If you have an active neurovoice.org account you can request that your Personal Data be edited or deleted. This can be done by sending a Private Message (PM) to “neurovoice.org: GDPR” (if for any reason you are unable to access or send a PM please email email@example.com and we will get back to you with further instructions).
For closed accounts, all Personal Data will be deleted. Posts made by users whose accounts were subsequently closed cannot be associated with other information held by neurovoice.org that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person and as such are not considered Personal Data.
In specific instances where the content of a post contains sensitive data or data that could be used to identify an individual and where the original poster no longer has an active neurovoice.org account you can request that we edit or delete the post; these requests will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.
7. Closing your account and our right to ban accounts or remove user privileges
You can close your user account at any time. This process is irreversible and permanent.
Closing your account means we will delete your password, remove any email subscriptions or notifications you may receive, delete all Personal Data we hold about you and turn off your Private Messages. This process does not remove any posts you have made on the site and does not remove the IP address that is captured when each post is submitted.
The posts are retained as they are an intrinsic part of the thread in which they are posted and removing them may make the thread unreadable or make the other posts difficult to understand or follow. The IP addresses captured with each post are retained for anti-spamming purposes. It should be noted that post IP address cannot be linked with other data to identify the individual who made the post as all other data concerning that individual will have been permanently deleted upon account closure.
neurovoice.org may at its absolute discretion refuse you access to the site and/or cancel/terminate your user privileges without prior notice for any reason and you shall not be entitled to any compensation in respect of cancellation/termination of your user privileges. If we disable your account you will not be entitled to create another account without our permission.
Without limiting the foregoing, the following will lead to a suspension of your privileges on neurovoice.org:

- extended periods of inactivity
