The criteria used to determine our retention periods include: (i) the length of time we have an ongoing relationship with you and provide the site to you; (ii) whether there is a legal obligation to which we are subject; or (iii) whether retention is advisable in light of our legal position (such as in regard to the enforcement of the site Terms of Use, applicable statutes of limitations, litigation or regulatory investigations).

Information About Your Rights Regarding Your Personal Data

You have certain rights regarding our use and processing of your Personal Data.

If your Personal Data are covered by the GDPR (applicable if you are an individual within the European Economic Area), you have the following rights with respect to your Personal Data:

  • The right to request access to the Personal Data that TauRx has about you;
  • The right to rectify or correct any Personal Data that is inaccurate or incomplete;
