  • Keep your account passwords private. Remember, anybody who knows your password may access your account.
  • When creating a password, use at least 8 characters. A combination of letters, numbers and symbols is best. Do not use dictionary words, your name, email address, or other personal data that can be easily obtained. We also recommend that you frequently change your password. [You can do this by going to “My Account” and clicking “Change password”].
  • Avoid using the same password for multiple online accounts.


Artive’s services support the latest recommended secure cipher suites and protocols to encrypt all traffic in transit. We monitor the changing cryptographic landscape closely and work promptly to upgrade the service to respond to new cryptographic weaknesses as they are discovered and implement best practices as they evolve. For encryption in transit, we do this while also balancing the need for compatibility for older clients.


We place strict controls over our employees’ access to the data you and your users make available via Artive’s services, and are committed to ensuring that User Data is not seen by anyone who should not have access to it. The operation of Artive’s services requires that some employees have access to the systems which store and process User Data. These employees are prohibited from using these permissions to view User Data unless it is necessary to do so.

All of our employees are bound to our policies regarding User Data and we treat these issues as matters of the highest importance within our company.


The environment that hosts Artive’s services maintains multiple certifications for its data centers, including ISO 27001 compliance, PCI Certification, and SOC reports. For more information about their certification and compliance, please visit the AWS Security website and the AWS Compliance website.


User Data is stored redundantly at multiple locations in our hosting provider’s data centers to ensure availability. We have well-tested backup and restoration procedures, which allow recovery from a major disaster.


In addition to sophisticated system monitoring and logging, we are running Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux)* in enforcing mode. Firewalls are configured according to industry best practices and unnecessary ports are blocked by configuration with AWS Security Groups.


Artive maintains an extensive, centralized logging environment in its production environment which contains information pertaining to security, monitoring, availability, access, and other metrics about Artive’s services.


In the event of a security breach, Artive will promptly notify you of any unauthorized access to your User Data. Artive has incident management policies and procedures in place to handle such an event.


We contract with authorized external security firms who perform regular audits of Artive’s services to verify that our security practices are sound and to monitor our services for new vulnerabilities discovered by the security research community.
