Where can I change my billing information?
If you are the site owner, you can change billing information from the site's account page.
How do I delete a site from my account?
If you are the site owner, you can delete site from the site's settings page. Note, if you delete a site, all information related to the site is permanently deleted.
How do I delete my account?
You can delete your account from your account page. If you are registered as a site owner, you will have to remove sites you own, before you can delete your account. Note, when deleting your account, all your personal account data is removed, so you cannot log in to MediumRisk or access any data on the sites.
Will my data be available if I don't extend the site's service plan?
If you don't extend a service plan for a site, the site will still be available after the service plan has expired, but in read-only mode. The API is also available for read-only actions, after the service plan has expired. Hence, you can take a complete snapshot of your data, even when your service plan has expired.
If a site's service plan has been expired for a long period, say 1 year, we may contact you by email to verify that you are still interested in keeping the site.
Free accounts that are not used may be deleted after a few months of inactivity. You will receive an email notification before the site is deleted.
What about data safety?

When communicating with MediumRisk you use a strong encrypted communication channel (256 bit SSL), so the risk of somebody eavesdropping on the communication is practically not existing. Data stored on the server is not accessible to anyone but you, people you invite to your projects(s) and by MediumRisk support. We will not access your data, unless you violate the Terms of Service, or if you ask for support to manage your data.
