Maintaining your privacy is really important to us. We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting the personal information you share with us.
Protecting your data
We designed Sharktower to be secure from the ground up, and every customer’s project data is stored, accessed and secured independently.
We use Amazon Web Services (AWS) – a scalable cloud hosting platform with high availability and dependability.
All access to Sharktower and information in transit is protected by the latest Transport Socket Layer (TLS) encryption, and also encrypted at REST. This means your data is safe, secure and available only to registered users who have the relevant permissions.

This notice explains how and why we use your personal information – how it is collected, held, and processed. For more information about how we use your data:
