Suppressing data removes all records identified as a goneaway or a mover from your data. Whereas flagging will not remove the data and update record with flag; for example if we identify the record as a goneaway we will mark it as “GA”.

Suppress is usually used from one-off mail shots to reduce the cost of your mailing. It is the most cost effective way to remove the records but is only a one off and does not allow you to understand your data better.

As best practice we suggest Flagging. Flagging allows you to use the results again and again, and increase your return on investment. Many customers create a goneaway file that they can periodically check against our movers service to update information and re-engage with lost customers.

If you purchase data it is stored for 90 days before deletion from our servers. However, if you want it for longer, that's not a problem, just change the setting to however long you want it saved for.
