  • Client information stored in the cloud is encrypted at rest with our organizational keys. ActivTrak employees do not have access to this information unless temporarily granted by the customer for troubleshooting.
  • User access is highly restricted, must be approved by an organizational admin you designate.

Customers personal information

Today, people are rightly concerned about how their personal information is used and shared. Organizations have a responsibility in helping people understand their own activity and the activity of their employees. ActivTrak technology empowers organizations to identify behavioral trends and gain insight into human work behavior on digital devices in the workplace. ActivTrak strongly encourages our customers to be transparent with the users of their digital systems and inform them that they will have their activity monitored. The intent of monitoring an organization’s employees is to better understand how to increase organizational productivity, strengthen cyber defenses, and lift employee engagement.

We take reasonable precautions to protect Customers Personal Information in our possession from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. We will make reasonable efforts to keep your Personal Information reliable for its intended use, accurate, current and complete. As necessary, we will take additional precautions regarding the security of particularly sensitive information, such as credit card information. While we strive to secure your Personal Information, we cannot warrant or guarantee that this information will be protected under all circumstances, including those beyond our reasonable control.

Credit cards

ActivTrak never stores credit card details associated with your account. All credit card information is collected and processed by a third-party, PCI compliant payment processor. Your card information is passed directly to them, meaning your credit card information never touches our servers.
