Frequently Asked Questions
Does Datahug read or store the contents of my emails?
No. Datahug only uses the 'header' information of an email (i.e. the From, To, CC, Date, and Message ID fields). This is just like reading the outside of an envelope and ignoring the contents inside.
Can I mark relationships as private?
Yes. All users can mark any of their relationships as private and exclude them from search results.
Who has access to the data?
Your data is private to your company and is only accessible to other members of your private Datahug network. Your network administrator controls who can access your Datahug network.
Who owns the data?
Datahug is a data processer and customer data is at all times owned and controlled by the customer (i.e. the Data Controller). Statistical relationship data such as the Hugrank is generated by the Datahug service and is provided to the customer as part of the Datahug service..
Where is the data located?
Datahug has partnered with leading cloud data provider Amazon to store and process data. These data centres provide best-in-class physical and firewall security techniques. All data is automatically backed up each day.
