- How we protect your data
We have organisational and technical measures in place to protect your data and secure the information that you provide and we collect. We take steps to ensure personal data collected, held, and processed is kept secure and protected from unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage.
We protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) or TLS (Transport Layer Security) and with Galaxkey software which encrypts information you input with your key. So, we don’t have access to your data that you secure using Galaxkey, only you do and those you give access to.
We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage and disclosure of personal data.
Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we disclose personal data to you.
It is important for you to protect your Galaxkey account against unauthorised access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when you finish using a shared computer.
We also provide free 2 Factor and or Multifactor authentication which we recommend you always use to protect your account and thus your protected Galaxkeyed data. You may not share your password or credentials with anyone, doing so is against our terms of service and will lead to account closure.
It is important to remember that the information you provide on our website is your choice and no transmission is 100% guaranteed secure, especially as it traverses a public network which we have no control over.
Please remember that communications over the internet, such as emails and webmails (messages sent through a website), are not secure unless they have been encrypted. Your communications may go through a number of countries before they are delivered – this is the nature of the internet. We cannot accept responsibility for any unauthorised access or loss of personal data that is beyond our control. If you require better security please use Galaxkey.
You are solely responsible for your credentials, your username and password. Do not share these details and keep them private and secure
If you believe your privacy has been breached, let us know by contacting us immediately at email@example.com.

We may transfer your data if applicable by law. If we have been legitimately asked to provide information for legal or regulatory purposes or as part of legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings.
To operate effectively we may need to transfer data to third parties outside the EEA. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing and processing by us. If we transfer or store your data outside of the EEA, we will ensure that the transfer is subject to appropriate safeguards so that your security and privacy is maintained.
