This questions covers the law and tech. If I delete my account at Facebook or any company with a website service, can I ask to be provided proof of data having been deleted in some form provided by the company?
Could I send a letter asking for some official receipt of data deletion.
Any suggestions for going about such a request? Read the TOS/EULA I suppose?
I've worked in IT, there are many logs and databases where data could just sit around. Typically accounts would be removed after 30 days or so.
Is there any legal standing to ask for proof?
Or is this all new and uncharted areas of tech and law?
