Our goal is to give all our stakeholders confidence that we have world class IT security policies and procedures across the business.

EU-US Privacy Shield
We operate across the globe and serve customers in the United States and The European Union, CaféX is registered under The Department of Commerce EU-US Privacy Shield for the EU. Our policy can be found here .
CaféX Communications are committed to ensuring the security and protection of the personal information that we process, and to provide a compliant and consistent approach to data protection. We have always had a robust and effective data protection program in place which complies with existing law and abides by the data protection principles. However, we recognise our obligations in updating and expanding this program to meet the demands of the GDPR.
CaféX are dedicated to safeguarding the personal information under our remit and in developing a data protection regime that is effective, fit for purpose and demonstrates an understanding of, and appreciation for the new Regulation. Our preparation and objectives for GDPR compliance have been summarised in this statement and include the development and implementation of new data protection roles, policies, procedures, controls and measures to ensure maximum and ongoing compliance.

HIPPA Through the business asscioate agreement (BAA)
To comply with the requirements of HIPAA in the US, CaféX Communications executes a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) with HIPAA-covered entities in the Health and Medical services industry. The BAA certifies that CaféX Communications protects personal health information (PHI) in accordance with HIPAA guidelines. In support of the BAA, CaféX protects customer data in the following ways:
Data in transit (e.g., the chat between a patient and the medical facility) is encrypted using TLS 1.2 with 128-bit AES encryption
Data at rest (e.g., stored chat transcript) is encrypted using 192-bit AES
Note that customers cannot control the security keys being used to encrypt/decrypt data. This is done to ensure that security keys are not inadvertently exposed/revealed. Also, the keys used to encrypt the data at rest are broken up into multiple parts and each part is stored in a different location within the Cloud solution.
This method of key storage prevents someone from hacking or accessing a single location and retrieving the key to decrypt an account's data.
