At Quip, we're committed to protecting personal data, and we welcome the GDPR as an important step forward in streamlining data protection requirements across the European Union. We see the GDPR as an opportunity for Quip to forge a deeper partnership with our customers by supporting them on their compliance journey.
Under the GDPR, your customers have the right to request that their personal data be deleted. Quip offers an array of features—both within the product and through the Quip API—to help you comply with those requests. We've also got a full support team at the ready who can step in and help do the work for you.
Quip offers a number of ways for users and admins to retrieve the data contained in their documents, spreadsheets, and chats. Documents can be exported as PDFs, HTML, LaTeX, Word files, or Markdown, and the Quip API and Business Portal can be used to handle more complex requests.
The GDPR requires you and your company to honor people’s requests about how you use their data. Quip allows users to control who can see their actions in Quip, how they get notified about new activity, and what activities they get notified about in the first place.
In Quip, users have a number of ways to limit how their data is used. They can restrict access to a given document—or delete that document entirely. Administrators can disable specific users, set editing permissions across their entire site, or use the API to create snapshots of their site's data before deleting it.
“We are committed to our customers’ success, including compliance with the GDPR.”
