We Prioritise Your Security

At Famly we prioritise security in everything we do. We not only do what is necessary from a legal and regulatory perspective but go beyond that by further securing our operational setup and our apps.

This page describes just some of the measures we take internally as well as how our server operator, Amazon Web Services, goes the extra mile to keep your data secure.

Infrastructure & Backup

Famly’s setup runs on infrastructure in Frankfurt, Germany and is so secure that it is used by governments, healthcare, payment and financial service providers.

We make sure that our customers’ and users’ data is safe at all times both in transit and at rest.

Famly’s data is stored in an industry standard AES-256 encrypted database. The data is synched securely between multiple zones in Frankfurt for high durability and availability.

The database is also backed up fully once a day, every day. In between these, we keep a by-the-second incremental backup.

EU Compliant
