  6. All data transferred between client (browser and web app) and server(s) are encrypted with the HTTPS Protocol.
  7. We have full access to all data stored in database(s) and server(s). The purpose of this is primarily to provide customer support, in particular when trying to emulate a specific usage situation when troubleshooting. Data will be accessed “on an as-needed basis”.
  8. All static data (e.g. pictures, videos, files etc.) uploaded to the GoBoat file archive, which is stored in the Amazon S3 service environment connected to the Amazon CDN Service are neither encrypted nor password protected. Therefore we recommend password protecting all sensitive documents.
  9. Files that are manually chosen to be password protected within our service are encrypted and are under no circumstances available to us.


  1. GoBoat runs a backup of all databases and files on shared drives every night. The backup is stored on an internal server and partly on an external data centre.
  2. We perform the following types of backup:
    • Backup rolling. This method takes a daily backup of all file and data updates and creates a backup of all the new data. This creates a history of changes, thus increasing the ability to recover lost data.
    • Backup clone. This backup strategy creates a perfect copy of each device on the network.
    • Backup offsite. This backup ensures data loss if backup is stored on site. All data and files are backed up and backup stored offsite.
  3. All backup data and files are overwritten at 30-day intervals. It is not technically possible to completely delete individual files on a backup before such overwriting occurs. That is, if you have asked GoBoat for deletion of your Personal Data, such personal data will be deleted in the live environment, but will remain on backup until the specific backup is overwritten after 30 days. However, GoBoat has introduced internal processes and procedures to ensure that your Personal Data is not reintroduced as live data by reloading data and files from a backup if your data has been deleted according to your “right to be forgotten.”
