Deletion of data

Paragraph 33 of the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism Code 2015 requires Bittylicious to store user data for at least 5 years even after accounts are marked as deleted. Following common industry practice, we retain data for 5 years from the date of deletion.

When the account is marked as deleted, we set a flag meaning the account can no longer be registered again. After 5 years, any sort of identifiable data, including uploaded data, will be automatically deleted.
