Is admin able to boot me from hipchat and at same time keep my content Edited

This issue makes me not want to use hipchat at all unless I am admin.  So I'm an employee and I'm fired.  Or I'm using hipchat to talk with a business associate, he is the admin for the account, and then we have a falling out.

Can the admin deny me further access and keep my content?

Or is the only option that I be deleted as a user?

If I am deleted will my content remain available to admin?




You see with any chat program I can think of, each participant is able to maintain all chat.  No one participant has the ability to boot others from the conversation while at the same time denying that booted participant from his content for all time.

Hipchat is designed for use by organizations. Typically (in US companies) all content you create in a chat software owned by them, is also owned by them. You can connect to Hipchat using an XMPP client instead of the Hipchat client and configure it to write out all communications into local log files. But, this may violate the terms of use of whatever organization whose Hipchat instance you are connecting to.

To answer your questions directly:

  1. Yes they can disable (ban) you and retain the account
  2. Yes they can retain your content (depending on the plan)
  3. Yes they can delete your account
  4. If your account is deleted, then your content will remain as interactions with others

Understood.  Well, is there a way to download (easily) all my content on a regular basis.
