The rolling deletion service allows you to configure your Onfido account to delete the applicant data automatically after the specified number of days.
Rolling deletion means that applicant data will automatically be scheduled for deletion 'X' days after the check completes and will be permanently deleted 'Y' days after this request. This will apply to all checks from all your applicants. The 'X' and 'Y' days can be configured for your Onfido account as per your business requirements.
