Privacy Is Our Business
Protecting Your Information
Generally. The security of your information is imperative to us, in fact, this is the core of our or business model, to protect the privacy of our users and their data. Within the technical and legal boundaries, we will keep innovating and pushing the boundaries to maintain the best ever private and secure communication platform.
Technically. We use physical, electronic and sophisticated security methods to prevent unauthorized access, maintain data privacy and to ensure correct protection of information. We use robust encryption technologies including AES 256, RSA 2048, Key Authentication algorithms, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) etc. Our entire user’s data is stored in encrypted form and not even the FortKnoxster Ltd. staff has any access to it whatsoever. In addition, user accounts are protected by multi-factor authentication (optional).
Legally. Our servers are hosted in a Swiss highly secure data centre. Furthermore, our Secure Sockets Layers (SSL) are also of Swiss origin and hence protected by the strict Swiss privacy laws which mean that FortKnoxster Ltd. cannot be compelled to any lawful interception or other attacks on privacy. Again, even if data were compromised, it would be of no use as all data is highly encrypted. We also refer to the Non-Disclosure section below.
FortKnoxster Ltd. collects and uses anonymous user information for the following limited purposes:
1. Sent and Received Messages: We do not have access to any message content as it is highly encrypted. We do have access to the following records: Number of messages sent, storage space used, total number of messages, last login time and country code login.
2. Emails: All emails provided to us during the account creating procedure, are confidential information and your email will never be sold, shared, given, leased or disclosed to any third parties. Due to extra security matters, your email is required to send you the initial link in the account creating process.
Managing Your Data
Your data belongs to you and you can delete it at any time. Your account information can be changed anytime by logging into your account and change or delete information. If you wish to delete your account, we will erase all your remaining encrypted account data from our servers. Any free accounts that are inactive for a period of more than 12 months may be automatically deleted.
All our servers are located in Switzerland. All data is at any given time stored in encrypted format. Temporary backups are also fully encrypted. We have no way of access your encrypted data and hence cannot recover your password, should you lose it.
FortKnoxster Ltd. has a zero-disclosure policy. We will not respond to any requests from authorities regarding information about users, logs, data or similar. Any authority must direct a request to the relevant Swiss authorities, which may then possibly contact us, following the protocol that the relevant legislation stipulates. We will not comply with demands from any authorities to a higher extent than the Swiss law demands.
FortKnoxster Ltd. uses a time limited encrypted session cookie on this website. No persistent cookies are ever used on this website. Once the individual session ends, the session cookie is deleted.
This applies only to users who are using our “upgrade” Services. Third parties process all electronic payment transactions and FortKnoxster Ltd. does not retain any customer payment information. For administration purposes, we do need to store data on which account was paid for by a particular transaction.
We will respond to support requests via email within one business day. If you have questions, ideas or comments about our Services, please contact us at info@FortKnoxster.com.
