Personal Information” section above. If we combine Other Information with Personal Information, we will treat the combined information as Personal Information as long as it is combined.
For clarity, Other Information collected from Corporate Site visitors is non-personally identifiable and cannot be linked to Personal Information, except in the case where the Corporate Site visitor provides Personal Information to the Corporate Site (e.g., in a request for information). By contrast, the Other Information collected from Platform users is, in many cases, linked to Personal Information through the user log-in, and would be Personal Information.

Service Providers: We work with third-party service providers to provide website and application development, hosting, maintenance, backup, storage, virtual infrastructure, payment processing, analysis and other services for us, which may require them to access or use Information about you.

Compliance with Enforcement Requests and Applicable Laws; Enforcement of Our Rights: In exceptional circumstances, we may share Information about you with a third party if we believe that sharing is reasonably necessary to (a) comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, including to meet national security requirements, (b) enforce our agreements, policies and terms of service, (c) protect the security or integrity of our products and services, (d) protect Vested Chat, our customers or the public from harm or illegal activities, or (e) respond to an emergency which we believe in good faith requires us to disclose Information to assist in preventing the death or serious bodily injury of any person.
