Security Policy

This information security policy describes how Seaflux is committed to ensuring your information is secure.

Seaflux Application

Our commitment to your information security

We maintain a secure process for the collection, transmission, and storage of your personal information.

Seaflux suggests that all users keep their browsers up to date to ensure a high level of security is maintained. Old browsers could make it difficult to use modern websites, or could allow malicious websites to read your files, steal passwords, and infect your computer.

Protecting personal information

The Seaflux application is designed to hold some personal information, both of registered users, and individuals such as crew (should these modules of Seaflux be used by you).

This information, when collected, is held securely using Google Firebase Cloud based platform.

Cloud based architecture generally offers better redundancy, availability, and scalability.

What platforms are Sea Flux available on?

Web, iOS app, Android app for both tablet and mobile.

What Hosting service does Sea Flux use?

The web client (which is just static HTML5), is hosted using Netlify.

What technology is Sea Flux built with?

The code base is written in typescript using the React framework and Ionic. The iOS & Android App bridge to native functionality using Ionic Capacitor. Server side functions are built using Google’s Firebase Cloud Based Platform.

How often is the data backed up?

Data is backed up at 3am every day.

How is the Authentication and data managed?

  1. User Authentication is handled using Firebase Authentication.

The only method allowed is email and password. No passwords are stored in the Sea Flux database.

2. Data is managed using Cloud Firestore.

To access or change data in Sea Flux, the user must be authenticated and have the appropriate credentials such as being part of the Licensee account in question and having the specific user permissions required.

Where is the database located?

Sea Flux data is primarily handled by Google’s data centre in Southeast Australia (Sydney).

  1. Files are stored using Cloud Storage for Firebase.
  2. Other functions such as regularly scheduled jobs, functions triggered from data changes and a few other specialised requests are handled by Cloud Functions for Firebase.

All four of these services provided have been certified under major privacy and security standards including:

ISO 27001
ISO 27017
ISO 27018

All requests to load or save data are made over secure connections (HTTPS).

In addition to this, the four services listed above also encrypt their data at ReST.
