What's the difference between deleting your user account and deleting your team?

  • By deleting your user account you will delete all personal data which belongs to your personal user account (eg. user name, user password, user settings, etc.). This is not including the profile of other teammates or your team account.

  • By deleting your team you will remove all projects and contact data of your team (eg. team projects, team billing email, team settings). This does not include personal user profiles of your teammates.
