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.

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.
