The security of your data is extremely important to Soverin. Therefore, we took extensive measures to prevent theft, loss or any other abuse of your data. We encrypt all data connections from and to our email servers. Additionally, we use a so-called ‘supercode’, which will be sent to you when you sign up for our service. This supercode can be used in case you forget your password and don’t have access to the phone you used when you signed up for Soverin. The supercode will enable you to sign in and subsequently alter your password and telephone number.

Mandatory data (this data is necessary in order to provide you with our service) - In order to provide the aforementioned services and to provide you with a Soverin account, we need your phone number. - Once we have your phone number you get to choose your own email address. Depending on the email address you choose, this could be considered personal data. - Soverin provides you with an email service. Therefore we manage your email. However, under no circumstances will we ever look into the content of your emails. Optional data - Soverin can supply you with a domain name, linked to your email address. Soverin will administer this domain name for you. Depending on the domain name you choose, this can be considered personal data, for example if you choose a domain name that consists of your name (should you wish to register a domain name with your own name in it).

Does the service allow third-party access to private personal data? No

10/10

Decided May 18, 2020 (revision history). This question accounts for 12% of the final score.

This may come in the form of outright data sharing or by using local third-party analytics software (such as Google Analytics, which collects a plethora of user information).

Note that whether the policy allows sharing aggregated user data does not affect this question.

If the personal data is encrypted when it passes through the third-party, it does not count as third-party access (as the data is inaccessible to that party).

If personal data has been made public by, for example, posting it to a blog, it does not count as private personal information (and is therefore not considered by this question).
