Aluma is designed to have as little of your data as possible for the shortest time possible. Documents are only passed to the service while they are actively being processed, usually only for a few seconds, and are then immediately deleted.
Data never stored on disk
We strictly limit the number of your documents that can be within the service at any time. During processing, document files are stored securely and only in memory, never to disk.
Aluma is hosted in Google Cloud Platform data centres. These offer state-of-the-art physical and logical security for the servers and related infrastructure that comprise the operating environment for the aluma service.
All the data centres we use are secured and monitored 24/7, and physical access is strictly limited to select Google staff with multiple biometric controls.
Here are some of the extra steps we take to ensure your data is secure.
