How is your data protected?

All personal data Estimator processes are protected from unauthorized and unlawful access, alteration, disclosure, use, and destruction. For instance, I take among other things the following technical and organizational measures to protect your data:

  • Only data that is needed for Estimator is stored.
  • Atlassian access credentials are not stored permanently.
  • Security of our network connections through TLS.
  • The (access to) data is secured with passwords and two-factor authentication.
  • Estimator runs on servers at Gigalixir, a managed hosting provider that takes care of keeping systems updated and secure. The data entered into Estimator is hosted with Google Cloud in Belgium.
  • Estimator uses Scalingo as a database hoster which takes care of database security and encrypts the database at rest.

Estimator is software running on the internet, and while I do my best to keep it secure, getting hacked is not outside the realm of possibility.
