I have a commercial web startup. From a legal standpoint does maintaining users record (database info) if they decide to delete their account outweighs deleting their record?
- Maintaining the users record, even if they delete their account, can protect users and myself, from legal issues by having solid evidence.
- Deleting a account, can save some server space and prevent users from claiming that there is a privacy/respect issue.
What can be done to prevent users discomfort and always have a legal backup?
