Security Practices

Donut for MS Teams is hosted on AWS and benefits from their world-class security. Our website and servers use HTTPS over SSL (TLS 1.3) to protect user data. Donut is built on Ruby on Rails and benefits from the same Rails security that is trusted by industry. Donut is used by Fortune 500, FinTech, and cloud-security companies, among others.

Data Storage & Encryption

We store our application data in Amazon Web Service Relational Database Service (AWS RDS) Postgres. Our DB instances, their automated backups & read replicas are all configured to be encrypted at rest using the industry standard AES-256 encryption algorithm.

Data Retention

Donut does not store any message data that it receives from MS Teams. We store basic information about the users and channels in the Teams that the app is added to.

Data Use

For our matching algorithm, we do not look at or analyze any messages (and we cannot see any messages from channels or teams we are not in).

Privacy Policy

We take user privacy seriously. Terms are outlined here, and our DPA can be found here.
