Is my data safe, i.e. what about backups?
QuoteVault works with Google and their BigTable databases. Your data are as safe as they can be, as they're backuped over several servers in the biggest and advanced data center off the world.
Why doesn't the bookmarklet work in my browser?
QuoteVault is currently in beta. We couldn't test the bookmarklet with all available browser combinations yet. However, as some browsers lack the necessary technical advancements to support bookmarklets, you might want to evaluate switching your browser. Not only for QuoteVault, but also because newer and better browsers significantly enhance the internet experience. We recommend the Google Chrome Browser.
Is there a limit on Quotes? Can I only collect a specific amount and then I suddenly have to pay?
No, you will be able to collect as many quotes as you wish.
Are there options for accessing my Quotes by means of other Software?
Yes. We offer a export mechanism, which lets you export all your Quotes to a XML format. In addition to that, we're currently working on an API which will allow for an even better implementation of third-party Software.
Can I share my Quotes with other people?
In QuoteVault, every user has a personal public profile. The Default configuration is to show your most recent 20 Quotes on this public profile. This allows people to find each other through similar interests in terms of quotes. However, you can easily deactivate this setting in the Options. If you deactivate it, all your Quotes will be kept private except you explicitly publish them.
Can I send Quotes to my Weblog?
Yes. QuoteVault offers a XMLRPC Mechanism. This means, that you can export your Quotes to most standard Blogging Engines. Blogger, WordPress and MovableType are supported, for example.
