One thing to remember

The Data Protection Act is not the only law on the statute book. This may come as a surprise to some people, but it is true, there are other laws.

So, while the Data Protection Act might be silent on deleting data you need to carry out your activities, you need to consider whether or not there are any other laws that stop you doing this.
