Retention of Data

ApprovalMax will retain your Personal Data only for as long as necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy.

ApprovalMax will also retain Usage Data for internal analysis purposes. Usage Data is generally retained for a shorter period of time, except when this data is used to strengthen the security or to improve the functionality of our service, or we are legally obligated to retain this data for longer time periods.

We provide the option for customers to keep data after their subscription ends. Otherwise all data is completely removed from the dashboard and server. Every user can request to keep or remove Usage Data using the account page or by contacting support.
