GDPR gives you the right to be forgotten, officially known as the right to erasure. It’s not as intense as it sounds – it just means you can ask companies to delete any information they store about you.
So if you want to be forgotten or erased, you just have to ask! We’ll delete all the information we keep about you, with the exception of anything required to comply with the law. One example of this is invoices – these have to be kept for at least four years by law.
We’ve made it easier for you to delete your account, and all the information connected with it. This includes typeforms and workspaces you’ve created, as well as results collected by your typeforms.
Once you confirm that you want to delete your account, we’ll remove/anonymize all the information we have about you. We’ll also delete your information from all our activity logs and data stored in third-party systems. Although the data will be deleted from all ‘live’ systems immediately, please note that the deletion of the information from backup systems can take around 30 days (but the information erased will not be processed nor accessed by anyone).
How to Delete your Typeform account
You can delete your account by going to your Account settings. There are two ways to get there:
- Click here while logged into your account
- Click on the icon in the upper right corner of your Workspace and select My Account:
Once you’re there, scroll down to Danger Zone and click Delete my account. The following pop-up message will appear:
Click Delete my account & data to open a new pop-up window, where you can confirm the deletion by entering your password:
Doing this will permanently delete your account and all related data from our systems as explained above.
If you want to export your response data or typeforms before deleting your account, follow the steps in this article.
If you’ve submitted responses to a typeform, the creator of that typeform is responsible for this data. This means that you have to contact them to exercise your data subject rights. Find out more here.
If you have any other concerns or questions regarding the right to be forgotten, please contact us and our Support team will be happy to help! If you’ve submitted responses to one of the typeforms created by our company (for example if you’ve applied for a job with us!), and want us to delete that information: get in touch.
