Only in accordance with the GDPR and if the precise conditions of Article 44 et seq. of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) have been met will any data transfers to nations that are not members of the European Union or the European Economic Area take place. A transfer specifically calls for a written contract between Spark and any subcontractor that ensures at least the same degree of data protection as required by standard contractual clauses (SCCs) set forth by the European Commission.
Your passwords are never kept in plain form and are always encrypted (hashed with salts). When a user attempts to log in, the platform encrypts their password in a similar manner, and then compares the encrypted versions to see whether they match. Also, as we only have access to the encrypted form of the password, we are unable to retrieve it for you; instead, you must reset it if you lose it. When a user registers up, we impose a minimum password length for added protection.
Encryption of data
Our servers and your users’ communications are always SSL-encrypted. The industry-standard security method for creating an encrypted link between a web server and a browser is SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). This connection guarantees the privacy and integrity of all information transmitted between the web server and browsers. Millions of websites utilize SSL, a widely accepted industry standard, to secure their online transactions with clients.
Moreover, we use the industry-standard AES-256 technique to encrypt all of the data in our database using encryption-at-rest. This indicates that your data is never stored in the database in plain text and is always encrypted both before and after access.
