Whether it is with development best practices, various controls, compliance with privacy regulations, or adherence to security standards, we work hard to ensure our systems and infrastructure are protected against unauthorized or accidental access, loss, alteration, disclosure, or destruction.
Termly is committed to meeting our customers’ data protection and data security needs. Our Security FAQ delivers a summary of our practices and policies, which help us keep your personal information safe and secure.
Adhering to industry standards is a must, this is why we started our journey to meet the requirements of the SOC 2 Type II attestation.
SOC 2 type II is a security framework that involves a range of practices and policies that are verified through a third-party audit and then presented in a SOC 2 compliance report. Requirements to be SOC 2 compliant cover data management practices in 5 areas: Security, Availability, Confidentiality, Integrity, Privacy.
As this process involves developing numerous practices and policies as well as adherence from all our employees, we take our time to ensure we deliver the right level of security throughout our entire organization. We will keep you posted!
Termly is hosted on a logically separated and distributed AWS cloud infrastructure. We do experience downtime events when AWS infrastructure does, but those are infrequent and usually limited to a handful of specific services.
All system and infrastructure downtime events are logged and researched by the infrastructure and software teams, and appropriate, commercially reasonable measures are taken in response to each event.
Current status, as well as recent incidents, can be found on our System Status page.
