How to delete uploaded files upon session expiry?

A form I have implemented uses UploadField to upload files.

For a couple of reasons (saving space, not wanting File table to get unnecessarily cluttered, security & privacy) I immediately delete the files upon form submission.

I also want to ensure that if the user has uploaded files but doesn't complete the submission, that these files will be deleted after a timeout or upon session expiry. How would I go about implementing this please?

Thank you.
