Permanent deletion of an entry

There are several reasons you may need to permanently delete an entry:

  • The entry was created by mistake, or as a practice run / example
  • Your organisation has a policy of not retaining historic / archived data online
  • To avoid unnecessary retention of data that is no longer needed— this may be the case for example under EU General Data ProtectionRegulation (GDPR), if your entries / applications collect personal data. You should obtain your own legal advice in this case.
Note: only an account's owner can permanently delete an entry unless a user profile is being deleted with the entries along with them. To learn more about deleting data, check out our guide: Deleting your program's personally identifiable information (PII).
