All your Personal Information and content from Lemi will be erased from our platform when you delete your account. However, we periodically back-up our entire server and platform as a security measure. Your information may be stored in our backups temporarily even after your account has been terminated. These backups will not be accessed and will be deleted in due course as the back-ups are cleared. We will take reasonable steps to ensure that your information is not retained longer than necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected.
Your Rights and Choices About Your Information
1. You may update, review, and edit your profile, and change your privacy settings at any time.
2. You may configure your privacy settings as “public” or “private”. If your privacy settings are configured as “public”, all other users of our Services will be able to view your profile and content. If your privacy settings are configured as “private”, only users you permit (i.e., your “followers”) will be able to view your profile and content. If you reconfigure your privacy settings from “public” to “private”, your existing followers will continue to be able to view your profile and content. If you wish to remove this permission, you can manually remove a follower from your list of followers.
3. You may opt not to receive our newsletter or promotional messages. We may still send you non-promotional messages, including information about your account or your use of our Services;
4. You may delete your account at any time. Immediately after you have deleted your account, your information and content will no longer be accessible to you or other users of our Services.
5. You may open a new account at any time.
Because we are not able to determine the age of individuals who access our Services, we apply a blanket policy. If you are a minor (which, for the purposes of this policy, means children younger than thirteen years of age), you may not create an account, and may not otherwise access or use our Services without the prior consent of a parent or guardian.
We do not seek or intend to receive any Personal Information from minors. If we discover that we have collected Personal Information from a minor without the prior consent of a parent or guardian, we will delete this Personal Information as soon as is reasonably possible.
