How can I remove all account data from your systems?

You can remove the vast majority of information records from your systems from the account settings page. Use the "Delete Account" functionality and we will automatically delete the data we keep about you and your account.

There may still be residual information such as errors logs, emails, calendar invites, data backups etc that record some personal information about you (primarily email address, name and any content sent via email). If you also require this information to be deleted, please contact our privacy officer (

How can I remove my information if I am a user or employee?

You may delete your user account from the "My Settings" page. However, your information may still be kept on our systems by the person who owns the Runn account. You will need to ask them directly to remove information they have kept about you (such as your name, email, timesheets, etc).
