You are responsible for preventing unauthorized access to your Octobox account and all the personal information by selecting and protecting your password appropriately and limiting access to your computer or device and browser by signing off after you finish accessing your account. We outsource payment processing to ensure the highest standard of safety. We decided to use Braintree as one of leading solutions regarding payment collection. 
To assure the safety of your sensitive/credit information, we use a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information are transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL – a technology which ensures privacy by generating an encrypted link between web server and browser) and then encrypted into our payment gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.

b. protection against DDoS attacks; 
c. Firewall; 
d. private IP addresses. 

Database dumps take place every hour and the data stored on WWW hosting is copied each 6 hours in order not to lose any of the data provided by our users. 

We want to minimize the situations in which the data a user is adding to Octobox is not saved due to a sudden update of the infrastructure, that is why the infrastructure updates take place only when necessary. 
What is more, the Octobox team makes sure that all additional actions are taken to maintain a secure infrastructure and application environment, that is why we cooperate with a group of experienced admins who monitor system activity 24hours/7 days a week. We have implemented an effective disaster procedure what ensures that we are able to detect and recover data in case of most errors. 

Physical security of servers & data centers 
The data centres are under 24/7 security, constant conservation, constant registered monitoring, and movement detection. All spheres are protected with fences equipped in barbed wire, which enables only authorized personnel to enter the data centres and react immediately to any emergencies. 

ISO 27001 

We take the safety of your information very personally, that is why we work within and implement the regulations of ISO 27001 data safety management system on the daily basis. Currently, we are in the process of confirming our actions to maintain security and safety of our users’ data by having them certified. 

System status security 

We are extremely proud of a very small number of incidents that have caused any breaks in the access to Octobox. We are not ashamed of any difficulties occurring in the past, that is why we keep the history of our system status out for public. 

However, in case of any issues in the future we make sure to constantly monitor the status of our system and inform our users of any problems.
