Customer Data Retention Policy

The policy for how long Alert Logic maintains customer data in its systems before deletion varies according to data type. The schedule also depends on whether a customer still has an active account with Alert Logic or has ceased to have an active account. The policy is subject to individually contracted arrangements governing retention of a customer's data that has been negotiated with Alert Logic.
