These email addresses and notifications may be stored by Hightail for future use and as part of transaction information related to files stored in our Hightail account. In cases where users are uploading, downloading or synchronize files to/from their computer or other devices (such as phone or tablet), depending on the features used, Hightail may access the user’s computer and other devices for the purpose of uploading, downloading or synchronizing the files. You can read more about how files are managed on Hightail Terms of Service page.
