Digivizer Security Statement

We take your and your customer’s security requirements seriously.  Whilst, the majority of data we map to your customer base comes from social platform data held offshore, all our processing and matching to your customer records is performed on servers located in Digivizer’s Sydney office-based datacentre.

All customer data and processing is conducted within a secure, access controlled site with access only being granted to clearly authorized Digivizer technical and application support engineers.

It is secured using industry wide system administration and security best practices. For example, all shell access is via ssh, and password access is explicitly disallowed: we only use public/private key pairs with an RSA key with a minimum length of 2048 bits. 

Customer identification data will be held for the minimum time that suits your commercial needs, and all identifying elements will be destroyed at your request or once we have successfully delivered all required outputs.


Digivizer respects the privacy and usage settings of each individual and community data provider or platform. We encourage our clients to understand, respect and adhere to the privacy and usage policies of each individual, platform or community and should you choose to engage must accept all risks of taking action, that contravenes those policies.

Digivizer adheres to a strict policy for ensuring the privacy of any personally identifiable information (such as full name, address, e-mail address, and/or other identifiable information). We will never share this information with third parties outside Digivizer’s Sydney based datacentre. unless you give express permission for us to do so, or unless we are required to do so under applicable law. 

Data Access

All clients will access Digivizer through our REST API. Client connections are protected using 128bit TLS and if you require the use of client side certificates we can accommodate that. If you require a more flexible approach IPSec is also an option.
