Help / Privacy and security

What do you do with my personal information?

We take your privacy seriously. We ask for only the information that’s required for us to create a great experience on our website, and we absolutely never share that information with outside parties of any kind. We encrypt sensitive information like passwords so that even our own staff is not able to pry through our database to garner personal information. For more information, read our privacy policy.

How secure is my project information and data?

Everything you create on QuirkTools is stored securely in the cloud. We make regular backups of your data, and it’s spread across numerous data centers around the world. Furthermore, you can control the privacy of each project. By default anything you create can only be viewed by you, the author. If you choose, however, you can invite and share your work with others, or you can even open your work up to make it publicly accessible via a permanent web address. The choice is yours.

Do you send promotional emails or spam?

We take an “opt-in” approach to newsletters, so you’ll never receive a promotional email from QuirkTools unless you’ve asked for it. Even so, we rarely send out our newsletter, and only do so when we truly feel there’s some exciting news to report. Furthermore, we make it exceedingly easy to instantly unsubscribe from our newsletter. Simply click on the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any newsletter you receive, or visit your account management page and click on the “newsletters” link.

What other types of emails do you send?

If you decide not to opt in to our email newsletters, you may still receive an email from QuirkTools on occasion. These emails are not promotional in nature, but rather are intended to inform you about your projects, invitations you’ve received, or important updates to your account like password reset notifications or changes to your email address. You cannot unsubscribe from these email notifications, as they are required to secure and protect your account information.

How do I delete my account?

You can’t delete your account data through the website. If you decide you don’t want us to keep your email address and other account information on file, you can contact us to make your request.
