What options do I have for document retention?

Veryfi serves many different use cases and offers a range of data retention options.

Users can delete the data from the GUI Veryfi Web Portal:

  1. Users can delete the data via a DELETE API call. If needed, users can create a routine to use the DELETE API method to enforce their data retention requirements. For example, a process that uses the API GET call for all documents over one year old, then for each result calls the DELETE method.

  2. Users can use the auto_delete option. This parameter sent along with the API POST request deletes a record from Veryfi right after the document processes. In this case, we remove all information about the document as soon as we return the JSON. Please note that auto_delete disables model training for those documents. If you will need model training, we recommend you do not use auto_delete for documents that should be in scope for model training.
