We adhere to a minimal collection policy to only collect what we absolutely need to deliver the service, and do not share data with others.
Data collection and use
On our external website (the SecureAppbox AB home page) we analyze visitor statistics that are not related to SecureAppbox accounts/users, such as what pages are most visited in order to improve usability and contents. These statistics do not track anything related to SecureAppbox accounts/users.
When you register as a user you are requested to provide us with personal data such as name, email address and phone number. This data is used purely to deliver the service to you, it is never shared with an external party. We may contact you in relation to delivering the service.
We temporarily log connection data for security analytics including the IP address to be able to for example detect an attacker causing many failed login attempts. These security connection logs are only available to the security team at SecureAppbox AB and are never shared.
Message metadata (i.e. meta data here is that user A sent a message to user B) is only available until the sender/receiver has deleted the message. Deleting the message also deletes the meta data. This meta data is only used to serve the correct message to the correct user and is never shared with anyone.
All data relating to the Service is securely stored on Amazon AWS servers in Ireland, Europe. Messages are encrypted by SecureAppbox using strong symmetric AES encryption before storage (please see the FAQ for more details about encryption). Business account users can select to change the storage location for where the encrypted messages are stored (please see the FAQ for information about geographic storage).
Messages are encrypted and not available to anyone except the sender and recipient. When a message is sent the recipient may, depending on his account settings, receive an email notification in his standard email about the message in SecureAppbox which may include the message subject. You can change your account settings so your notifications do not include the message subject or name of the sender; to avoid exposing it in normal unsecure email systems.
Disclosure and security

(ii) SecureAppbox AB will share data in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of SecureAppbox AB Terms of Service (TOS), or as otherwise required by law.

If you, an authority or a third party requests data from the personal data assistant regarding your personal data, such request shall be immediately forwarded to us. The personal data assistant may not surrender personal data or other information without our clear consent, unless required by mandatory law. Neither we nor the personal data assistant can access the content in messages you send, the data that may be surrendered is personal data such as name, email address and phone number and meta data.
