Does Ocean.io take care of my data?

Your data belongs to you. We’re proud to be GDPR compliant and – unlike other services – Ocean.io will never read your emails. Check out our privacy policy to find out how we take care of your data.



What permissions does Ocean.io ask for?

We’ve designed Ocean.io to be as unobtrusive as possible. When installing the Chrome extension you’ll be asked to allow Ocean.io to “Read and change your data on inbox.google.com and mail.google.com”. Don’t worry, this is just a technical necessity. Ocean.io will never read your emails, and none of your personal data will be edited or amended. All Ocean.io needs are your email address, and, if you are a Pro subscriber, your full name. Check out our privacy policy for clarification on how we handle your data.



Will Ocean.io ever read my emails?

No – unlike some other services – and we never will. Ocean.io doesn’t need to know what you’re writing to give you the inside track on who you’re writing to. Some things should always be private, don’t you think?



Is Ocean.io compliant with the European GDPR?

Yes, we are proud to be compliant. The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will require that we keep our European customers’ data protected in line with a general standard throughout the European Union and will apply to all EU member states from May 25, 2018. Find out more about how we comply with the regulations.



Will Ocean.io sell my data?

No. We’ll never share your information with third-parties for commercial purposes. Check out our privacy policy to find out more about how we care for your data.



Will you ever send me or my contacts any unsolicited email or spam?

No, we wouldn’t dream of it. We only scan the sender information to show you who’s behind the emails you receive – nothing else. Unless you subscribe to our newsletter, you’ll only get helpful messages from us when you first install Ocean.io, confirm your Pro subscription and if you successfully invite friends to start using Ocean.io.
