Data security is one of our highest priorities. The Swift Digital server network is hosted in a highly secure data centre in Sydney. The server infrastructure is subject to constant monitoring and maintenance to ensure maximum uptime and reliability. The Swift Digital software platform is robust and secure, with regular penetration testing conducted to ensure it is invulnerable. All data is held under the Australian Privacy Principles. All clients are required to strictly comply with the Spam Act 2003. The use of rental or purchased email lists is prohibited. Swift Digital does not rent or sell email lists.
Data security is a priority
All data collected and stored in your Swift Digital account is done so in accordance with the Australian Privacy Principles. Your data is stored in Australia and is subject to Australian Law.
No client data is ever exposed to third parties except under order of the law, therefore risk should be part of your decision on using non-Australian companies for your internet marketing. For more information please go to Australia Privacy Act.
Data Centre Security
Access to our servers in the data centre is to authorised Swift Digital personnel who have undergone security checks and induction training. Operated to an enhanced Tier III standard the data centre has diverse 33 kV feeds feeding a backup power system consisting of 22 diesel rotary UPS systems. Final distribution to customer suites is in a 2(N+1) configuration. For more information about our secure hosting services go to Global Switch.
Your data is your property
All data in your Swift Digital account is owned by you and Swift Digital treats all your data as private. We do not sell your data, and we do not use the information you collect for our own purposes except in a limited set of circumstances (e.g. if we are compelled to for legal reasons, or if you’ve made this information public).
In order for you to send publications via email, you may upload lists of email addresses to the Swift Digital mail house, in which case Swift Digital acts as a mere custodian of that data. We don’t sell these email addresses and we use them only as directed by you and in accordance with this policy. The same goes for any email addresses collected by you through surveys or subscription forms.
We keep your data securely at an Australian data centre.
Software Penetration Testing
70% of all security breaches are due to vulnerabilities within the web application layer. We conduct penetration testing on our software on a regular basis. We hire independent certified companies, such as PureHacking, to perform security penetration testing from login to data storage within our software and the servers that host it.
Pure Hacking uses state-of-the art security tools to identify design flaws and determine whether our code and/or servers are vulnerable. We can ensure that your data is safe. We also encourage our customers to conduct their own audits and Penetration Tests.
Our staff are fully trained on self auditing and software security.
We do not buy or sell lists
The Spam Act 2003 was introduced to protect Australians from Spam. Compliance means ensuring you communicate with people who have given you permission either by expressly signing up to receive your communications or by doing business with you. Only permission marketing is permitted when using Swift Digital’s services.
