9. Data Control and Security

9.1 Data Control

At Bitbar we only process customer’s test result data solely to present the customer with an accurate and valuable test run results. We do monitor customer uploads, runs and results in whole to make sure our service is working correctly.

Customer test run results are their own and nobody else’s while we host them. In addition to the customer and the cloud administrators (Bitbar admins in case of Public Cloud), nobody else has access to user data.

As we provide additional services to our cloud, we continuously seek to implement new security measures to ensure our customers’ data stays safe in our environment.

9.2 Data Security

Because our users generate many data with all the test runs executed, we automatically remove all data older than 120 days. Deleted data is not recoverable.

On Public Cloud setup, users can remove their accounts and all information related to them at any time. While we do our best for securing the public cloud, it still is a shared environment where there can be traces of code from previous users.

On Private Cloud and On-Premise setups we ensure maximum security, these environments are entirely dedicated, controlled and subject to customer’s IT (security) policies. These setups are not affected by GDPR.

9.3 Risk Mitigation and Due Diligence

We are continually improving our service and making sure the data trusted to us by our customers stays safe in our environment. We only use services that on their part also thrive to do the same and seek or already have accreditation for data protection and security measures.

9.4 Breach Notification

Trust and transparency are of the utmost importance for us. If we detect any intrusion to our system, we will first make sure the service is secure for our clients to use, preventing to spread any potential harm, then let our customers know what has happened.
