It depends on the contract with our client. By default, we store data until it's explicitly removed. But we provide provisions to set up a periodic data removal process for our clients on a contract-to-contract basis. However, we always support data deletion through requests sent to for all of our clients. We delete data at the specified/ requested time by our clients with an additional grace period.
