Privacy is important to SkyHive. We recognize and appreciate the importance of data security to our overall approach to the protection of personal data. We endeavor to maintain appropriate physical, technical and administrative security safeguards in accordance with the commitment to data security to our clients and with data security laws.

Information that you provide is stored on secure servers and accessed and used subject to our security policies and standards, or those agreed with our service providers. SkyHive holds the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 (ISO 27001) accreditation for its IT operations. ISO27001 is an internationally recognized certification that information security is managed in line with best practices. SkyHive has also completed a SOC2 for its primary Enterprise products and related systems. SOC2 compliance is a security framework that deals with how companies such as SkyHive securely handle personal data in the cloud.

SkyHive employees and contractors, as well as third party service providers whom we may engage to process personal data on our behalf, are also contractually obligated to respect the confidentiality of personal data. 

Information security, however, is a cooperative process. For example, where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our websites or online services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential and for complying with any other security procedures that we notify you of. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
