Trust and verify

Compliance is an effective way to validate a service’s trustworthiness. We encourage and expect you to verify that our security practices comply with the most widely accepted standards and regulations like ISO 27001 and SOC 1, 2, and 3. Our independent third-party auditors test our controls and provide their reports and opinions — which we share with you whenever possible.

Our commitment

You own your data, and whether it’s your personal or work information, we’re committed to keeping it private. Our privacy policy clearly describes how we handle and protect your information. We publish a transparency report and our government data requests principles to share how often we receive, scrutinize, and respond to these requests, and we also try to reform laws to make them more protective of your privacy.
