What happens to deleted responses?

When you click delete, responses will be removed from our databases without the ability to restore it*.

The respective files (uploaded documents, cropped images of responses) will be scheduled for automatic removal, which should complete within several hours.

Your responses will be kept in our backup systems for up to three months until they are completely removed.
