Please note that if you request the erasure of your personal information:
We may retain some of your personal information as necessary for our legitimate business interests, such as fraud detection and prevention and enhancing safety.

We may retain and use your personal information to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations. For example, PMC may keep some of your information for tax, legal reporting and auditing obligations.
Information you have shared with others (e.g., comment postings) may continue to be publicly visible on the Site, even after your PMC Account is cancelled. However, attribution of such information to you will be removed. Additionally, some copies of your information (e.g., log records) may remain in our database, but are disassociated from personal identifiers.
Because we maintain the Site to protect from accidental or malicious loss and destruction, residual copies of your personal information may not be removed from our backup systems for a limited period of time.

Where you have expressly provided your consent to the processing of your personal information by PMC you may withdraw your consent at any time by changing your Account settings or by sending a communication to PMC specifying which consent you are withdrawing.

13.5 Objection to Processing
In some jurisdictions, applicable law may permit you to legally object to PMC’s processing. In these instances, you may require PMC not to process your personal information for specific purposes (including profiling) where such processing is based on legitimate interest. If you object to such processing PMC will no longer process your personal information for these purposes unless we can demonstrate a legal basis for doing so or such processing is required for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
At any time, regardless of applicable law, you may object to us processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes. You may, at any time, ask PMC to cease processing your data for these direct marketing purposes by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
