Increasingly, new services created by the likes of Apple, Google, and others offer convenient mobile tools that help us organize our lives, from business matters to personal connections. However, those same services often require that personal data is collected, analyzed, and stored.

As a result, some groups have raised questions as to how long this private data is kept, and one of the services under review is Apple's Siri.

Amidst inquiries from the American Civil Liberties Union, an Apple spokeswoman told Wired that Apple keeps "anonymized Siri data for up to two years, [and] if a user turns Siri off, both identifiers are deleted immediately along with any associated data."
