Privacy & Security

We take spreadsheet security serious. Spreadsheets can sometimes contain sensitive information, but it is still vital to validate them, especially in the case of important spreadsheets. All data traffic is transferred over a secure connection. We use SSL and an external signing company to verify the validity of any connection to PerfectXL. All spreadsheets and web requests are transferred over HTTPS to ensure integrity and authenticity. Gone is gone, when you delete your files they are completely removed from our servers.
