How do we protect your information?

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access your personal information. We offer the use of a secure server. We use Stripe for accepting payments and managing subscriptions.

Your data is secure, and available

We implement a variety of measures to ensure that our processing systems remain confidential, resilient, and available. Specifically, we have implemented processes to help ensure high availability, business continuity, and prompt disaster recovery. We commit to maintaining strong physical and logical access controls, and conduct regular penetration testing to identify and address potential vulnerabilities.

Business Continuity. We keep encrypted backups of data every hour in multiple regions on Amazon Web Services. While never expected, in the case of production data loss (i.e., primary data stores loss), we will restore organizational data from these backups.

Penetration Testing. We engage an independent, third-party agency to perform black box penetration testing on a regular basis. Information about security vulnerabilities that are successfully exploited through penetration testing is then used to set mitigation and remediation priorities. All medium and high vulnerability issues are identified and resolved as early as possible.
