As you might have seen, we have recently updated our security and data protection terms and included them in our Terms of Services. The updated terms include a detailed description of the security controls used across Citrix’s services, as well as data processing terms that align to the applicable sections of the GDPR.
Additionally, we have the following updates available -
We have a new profile deletion tool available for customers who require this. This can be used to remove profile information from a user who no longer wish to have personal information displayed on Podio (and for some reason don't have access to their email account to login and update the information on their own).
Before making use of this tool, we recommend customers to offer guidelines to their employees and invited clients on how to manually update and control their profile information and account settings. This functionality is fully in the individual users own control.
Read more about the new tool here.
Overall, we enable users and customers to erase their information from Podio following these guidelines. In order to manually update and delete profile information, the individual user should update their profile to remove any information and delete their account. By default, we save history and information created by the user in the workspaces for the business owner or organisation admin to determine what data will be required for future business operations.
We will be enforcing a more strict policy around data retention in the future, and we want to ensure you are all in the loop for this upcoming change. In the future we will be retaining data for inactive free accounts for 13 months.
Therefore, we will soon be communicating to all inactive free user accounts that have not logged in to Podio account for more than 13 months. The users in an inactive state will have 30 days to activate their Podio account (login required) before their data and account will be deleted.
We will be sending email notifications to individual user accounts prior to deletion to ensure everyone will have a chance to login and activate the account prior to deleting data.
