We're committed to the highest standards of data protection and security.


Data is always encrypted, both while on transit and at rest. In transit using strong, modern TLS. And at rest we use one of the strongest block chipers available, 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES-256). Additionally, all secret keys are automatically rotated on a regular basis.

Data location

All data is securely stored within the European Union. Our data centers have world-class security standards and compliance certifications. This facilitates our commitment with privacy regulations, and leverages the EU's strong standards for data protection.

Threat detection

Our infrastructure has automated vulnerability scanning, threat detection, and bot protection. Our partners Cloudflare and Amazon Web Services are industry leaders in security.

Site reliability

Our systems continuously monitor for failures, and escalate to our team as needed to minimize downtime and prevent issues for our users. We commit to 99.9% uptime for customers with SLAs on their plan, but in practice achieve 99.995% uptime.

Application security

Our web application is designed and frequently tested with OWASP Top 10 in mind. This accounts for the most common types of attacks such as injection, broken authentication, XSS, CSRF, and several others.

Security best practices

We enforce two-factor authentication on all accounts with access to our infrastructure, and use hardware authentication whenever possible. All secrets are encrypted, and rotated regularly. All development equipment uses disk encryption. We follow the Principle of Least Privilege at all levels of our infrastructure.
