The ElectionBuddy Service has been servicing elections and voting needs for more than 10 years, and over that time we’ve developed a robust security culture that is managed by ElectionBuddy Inc.. We use industry best practices to ensure that your elections, your voters, and your results are secure.
ElectionBuddy forces HTTPS for all services using TLS (SSL), including our public website and the Dashboard.
We use HSTS to ensure browsers interact with ElectionBuddy only over HTTPS.
ElectionBuddy is PCI DSS compliant. Further, no credit card data is stored on any ElectionBuddy server or database in any format: data is ephemeral in memory. Credit card data is immediately encrypted and transmitted to Stripe, our payment processor. Stripe has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry.
You own all data associated with your account, including election results, ballots and voting records. We provide the service and maintain the integrity of your data. We never purge records during the lifetime of your account. You may export all or part of your data any time in a variety of portable formats, including: XML, CSV and Microsoft Excel.
We run automatic, at-least-daily encrypted backups to ensure your online data is safe and protected.
