These third parties have access to your Personal Information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.
Globeport is committed to the principles of privacy by design and the security of your Personal Information is of critical importance to us. However, please remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage can ever be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. As such we make no warranties as to the level of security afforded to your data, except that we will always act in accordance with the relevant UK and EU legislation.
The majority of information exchanged by the Globeport Service is protected with end to end encryption with a few exceptions. These include avatar data, user, portal and entity metadata and data packets explicitly shared publicly. Any other non encrypted data fields are clearly indicated by the user inferface. Globeport is a hybrid social network and messaging platform. Private information is held in transit until messages are delivered. Messages in transit are encrypted by the Signal messaging protocol, details of which can found on the Globeport website. The Signal protocol provides end to end encryption with perfect forward secrecy. This prevents access to information held in transit by Globeport or by any other requesting 3rd party. Access to platform metadata is protected by Globeport's strict internal data access policies. At present, encryption keys and data packets are transferred to Globeport's cloud storage for the purpose of backup and data synchronisation. This backup data is encrypted using keys known only to the user. In future, users will be able to select an alternative cloud storage provider to provide this functionality.
We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services.
