Clearing personal data from inactive accounts ∙ #privacy

Freek wrote about cleaning up inactive user data from Oh Dear:

You want to keep only as little personal data as needed for privacy reasons. You should only collect and keep the absolute minimum of data needed to run your application. This keeps your user’s privacy safe and minimizes the risks for you as a company if a security breach happens.

This is a really good initiative, I can’t even imagine how much data I have scattered across hundreds of trial accounts on the internet…
