Similarly, if you consent, we may collect your photos and videos (for example, if you want to post pictures, videos, or stream on the services). The collection of your geolocation may take place in the background even when you are not using the service if your permission to us explicitly authorizes such collection.

Cookies and Other Similar Data Collection Technologies
We use and may allow others to employ cookies and similar technologies (e.g. web beacons, pixels) to recognize you and/or your device(s).
Some web browsers (including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome) have a “Do Not Track” feature (“DNT”, Do Not Track) that tells websites that users do not want their online activity tracked. If a website that responds to a DNT signal receives a DNT signal, the browser may block that site from collecting certain information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option, and DNT signals are still inconsistent. For this reason, many businesses, including SpeedCouple, are not responding to DNT signals.

How We Protect Your Information
We work hard to protect you from unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction of your personal information. As with all technology companies, although we take steps to keep your information secure, we make no promises, and you should not expect that your personal information will always be protected.
We monitor our systems for vulnerabilities and possible attacks and review our information collection, storage and processing practices to update our physical, technical and organizational security measures.
We may suspend your use of all or part of the service without notice if we suspect or discover any security breach. Please notify us immediately if you believe your account or information is no longer safe.
To ensure that our systems and your information are protected against unauthorized access, theft and loss, we have implemented a bug-fixing program.
How long do we maintain your information?
We only keep your personal information for as long as we need it for legitimate business purposes and as permitted by applicable law. To protect users’ safety and security inside and outside our services, we implement a three-month secure retention window after account deletion. The account information will be kept during this time, although the account will no longer be visible on these services.
In practice, we delete or anonymize your information when we delete your account (under a secure retention window) or after two years of continuous inactivity, unless:
- We must retain such information to comply with applicable law (for example, some “traffic data” is kept for a year to comply with statutory data retention obligations);
- We must retain such information to demonstrate our compliance with applicable law (for example, records of consent to our Terms, Terms and other similar consents are kept for five years);
- There is a major complaint or dispute that requires us to retain the relevant information until resolved; or
- The information must be kept for our legitimate business interests, such as preventing fraud and enhancing user safety and security. For example, information may be kept in order to prevent users from being banned for unsafe behaviour or security incidents from opening a new account.
Note that even if our systems are designed to perform the data erasure process as directed above, we cannot promise that all data will be deleted within a specific time due to technical limitations.
