Using RetroTool does not require prior registration, however there is an option for the users to set up an account.

By using RetroTool, users may transfer personal data. In that case personal data will be transferred outside the European Union, as the owner of the application and thus the administrator of personal data is u2i. u2i undertakes to exercise due diligence and secure the personal data entrusted to it, and these issues are regulated in the Privacy Policy. Each user by using RetroTool agrees to the content and provisions of the Privacy Policy.

All the services of RetroTool are directed to people who are at least 18 years old or older. RetroTool is not intended for use by children. RetroTool is not designed or intentionally targeted at children. We do not knowingly collect or maintain information about anyone under the age of 18.

If we learn that we have collected personal information from someone under the age of 18 that was not provided with the supervision and consent of the minor’s parents or legal guardian, we will promptly delete that information. If you believe we have impermissibly collected personal information from someone under the age of 18, please contact us.

You hereby declare to know, that after two months Retrospectives are automatically canceled from the archives. u2i does not bear any liability for any data, information, loss, damage, injury etc. that arise or may arise due to this automatic cancellation of the Retrospectives from the archives older than 90 days.
