How long are files available when shared via HipChat ?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Share files

When sharing files via Hipchat, they are stored on Amazon S3 (with public links !) How long are those files stored ? Is there a way to delete them on Amazon servers ?

We don't intentionally throw any files away in HipChat. You can delete them though:

The eventual goal is to move files to a secure place within the group and then give users a simple way to share that file out if they choose (as opposed to what we do today where the file is public by default).
