I did a small experiment and it seems that your data is permanently 
preserved in sigchains of all people that follow you. Even if you delete 
your account.

For example this is my account's sigchain:

I did create a dummy account and followed that.

The account is deleted now:

But the data still remain in API of my sigchain (grep for the username).

I did try to clarify this with Keybase people but did not get the reply 
(maybe you'd have more luck in this).

Kind regards,
