We Don't Store your Patents

You are likely already storing your patent documents in the cloud, such as by emailing drafts to clients or using cloud storage within your firm.

We don't. We process your documents in seconds and immediately discard them. We don't store, cache, or log any content of your documents. We process your patents with Google services, and by Google's terms, Google will not access or use your data, except as necessary to provide its services.

Security Practices

We use best practices for security. See below for our grades from several third-party evaluations along with comparisons to other cloud services you may use.

Here are some examples of our security practices:

  • We encrypt communications using both HTTPS and HSTP.
  • We don't store any sensitive information, such as credit card numbers (we rely on established providers of payment services).
  • We use a strong, unique password and two-factor authentication to access our servers.
  • We run on Google Cloud Platform to make sure that our servers have the latest security updates.
  • We run regular penetration tests to vet our security practices. Contact us if you would like see a copy of a recent report.
