1 Shall my clients be afraid of beacons?

The security of clients’ data does not depend on whether we installed beacons or not, but on how we care about the security of our databases. If it hasn't threaten our clients so far, when we send mailings or SMS promotions, now that we will use beacons nothing will change. Beacons do not collect any personal data. The only thing they do is sending to the application it’s ID number and information about how close to beacon client is (basically signal strength). These are the encrypted data, that can be read only by appropriate software, and only if your client has given us his permission.

3 Do Synerise Beacons include some security mechanisms?

Yes, our beacons are equipped with following defence mechanisms: Secure Shuffling (they can repeatedly change their identifiers to protect against piggybaking or cloning your device), Secure Communication (all the communication between your beacons and devices is encrypted, this means that beacons can’t be hijacked) and Software Lock (the information is protected by a software lock on the device itself, so beacon can’t be cracked).

6 Are your employees instructed regarding data protection?

All employees are instructed on their obligations regarding data protection and confidentiality. Moreover, they regularly receive in-house and external training. Also, we keep an eye on our data-protection standards to make them continuously up-to-date. If it's necessary we change them and update internal information policy of our company, to make sure, that our employees are well trained in case of data security.

8 How do you use personal information?

We do not use for our own purposes clients' personal data. The User is a database owner. We just provide the system and its logic. We do not disclose personal data. The data is encrypted.

9 Do you guarantee 100% security all of the time?

We use commercially reasonable measures to protect the security of the personal information that we collect or receive from unauthorized access, alteration, or destruction. Please be aware that despite our best efforts, there is no data security measures that can guarantee 100% security all the time.
