IdeaGist Security Overview
We provide this overview so that you can better understand the security measures we’ve put in-place to protect the information that you store on IdeaGist website.
We encrypt the data that you store on IdeaGist using the AES-256 standard, which is the same encryption standard used by banks to secure customer data.
Your data is sent between IdeaGist’s desktop clients and our servers over a secure channel using 256-bit SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption, the standard for secure Internet network connections. The transmission of data between our web server and your browser is automatically adjusted to SSL, regardless of your initial connection type.
Your Ideas are sent between IdeaGist’s mobile apps and our servers over a secure channel using 256-bit SSL encryption where supported.
Your Data is Backed Up
IdeaGist keeps redundant backups of all data over multiple locations to prevent the remote possibility of data loss. In the unlikely event that this redundancy were to fail, IdeaGist has the capability of restoring nightly backups.
We guard your privacy to the best of our ability and work hard to protect your information from unauthorized access.
If you choose to access IdeaGist using third-party applications (“apps”), be aware that those apps utilize their own security protocols and have their own privacy policies. If you’re not comfortable with the privacy and security features of those apps, you shouldn’t use them to access IdeaGist. For example, third-party apps might not employ encryption when transmitting data, might collect information that IdeaGist does not, and might use information differently than IdeaGist does.
Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement
