Simple maintains reasonable security measures to protect your information from loss, destruction, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure. This helps to ensure that your data is safe, secure, and only available to you and those you provide with authorized access. We do not and will not sell your personal information to third parties. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be 100% secure due to the nature of the distributed network that is the Internet. Simple is not liable for any loss or damage resulting from data gathered by unauthorized access to Simple from hacking, social engineering, or otherwise circumventing our security measures. We do, however, take appropriate measures to try to prevent such events from occurring.

CORRECTING AND UPDATING INFORMATION
If you are our customer and would like to access or delete information that you provided, you may contact us inside Simple. We may decline to process unreasonable requests or requests that are not otherwise required by local law. We retain your information and data that we process on your behalf as long as your account is active, as needed to provide our Services, and as necessary to comply with our legal obligations and to resolve disputes.
When you remove your account, we delete all data associated with your account from our production database. We do keep backups, designed for catastrophic system recovery, for 30 days. The backups are purged on a rolling 30 day cycle. When an account is deleted, none of your personal data will remain on our servers past 30 days. Anything you delete from your account while it’s active will also be purged from the backups on day 30. Deactivated users will no longer have access to your account, but their name, email addresses, and time entries will remain in your account for historical reporting purposes.
