Protecting your personal data is and always has been at the core of everything we do. This privacy statement explains what personal data we collect from you and how we use that data.
Providing the services you expect requires that we collect a limited amount of personal data. We need this data to make our products work for you.
You provide your name, email address, and company name when you purchase our software. You may also optionally provide a physical address and your job title, or assign a different license manager, for which you’ll fill in the name and email address. We use this information to create user accounts, activate subscriptions, purchase or renew licenses and to provide technical and sales support at your request. For example, names are used in our correspondences to update you when new releases are out or to notify you that your subscription is going to expire. Your company information is used to create invoices for billing purposes.
The Office Timeline add-in is a desktop plugin for PowerPoint. It does not collect, store, or process any personally identifiable information from users, nor does it collect or store any project or timeline data. For instance, if 1 purchaser buys licenses for 50 add-in users, Office Timeline will have only the data provided by that 1 purchaser on the website; we will not collect personal information from all 50 users. To help improve and optimize Office Timeline, it does collect anonymous usage data in a form that does not personally identify you. This data is consolidated with other usage data and is limited to system information on how the application is set up and how the application is being used. You can opt out of submitting this data in the settings menu at any time.
Office Timeline Online is a web-based timeline maker. To be able to save users’ timelines in the cloud, Office Timeline Online collects and stores timeline data. This data is secured and encrypted, being visible only to the user, who can fully control further access to it if they choose to share a timeline with others. The web app does not collect, store or process any personally identifiable information that was not provided by the purchaser, license administrator or user on the website. For instance, if 1 purchaser buys licenses for 50 web app users, Office Timeline will have only the data provided by the purchaser during checkout. When assigning licenses to the 50 users, the license manager will fill in the email addresses of said users, which are used to create an account on the platform and send important notifications. Office Timeline Online will also collect anonymous usage data in a form that does not personally identify you. This data is consolidated with other usage data and is limited to system information on how the application is being used.
There are a few other pieces of data we need to optimize your experience and comply with regulations. For example, cookies enable us to localize your settings and save those preferences. IP addresses provide geographical information that is used to help us comply with your country’s tax reporting regulations. Machine IDs are collected from customers who activate our desktop software so we can ensure licenses work correctly.
Privacy is important to us, and we are committed to securing your personal data and empowering your privacy. Our data protection and privacy strategy is built on a framework made up of these fundamental customer data protection pillars.
If you have any questions about our licensing policies, privacy statement, or terms & conditions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at .
Our business runs on our software. We depend on it to manage software development sprints, roadmaps, IT projects and for all cross-organization planning. We also use it to communicate with external teams, clients, executives and other important stakeholders. As such a heavy consumer of Office Timeline ourselves, we understand how important the security of our software is to our customers.
We have focused on implementing a holistic and comprehensive security discipline across all parts of our business. The following Security FAQ will provide information on how we practice security across our business. It will cover:
To help deliver the software and services our customers require, we work with a small group of trusted vendors. Each of these vendors – such as Stripe or Microsoft Azure – have been carefully selected for meeting a high-standard of security. Our Security FAQ does not address the security practices of these vendors. For a list of our trusted vendors and links to their security pages, please see our privacy statement.
Depending on the type of license they purchase, some Office Timeline users will set up user accounts. These users will set their password at registration from our website or inside the Office Timeline Online app, and they have several options to change it if needed:
Yes. The minimum password security requirements we enforce are:
Additionally, the user interface provides a strength meter that presents the reliability of their chosen password based on length and the character classes included. The password is encrypted in our database using 256-bit encryption.
We use SSL/TLS for communication channel encryption, and we are protected against XSS (cross-site scripting) attacks. In addition, customer data & credit card data are validated in a Stripe plugin for an additional layer of security.
Yes. Our technical security expert maintains the security coding standards, which are applied by developers, testers, and team leaders when uploading code on the repository. Every team receives ongoing training on security code policies.
We have a testing process for the source code (including automated tests, unit and integration tests and automated source code analysis tools), which is used, reviewed and maintained constantly by our developers and security manager. This process gives testing requirements the same priority as functional requirements in development cycles, so we can quickly identify any risks early.
Yes. Our website uses the default mechanism from ASP.NET Core (anti-forgery token) against Cross-Site Scripting attacks. This mechanism is the safest method currently available for web applications.
Yes. We have a comprehensive internal audit system which logs all application events containing data related to users, orders, payments, invoices, emails, etc. These logs, along with errors, are saved, tracked and reported (on website and by email) via alerting and error tools from Kibana and Rollbar.
We use the data protection code base package Microsoft.AspNetCore.Cryptography.KeyDerivation. It includes the default hashing algorithm from .NET Core (HMAC-SHA1, 128-bit salt, 256-bit subkey) which is to protect passwords, tokens, and other data in our system.
Yes. Both the Office Timeline Online app and the main website are accessible over HTTPS, and the communication channel is encrypted with SSL/TLS, to provide high levels of integrity and confidentiality.
We have defined and provisioned a suite of security related alerts that are triggered via Microsoft Azure’s monitoring service. For example, these events include website crashes, database availability, CPU/memory load threshold, or other services down alerts. Our administrators and security managers are notified by email and SMS whenever an alert is triggered.
No. Our customer data has been safely protected since our company’s formation, and we are working hard to keep it safe.
Yes. We use Microsoft Azure's Web Application Firewall (WAF) and DDoS Protection to stop network and application layer attacks at the edge, as well as to control, log, filter and block traffic to our backend. In addition, we have a process in place to ensure only authorized personnel can access it. We also utilize network zoning to provide an additional layer of security – where each edge component is in its own network, and the internal networks communicate through VPN, allowing only desired traffic through.
Yes. Customer-sensitive data and the application credentials, SSL certificates, and encryption keys are managed, stored, and transmitted securely through the Azure Management Portal in adherence to Azure Data Security and Encryption Best Practices. Additionally, access to the management portal is restricted and requires specific permission, which is logged and recorded in a secure manner.
All our networks leverage Azure's advanced security services, which include protection against Man-in-the-middle attacks such as Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) and Flooding. As an additional layer of security, networks can only be accessed through user authentication with strong password requirements.
Our data center provider is Microsoft Azure, which meets a broad range of international and industry-specific compliance standards, from ISO27001, HIPAA, and FedRAMP, to SOC 1 and SOC 2. Rigorous third-party audits verify Azure's adherence to the strict security controls mandated by these standards. Azure's compliance reports are available on Microsoft's Service Trust Portal.
Yes. All data is saved in the cloud and it is backed up every minute using Azure cloud back-up services. Our back-up and recovery architecture uses geo-redundant storage (RA-GRS) to ensure that the backups are preserved even if the data center is unavailable. Backups are automatically kept for 35 days.
Yes. We back up regularly and store these back-ups with Azure. Additionally, we regularly back up to removable media, which are stored at off-site facilities. All backup data is encrypted.
Azure is composed of globally distributed datacenters that are strictly controlled to reduce risk of unauthorized users gaining physical access. We do not have physical access to them.
Yes. We have a business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) process that covers disaster recovery procedures and best practices to ensure business continuity. It addresses disruptions in the service we provide customers, to keep our applications running during unplanned downtimes. Additionally, it leverages Azure recovery services (auto-healing, auto-restart servers, machine replication, geo replication etc.) to ensure business recoverability during outages.
Backups are done automatically through Azure and retained for 35 days. Additionally, we back up data offsite – these backups are automatic as well. As for restoration, this is done manually by authorized staff.
Yes. Depending on the severity of the business disruption, we may send notifications explaining the issue and letting users know the impact, restoration times and any temporary alternative solutions. To ensure maximum visibility, such notifications may also be posted on all our social media channels.
No, we haven't experienced any major disruptions.
Yes. We have a dedicated security professional who oversees secure architecture and practices, and we have a technical security expert who is responsible for specific, code-related data and secure software development processes. Both receive ongoing information security training and stay current with the latest technologies, and threats, applicable to our applications.
Our development and delivery process is based on the Agile methodology. We use Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery for our build and release process to ensure that we can deploy changes quickly and in a sustainable way. Our teams work in iterations and cycle through processes of planning, design, development, testing and deployment, and tasks are adjusted as the situation demands. This practice allows us to detect problems early, reduce risks, and easily adapt to changes in requirements.
Development teams create unit and integration tests and also perform manual testing for code changes before deploying to a Development server. Then, the testers create and execute automated and manual tests on both the Development and Testing servers. When the testing teams certify and approve code changes, they are deployed to a Staging server and re-tested simulating a Live environment. The final phase is to swap Staging with Live and re-test in the Live environment.
We have a managed development process. When a developer has finished working on a task, that work is submitted for review and approval from a reviewer board. The code will be merged into the main branch (repository) only when the work is approved.
No, real customer data (emails, Stripe customer ID, etc.) is never used for development or testing. We have a mock database which is used for development and testing.
No. Once the testing team certifies and approves code changes, a small group of key DevOps staff follow a carefully managed methodology to deploy new code into production.
Yes, we use tools for automated source-code analysis. These tools are developer productivity extensions for Microsoft Visual Studio that provide continuous code analysis and immediate detection of errors and problems. Our development teams use them to find runtime and compiler errors, code smells, and redundancies as they code. They are also used to scan existing code to ensure compliance with the most current coding standards.
Yes, Office Timeline is SOC 2 compliant. We’ve recently received our SOC 2 Type 1 Report which provides an external audit that demonstrates we are meeting the security commitments we have made to our customers. But it doesn’t end here. Our commitment to security and compliance is a top priority, so we’re constantly investing, working towards achieving our SOC 2 Type 2 attestation in 2023.
To meet this goal, we use Drata’s automation platform to continuously monitor 100+ internal security controls across the organization against the highest possible standards. Automated alerts and evidence collection allows us to confidently prove our security and compliance posture any day of the year, while fostering a security-first mindset and culture of compliance across the organization.
