It's Complicated was developed during a day and age when people have begun taking the question of data privacy and security seriously. Therefore we haven't had to adapt our platform to GDPR and encryption standards, but have proper security principles built into it from the start. At the core of It's Complicated is an understanding of how important it is to be able to exchange personal thoughts in a private, secure space.
All video calls made through It's Complicated are encrypted with Advanced Encryption Standards (AES), and all visits are encrypted, whether you use a desktop computer or your mobile device. This allows you to safely use It's Complicated for video calls even if you are connected to wifi from an open, public hotspot.
At the beginning of each session, our system will create random keys for encryption and will change them regularly during the conversation to maintain the highest level of security imaginable.
On our platform, we use SSL certificates to create an encrypted connection between the user and the platform, which ensures that, for example, when you write a message, update a journal, write a note, change your profile or hold a video call, all data will be sent over a secure protocol.
All stored data is encrypted and stored in our data centers on several different levels. The more barriers and different systems we have created between the outside world and your data, the more secure they are.
In addition, all our data is stored on servers in Europe, where our processes are fully compliant with all GDPR rules.
