I am trying to push Trello for adoption within my organisation, but there is concern from higher up about the deletion of data.

Are cards logically deleted (ie setting deleted=true) or are they really deleted from the server?

As I understand it boards and lists can only be archived for the time being.

Cards can be archived too. This is the preferred way to handle completed cards/boards. Archived items are hidden from board view but can still be searched for and returned from the archive if desired.

When actually deleting a card the system reports "There is no undo" with this action.

Adoption by our team members (< 20 in our case) was very quick (less than a month) once we showed them all the basics.
