Accessing and updating Personal Information
When you use the Services, we make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your Personal Information and either to correct this data if it is inaccurate or to delete such data at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes.
We ask individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate costs and/or technical effort, jeopardise the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes), or for which access is not otherwise required. Because of the way we maintain certain Services in connection with the Platforms, you acknowledge that residual copies may take a period of time before they are deleted from our active servers and may remain in our backup systems.
When we receive formal written complaints, it is our policy to contact the complaining user regarding his or her concerns.
