We protect your data
All data is written to multiple disks instantly, backed up daily, and stored in multiple locations. Files that our customers upload are stored on servers that use modern techniques to remove bottlenecks and points of failure.
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.
Sophisticated physical security
The majority of data center locations are SAS70 Type II and SSAE16 Type II audited and certified. This means that our clients can rest assured that security procedures, access control mechanisms, and other operational aspects of facility management have been defined and are being enforced on an ongoing basis.
Our state-of-the-art servers are protected by biometric locks and round-the-clock interior and exterior surveillance monitoring. Only authorized personnel have access to the data center. 24/7/365 onsite staff provides additional protection against unauthorized entry and security breaches.
Our software infrastructure is updated regularly with the latest security patches. Our products run on a dedicated network which is locked down with firewalls and carefully monitored. While perfect security is a moving target, we work with security researchers to keep up with the state-of-the-art in web security.
We protect your billing information
All credit card transactions are processed using secure encryption—the same level of encryption used by leading banks. Card information is transmitted, stored, and processed securely on a PCI-Compliant network.
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 use reasonable efforts to assure that our employees and agents are informed of our security and privacy practices.
