The e-mail address is the only piece of person-related information stored by the TYGS. All data associated with a TYGS job, including the e-mail address, are deleted after the job has finished and an additional amount of time has passed. The exact time of deletion is indicated in the notification e-mail and in the information badges in the top-right corner of the TYGS result page.
