Data storage policy
At Actioner, ensuring the security of our users' data is paramount. To this end, we employ robust cryptography policies and practices. All data stored within our systems is encrypted at rest using the AES256 encryption standard, providing an additional layer of protection against unauthorized access. Furthermore, we uphold strict encryption standards for data in transit, both within our internal networks and over public channels. All data transmissions utilize TLS1.2 or higher encryption protocols, safeguarding information from interception or tampering. In terms of cryptographic key management, we rely on the AWS Key Management Service (KMS) for secure and controlled handling of cryptographic keys. This includes secure key generation, restricted access, secure storage, regular backups, and periodic rotation of keys. Our integration with AWS services streamlines the encryption process and enhances control over access to keys, thereby bolstering the overall security of our platform.We operate a comprehensive backup program at Actioner. This includes our internal systems, where our backup measures are designed in line with system recovery requirements. With respect to our cloud services, and specifically referring to you and your application data, we also have extensive backup measures in place. Our data backups are retained for 30 days with support for point-in-time recovery and are encrypted using AES-256 encryption.

Data hosting details
Actioner is a cloud-native product whose infrastructure is hosted on industry-leading cloud provider Amazon Web Services (AWS). Actioner cloud services and data are hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Where all our computing, messaging, network, and storage layers are located in the US West, our browser application is distributed via our CDN network all over the world. As a design standard, all Actioner services as well as the upstream computing, messaging, network and storage services are running on multiple availability zones (AZs) so that the traffic and the data are distributed among them. This design allows us to tolerate zone-specific failures with no downtime. This multi-zone high availability is the first line of defense for geographic and environmental risks and means that services running in multi-AZ deployments should be able to withstand AZ failure.
