Security & Hosting

At OfficeAccord, we take the security of your data very seriously. We exceed industry standards to ensure your data is protected.

Our Security

Protecting our customers’ information and their users’ privacy is extremely important to us. OfficeAccord is a cloud-based software hosted on Microsoft Azure. Some of the largest companies in the world use Microsoft Azure.

All client data is kept strictly confidential, is never shared, and can be added and deleted by you – our client. All management of client data is designed to provide the most secure and confidential experience possible.  File content is never shared, and all backups are encrypted and performed solely for the purpose of disaster recovery.  Content or files deleted by the client are automatically expired from OfficeAccord’s data base and backups during the next backup cycle (usually every 24 hours.)

Your content belongs to you. OfficeAccord does not share or sell your data to any third party providers.  Furthermore, each client is provided an independent instance of the OfficeAccord tool with their own individual database and file storage.

In accordance with GDPR requirements around security incident notifications, OfficeAccord will continue to meet its obligations and offer contractual assurances.

Our Hosting

We chose Microsoft Azure because they share our concern for your security and data sovereignty.

We host with Microsoft Azure’s hosting environment

OfficeAccord is a cloud-based software hosted on Microsoft Azure’s cloud hosting infrastucture. Some of the largest companies in the world use our same hosting provider.

EU-U.S. Privacy Shield

We have partnered with Microsoft because “Microsoft was proud to become the first global cloud service provider to appear on the Department of Commerce’s list of Privacy Shield certified entities as of August 12, 2016.” 

One of the biggest questions surrounding international data transfer is where your data is housed when it is within the Microsoft Azure hosting environment. Microsoft ensures data remains in a country’s associated geographic region and copies, for redundancy, never leave said geographic reason.  To learn more about where your data is located, see our Privacy Policy

In addition, we offer European Union Model Clauses, also known as Standard Contractual Clauses, to meet adequacy and security requirements for our customers who operate in the E.U.
