Existing members who didn't previously contribute to Couchsurfing financially with a verification payment are required to sign up to a monthly or annual contribution plan. Without that plan, you are unable to access our community.
Members who have made a payment have the ability to request a copy of their data via their privacy settings.
If you choose not to sign up with a monthly or annual contribution but would like to obtain a copy of your data you're welcome to contact our support team and let them know that you wish to receive an extract of your personal data. We will email you a ZIP file containing your personal data in accordance with the European GDPR.
I'm still confused... if I don't want to pay, what are my options?

- You can contact support for a copy of your data to be emailed to you and then for your data to be deleted from our system
