We have taken appropriate safeguards so that your data is protected in the way we've explained in this Privacy Notice.

We will keep information and records about you for as long as you're a HuYu user and for 117 weeks after you stop being a HuYu user (for example, to deal with any claims or complaints which you may make and to manage any requests you make to exchange your HuYu points for rewards).
If you have given us your phone number for the purposes of participating in a focus group or feedback session, we will only keep your phone number for the period necessary for the purposes of arranging the focus group or feedback session you have opted in for.
