4. Categories of Information We Collect
5. Retention of Personal Information
We retain Personal Information about you for as long as it is needed for the purposes described above, or as otherwise required by law.

Where we have no continuing legitimate business need to process Personal Information about you, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because Personal Information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store Personal Information about you and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
6. Protection of Personal Information
We implement reasonable and appropriate physical, technical, and administrative measures to protect information under our control. However, no method of transmission or electronic storage is fully secure, and we cannot guarantee absolute security.

Stellar does not employ individuals under the age of sixteen (16), and we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from such individuals. In the event we become aware of such processing, we will take steps to delete it.

Please email us at email@example.com to request access to, correct, or delete Personal Information that you have provided to us. Note that we may be required, by law or otherwise, to keep certain information, in which case we will comply with your deletion request only after we have fulfilled such requirements. When we delete Personal Information, it may remain in our archived data. We may also retain Non-Personal Information about use of the Sites.

Moreover, while we do not sell Employee Personal Information in the way the term “sell” is commonly used, we do disclose limited cookie data to our business partners in order to provide and maintain our Sites.
