2.11 Data Retention and Deletion
We retain personal and sensitive personal information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements, to enforce our agreements or comply with our legal obligations).
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing, until deletion or return is possible.
2.12 California Users Only–Your Privacy Rights
California Shine the Light Law: The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”), effective as of January 1, 2020, requires businesses that collect personal information of California residents to make certain disclosures regarding how they collect, use and disclose such information.

- request that we disclose personal information we collect, use and disclose.
As a processor of such data, Oncospace expects all such resident requests to be proxied via the respective Oncospace customer (entity) that supplied the information to Oncospace in the first place. To do so, these entities may write to Oncospace at firstname.lastname@example.org.
