Purging messages, images and other data

One of the ways we do this is by clearing our (deleting) old information and data much as images sent in messages and the messages themselves.

There are no hard and fast rules here as most depend on the size of the data base at the time. Below are some rough guides:

CCD Instant Messenger

Images attached to messages are usually removed after 30 days.
Read messages after two weeks.
Unread messages after four weeks.

The main CCD Platform

Images attached to messages are deleted usually after around 90 days.
Messages after 90 days.
Visitor lists are usually deleted after 180 days.
Friends lists usually after 10 years.
Notifications usually 30 days.
Unverified accounts after 14 days.
