At Ideanote we value the privacy and rights of our community. Read our most recent terms below.
Last updated May 25, 2018
This is a legally binding agreement (“Terms”) governing Your (“You”, “Your”) 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 Rigensgade 5, DK-1316, Copenhagen, 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 Terms (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 Terms. If You do not agree or comply with these Terms, You must not accept them and must not start or continue to use Ideanote.
We reserve the right to adjust and change these Terms of Service 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 that You are a human (not a bot) and at least 18 years old. You also warrant that You have sufficient capacity to enter into legally binding contracts and that You do not break any laws or regulations by entering into 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 “Space”) identified with an URL (e.g. unicorn.ideanote.io) and a name (e.g. Unicorn Inc). Spaces allow groups of participants who have a common interest or affiliation to share Content and collaborate.
You might access Ideanote Spaces 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 Space may contain Content not suitable for You. You can always choose to stop visiting a Space if You find it to be unsuitable in any way.
Ideanote might provide You with the ability to create and/or maintain a Space. Every such Space has one specific Member with more access and editing rights as well as overall responsibility, referred to as the “Owner Account” or “Owner”. When registering a Space, You will be made a Member of the Space and assigned to be the Owner Account. At any point in time there is one Owner Account on every Space.
At the same time, every Space has one person or entity that is responsible for the activity on that Space, known as the “Customer”. You acknowledge and agree that by becoming a Member of a Space You can be assigned or have preassigned the role of an Owner Account and can be made responsible as a Customer.
In using Our Service it may be possible for You to share invitation links, inviting people by email or in other ways make the Space available to more people. By sharing these invitation links or inviting people, or in other ways making it possible for people to join a Space, You accept that You can be held responsible for their conduct and the Content posted by them. You accept that You are responsible for keeping people that you allow access to the Space aware of their rights and these Terms of Service, as well as ensuring the legality and lawfulness of them using the Service.
Ideanote reserves the right to use know-how, people or technology provided by a third-party to deliver parts of the Service under these Terms. This may include but is not limited to for example third-party payment processors, email infrastructure providers and/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 Terms.
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 Spaces with third-party services. If You choose to connect Content, Accounts or Spaces 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 Spaces. Please be advised that third-party Services might have their own terms and policies that govern Your rights and conduct.

As a company, Amazon Cloud Services has certified with the Department of Commerce that it adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles under the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield frameworks. 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 your 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.
The Services may be provided using equipment or facilities located in the European Union or the United States.

By agreeing to these Terms, You grant Ideanote a general authorization in the meaning of Article 28 (2) of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 to engage “Processors” for the purposes of providing the Services. We will inform You of changes in such processors in accordance with the procedure of modifying these Terms.

These Terms 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.

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.

You are aware that by submitting Content to Ideanote You might be sharing it with other people. You are also aware that other people might choose to share, edit, make available to third-parties or otherwise take action on Content You submit to Ideanote.
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 the Service 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 Space on invitation by a Member of a Space 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 monitor individual Spaces, Member, activity and Content.
We will only investigate individual the Content of Members or Spaces to determine if people comply with these Terms (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 Terms and to investigate Content to determine compliance with these Terms and any operating rules established by Ideanote to satisfy any law, regulation or valid authorized government request

The remaining provisions of these Terms shall remain in full effect.
Without foregoing the above general statement, We want to make clear that some consumer protection laws or other legislation in Your jurisdiction may not allow certain limitations of liability, warranty restrictions and/or billing policies in these Terms. In the case that any limitation of liability, warranty restriction and/or billing policy is specifically prohibited by applicable law, such limitation of liability, warranty restriction and/or billing policy may not apply to You. In that case We kindly ask You to inform Us in advance, if You want to make use of a certain government regulation or provision that You see in conflict with these Terms.
If Ideanote does not explicitly exercise a particular right under these Terms, that does not waive them.
These Terms (including all documents included by reference into them) are the whole agreement between You and Us concerning Our Service.
We might choose to run contests, promotions or marketing campaigns through our Service that may be governed by a separate set of Terms and Conditions. If You choose to participate in any such contests, promotions or marketing campaigns please review the conditions that apply to them as they might conflict and override these Terms. Likewise, by accepting a sales offer that specifies or extends this agreement, additional conditions and policies might apply.
These Terms shall be governed by the substantive laws of Denmark without regard to conflict of laws principles. You hereby expressly agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction on Denmark, for the purpose of resolving any dispute relating to these Terms or access to or use of the Service.

The terms and conditions below (“Customer Agreement”) supplement and amend the Terms of Service, available at https://ideanote.io/terms. If there is any conflict between the Customer Agreement and the Terms of Service, the applicable terms in the Customer Agreement will prevail. Capitalized expressions not defined in the Customer Agreement have the meaning set out in the Terms of Service.
If a Space 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 Space is personally responsible for the activity on the Space. In this case the Owner Account on the Space is considered to be the Customer and is also referred to as a “Personal Customer”.
If a Space is registered from an Account with a business email and/or for a company, business, organization, brand or similar, the Owner Account of the Space agrees to these Terms 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”.
A Customer is solely responsible for what happens with his Space he or she owns on the Service. As a Customer (having control of the Owner Account) it might, for example, be possible to enable, disable or otherwise change settings, options, access and editing right, roles of Members and properties of the Space, invite people, share access, add third-party integrations and much more. A Customer is responsible for causing wanted or unwanted use, disclosure, loss, modification or deletion of any Content, Accounts or Spaces for Spaces he or she is a Customer on.
The Customer on a Space is considered an intermediary with the obligation to regulate actions and Content of Accounts with access to the Space. The Customer on a Space is at all times entirely liable for all acts and omissions by people that he or she actively or passively allows to access the Space.
Unless explicitly authorized in writing by the other Party, neither Party shall disclose to any third Party any confidential Information of the other Party, nor use such Confidential Information in any manner other than to perform its obligations under these Terms. Confidential Information within the context of these Terms means any non-public information and/or materials that can reasonably be understood to be confidential and is provided by a Party under these Terms to the other Party. For example, a good indicator that material is considered confidential is if the word Confidential is featured prominently in the header or footer. This does not cover how we handle Content on our Service.
The foregoing restrictions do not apply to any information that is publicly disclosed through no fault of the receiving Party, is already lawfully in the receiving Party’s possession and not subject to a confidentiality obligation to the disclosing Party, becomes known to the receiving Party from a third party having an apparent bona fide right to disclose the information, or is confidential Information that the receiving Party is obligated to produce pursuant to an order of a court of competent jurisdiction or a valid administrative subpoena, provided the receiving Party supplies the disclosing Party with timely notice of such court order or subpoena.
We are proud of all our Customers. We reserve the right to showcase the name and logo of any Customer in lists, online or any promotional material as well as verbally refer to them as Customer. If You would like Us to cease using Your logo and name please contact Us at email@example.com. Ideanote reserves the right to contact You to ask You for quotes and/or to participate in the writing of a Customer Case outlining the results of using the Service to be published and disseminated.
Some of our Services are billed on a subscription basis (fittingly called “Subscription” and “Subscriptions”).
You agree to pay for Subscriptions that You purchase or use, according to the pricing and payment terms presented to You on an order form, on our Service, or in, in special circumstances, on a Subscription offer sent by one of Our employees (an “Offer”).
You can choose to pay for a Subscription either on a monthly basis (“Monthly Billing”) or on a yearly basis (“Yearly Billing”). This “Billing Cycle” governs the length of the “Billing Period”, the time for which a Subscription is paid.
A Billing Period is entered when a Subscription begins or is modified or when You change Your Billing Cycle. The day a Billing Period commences is called the “Start Date” of a Billing Period. The “End Date” of a Billing Period depends on the Billing Cycle.
With Monthly Billing, the End Date of a Billing Period is on, or close to the same date the next month. For example, if You are paying with Monthly Billing and You start a Subscription on the 15th of October, You will have the 15th of November as the End Date for the Billing Period.
With Yearly Billing, the End Date of a Billing Period is on, or close to the same date the next year. For example, if You are paying with Yearly Billing, starting a Subscription on the 15th of October will have the 15th of October in the next Year as the End Date for the Billing Period.
In the case that the Start Date is close to the end of the Month, You can experience that the End Date over time will shift back some days to stay within the Month. For example, a Customer with Monthly Billing entering a Billing Period with a Start Date on October 31 will have a corresponding End Date on November 30. The End Date will not automatically shift forward again in longer months.
You hereby agree to automatic renewal of Subscriptions. This means that any Subscription You purchase will renew at the end of its Billing Period, unless You cancel it before. That is why they are called Subscriptions.
By registering a credit card with Ideanote, You hereby agree to recurring billing. You authorized Us (or a designated third-party provider) to bill and automatically charge Your Credit Card on the (or close to the) same date every Billing Period, starting from the time a Subscription is bought or updated or You change Your Billing Cycle. What You are paying for depends on Your choice of Subscription and can be seen at checkout, on Our pricing page at https://ideanote.io/pricing or specified in an Offer.
Please be aware that the price of a Subscription might depend on certain usage parameters, for example the number of ideas collected on a Space. You hereby accept that any changes affecting a Subscription during a Billing Period (e.g upgrades, downgrades, additional or canceled subscriptions, additional usage, fees) are automatically reflected in the next bill sent to You.
Payments for Subscriptions must always be made in advance and payment is due immediately when Subscribing and will be considered unpaid if it remains unpaid (7) days past the invoice date. In special circumstances, other methods of payments (e.g. a bank transfer) might be requested by Ideanote. Costs of Subscriptions may include fees for payment card processing of up to 4% of a Subscription price. What the Customer is paying for depends on his or her choice of Subscription and can be seen at the checkout date.
Ideanote Subscriptions are pre-paid and non-refundable. Ideanote does in general not provide refunds or exchange for any partial time of use of its Service, any remaining Credits, data or Content except when required by law or explicitly stated in an Offer. In the event that the credit card registered with Ideanote is invalid for payment for any reason, or an invoice has otherwise been left unpaid then the Customer will remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. In case of non-payment, we reserve the right to apply a monthly late fee of up to 2% of the outstanding amount.
To comply with Danish consumer protection laws, we only allow Yearly Billing if the total yearly billed amount is clearly below the equivalent of 20.000 DKK (around 3000 USD) and/or if You are registered with a valid VAT ID in the billing details.
All prices might be stated exclusive of taxes (VAT or otherwise), which may or may not be added to the price, depending on applicable law and Your legal residence. If You are registered with official residence outside of the EU, You will not be charged VAT for our Service. If You are registered with official residence in the EU, but have not registered a valid European VAT ID, You will be charged the applicable VAT rate of the EU country You are registered in. If You register payment information for a valid non-Danish EU company with a valid EU VAT ID, You will not be charged VAT from Us, but reverse charge rules apply. If You register billing information representing a valid Danish company with a valid Danish VAT, You will be charged Danish VAT on the Subscription. You are responsible for paying any applicable taxes or fees.
From time to time we might give insight into when and which new features on Our Service are expected to be available. Buying decisions should not depend on this information, as we cannot guarantee them. We reserve the right to adjust the prices, fees, functionality, and usage limits or other limitations for the Service and Subscriptions from time to time. Adjusted prices for active Subscriptions shall take effect earliest upon Your subsequent Billing Period of the Service following the date of the price change.
You might change Your Subscription or the way You Pay, entering a new Billing Period while already in a Billing Period. If You change or add a Subscription or change your Billing Cycle in a way that results in Us billing You more, You automatically enter a new Billing Period and a calculation process called “Proration” takes place.
Proration occurs for example if an existing Subscription is upgraded to a more expensive one, if You add an additional Subscription to Your Subscriptions, if a Subscription exceeds the usage limit, or if You change Your Billing Cycle from Monthly Billing to Yearly Billing. To be clear, Proration can never lead to Us paying out any amounts to You.
Proration means that We will calculate how much of the current Billing Period You have already used on a day-by-day basis, calling the remaining unused but paid for amount the “Prorated Amount” and subtracting it from Your new Invoice as a discount. For example, You are paying for one Subscription with Monthly Billing in a Billing Period with Start Date on November 15 and End Date on December 15. If it is December 10 and You add an additional Subscription, the Prorated Amount is the amount corresponding to the remaining 5 out of 30 days of use. You will enter a new Billing Period with Start Date on December 10 and You will be issued a new invoice based on the two combined Subscriptions, minus the Prorated Amount.
Ideanote may offer limited-time access to paid Subscriptions (referred to as “Trials”). When using a Trial, You are granted access to the features of a given Subscription on a Space for a limited amount of time (the “Trial Period”), disclosed at the outset of the Trial.
If You have already registered payment information on the relevant Account or Space, the Trial will automatically turn into a paid Subscription with Monthly Billing at the end of the Trial period, if it is not canceled before.
You may have the possibility to acquire virtual currency (“Credit”) for Your Account or for a Space for certain actions You or third-parties perform. These actions may be, but are not limited to, signing up, referring people to use Ideanote, reaching an activity milestone or completing a survey.
Although the Credit may be visualized in USD or other currencies, this Credit is no legal tender, does not hold inherent value and cannot be refunded, transferred or exchanged for cash, goods or services. It can and may not be traded, sold, bought or exchanged with third parties. However, Credit You have earned can and will automatically be used to reduce the amount to be paid on bills for Your Subscriptions. In doing so, Credit is used up.
We reserve the right to allow for or stop ways to receive or use Credit at Our discretion. Any given Space can only accumulate Credit of up to a virtual equivalent of 300 USD. We reserve the right to remove any Credit after 3 months without use.
As a Customer, if You wish to cancel a Subscription, You may do so via the billing page in the settings or by contacting us directly. You may cancel a Monthly Subscription at any time and a Yearly Subscription at any time up to 30 days in advance of the end of the Billing Period. Access to the additional features or limits of the Subscription will stay accessible until the end of the Billing Period. At any point in time, only the Owner Account of a Space can set in motion the start, end or change of a Subscription his or her Space.
If You successfully cancel or otherwise terminate a Subscription in a Billing Period, You will not have to pay for the next upcoming Billing Period. For example, if You are paying with Monthly Billing from 14th to 14th of each month and terminate the Subscription on the 13th of one month You will not be billed on the 14th of that month for the next Billing Period.
In case of non-payment for any reason or any violation of these Terms and Conditions, Ideanote shall be entitled - without liability - to immediately bar access to the Service and/or parts of the Service and/or bar access to paid Subscriptions, and/or to terminate a Space You are in control of. In practice, Ideanote will make reasonable efforts to inform You of unsuccessful, invalid or missing payments before taking such steps.
Should an Account or Space be terminated, You agree and acknowledge that Ideanote has no obligation to retain Content and that such Data may be irretrievably deleted if the deleted account was removed longer than 30 days prior to the request for renewed access.
You agree and acknowledge that Ideanote has no obligation to retain the Content on a Space, and may delete such Content without prior notice, if the Customer has materially breached these Terms, including but not limited to failure to pay outstanding fees, and such breach has not been cured within twenty (20) days of notice of such breach; or upon termination of these Terms for any reason.
As a Customer, it is Your responsibility to keep the contact and payment information for the Space current. If We have reasonable grounds to suspect that information You provided for an Account or a Space is untrue, incomplete, not up to date or otherwise misrepresenting or deceiving, We reserve the right to suspend or permanently terminate Your Account, Your use of the Service or parts of the Service and/or access to any Space You are a Customer for.

Learn how Ideanote is complying with the General Data Protection Regulation.
At Ideanote, We put Your security and privacy front and center in everything We do. Our Services are used and trusted by dozens of Companies, and they are for a reason: At Ideanote, we put all of Our efforts into doing one thing really well - making Your innovation process useful. Our success simply depends on it. We present the same Services to all of our Customers, so You can expect stability, transparency, and professionalism. We know what we’re doing, but better yet, We are always improving. We simply can’t help it.
Ideanote isn’t itself SOC2 compliant, but our datacenter provider is. To review their report, please contact Us and we’ll work with You. Including contact information and the reason for the request (for example, a requirement of a certification process) will speed things up.
Absolutely. Everything You send to Us, and everything We Send to You are sent through fully encrypted channels. We employ the Transport Layer Security protocol with RSA-2048 encryption to keep our communication private. In the database, We encrypt non-searchable content such as passwords, but do not encrypt your content otherwise.
We run regular security scans via a third-party service, and Our source code is automatically checked as it’s committed. Every time we update any of our external code dependencies, we perform a full security audit to verify that no vulnerabilities have entered our code base. We also subscribe to various security mailing lists for the software we use. The latter ensures we’re always aware of recently discovered vulnerabilities and can either put workarounds in place or apply patches if available.
Access to the datastore is restricted to a very small number of people, and there’s no way for Us to “impersonate” or view Content via an account switcher interface or see it through the admin UI. In cases where we need to troubleshoot errors purposes, we’ll either test it in a development environment or get your explicit permission for account access (generally by having you manually invite Our support account as a member of your account, which can be removed at any time) or by requesting screen sharing. Access and access requests to Our databases and server infrastructure and all code change commits are logged for security purposes.
As outlined in our Terms of Service, customer support staff have access to certain contact information and activity logs by default to be able to service you as best as possible. Access to this kind of data is restricted with two-factor authentication at all times and the data is not sold to or shared with third parties other than the data processors named in the Terms of Service.
In short: yes. At Ideanote, we have always taken care of your data with the seriousness it deserves. We have revised our internal processes, security, and terms & privacy documents to ensure that we are fully compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is the name of the European Union (EU)’s new personal data law, which takes effect by the 25th of May 2018. The purpose of GDPR is to protect EU citizens from abuse of their personal data.
Ideanote was designed from the very beginning by these principles, even before the EU made it into law.
Ideanote is designed to only allow users to access data on a need-to-know basis. Likewise, only personal data which are necessary for each specific purpose of the processing are processed between servers, computer and employee app.
Ideanote has looked at every product and implemented processes and procedures designed to meet the obligations outlined in GDPR. Ideanote is confident the steps taken adequately address the GDPR requirements and provides us the ability to satisfy data subject right requests.

With Ideanote, deleting a Member on a Space will permanently delete all data related to that individual on our database.

You can export out all the content on your Ideanote account. You can always contact our chat support if you need any help. Else, you can write to us at hello@Ideanote.io and our support team will reach out to you within 72 hours.
“Under the GDPR, breach notification will become mandatory in all member states where a data breach is likely to “result in a risk for the rights and freedoms of individuals”. This must be done within 72 hours of first having become aware of the breach. Data processors will also be required to notify their customers, the controllers, “without undue delay” after first becoming aware of a data breach.
We thoroughly reviewed our data security, made sure that we have complete data encryption for both in-motion and at-rest data. And, also created a policy around Breach notification to inform our customers within 72 hours of first having become aware of the breach.
The Service is hosted in the United States or Germany. Regardless of the database being hosted in the European Union, if you choose to use the Service from the EU or other regions of the world with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from US law, then please note that you may be transferring your Client Data and Personal Data outside of those regions to the United States for storage and processing by our service providers listed in the our Terms of Service. We will comply with GDPR requirements providing adequate protection for the transfer of personal information from Europe to the US. Also, we may transfer your data to the US, the EEA, or other countries or regions deemed by the European Commission to provide adequate protection of personal data in connection with storage and processing of data, fulfilling your requests, and operating the Service.
Ideanotel does not own, control or direct the use of any of the Client Data stored or processed by a Client or User via the Service. Only the Client or Users are entitled to access, retrieve and direct the use of such Client Data. Ideanote is largely unaware of what Client Data is actually being stored or made available by a Client or User to the Service and does not directly access such Client Data except as authorized by the Client, or as necessary to provide Services to the Client and its Users.
The Client or the User is the data controller under the Regulation for any Client Data containing Personal Data, meaning that such party controls the manner such Personal Data is collected and used as well as the determination of the purposes and means of the processing of such Personal Data.
Ideanote is not responsible for the content of the Personal Data contained in the Client Data or other information stored on its servers (or its subcontractors’ servers) at the discretion of the Client or User nor is Ideanote responsible for the manner in which the Client or User collects, handles disclosure, distributes or otherwise processes such information.
We only retain the Personal Data collected from a User for as long as the User’s account is active or otherwise for a limited period of time as long as we need it to fulfill the purposes for which we have initially collected it, unless otherwise required by law. We will retain and use information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements as follows:
-the contents of closed accounts are deleted within 6 months of the date of closure
-backups are kept for 12 months.
-information on legal transactions between Client and Ideanote is retained for a period of 10 years.
We hope this makes your use of Ideanote and the transition to GDPR much easier. As always, please contact us if you have any questions: legal@Ideanote.io
