Data Retention 

As an India-based freelancer marketplace platform, we take data protection and privacy seriously. We collect data from users such as personal information and transactional data. To ensure that we comply with data protection laws and regulations, we have implemented a data retention policy.


Our policy states that data will be retained for 365 days, after which it will be reviewed. During this period, users can request the deletion of their data. We believe this retention period is reasonable and necessary for us to provide efficient services to our users.


To ensure the security of the data we collect, we perform weekly backups of our data, both online and offline. Additionally, we have installed SSL to provide a secure connection between our platform and users.


As an India-based company, we follow the laws of our land to ensure compliance with relevant data protection laws and regulations.
