Data storage and backups

We are using Google Cloud & Firebase for storing and processing the data.  

Updated firewalls and other technical methods are used to protect the Operations Center network against unauthorized access. Customer’s data is stored logically separated from other customers’ data. We have data backups for 30 days stored in Google cloud and encrypted  by Google. Older data is automatically churned by the cloud. Incase of an incident the affected parties are informed and data is restored using the latest  backup. Our data servers and storage servers are located in the USA and Europe. 

 

Data Security

All Firebase(database and storage) services have successfully completed the ISO 27001 and SOC 1, SOC 2, and SOC 3 evaluation process, and some have also completed the ISO 27017 and ISO 27018 certification process. Firebase services encrypt data in transit using HTTPS and logically isolate customer data. All our website and  network calls are encrypted and use  HTTPS protocol. 

Illumine utilizes end-to-end SSL encryption from the end user’s device all the way to the database as well as between internal services on the servers.


Data Privacy

Illumine has a permission system as part of Portal, lets you choose who can see and access what information. No parent can access any other parents' data in the system. 

Illumine’s database service restricts access to select employees who have a business purpose to access data stored. Database service logs employee access to systems whenever access is made. Illumine database service only permits access to data by employees who sign in with Google Sign-In and 2-factor authentication.

What is a security breach procedure?

Provided that Illumine detects a security breach or threat thereof in relation to the portal, Illumine will seek to locate and identify such breach or threat as well as the scope of the issue as soon as possible, seek to limit the potential or occurred damage to the extent possible, seek to hinder such a security breach in the future and to the extent possible, restore any lost data.

In the case of a security breach where unauthorized people gain access to the Customer’s data or where the loss of data has occurred, Illumine will, when possible, cf. e.g. the section “Procedure”, notify the Customer in a written notice about the security breach. Such notifications will contain information about which data Illumine deems to have been accessed unauthorized, whether Illumine has initiated special precautions, and the notification will inform whether the Customer, according to Illumine's evaluation, must take special precautions.
