Guarding our users against security breach is something we take seriously. We are committed to doing all we can to remain secure and helping our users to manage their own account security responsibly.
What AreaMetrics Does to Protect Data
We use a variety of industry-standard security technologies and procedures to help protect personal and public data from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. To protect data in transit, AreaMetrics encrypts traffic using TLS configured with industry best-practices. We also leverage OAuth and implement access controls.
Security Testing and Updates
AreaMetrics’ security team tests for security vulnerabilities and bugs on a regular basis. We have also setup boundary protection measures such as firewalls and intrusion detection.
Third Party Applications using AreaMetrics Data
We require unique keys for developers who want to return data, and we reserve the right to revoke an app key if our developer terms and conditions or guidelines are not followed. In addition, we use industry-standard protocols for authorization.
Secure Physical Location
Our servers are located in DigitalOcean’s data centers. Our users can find information about the security of DigitalOcean’s servers at https://www.digitalocean.com/security/.
We hold our employees to strict guidelines regarding confidentiality and do not allow disclosure of personal or private contact information to any third party without permission. We limit the access and use of personal information to personnel with a legitimate business need.
Data Transmission and Disposal
AreaMetrics uses reasonable encryption methods for transmission of information across networks and has implemented processes for the secure disposal of personal information.
Recommended Precautions for our Users
No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while AreaMetrics uses reasonable efforts to protect your data, AreaMetrics cannot guarantee its absolute security.
