DATA RETENTION POLICY
BNI Worldwide Development Ltd, which controls data
for and on behalf of BNI Global, LLC, together with its related
affiliates (“BNI”, “our” or “we”) has
developed this Data Retention Policy (“Policy”)
to ensure that necessary records and documents of BNI are
adequately protected and maintained and to ensure that records
that are no longer needed by BNI or are of no value are
discarded at the proper time.
This Policy represents the BNI’s policy regarding
the retention and disposal of records and the retention and
disposal of electronic documents.
Your data will only be retained for as long is necessary
to fulfil the purposes for which it was obtained.
For members, at a minimum
this will be for the duration of your membership and likely
longer depending upon applicable laws, rules and regulations.
For non-members, this
will be for the duration needed to align with your engagement
with us, such as, by way of example only, to enable us to send
invitations to Chapter meetings, for maintaining subscriptions
to email newsletters, or for the duration of your participation
in one of our core groups prior to Chapter launch.
Suspension of Record
Disposal in Event of Litigation or Claims
In the event BNI is served with any subpoena or
request for documents or BNI becomes aware of a governmental
investigation or audit concerning BNI or the commencement of any
litigation against or concerning BNI, any further disposal of
documents shall be suspended until BNI determines otherwise.
10 years after leaving BNI
7 years after last activity/interaction with BNI
BNI may make modifications to the Policy from time
to time to ensure that it is in compliance with local, state and
federal laws and includes the appropriate document and record
categories for BNI; monitor local, state and federal laws
affecting record retention; annually review the record retention
and disposal program; and monitor compliance with this Policy.
In the event of inconsistency between any terms of
this contract and any translation into another language, the
English version will control and prevail on any question of
interpretation or otherwise.
