Koogi may also collect and process certain information related to Your chosen method of payment. The personal information collected by Koogi for this purpose serves to check Your eligibility for the Service and to identify Your method of payment. However, as Koogi cooperates with third party payment service providers who operate independently in systems separated from Koogi, no complete payment data, such as complete credit card numbers, will be stored or collected by Koogi.
5. HOW LONG IS THE DATA KEPT?
Koogi will keep personal information regarding You only as long as it is necessary, having regard to the purpose of the processing. This means that personal information collected and processed for marketing purposes will be stored for as long as You have an account and deleted twelve (12) months after Your subscription has ended unless You have given Koogi Your voluntary consent to continue to process such data. In order to monitor usage of gift cards and Free Trial periods, we will store the basic information You have provided at sign up (Your name and/or user name, e-mail address and/or phone number, and payment details) for a period of twenty-four (24) months after Your subscription, use of a gift card or Free Trial has ended. We will also, during the same period, keep Your personal Koogi requests & media library information, to facilitate Your easy return.

6. WHY DOES KOOGI PROCESS INFORMATION ABOUT YOU?
Koogi processes Your personal information for various purposes. Primarily, Koogi processes Your personal information in order to provide, manage, develop and customize the Service and its features, to manage the customer relationship with You and to meet security and other statutory requirements. Your personal information may also provide the basis for market and customer analysis, market research, statistics, business monitoring, and business and methodological development for Koogi. This may e.g. include processing of personal data for the purpose of creating customer audiences on third party platforms.
Koogi also processes Your personal information to provide better and more personalized offers and services. Personal information may, for example, be processed, linked, segmented and analyzed in order, by means of targeted marketing, to provide information, offers, or recommendations on Koogi or its partners’ goods and services, which are tailored to Your preferences, behaviors, needs or lifestyle. Koogi may also analyze and combine the information about You to which Koogi has access via the Service from Your online visits or other records (e.g. Facebook or other similar social media providers) for purposes specified in this section.
7. WHAT IS THE LEGAL BASIS FOR THE PROCESSING?
A majority of the personal information that Koogi processes about You are processed because it is necessary for Koogi’s performance of the Terms, i.e. in order for Koogi to be able to provide and administer the Service and its features. Such is the case when Koogi processes, inter alia, Your contact information such as Your e-mail address or Your phone number and information from the payment service provider.
Some of the personal information that Koogi processes are processed based on a balance of interest, i.e. Koogi’s interest in processing the data outweighs the impact and risk the processing may have on Your integrity. Such is the case when Koogi processes Your data for marketing purposes and when we store Your Koogi audio/e-book library information after your subscription has ended.
Additionally, some data is processed based on Your consent. This is the case for the processing of such data that Koogi gets access to via Your Facebook account and for marketing of Koogi’s partners’ goods and services.
To the extent that processing is carried out on the basis of consent, it is voluntarily for You to give such consent and You may at any time, wholly or partly, withdraw Your consent. If You choose to withdraw Your consent, and Koogi’s processing is such that it requires Your consent, the processing will be carried out in accordance with Your most recently given consent.
