CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECURITY

Where we collect nonpublic personal information from you, we or one or more of our service providers use industry-standard encryption and security standards to protect such information. You can tell whether encryption is being used by noting the "locked" or other status indicator on the browser you are using. If the browser you are using does not indicate that the session is secure (e.g. by displaying a lock, a key or another icon), you should assume that the connection is not secure and that it is possible for third parties to surreptitiously and/or illegally intercept the information shared by you and us during that part of the session.

We limit access to personal information about you to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs. We have physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect personal information about you. We use reasonable efforts to assure that our employees and agents are informed of our security and privacy practices.

To learn more about security, including the security steps we have taken and security steps you can take, please read Security at askcow.

"How askcow managed to be equally simple for tiny and huge projects"

    • Elaborated interface
    • Ultimate data control
    • Polished scenarios
    • Instant notifications
    • File management
    • Security
    and a lot more...

Though each piece of this functionality is the must for any project management solution, you can hardly find a tool where all these items are available. So why majority of services go without them, and askcow doesn't?

We firmly consider that nobody can run a simple or complex activity equally efficient without any of listed features, and here is our detailed explanation.
