The data centers are functionally independent with distinct and redundant resources and are fully integrated through the provider’s network architecture, which allows for seamless intra-data center capabilities. The company’s highly trained engineers are available to provide onsite, enterprise-class services in the event that a non-automated function is needed.
The data center is SAS 70 Type II Certified and meets industry-recognized requirements for security and reliability. The exhaustive third-party certification assessment includes extensive testing of the control objectives and activities at all data center facilities, with oversight by executive management, operations and customer service, development and information technology organization, human resources policies and procedures, and risk assessment monitoring.

Self-certification and participation in the Safe Harbour framework is entirely voluntary.
Data Backup and Availability
The core database is automatically backed up to an offsite location by an independent solution. Full core data backup is executed daily. The secondary (content) database is also backed up to an independent and secure offsite location once a day.
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and help ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate and reasonable physical, electronic, and administrative procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect and store in our databases. In addition, we use highly restrictive firewalls to help prevent outside parties from accessing our database servers via the Internet, and physical access to the database servers is restricted to authorized individuals.
