Contacts opting out of the Force24 and SoAmpli platforms will be pared back to the minimum amount of information needed to ensure their record always remains suppressed, even if the customer inadvertently re-purchases and/or supplies a new mailing list containing the same record information.
For legal purposes, customer information is maintained for seven years after the relationship has ended and then destroyed. For details concerning how long we store different documents please see Force24’s Data Retention Policy and the Recruitment Privacy Notice given to job applicants.
