What Automated Tools Do We Use on our Website?

In addition to the information that you provide to us, we may also collect information about you during your visit to our Website. We collect this information using automated tools that are detailed below. These tools may collect information about your behavior and your computer system, such as your internet address (IP Address), the pages you have viewed, and the actions you have taken while using the Website. Some of the tools we use to automatically collect information about you may include:

  1. Cookies. A “cookie” is a small data file transmitted from a website to your device’s hard drive. Cookies are usually defined in one of two ways, and we may use either (or both) of them:

(1) session cookies, which do not stay on your device after you close your browser, and  
(2) persistent cookies, which remain on your device until you delete them, or they expire.

Of course, if you do not wish to have cookies on your devices, you may turn them off at any time by modifying your internet browser’s settings. However, by disabling cookies on your device, you may be prohibited from full use of the Website’s features or lose access to some functionality.

  1. Google Analytics. One of our trusted third parties is Google Analytics. The Website sends aggregated, non-Personal Information to Google Analytics for the purpose of providing us with the ability to conduct technical and statistical analysis on the Website’s performance. For more information on how Google Analytics supports the Website and uses information sent from the Website, please review Google’s privacy policy available at technologies/partner-sites

  1. Web Beacons. A Web Beacon is an electronic image. Web Beacons can track certain things from your computer and can report activity back to a web server allowing us to understand some of your behavior. If you choose to receive emails from us, we may use Web Beacons to track your reaction to our emails. We may also use them to track if you click on the links and at what time and date you do so. Some of the third-party marketers we engage with may use Web Beacons to track your interaction with online advertising banners on our Website. This information is only collected in aggregate form and will not be linked to your Personal Information.  Please note that any image file on a webpage can act as a Web Beacon.

  1. Embedded Web Links. Links provided in our emails and, in some cases, on third-party websites may include tracking technology embedded in the link. The tracking is accomplished through a redirection system. The redirection system allows us to understand how the link is being used by email recipients. Some of these links will enable us to identify that you have personally clicked on the link and this may be attached to the Personal Information that we hold about you. This data is used to improve our service to you and to help us understand the performance of our marketing campaigns.

  1. Third-party Websites and Services. We work with a number of service providers of marketing communications technology. These service providers may use various data collection methods to improve the performance of the marketing campaigns we are contracting them to provide. The information collected can be gathered on our Website and also on the websites where our marketing communications are appearing. For example, we may collect data where our banner advertisements are displayed on third-party websites.

Do I have any choices in selecting preferences for privacy?

Yes. We want to provide you with relevant information that you have requested.

If we provide subscription-based services, such as email newsletters, we will allow you to make choices about what information you provide at the point of information collection or at any time after you have received a communication from us while you are subscribed. Transactional or service-oriented messages are usually excluded from such preferences, as such messages are required to respond to your requests or to provide goods and services, and are not intended for the purposes of marketing.

We will not intentionally send you email newsletters and marketing emails unless you consent to receive such marketing information. After you request to receive these emails, you may opt out of them at any time by selecting the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of each email. Please note that by opting out or unsubscribing you may affect other services you have requested we provide to you, in which email communication is a requirement of the service provided.

Any such communications you receive from us will be administered in accordance with your preferences and this Policy.

How can I make sure my Personal Information is accurate?

We strive to maintain and process your information accurately. We have processes in place to maintain all of our information in accordance with relevant data governance frameworks and legal requirements. We employ technologies designed to help us maintain information accuracy on input and processing.

Where we can provide you access to your Personal Information in our possession, we will always ask you for a username and password to help protect your privacy and security. We recommend that you keep your password safe, that you change it periodically, and that you do not disclose it to any other person or allow any other person to use it.

To view and change the Personal Information that you have provided to us, you can log in to your account and follow the instructions on that webpage, or contact us directly for assistance.

Does the Platform collect information about minors?

We do not intentionally seek to gather information from individuals under the age of eighteen (18). We do not target the Platform to minors, and would not expect them to be engaging with our Platform or services. We encourage parents and guardians to provide adequate protection measures to prevent minors from providing information unwillingly on the internet. If we are aware of any Personal Information that we have collected about minors, we will take steps to securely remove it from our systems.

Are any of the websites linked to the Platform owned by HubSync?

No. This Policy does not apply to websites or other domains that are maintained or operated by third parties or our affiliates. Our Platform may link to third-party websites and services, but these links are not endorsements of these sites, and this Policy does not extend to them. Because this Policy is not enforced on these third-party websites, we encourage you to read any posted privacy policy of the third-party website before using the service or site and providing any information.

Pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1798.83, we will not disclose or share your Personal Information with third parties for the purposes of third-party marketing to you without your prior consent.

Other than as disclosed in this Policy, the Platform does not track users over time and across third-party websites to provide targeted advertising. Therefore, the Platform does not operate any differently when it receives Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals from your internet web browser.

What if I use the Platform outside of the United States?

To provide you with our services, we may store, process, and transmit information in the United States and other locations around the world, including countries that may not have the same privacy and security laws as yours.

Security Overview

Security Summary

HubSync is committed to providing the highest level of security for our clients and their data. As part of this commitment, we have achieved General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and System and Organization Controls (SOC2) compliances, a rigorous third-party audit of our controls and processes related to Security, Availability, and Confidentiality.

  • Security – Controls that protect against unauthorized access, use, disclosure, alteration or damage to systems.
  • Availability – Controls that keep systems operational and available at a level that meets the highest industry standards.
  • Confidentiality – Controls that protect confidential information throughout its lifecycle from collection and processing to disposal.

To maintain our SOC2 and GDPR compliances, we have deployed HubSync with a “security first” focus along with ongoing supporting controls, including:

Security Hosting

We use the most secure cloud computing environment available today – Amazon WebServices (AWS). AWS data centers and networks are architected to protect information, identities, applications, and devices. All data flowing across our platform is encrypted in transit and our databases housing customer data are encrypted at rest. The network is segmented to prevent unauthorized access. This allows us to achieve rigorous security and compliance requirements, such as data residency, protection, and confidentiality.

24/7 Network Operations Center

HubSync has a dedicated team monitoring systems 24/7, so we can quickly detect and resolve any issues that may arise in our production systems. This ensures the availability of our platform at all times. Our team uses the latest monitoring and performance software with automated alerts, robust logging, and real-time dashboards. Our infrastructure is constantly updated with the latest infrastructure and security releases, and auto-scales as usage increases during peak times (e.g., tax busy season).

Infrastructure Durability & Automation

AWS provides scalable hosting composed of AWS Regions and Availability Zones which allow HubSync to utilize multiple data centers across the United States with failover capabilities to ensure uptime and reliability. By using infrastructure as code (IaC) to manage and automate the provisioning and management of our AWS infrastructure, HubSync ensures that our systems are configured consistently, securely and can be scaled across the AWS cloud platform. We use version control to track changes to our infrastructure and regularly review and test our infrastructure automation and failover.

Threat Detection Management

We use the leading provider of threat intelligence and detection services to monitor cyber security threats and block any potential intrusion attempts. We protect our infrastructure perimeter using tools such as AWS Web Application Firewall, AWS Shield and Firewall Manager. Regular vulnerability scanning is performed by our NOC team along with 24/7incident response support.

Penetration Testing

In addition to regular vulnerability scanning, HubSync engages 2x per year with a trusted third party to simulate cyber-attacks and test the resilience of our systems. This helps ensure the security of our platform and the data of our clients. We use techniques such as simulating attacks from various angles and testing all publicly accessible entry points to ensure that our systems are secure. We also utilize code quality tools on a daily basis to ensure our code is secure as we enhance the platform with new features.

Security Training for Employees

We mandate regular security training for all employees to ensure awareness and education of security best practices along with our policies for reporting potential threats. Our training covers the latest threats and vulnerabilities and provides hands-on exercises to help employees and developers apply what they have learned. This helps ensure the security of our platform and client data.

Overall, these measures help us ensure the security, availability, and confidentiality of our platform and client data. A full SOC2 report is available upon request. If you have any questions about the measures we have in place, please don't hesitate to contact us at
