Privacy and data protection policy
Project administrators (roles: admin, owner) can export customer data, using the specific functions (consult the Tiledesk documentation for further information), at any time during the term of the contract. We have included data export capabilities in our terms to enhance our data export capabilities, making it even easier to download a copy of your project data.
You can also delete end user data, via the Tiledesk services functionality, at any time. When Tiledesk receives a complete deletion instruction from you (for example when a conversation you have deleted can no longer be recovered from your “recycle bin”), Tiledesk will delete the relevant conversation data from all its systems within a maximum period of 180 days, unless special data retention obligations apply. In some cases and with particular privileges it is possible to completely delete the data, instantly and definitively, without going through the trash function.
What happens when a subscription expires?
Even if your support account is still accessible for a certain period of time after expiration or suspension, no new requests will reach your project and you will not be able to reply to old chats until we have processed the payment.
About 10 days after your project reaches the state where you can no longer receive or respond to requests, the project will become completely inaccessible. Reports and dashboards can no longer be recovered and the project will be deleted. If your account is inaccessible, please submit a support request using Tiledesk’s support chat, at the bottom right of this page.
Stopping or deleting a Project
Ninety (90) days after account closure or, except as noted below, two hundred and seventy (270) days after the trial period ends (assuming you have not purchased a subscription), an automatic process will begin which permanent Data for the canceled Project. The automatic cancellation procedure will not start for ninety (90) days. Once started, this process cannot be undone and the project data will be permanently deleted.
Can data be recovered from a deleted account?
Once an account is deleted, access to data within the account is lost. In accordance with our data deletion policy, an automatic deletion process begins after 90 days to permanently delete the data of the interrupted service.
Within these 90 days, it is possible to reactivate the account. If reactivated, the use of the account will be charged for the amount due from the time of cancellation to the current billing period.
Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery
Tiledesk’s Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Program ensures resilience, recoverability and contingency from service disruptions, such as local or regional events, natural disasters, fires, power outages, acts of malice, technical or infrastructural outages. Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery focus on ensuring that Tiledesk’s critical functions and technologies will continue to function despite a significant outage that may otherwise have caused an outage, and will be restored to an operational state within a reasonably short period.
Resilience and risk mitigation
Business resilience is the ability of an organization to adapt quickly to disruptions while maintaining continuous business operations and safeguarding people, resources and overall brand value. One of the most important factors in maintaining business resilience is a proactive, comprehensive and methodical approach to risk (both internal and external to our clients).
* We have developed a risk structure and strategy that takes into account the assessment of our facilities, technology, applications, data, processes and overall organization to ensure that our risk mitigation strategy operates on multiple levels with broad coverage.
* On an annual basis we conduct risk assessments and business impact analyzes (BIA) to understand and mitigate risks.
Redundancy and recoverability
The clustering of our servers and network redundancies eliminate single points of failure, ensuring high service availability.
* Tiledesk uses a fully redundant, distributed and automated environment consisting of geographically separated data centers running multiple self-contained instances of the Tiledesk application. As a precaution, we have additional space and potential to add capacity to our data centers in the event that a data center becomes unrecoverable in the event of a disaster.
* We have multiple Internet Service Providers, connected on heterogeneous channels.
* Our data is stored on efficient flash memory devices with multiple redundant clustered servers and databases.
* Our strict backup regime helps protect your data in the event of a serious accident. Key source data for Tiledesk’s standard accounts is backed up daily, which includes both local and external storage.

Trust: Tiledesk is constantly improving its security protection and control processes to help its customers ensure a safe environment for their information.
Localization of Data Hosting: all data are hosted on European servers.
Login Management: Tiledesk offers an advanced set of login and encryption features to help customers effectively protect their information. We do not access or use customer content for purposes other than the provision, maintenance and improvement of Tiledesk’s services or when otherwise required by law.
Who owns and controls the data of the services
From a privacy point of view, the customer is the owner of the Service Data and Tiledesk is responsible for them. This means that for as long as a customer is subscribed to Tiledesk’s services, he retains ownership and control of the Service Data of his account.
How Tiledesk uses Service Data
We use Service Data to manage and improve our services, help customers access, use them, and follow up on their requests, as well as to send them communications relating to the services provided.
What actions does Tiledesk take to protect Service Data
Data security is a priority for Tiledesk. To ensure ongoing protection of individual customer and business data, we combine enterprise-grade security features with comprehensive audits of our applications, systems and networks.

Adherence to the Access and Rectification obligation
Allow data subjects to request a data controller to correct any errors in their personal data.
Adherence to the cancellation obligation
Provide the interested party with the right to cancel their personal data where their further processing is not justified. For example, it may be necessary to delete a customer’s personal data to meet their GDPR obligations. Chat administrators can delete Chat Agents profile information. By deleting the Agent’s profile information in the Tiledesk Chat, the Agent’s name, e-mail, display name and displayed image (avatar) will also be deleted.

Owner and manager of data processing
With respect to each Project in Tiledesk, the subscriber user of the project (the one who pays the subscription) is the “Data Controller” for that project together with Tiledesk SRL.
The data controller in the figure of the Subscriber can internally appoint its Data Processor.

- A single user permanently closes their account
