5. How do we protect your information?

StokBox implements the following technical, physical and organisational measures to maintain the safety of your personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorized use, unauthorized modification, disclosure or access and against all other unlawful forms of processing.

5.1. Availability

The Service utilises the extensive features of the cloud environment to ensure high availability, like full redundancy, load balancing, automatic capacity scaling, continuous data backup and geo-replication along with a traffic manager for automatic geographical failover on datacentre level disasters. All failover mechanisms are fully automated.

No personal data is stored permanently outside StokBox cloud platforms. The physical security is thereby maintained by StokBox subcontractors, see clause 7. Microsoft’s datacenters comply with industry standards such as ISO 27001 for physical security and availability, e.g. by using security staff around the clock, two-factor access control using biometric and card readers, barriers, fencing, security cameras and other measures.

5.2. Integrity

To ensure integrity, all data transits are encrypted to align with best practices for protecting confidentiality and data integrity. E.g. all supplied credit card information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our payment gateway provider’s database only to be accessible by those who are authorized to access such systems and who are required to keep the information confidential.

For data in transit, the Service uses industry-standard transport protocols between devices and Microsoft datacentres and within datacentres themselves.

5.3. Confidentiality

All personnel are subject to full confidentiality and any subcontractors and sub processors are required to sign a confidentiality agreement if not full confidentiality is part of the main agreement between the parties.

Whenever personal data is accessed by authorised personnel the access is only possible over an encrypted connection. When accessing the data in a database, the IP number of the person accessing the data must also be pre-authorized to obtain access.

Any device being used to access personal data is login protected by StokBox Azure Active Directory (AAD), Microsoft’s cloud based identity and access management service, and has StokBox corporate antivirus solution installed. If any personal data are temporarily stored on a device, the storage unit on the device will also be strongly encrypted.
