How we store and secure information we collect
Information storage and security
We use technical measures to secure your data. Data exchanged with the website is transmitted over SSL.
While we implement safeguards designed to protect your information, no security system is impenetrable and due to the inherent nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that data, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our systems or otherwise in our care, is absolutely safe from intrusion by others.
How long we keep information

We also retain some of your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, to resolve disputes, to enforce our agreements, to support business operations, and to continue to develop and improve our Services.
User Files: All user-uploaded files as well as the processed output files will be permanently deleted after upload or processing respectively. We store the files for the sole purpose of giving you enough time to process and download them. No backups are made of these files. We don’t access your files without your explicit permission.
User Public Shared Files: You can choose to share processed output files with others, using our "Sharing" features (such as sharing them by email or by generating a public link). When a public link is generated for a shared file, we make a copy of the file and store it for the lifetime of the shared link. Anyone who has the shared link can access the shared files. The access link and the shared files will be permanently deleted automatically, 7 days after being shared.
Files shared with Support: You can choose to share files with Sejda Support, via the website, via email or other communication channels. We store a copy of these files for the sole purpose of troubleshooting application errors and delete them after an unspecified period of time.
