HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR DATA

We are only allowed to keep your personal data for as long as it's still necessary for the purpose we initially required it.

But as we are in financial services and bound by strict regulations, this means that we need to retain the data we hold about you for a minimum of 7 years after termination of your Paymoo account. If (local) regulations require us to retain it longer or delete it sooner, we will follow these retention periods.

If you delete your Paymoo account or invoke your right to be forgotten, we will use feasible solutions to make it no longer directly available in our systems, like archiving it. This means that in such case we will no longer process your data.
