95/46 is the current EU Data Protection Directive - sorry policy wonk shorthand - (applicable to all EU members with slight variation due to transposition into national law). One of the main tenets of the Directive is that information may only be retained for a period of time that is relevant and appropriate to the purpose of collection.  Thus if my only reason for collecting information is to deliver a product (purpose = transaction fulfillment) my appropriate period of retention might be x days or weeks after delivery - whatever the period of time reasonable to wait for a complaint about delivery.  However most data is collected for multiple purposes with different retention periods.  There may be a warranty on the product and I maintain that information for a longer period.  There may be marketing and customer retention reasons both of which may have different reasonable period of retention.  IBM/Tivoli tried to address this variability of preferences and retention periods long ago with a preference language called EPAL.  I doubt I need to remind Danny of this :-)
