We try to protect this data as much as possible by utilizing secure coding practices, and by making sure that updates to vital system packages are always applied from the operating system vendor that we happen to use.
Passwords are stored in hashed format, which means that we cannot retrieve your plaintext password from the database. Instead, when you enter your password, we compare its hash with the stored hash to check its validity. When you forget your password, we cannot tell you old your password, but you can set a new one.
Connections to the web site and API parts are protected via SSL (Secure Socket Layer) HTTP connection ("HTTPS"), so that the data is not sent in plain text over the network.
The code running this web service is open source, and can be audited by independent third parties. We are grateful for any improvement suggestions, and will try to integrate improvement suggestions as quickly as possible.
