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 using UberSimple’s AppPack (“AppPack”).
We encrypt the files that you store on AppPack using the AES-256 standard, which is the same encryption standard used by banks to secure customer data. Encryption for storage is applied after files are uploaded, and we manage the encryption keys.
AppPack uses Amazon S3 for data storage. Amazon stores data over several large-scale data centers. According to Amazon, they use military grade perimeter control berms, video surveillance, and professional security staff to keep their data centers physically secure.
You can find more information about Amazon's security at the Amazon Web Services' website.
Amazon and AppPack also employ significant protection against network security issues such as Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, Man in the Middle (MITM) attacks, and packet sniffing.
Your files are sent between AppPack’s mobile apps and our servers over a secure channel using 256-bit SSL encryption where supported.
UberSimple and Amazon keep 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, AppPack data linked to a computer client will still contain copies of your data (except data you’ve chosen not to sync using Remove option).
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 AppPack 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 AppPack. For example, third-party apps might not employ encryption when transmitting data, might collect information that AppPack does not, and might use information differently than AppPack does.
UberSimpleapplies encryption to your files after they have been uploaded, and we manage the encryption keys. Users who wish to manage their own encryption keys can apply encryption before placing links to files in their AppPack. Please note that if you encrypt files before linking to them, some features will not be available, such as public viewing. Doing so will also make it impossible for us to recover your data if you lose your encryption key.
We take a number of measures to ensure that the data you store on AppPack is safe and secure. While we're very confident in our technology, we recognize that no system can guarantee data security with 100% certainty. For that reason, we will continue to innovate to make sure that our security measures are state of the art, and we will investigate any and all reported security issues concerning AppPack's services or software. For a direct line to our security experts, report security issues to security@AppPack.me.
We'll fully credit anybody whose reports lead to the improvement of AppPack security. A list of those who have contributed reports leading to a bug or security issue can be found on our special thanks page.
