As a cloud service, the security of your data is our top priority. Based on the legal framework of the European General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) as well as common standards and guidelines such as ISO/IEC 27001, we have implemented and continue to develop technical and organizational measures to ensure secure processing of information.
Some of the most important measures are explained below. In addition to these, we have implemented further safeguards on which we provide further information if required.
Our application is hosted on servers provided by Amazon Web Services in its European data centers. It provides best-in-class security infrastructure, takes care of back-ups, logging, auditing and other infrastructure-related services.
We leverage all capabilities including physical security and environmental controls to secure our infrastructure from physical threat or impact.
Each site is staffed 24/7/365 with on-site physical security to protect against unauthorized entry.
Amazon Web Services is constantly auditing its services and has approved to be compliant with the following standards, among others:
- ISO 27001
- ISO 27017
- ISO 27018
- SOC 2
- SOC 3
Your passwords are always encrypted (hashed, with salts) and never saved in plain text. When a user tries to log in, her password is encrypted in the same way and the platform compares the encrypted versions to check if they match. This also means that we cannot recover a password for you (we only hold the encrypted version) and you have to reset your password in case you lose it. For additional security, we enforce a minimum password length when a user signs up.
If your company uses Google, Okta, Active Directory or other SSO providers you can also sign in via a secure connection. In that case, your passwords are not stored on our servers at all. Instead, your users are redirected to a page where they authenticate Localyze as a trusted service and a token gets generated which we can use to identify your users. You can revoke that token at any time via your identity provider account settings.
Localyze is compliant with the latest security standards for data transmission. All communication between your users and our servers is encrypted via TLS (Transport Layer Security). SSL is an industry standard which establishes an encrypted link between a web server and a browser.
Additionally, we employ encryption-at-rest to encrypt all data in our database with the industry-standard AES-256 algorithm. This means that your data is encrypted before and after accessing the database and never lies there in plain text.
We have implemented a security policy that allows us to track, manage and improve the security of our software over time. Additionally to on-demand penetration testing, we made automated penetration testing and vulnerability scans part of our whole delivery circle. This way we can ensure compliance with various standards, among others:ISO 27001 and OWASP Top Ten.
Additionally to this black-box approach, we also deployed an In-App Web Application Firewall (WAF) as well as Runtime Application Self-protection (RASP) for interactive application security testing.
The In-App WAF is a protection layer that operates as a firewall from inside the app using its full context to narrowly apply the most efficient set of inspection rules to incoming traffic.
The RASP is a protection layer that works from within the app's own runtime environment to detect anomalies and protect our app against real-time attacks.
Data protection and the privacy of the users of our Internet pages are of particular concern to us. We therefore undertake to protect your personal data and to collect, process and use it only in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO) and national data protection regulations. The following data protection declaration explains which of your personal data is collected on our websites and how this data is used.

f) Your personal data has been collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Article 8(1) DS-GVO.
If the controller has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged to erase it pursuant to Article 17 (1) DS-GVO, it shall take reasonable measures, including technical measures, having regard to the available technology and the cost of implementation, to inform data controllers which process the personal data that you, as the data subject, have requested that they erase all links to or copies or replications of such personal data.
However, the right to erasure does not exist if the processing is necessary for the following purposes
(a) for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information;
b) for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject, or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
c) for reasons of public interest in the area of public health pursuant to Article 9(2)(h) and (i) and Article 9(3) of the GDPR;
d) for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 (1) DS-GVO, insofar as the right to erasure described above is likely to render impossible or seriously prejudice the achievement of the purposes of such processing; or
e) for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.
4. Right to restriction of processing
You may request the controller to restrict the processing of your personal data if one of the following conditions applies:
(a) the accuracy of your personal data has been contested by you for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of your personal data;
b) the processing is unlawful and you object to the erasure of the personal data and request instead the restriction of the use of your personal data;
(c) the controller no longer needs your personal data for the purposes of the processing but you need it for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; or
d) you have objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) DS-GVO and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate grounds of the controller outweigh yours.
If the processing of your personal data has been restricted, such personal data may - apart from being stored - only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or a Member State.
If you have obtained a restriction of processing under the above conditions, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.
5. Right to information
If you have asserted the rights to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing described above against the controller, the controller shall inform all recipients to whom your personal data have been disclosed of this rectification or erasure of the data or restriction of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.
Upon your request, the controller shall inform you of these recipients.
6. Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. Likewise, you have the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data was provided, provided that
a) the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a DS-GVO or Art. 9 (2) a DS-GVO or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 (1) b DS-GVO and
b) the processing is carried out with the help of automated procedures.
When exercising this right, you also have the right to have your personal data transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible.
The right to data portability does not apply to processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
Likewise, the rights and freedoms of other persons must not be affected by the right to data portability.
7. Right of objection
You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DS-GVO; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The controller will no longer process your personal data unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.
If your personal data is processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.
If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, your personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes.
In connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you may exercise your right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
8. Right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law
You may revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.
9. Automated decision in individual cases including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing - including profiling - which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you.
This does not apply if the decision
a) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the controller,
b) is permissible on the basis of legal provisions of the Union or the Member States to which the controller is subject and these legal provisions contain appropriate measures to protect your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, or
c) is done with your explicit consent.
In the cases referred to in a) and c), the controller shall take reasonable steps to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.
Decisions under a) to c) must not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Article 9(1) of the GDPR, unless Article 9(2)(a) or (g) of the GDPR applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.
10. Right to complain to a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR.
The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 of the GDPR.
