5. HOW WE SECURE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Spody Enterprises LLC uses a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. While we implement safeguards designed to protect your Personal Information, no security system is impenetrable and, due to the inherent nature of the internet, we cannot guarantee that data, during transmission through the internet or while stored on our systems or otherwise in our care, is absolutely safe from intrusion by others. You should take steps to protect the security of your user account information, login, and password.
6. HOW LONG WE RETAIN YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We retain Personal Information for as long as necessary to provide the products and fulfil the transactions you have requested, or for other legitimate purposes such as complying with our legal obligations, resolving disputes, enforcing our agreements, and improving our products. Because these needs can vary for different data types, the context of our interactions with you or your use of products, actual data retention periods can vary significantly.
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your Personal Information, we will either delete or anonymize the Personal Information or, if this is not possible (for example, because your Personal Information has been stored in backup archives), we then securely store your Personal Information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
When we collect Personal Information as a processor on behalf of the controller, the controller is the party who provides instructions on deleting or anonymizing the Personal Information.
7. HOW TO ACCESS AND CONTROL YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
You may access and review the Personal Information SPODY ENTERPRISES stores about you and correct any factual errors. Most of your Personal Information may be accessed and corrected by simply logging into your account and accessing your profile.

In some instances, our use of your Personal Information may result in automated decisions being taken (including profiling).
Automated decisions mean a decision concerning you is made automatically on the basis of a computer determination (using software algorithms), without our human review. For example, we use automated decisions to provide targeted advertising on our Services that may be of interest to you.
