See the steps we ensure your privacy and protection with Ideanote
This is a legally binding agreement (“ToS”) governing Your (“You”, “Your”, "User") access and use of our sites, mobile apps, products and services (collectively the “Service”) and all data, files, content or material uploaded, downloaded, produced, viewed or otherwise accessed through our Service (collectively the “Content”).
The Service is provided by Ideanote ApS, with offices at Søengen 1, DK-2840, Holte, Denmark, registered at the Danish business authority with VAT ID 36896183 - in short referred to as “Ideanote”, “Us”, or “We”. Together You and Ideanote make out the “Parties” of these ToS (individually the “Party”). By visiting one of our websites or otherwise making use of parts of Our Service, You are considered a “User” of our Services.
By using Ideanote, you agree to these ToS. If You do not agree or comply with these ToS, You must not accept them and must not start or continue to use Ideanote.
We reserve the right to adjust and change these ToS and any documents included by reference at any time. If a change is material we will let you know in advance. By continuing to use Ideanote after the effective date, you agree to the new version.
Ideanote will provide You with the ability to create and maintain a username, email, and password for accessing the Service (an Ideanote “Account”). By accessing an Ideanote Account, You agree to provide true, accurate, and complete information during registration and to update Your information during use to keep it current.
By accessing Ideanote through an Account, you warrant (i) that you are 13 years of age or older, (ii) if you are the age of majority in your jurisdiction or over, that you have read, understood, and accept to be bound by the Terms, and (iii) if you are between 13 and the age of majority in your jurisdiction, that your legal guardian has reviewed and agrees to these Terms.
As Your email and password are personal and considered to be confidential information You are at all times entirely liable for all acts and omissions by the people You have allowed to access the platform through Your Account. You are responsible for keeping Your Ideanote Account safe and secure from unauthorized access and must notify Us promptly of any unauthorized use or security breach to Your Account.
The Service might allow You to access a registered subdomain (a “Workspace”) identified with an URL (e.g. unicorn.ideanote.io) and a name (e.g. Unicorn Inc). Workspaces allow groups of participants who have a common interest or affiliation to share Content and collaborate.
You might access Ideanote Workspaces by logging in to or creating an Account (in which case You are referred to as a “Member”) or without logging in to or creating an Account for the Service (in which case You are referred to as a “Visitor”) .
Any Workspace may contain Content not suitable for You. You can always choose to stop visiting a Workspace if You find it to be unsuitable in any way.
Ideanote might provide You with the ability to create and/or maintain a Workspace. Every such Workspace has one specific Member with more access and editing rights as well as overall responsibility, referred to in the ToS as the “Primary Owner Account”, “Primary Owner” or “Owner”. When registering a Workspace, You will be made a Member of the Workspace and assigned to be the Primary Owner Account. At any point in time there is one Primary Owner Account on every Workspace.
At the same time, every Workspace has one person or entity that is responsible for the activity on that Workspace, known as the “Customer”. You acknowledge and agree that by becoming a Member of a Workspace You can be assigned or have preassigned the role of an Owner Account and can be made responsible as a Customer.
If a Workspace is registered through an Account with a personal email and/or is registered for a personal cause that is not affiliated with a business, organization, brand or another entity, the Owner Account of the Workspace is personally responsible for the activity on the Workspace. In this case the Owner Account on the Workspace is considered to be the Customer and is also referred to as a “Personal Customer”.
If a Workspace is registered from an Account with a business email and/or for a company, business, organization, brand or similar, the Owner Account of the Workspace agrees to these ToS on behalf of the entity and acts as a representative for the entity. In this case the entity is considered to be the Customer and is also referred to as a “Business Customer”.
Ideanote reserves the right to use know-how, people or technology provided by a third-party to deliver parts of the Service under these ToS. This may include but is not limited to for example third-party payment processors, email infrastructure providers or User authentication. Please be advised that third-party Services might have their own terms and policies that govern Your conduct through terms, conditions and privacy policies in addition to these ToS. When working with third-party providers we only use established and industry leading service providers with good practices. We make sure we have written agreements that bind all third party Services used in Our Service to comply with data protection obligations not less protective than those in our Agreements.
Our Service may include links to websites and Content maintained by third-parties. Ideanote is not responsible and is not liable for any connection to or reliance on Content of third-party websites or services. Our links to third-party websites or Content do not imply that We support, promote, guarantee or recommend any such Content or website, their views or their authors or owners.
In using our Service it may be possible for You to connect Content, Accounts or Workspaces with third-party services. If You choose to connect Content, Accounts or Workspaces on the Service with a third-party service (e.g. through an API, Webhook, Authentication, SSO or similar integration) You are responsible for what these third-party services do with this Content, including wanted or unwanted use, disclosure, loss, modification or deletion of any or all such Content, Accounts or Workspaces. Please be advised that third-party Services might have their own terms and policies that govern Your rights and conduct.
If You are an individual located in the European Economic Area, the United Kingdom, Canada or another jurisdiction outside of the United States with laws and regulations governing personal data collection, use, and disclosure that differ from United States laws, please be aware that information we collect (including through the use of methods such as cookies and other web technologies) might be processed and stored in the United States or in other countries where we or our third-party services providers have operations.
By submitting personal information to Ideanote and using Ideanote, You expressly consent to having Your personal data transferred to, processed, and stored in the United States or another jurisdiction which may not offer the same level of privacy protection as those in the country where You reside or are a citizen.
We may, at our sole discretion, from time to time allow You to upload, store, share, send or otherwise make available Content through our Service - for example by submitting a comment, creating an idea or uploading a file attachment.
Content that You upload, store, share or send through our Service remains Your, or the original owner’s, intellectual property. Ideanote does not receive ownership of any Content You or others submit to the Service in the course of using the Service. These ToS do not give us any rights to Your Content apart from the limited rights that enable us to run and improve our Service that are described in the following sections about Content on the Service.
We are not liable or responsible for any actions You take with Your or other Content in connection with the Service. Ideanote does not generally monitor Workspaces to review Content posted in them and is not responsible for any such Content.
By submitting Content to the Service You warrant that (i) You have the necessary ownership rights, licenses and consent to grant us the necessary rights to run and improve Our Service (ii) the Content itself, Your action of uploading, posting, communicating or otherwise making it available via the Service is in no way infringing or violating a third-party’s rights in any way and does not result in the violation of any law or regulation.
You acknowledge that You have sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability, appropriateness, and intellectual property ownership or right to use any and all Content that You submit. Furthermore, You are fully liable if such Content is infringing upon third-party rights, and accordingly agree to indemnify Ideanote for all claims and losses related to such infringement and/or illegality.
You are aware that by submitting Content to Ideanote You might be sharing it with other people. You are also aware that other Users on the Workspace with access to your content might choose to share, edit, make available to third-parties or otherwise take action on Content You submit to Ideanote.
Ideanote allows You to upload, submit, store, send and receive Content. You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that You hold in that Content. In short, what belongs to You stays Yours. But, to be able to serve the Content and to run the Service, we reserve a set of standardized rights.
You give Us the worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive, perpetual right to store, display, modify, edit, send, delete, scan, analyze, track, repackage and reproduce Your Content to the extent necessary to provide our Service - without further notice or consent from You. This right extends to partners and third-party services that we work together with to allow for a smooth operation of the Service. This allows the Service, for example, to display Your idea to other people after You have posted it, to crop an image or to export an idea to a connected task management platform.
You consent that Ideanote employees can use Your activities and Content on an anonymized and aggregated level to continuously optimize the performance and presentation of the Service. We reserve the right to publish our findings on an anonymized aggregate level. An example of an anonymized finding would be study of how many people, in general, comment on an idea they have also liked.
We also retain the right, but not the obligation, to directly access Your account data or a Workspace on invitation by a Member of a Workspace for purposes of technical maintenance, content oversight or investigation as well as general Customer support.
Any feedback or circumstantial analytical evidence knowingly given or unknowingly resulting from usage of using our Service can freely be exploited and shared by Us to improve Our Service or technology without this resulting in You having or receiving any rights or ownership of them.
Protecting Your Content is a top-priority for Us. While we do try to minimize access to your Content in general We retain the right, but not the obligation, to generally monitor individual Workspaces, Member, activity and Content.
We will only investigate individual the Content of Members or Workspaces to determine if people comply with these ToS (especially our Community Policy) or to satisfy any law, regulation or valid authorized government request. Activity is monitored and analysed more frequently and can be used to improve Our Service, including Customer Support.
Ideanote and its Employees shall retain the right, but not the obligation, to generally monitor and observe Your activities on Our Service to determine compliance with these ToS and to investigate Content to determine compliance with these ToS and any operating rules established by Ideanote to satisfy any law, regulation or valid authorized government request
