Annually we make assessments of whether the purposes of the processing of personal data still seems reasonable; if not, data will be deleted.
What types of information is registered?
In order to have a membership, it is required that you associate it with an email address (but you can switch email address at anytime). We also store the IP addresses that you use during the last 3 months, in order for you to be able to see that noone else has attempted to log on to your account and so that the site administrators can protect members of site misuse. We ask for your age in order to ensure that every member is at least 18 years old (you can of course adjust your age anytime so it's correct). The processing of these data is based upon a balancing of interests in order for ABDL Scandinavia to be able to detect potential misuses and in order to provide a save and ordered environment for the clientele.

Neither IP addresses or your e-mail address is accessible for other members, unless you yourself actively chooses to display your e-mail address on your profile page. If you close your membership and thereby signals that you no longer wishes this information to be processed by ABDL Scandinavia, your email and age will be deleted from our systems.
