Data security

From a technical perspective, we secure your personal data in the following ways:

  • All http requests are https (SSL encryption).

  • On our servers (AWS, based in France or Ireland), we store business assets (such as logos, jingles, music and font files) and user logs based on their activities on Check it Out Products. If your company has activated the feature allowing to back up your video projects from the mobile devices to the web services, or if you have created video projects directly from the web interface, we store these video projects.

In our database (AWS Neo4j), with respect to personal data management, we only store the relationships between work emails and workspaces

  • User activity is recorded on our secure AWS servers based on the use of our Services. We do not record personal data, except for the user’s unique identification number and business email address.

  • Personal passwords used by individuals to log in / register for the Services are managed by a specialist third party and fully encrypted. We do not have access to them.

  • We have an access/intrusion detection system included in our authentication management service. This IDS deals with (i) brute force protection and (ii) violated password protection. It sends an email to the attacked person, blocks login attempts and notifies administrators.

We also secure your personal data from an organisational perspective:

  • We have specified access roles in Check it Out SAS.

  • Only our CEOs / CTOs / COOs have full access to our server side services (storage and database).

  • The technical team also has modified access to several services as it is part of their daily tasks to improve the technical aspects of the Services.

  • Other team members do not have access to the Services back-end or programming interfaces.

  • All back-end user account passwords are complex as they are generated with a password manager.

  • All Check it Out SAS members are encouraged to manage their authentication via the password manager, generating complex passwords.

  • All Check it Out SAS members are regularly trained in information security and access permissions are reviewed each time employees enter/leave and at least every 3 months.

Data location

Personal data that is stored in our database is in France, Ireland and Belgium (on Amazon Web Services servers and on our third-party authentication service).

Personal data stored in our CRM (Customer Relationship Manager) is hosted in Germany.

Retention Period

We retain Personal Data for as long as necessary for the purposes for which the Personal Data was collected, based on the following criteria:

  • The duration of our contractual relationship;

  • The management of the commercial relationship;

  • Legal requirements (including accounting requirements).
