Data localization and segregation
Data localization laws restrict the processing of certain types of data, including personal data, sensitive personal data (e.g. health records), banking data, and government-related information outside the country of origin.
AppXite Platform aggregates multiple types of data, including the user data, billing, and subscription data, and other information required to provide our product. Whereas most of the data processed by AppXite does not fall under the data localization regimes, the user data that we collect is regarded as personal data.
AppXite has implemented the set of legal and technical measures to help our customers to meet the privacy and data residency requirements.
- The framework of data processing agreements and Standard Contractual Clauses to ensure the application of the common privacy safeguards for customer data.
- Ability to segregate data across different regions upon customer’s request.
