Questions & Answers

What happens when I delete my account?

All your personal data will be permanently erased from the system and will no longer be accessible. Any trees you’ve created in your account will remain on the site whether or not you have a subscription unless you delete them first.

Does deleting my account cancel my paid subscription?

No. You need to cancel your subscription first. However, once you cancel your subscription you will still have a registered guest account. Registered guests accounts are free and provide you with access to many resources. If you do not want this account you need to delete it separately.
