In addition, you can request that your data be deleted, but only insofar as UU can still fulfil its legal obligations, such as the legal retention periods. Please note that it may be necessary to provide a copy of an identification document in order to verify your identity.

Making a secure copy of your ID is easy with the government's 'Copy ID' app, which you can download from the app store.
