We cannot view it unless you expressly give us permission or it’s necessary to comply with our legal obligations.

Also if you contact our Customer Support team for help with specific pieces of Data in your account (for example, if you can’t find a note you believe should be in your account), we may ask for your temporary permission to look at your Data. This permission terminates when the issue is resolve.
Where we need to process your personal information either to comply with law, or to perform the terms of a contract we have with you and you fail to provide that information when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with the functionalities of the Services). In this case, we may have to stop you using our Services.
