3 years ago I visited New York, when I got there immigration scanned my fingerprints and I think a copy of my passport was recorded as well. How long does this data stay on record for? I am an E.U. citizen, since I found out about the GDPR I have become more privacy conscience. I have deleted my facebook, instagram, snapchat, paypal, outlook, gmail (yes I had a lot) I avoid as much contact with google as I can and only use Protonmail instead.
Alternatively to google.com and chrome I use DDG and brave browser with my VPN always on and now I want to delete myself from the DHS system.
I want to know that my data is safe from the government and others including keeping my identity private. Is there a period on how long they can keep this information for?
