How do I get my data back?
If you have less than 10 collections, you can get your data immediately through download all per collection prior to May 25, 2018.

Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request your tags and descriptions.
If you have more assets, contact email@example.com for your data, including all of your tags and descriptions, which will be shipped within four weeks in a CSV format.
If you choose to do nothing, your data will be sent back to you via drive by June 30, 2018, to the address in your billing settings. Longer shipping times can be expected for international customers.
What timeframe can I expect to get my data if it is outside of the United States?
