If we learn that we have inadvertently obtained information in violation of applicable laws prohibiting collection of information from children without such consent, we will promptly delete it.

Where Does My Data Go?

The Service is available worldwide, but your data is stored in the United States, as described in our Privacy Policy. If you use the Service, you acknowledge that you may be sending electronic communications (including your Basic Subscriber Information and Content), through computer networks operated by Scripture Notes or third parties (such as Amazon and other hosts), in various locations in the United States and other countries. As a result, your use of the Service will possibly result in interstate and possibly international data transmissions, and your use of the Service shall constitute your consent to permit such transmissions.

How is My Account Closed?

You may deactivate your account with our Service at any time, for any reason (or no reason).

If you are a current subscriber your account will be closed and your data deleted.

Scripture Notes may act to temporarily limit your use of the Service, suspend access to your account, or close your account, with or without notice according to these Terms. Reasons for Scripture Notes suspending or closing your account may include, without limitation: (i) breach or violation of these Terms (including the User Guidelines) or any Separate Agreement, (ii) an extended period of inactivity (determined in Scripture Notes’s sole discretion), (iii) your nonpayment of any fees or other sums due Scripture Notes or any other party related to your use of the Service, (iv) the discontinuance or material modification of the Service (or any part thereof) or (v) unexpected technical or security issues or problems or extensive Unsupported Use.

In most cases, in the event we elect to close your account, we will provide at least 30 days notice to you at the email address you have provided to us, so you have a chance to retrieve any Content stored on the Service servers (unless we determine that we are legally prohibited from providing such notice or enabling you to do so). After the expiration of this notice period, you will no longer be able to retrieve Content contained in that account or otherwise use the Service through that account.

What happens to my data if I stop paying for the service?

Users that sign up for an account and upload personal content to store notes stored on our servers will continue to have that content stored under these provisions:

  1. They are paying for a membership.
  2. They are logging in regularly using a free membership that is not in an expired status caused by failure to log in.

Failure to follow one of these paths may put your data at risk of deletion. At this present time we have not implemented a deletion policy for expired and inactive accounts. In the future we will consider doing this based on use cases we see on the site.

As noted above, you may request your account data be deleted at any time.
