We believe our highly secure physical controls at data centers and transit level encryption ensures that your data stays well protected.

Users have access only to the inboxes they are members of. The inbox memberships can be controlled and modified by the inbox or team admin. In addition to this, users will have access to messages and email drafts that are shared with them.

Data Rectification

Users can edit all of their personal information except the registered email address. However, we could assist you in replacing the email address associated with your Zoho TeamInbox account. You can write to us to request a replacement.

We have appropriate functionalities in our interface to allow users to delete their data. Use the Delete option to delete your data. When you delete a user, the data associated with the user will be scheduled for deletion, and will be deleted within 30 days of actual user deletion.

Data Portability

We export data from your Zoho TeamInbox account upon request. Write to us if needed and we'll export your data for you.

Data Retention

The data retention period in Zoho TeamInbox is 30 days. When you delete messages they are moved to Trash, where they stay for 30 days. The data in Trash can be restored, until they are automatically cleaned up by the system. After that the messages will be permanently deleted from our database.

Data Disclosure

Data Disclosure is the level of access within the service, where only authorized users can access, alter or delete service data. The organization administrator can assign permissions to users and thereby can allow or restrict data access to them.
