Security, How secure is my content.  

It's an important question and we take security seriously at Brandkit.  Our security features are designed to cover your security and privacy requirements.

IP Protection

Terms of use, Privacy policy, Asset Licences, Brand Guidelines and Usage Instructions which users must agree to comply with whenever using or sharing your assets ensures compliance and you can always access an audit trail of who accessed what, when and the users intended use.

  • Every account by default has a standard Brandkit Terms of use, Privacy Policy and Cookies Policy. You can review these here:
  • Every account can also write their own custom version of these policies - and we respect your right to use your own legal folks to write those policies.
  • Every account has a standard copyright and customisable statement.
  • Every account has the configurable option of adding Brand Guidelines and having these automatically attached to downloads of assets.
  • Every account has the option of adding Usage instructions at the Asset level.
  • Every account by default requires acceptance of terms when users Register or accept and Invitation to Register.
  • Every account by default requires acceptance of terms whenever users download or share assets.

Screenshot above shows a standard Download dialogue (used by client account Tourism NZ), where (1) the user is asked to provide answers to Intended Use questions, (2) is reminded about Licencing and Usage, An expiry date for use (if applicable) and (3) is asked to confirm acceptance of Terms of use (already accepted upon registration).

All this is recorded and available in Reports.

Safe Storage

Our cloud-based solution uses the world's number one cloud infrastructure partner, Amazon Web Services (aka AWS); renowned for not only high reliability and redundancy, but also for using the highest possible data security measures and trusted by corporations and governments around the world.

See this AWS page for a description of the advantages of AWS infrastructure when it comes to security: https://aws.amazon.com/security/

Privacy

We're dedicated to privacy of user data and include a standard Privacy Policy across all accounts by default.

You can see our standard Privacy Policy here: https://demo.brandkit.io/pages/terms

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) protects European Union data subjects' fundamental right to privacy and the protection of personal data. It introduces robust requirements that will raise and harmonize standards for data protection, security, and compliance.

Brandkit will comply with the GDPR when it becomes enforceable on May 25, 2018.

In addition to our own compliance, AWS is committed to offering services and resources to our customers to help them comply with GDPR requirements that may apply to their activities.

Access Controls

Configurable User Roles and Permissions define what each user can see and do. 

Example from NZ Story (NZ Government) shown above.


Users Login via, a standard validated email & password combo (SFA) or, via single sign-on (SSO) with options for integration with Azure Active Directory, Microsoft, Google or Facebook credentials, keeping it simple for users, but giving you full control.

Note: Given that the primary purpose for most of our customers is the creating a brand kit or visual library (i.e. a media outlet) whose purpose is to encourage use of official brand and content assets, we keep the registration and password requirements simple and flexible. 

More draconian measures such as forcing password resets and minimum length or format passwords, would put barriers in the way for many users (who visit maybe only once or twice). For Enterprises who want these controls, SSO integrated with your cloud ready authentication services (such as Azure Active Directory from Microsoft, Google etc) is available.

Happy branding :)
