We value your privacy, and strive to make our services safe and enjoyable to everyone. Checkvist stores only the essential personal information, required for the tool functioning. We will never, under no circumstances, sell this data to anyone.
We aggregate information about people navigating through the website pages: landing pages, time spent, page scrolling, etc. This information is anonymous, besides the country and IP address. More in the Google Analytics and HotJar sections below.
Google Analytics is not used on your account data. We track only the website landing pages navigation and the fact of a successful registration. Once you've logged in or created a Checkvist account, Google Analytics tracking is disabled completely.
We use HotJar to better understand how people interact with our services, in particular, we follow the initial experience and the onboarding process (web site pages visited or scrolled, screen resolutions and device used, user interface controls clicked, etc). For more detailed information on HotJar's privacy and security policies, please visit https://www.hotjar.com/privacy.
HotJar is not used on your account data. Once you've logged in or created a Checkvist account, HotJar tracking is disabled completely.
We do not use any tracking or monitoring tools in your account.
When you create a Checkvist account, we ask for your email address, username, and password. This data is used solely for the authentication and necessary email communication.
We do not send any marketing, customer research or advertising emails. All news and updates are distributed via in-app notifications, Checkvist blog, and social media accounts: Twitter, Google+, Facebook.
If you have checked the "Remember me" option upon log in, the cookie will be stored during a 90 day period. After that it will expire to protect you against others accidentally accessing your account contents, and you will have to log in again.
If you haven't checked the "Remember me" option, cookies will be cleared when you close your browser and next time you will have to log in again.
For a more detailed description see the Cookies page.
We require an explicit email verification for features that employ email distribution from the system (list sharing and notifications).
We use third party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology required to run Checkvist. Although we own the code, databases, and all rights to the Checkvist application, you retain all rights to your data.
All database data, including users, lists, and history, are stored on the dedicated server(s) at LeaseWeb (Netherlands).
For inactive non-PRO users, the data is removed after 1 year of inactivity (with prior two email warnings about data deletion in a case of inactivity).
For all active users, and for all paying customers, the data is stored as long as the person keeps the account in Checkvist.
File attachments and individual data backups are stored in Amazon AWS/Ireland.
Full Checkvist backups, together with database and servers, are stored in Amazon AWS/Ireland.
Personal information from payments is stored only at our payment processors, FastSpring (and PayPal, for older non-EU customers). No information about credit cards (or other means of payment) is ever transferred to Checkvist servers.
Such information as payment email address, country, and address, is stored in internal Checkvist server logs and removed within 1 month after the payment. Also it is present in the email confirmations about payments for audit purposes.
Checkvist service logs contain details about user activity and service operations. They are stored on the dedicated server(s) at LeaseWeb (Netherlands), and contain information about 1 month of activity.
Passwords are filtered out from the logs.
We do not partner or have any relationship with any online advertising companies.
We reserve the right to disclose personally identifiable information under special circumstances, such as to comply with subpoenas or when your actions violate the Terms of Service.
If you want to erase all data, associated with your Checkvist account (including payment history, email address, all list data, attachments, etc.), just log in and delete your account on the profile page. That operation can not be undone, and will permanently delete all your data, including those shared with other people.
To export your lists before deletion, use the 'Export' command in the list's toolbar or use OPML backup files (PRO feature). If you don't have a PRO account, you can request a copy of all your lists and personal data, associated with your account. Please, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll send you the file within 30 working days.
We may periodically update this policy. In this case we will notify you about significant changes in the way we treat personal information by sending a notice to the email address specified in your Checkvist account or by placing a prominent notice on our site.
