We take privacy very seriously. We collect only what we absolutely need for the purposes of providing high-quality services.
When you sign up for our free trial, we only ask that you verify an email address to help protect our systems against abuse. We ask for a name out of courtesy, though you need not provide a real one.
We only ask for full address and billing information if you decide to take up one of our paid offerings.

Although Kitovu Pty Ltd owns the code, databases and all rights to the todo.vu application, you retain all rights to your data and content.
Our customer support and general staff have no access to your workspace or any tasks or data inside it. While it is theoretically possible for our system engineers to access data, it is stored in obfuscated formats that make this generally very difficult and such access is generally only performed in extreme circumstances.

Access and deletion
todo.vu users can view all information stored about them by logging in and navigating to their account profile (click on your avatar – bottom left) and workspace overview (click on Workspace Settings – top left).
You have a few options for deleting your account. Because you can have multiple workspaces linked to one user account, this requires a couple of simple steps.
Deleting your workspace
The instructions vary slightly depending on what state your workspace is in:
Free Trial or Free Solo
If your workspace is on the free trial then go to the ‘Workspace settings’ page (click on the workspace name top left). And then on the far top right of this page, you will see a 3-dot menu button which will reveal the option to ‘Delete workspace’
If your workspace is in the post-trial status then you must first log in and activate the Free Solo plan to access your workspace. Then you will be able to follow the instructions above.
If your workspace is on a paid plan then you will first need to cancel your subscription and downgrade it to the Free Solo plan before it can be deleted. To do this, go to the ‘Workspace settings’ page (click on the workspace name top left). And then on the far top right of this page, you will see a 3-dot menu button which will reveal the option to ‘Downgrade workspace’ option. Once you have downgraded, your subscription will be cancelled and you will be able to delete the workspace as explained above.
This will place your workspace in our Free Solo plan and remove all users except yourself. You may decide to keep using todo.vu free of charge as a solo user.
Deleting your user account
Once you have removed all workspaces, you will be able to delete your user account. To do this, log in and to go ‘Profile’ – you will then see an option to DELETE ACCOUNT. You can follow the links to remove your account entirely from todo.vu. Note that you can not delete any account that is the owner of a workspace so you must follow the instructions above to delete your workspaces first.
Unsubscribing from mailing lists
As part of the process of joining todo.vu, we add you to 2 mailing lists – one is used only during the trial period and the other is for general system communications. The easiest way to remove yourself from these is to click on the ‘unsubscribe’ links at the bottom of the emails. This will flag your account so that we do not mail you accidentally.
We do not accept email requests to delete workspaces or user accounts due to the risk of malicious attacks.
When you delete a workspace or profile, your data is kept for approximately 60 days before permanent deletion. This period is to safeguard against accidental or malicious deletion. Some data such as financial transaction records and billing details are kept for longer periods as required by Australian law.
todo.vu may periodically update this policy. We will notify you about significant changes in the way we treat personal information by sending a notice to the primary email address specified in your todo.vu primary account holder account or by placing a prominent notice on our site. Such notice will be given at least 3 days in advance of the date the new policy will be applied.
