Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

When we delete users data, we shouldn't retain it all corresponding to a user ID, but we do want to keep aggregate data for our metrics.

So we want to start tracking broad metrics (i.e. total accounts distributed per partner) that are updated when required, rather than calculating those totals every time a page displaying them is loaded. This way it doesn't matter if we delete someone's data - we just don't update those numbers if we do so.
