Soft Track takes data security very seriously. Profile information is stored in a mySQL database and we’ve followed the mySQL recommendations by Symantec.

User passwords are encrypted with SHA-1 and a random 10 character salt. Sessions, where the data is stored while a user is logged in, are also encrypted on Codeigniters Session encryption standards.

Database backups are stored in Amazon S3 and also encrypted, as is their transmission to Amazon upon backup.
