We answer all your questions about document security and our services.
The Internet has made our lives more convenient in many ways. But with that convenience comes a lot of risk. Due to media coverage of these issues, we are sensitive to the threat of data theft and data misuse. We must be good at discerning which websites can and cannot trust our personal data. That's why it's important to us that AmindPDF gives you insight into how we handle your data to assure you the answer to "Is AmindPDF safe?" Yes, it is".
Encrypted & HTTPS
The security of your data is of the utmost importance to us. When you visit our website, you will always have a secure connection. You can verify this by looking for the "https" prefix and padlock symbol in your browser's search bar. This means that the page you are visiting is using a secure data transfer protocol. They encrypt the data you send to this website so outsiders cannot see it. Other sites that may not have this protocol will display "http" pages instead. Depending on your browser, you may see an information icon instead of a padlock. Of course, HTTPS is the minimum standard we set ourselves at AmindPDF, and we use state-of-the-art encryption technology to keep your data safe.
We comply with the globally recognized ISO standard for applicable information security management systems (ISO 27001:2013). That means we have an excellent safety system, make sure it's always running, and are constantly taking steps to improve it. ISO is an international organization whose goal is to create standards in many fields. These standards ensure that products and services are safe, high quality and efficient. ISO operates as an independent non-governmental body, so their processes are not biased or influenced by political interests.
An integral part of our keeping your data secure is the location of the servers on which we process your data. Why is this important, you ask? On the one hand, the server location affects the speed of your requests, and on the other hand, the location determines which legislature it belongs to. For example, servers in the US are subject to the Patriot Act, which makes any data stored in the country technically accessible to the US government. However, our servers are safe and secure in the United States, so they are subject to data laws, which, as we know, are stricter and user-centric.
Your documents are your business, not ours. Our prerogative is to help you do what you set out to do; whether it's shrinking your PDF to send it to others, easily combining different documents into one, or easily converting documents to and from PDFs. To do this, you upload the file to our server and download the result. This means that your file stops on our servers to fulfill your request. However, we will not store your files for more than an hour. During this time, you can download the results and start your day. After that, we will permanently delete your file after an hour of processing.
If you use AmindPDF to log into your client account and use file storage, your files will be available to you on our servers as you see fit. If you delete a file from online storage using Smallpdf, we will delete it from our servers immediately. We do not keep any part of your file after deletion.
Who can see my files?
When you upload a document to AmindPDF, only you can see it. No one but you can view, edit, or otherwise access your files unless you explicitly grant them permission to do so. The aforementioned state-of-the-art SSL encryption and our secure servers keep your data 100% secure. Whether you use Smallpdf to convert or edit your documents, or use your client account to store files, you have complete control over your files and who can view, edit or otherwise access them.
