Your initial rule conditions

  1. get a new rule set up and set the initial condition to be “After deleting content”
  2. Set the next condition to be “content has type”
  3. Select the signup type of content
  4. Lastly choose to send an email to an arbitrary email address – in this case let’s say it’s you, the webmaster
  5. Send the email.  Thanks to the Tokens module you can reference content from the fields in the deleted content
