Privacy

  • Does Hiver store my emails?
    • Hiver does not store any email data except Message-ID, subject line and email headers (To, From, Cc) - they help us run the analytics for you. The email body (including the attachments) is never stored with Hiver. Hiver stores raw email data temporarily in an encrypted state while it syncs emails across Gmail accounts. This duration will never exceed 10 minutes for 99% of the emails. When the emails have been successfully synced across user accounts, the data is deleted permanently.
  • Does Hiver read my emails?
    • Absolutely not. No human ever reads your emails. Our support team might look at your email headers (To, From, Cc) and Message-ID if you contact us with a problem you're facing and give us explicit permission to access your email to fix the problem.
  • Is my data secure during transfer
    between Hiver’s and Google’s servers?
    • The communication and data transfer between Hiver servers and Google’s server happen over TLS 1.2 encrypted connection, so your data is secure during transfer between ours and Google’s servers.
  • Does Hiver store my Gmail password?
    • No. Hiver neither requires nor stores your password. As part of the sign-in process, you provide your password to Google, and we use OAuth to interact with Google’s servers. Hiver will never ask for or store your password.
  • Is Hiver GDPR compliant?
    • Yes. Hiver is committed to protecting the security of your personal information and has completed the GDPR assessment.

    • Yes. You can cancel your Hiver subscription anytime during your trial or subscription period. However, if you cancel your Hiver account, you will be billed for the current billing cycle.
  • Can I delete my Hiver account?
    • Yes. You, once you have canceled your Hiver subscription, can delete your Hiver account from the Hiver admin panel. This will erase all account-related data and configuration.

    my account?
