Preventing Unauthorized Product Use
Docoholic implements industry standard access controls and detection capabilities for the internal networks that support its products.
Access controls: Network access control mechanisms are designed to prevent network traffic using unauthorized protocols from reaching the product infrastructure. The technical measures implemented differ between infrastructure providers and include
Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) implementations, security group assignment, and traditional firewall rules.
Intrusion detection and prevention: Docoholic implemented a Web Application Firewall (WAF) solution to protect hosted customer websites and other internet-accessible applications. The WAF is designed to identify and prevent attacks against publicly available network services.
Static code analysis: Security reviews of code stored in Docoholic’s source code repositories is performed, checking for coding best practices and identifiable software flaws.

Infrastructure availability: The infrastructure providers use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure a minimum of 99.95% uptime. The providers maintain a minimum of N+1 redundancy to power, network, and HVAC services.
Fault tolerance: Backup and replication strategies are designed to ensure redundancy and fail-over protections during a significant processing failure. Customer data is backed up to multiple durable data stores and replicated across multiple availability zones.
Online replicas and backups: Where feasible, production databases are designed to replicate data between no less than 1 primary and 1 secondary database. All databases are backed up and maintained using at least industry standard methods.
Docoholic’s products are designed to ensure redundancy and seamless failover. The server instances that support the products are also architected with a goal to prevent single points of failure.

The parties agree that any data subject, who has suffered damage as a result of any breach of the obligations referred to in Clause 3 or in Clause 11 by any party or subprocessor is entitled to receive compensation from the data exporter for the damage suffered limited to Subscription amount.
If a data subject is not able to bring a claim for compensation in accordance with paragraph 1 against the data exporter, arising out of a breach by the data importer or his subprocessor of any of their obligations referred to in Clause 3 or in Clause 11, because the data exporter has factually disappeared or ceased to exist in law or has become insolvent, the data importer agrees that the data subject may issue a claim against the data importer as if it were the data exporter, unless any successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the data exporter by contract of by operation of law, in which case the data subject can enforce its rights against such entity. The data importer may not rely on a breach by a subprocessor of its obligations in order to avoid its own liabilities.
If a data subject is not able to bring a claim against the data exporter or the data importer referred to in paragraphs 1 and 2, arising out of a breach by the subprocessor of any of their obligations referred to in Clause 3 or in Clause 11 because both the data exporter and the data importer have factually disappeared or ceased to exist in law or have become insolvent, the subprocessor agrees that the data subject may issue a claim against the data subprocessor with regard to its own processing operations under the Clauses as if it were the data exporter or the data importer, unless any successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the data exporter or data importer by contract or by operation of law, in which case the data subject can enforce its rights against such entity. The liability of the subprocessor shall be limited to its own processing operations under the Clauses.
Mediation and jurisdiction
The data importer agrees that if the data subject invokes against it third-party beneficiary rights and/or claims compensation for damages under the Clauses, the data importer will accept the decision of the data subject:
to refer the dispute to mediation, by an independent person or, where applicable, by the supervisory authority;
to refer the dispute to the courts in the Member State in which the data Importer is established.

The parties agree that the supervisory authority has the right to conduct an audit of the data importer, and of any subprocessor, which has the same scope and is subject to the same conditions as would apply to an audit of the data exporter under the applicable data protection law.
The data importer shall promptly inform the data exporter about the existence of legislation applicable to it or any subprocessor preventing the conduct of an audit of the data importer, or any subprocessor, pursuant to paragraph 2. In such a case the data exporter shall be entitled to take the measures foreseen in Clause 5(b).
The Clauses shall be governed by the law of the Member State in which the data exporter is established.
The parties undertake not to vary or modify the Clauses. This does not preclude the parties from adding clauses on business related issues where required as long as they do not contradict the Clause.
The data importer shall not subcontract any of its processing operations performed on behalf of the data exporter under the Clauses without the prior written consent of the data exporter. Where the data importer subcontracts its obligations under the Clauses, with the consent of the data exporter, it shall do so only by way of a written agreement with the subprocessor which imposes the same obligations on the subprocessor as are imposed on the data importer under the Clauses. Where the subprocessor fails to fulfil its data protection obligations under such written agreement the data importer shall remain fully liable to the data exporter for the performance of the subprocessor’s obligations under such agreement.
The prior written contract between the data importer and the subprocessor shall also provide for a third-party beneficiary clause as laid down in Clause 3 for cases where the data subject is not able to bring the claim for compensation referred to in paragraph 1 of Clause 6 against the data exporter or the data importer because they have factually disappeared or have ceased to exist in law or have become insolvent and no successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the data exporter or data importer by contract or by operation of law. Such third-party liability of the subprocessor shall be limited to its own processing operations under the Clauses.
The provisions relating to data protection aspects for subprocessing of the contract referred to in paragraph 1 shall be governed by the law of the Member State in which the data exporter is established.
The data exporter shall keep a list of subprocessing agreements concluded under the Clauses and notified by the data importer pursuant to Clause 5(j), which shall be updated at least once a year. The list shall be available to the data exporter’s data protection supervisory authority.

Docoholic Security Overview
1 OUR COMPANY AND PRODUCTS
Docoholic is the world’s leading Export, Import Documentation and service platform. Since 2019, Docoholic has been on a mission to make the export Import easy, error free and fast. Today, thousands of customers in more than 10 countries use Docoholic’s software, services, and support to transform the way they manage their shipment and delight customers. Docoholic’s award-winning web applications, enables Exporters and importers teams to have more efficient, error free and reliable operations.The Docoholic products are offered as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions. These solutions are available to customers through purpose-built web applications, application programming interfaces (APIs), and email plugins.2 DOCOHOLIC SECURITY AND RISK GOVERNANCE
Docoholic’s primary security focus is to safeguard our customers’ and users’ data. This is the reason that Docoholic has invested in the appropriate resources and controls to protect and service our customers. This investment includes the implementation of dedicated Enterprise Security and Product Security teams. These teams are responsible for the Docoholic’s comprehensive security program and the governance process. We are focused on defining new and refining existing controls, implementing and managing the Docoholic security framework as well as providing a support structure to facilitate effective risk management. Our Chief Security Assesment Officer, who reports to the Chief Executive Officer, oversees the implementation of security safeguards across Docoholic and its products.3 OUR SECURITY AND RISK MANAGEMENT OBJECTIVES
We have developed our security framework using best practices in the SaaS industry. Our key objectives include:
In order to ensure we protect data entrusted to us; we implemented an array of security controls. Docoholic’s security controls are designed to allow for a high level of employee efficiency without artificial roadblocks, while minimizing risk. The following sections describe a subset of controls. For more information about the Docoholic security program, please check out all the details at Docoholic/security.com
4.1 DOCOHOLIC PRODUCT INFRASTRUCTURE
4.1.1 DATA CENTER SECURITYDocoholic outsources hosting of its product infrastructure to leading cloud infrastructure providers. Principally, the Docoholic product leverages Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) for infrastructure hosting. These solutions provide high levels of physical and network security and well as hosting provider vendor diversity. At present, Docoholic’s AWS cloud server instances reside in US locations; GCP cloud instances reside in Asia Pacific. Both providers maintain an audited security program, including SOC 2 and ISO 27001 compliance. Docoholic does not host any product systems within its corporate offices.
These world-class infrastructure providers leverage the most advanced facilities infrastructure such as power, networking, and security. Facilities uptime is guaranteed between 99.95% and 100%, and the facilities ensure a minimum of N+1 redundancy to all power, network, and HVAC services. Access to these providers’ sites is highly restricted to both physical access as well as electronic access through public (internet) and private (intranet) networks in order to eliminate any unwanted interruptions in our service to our customers.
The physical, environmental, and infrastructure security protections, including continuity and recovery plans, have been independently validated as part of their SOC 2 Type II and ISO 27001 certifications.Certificates are available at the AWS compliance site and Google Cloud Platform security site.
4.1.2 NETWORK SECURITY & PERIMETER PROTECTIONThe Docoholic product infrastructure is built with internet-scale security protections in mind. In particular, network security protections are designed to prevent unauthorized network access to and within the internal product infrastructure. These security controls include enterprise-grade routing and network access control lists (firewalling).
Network-level access control lists are implemented in AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) security groups or GCP firewall rules, which applies port- and address-level protections to each of the server instances in the infrastructure. These firewalling technologies deny unintended traffic by default, and all network traffic is logged and used to inform our monitoring systems (more about that in Section 4.1.4). These network access rules allow for finely grained control of network traffic from a public network as well as between server instances on the interior of the infrastructure. Within the infrastructure, internal network restrictions allow a many-tiered approach to ensuring only the appropriate types of devices can communicate.
Changes in the network security model are actively monitored and controlled by standard change control processes. All existing rules and changes are evaluated for security risk and captured appropriately.
4.1.3 CONFIGURATION MANAGEMENT
Automation drives Docoholic’s ability to scale with our customers’ needs. The product infrastructure is a highly automated environment that flexibly expands capacity and capability as needed.
All server type configurations are embedded in images and Puppet configuration files. Server- level configuration management is handled using these images and configuration scripts when the server is built. Changes to the configuration and standard images are managed through a controlled change management process. Each instance type includes its own hardened configuration, depending on the deployment of the instance.
4.1.4 ALERTING & MONITORING
Not only does Docoholic fully automate its build procedures, we invest heavily in automated monitoring, alerting and response technologies to continuously address potential issues. The Docoholic product infrastructure is instrumented to alert engineers and administrators when anomalies occur. In particular, error rates, abuse scenarios, application attacks, and other anomalies trigger automatic responses and alerts to the appropriate teams for response, investigation, and correction. As unexpected or malicious activities occur, systems bring in the right people to ensure that the issue is rapidly addressed.
Many automated triggers are also designed into the system to immediately respond to foreseen situations. Traffic blocking, quarantine, process termination, and similar functions kick in at pre-defined thresholds to ensure that the Docoholic platform can protect itself against a wide variety of undesirable situations.
The power behind Docoholic’s ability to detect and respond to anomalies is our 24x7x365 monitoring program and extensive logging. Our systems capture and store logs that include all the technologies that comprise our products. At the application layer, all logins, page views, modifications, and other access to Docoholic portals are also logged. In the infrastructure back-end, we log authentication attempts, horizontal and vertical permission changes, infrastructure health, and requests performed. among many other commands and transactions. Logs and events are monitored in real time and events are escalated immediately at any hour of the day to developers, security professionals, and engineers to take appropriate action.
4.1.5 INFRASTRUCTURE ACCESSEntire categories of potential security events are prevented with a stringent, consistent, and well- designed access control model. Along those lines, access to Docoholic’s systems is strictly controlled. Docoholic employees are granted access to corporate services, Docoholic product infrastructure based on their jobs, using a role-based access control model. More information about Docoholic’s RBAC model across the company is available in section 4.3.
For access to infrastructure tools, servers, and similar services, access is minimized to only the individuals whose jobs require it. For emergency access and access to administrative functions, Docoholic’s system use a Just-In-Time-Access (JITA) model in which users can request access to privileged functions for a limited duration.
Users are assigned the privileges to make JITA requests by business unit and team. When non- standard, emergency access is needed, like sudo access on a Linux server, the user makes a JITA request. The JITA request is logged, and logs are continuously monitored for anomalous requests. Access to the privileged function is granted, and the person can go about his or her work.
Additionally, direct network connections to product infrastructure devices over SSH or similar protocols is prohibited, and engineers are required to authenticate first through a bastion host or "jump box" before accessing QA or production environments. Server-level authentication uses user-unique SSH keys and token-based two factor authentication.
4.2 APPLICATION PROTECTION
4.2.1 WEB APPLICATION DEFENSES
As part of its commitment to protecting customer data and websites, Docoholic implemented an industry recognized Web Application Firewall (WAF). The WAF automatically identifies and protects against attacks aimed at the Docoholic products or customer sites hosted on the platform. Docoholic’s WAF protects Docoholic platform access (e.g., the features you can access by browsing to yourcompany.docoholic.com or integrating with APIs. Additionally, all customer content hosted on the platform is also automatically protected. The rules used to detect and block malicious traffic are aligned to the best practice guidelines documented by the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) in the OWASP Top 10 and similar recommendations. Protections from Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are also incorporated, helping to ensure that customers’ sites and other parts of the Docoholic products are available continuously.
4.2.2 DEVELOPMENT & RELEASE MANAGEMENT
One of Docoholic’s greatest advantages is a Efficient, fast feature set, and we provide constantly improving products through a modern continuous deployment continuous delivery approach to software development. New code is proposed, approved, merged and deployed thousands of times every week. Code reviews and quality assurance are performed by specialized teams of engineers with intimate knowledge of the Docoholic platform as it is developed. Approval is controlled by designated repository owners. Once approved, code is automatically submitted to Docoholic’s continuous integration environment where compilation, packaging and unit testing occur. If all passes, the new code is deployed automatically across the application tier.
All code deployments create archives of existing production-grade code in case failures are detected by post-deploy hooks. The deploying team manages notifications regarding the health of their applications. If a failure occurs, roll-back is immediately engaged.
As part of the continuous deployment model, we use extensive software gating and traffic management to control features based on customer preferences (private beta, public beta, full launch). Major feature changes, are communicated through in-app messages
Newly developed, built code is first deployed to the dedicated and separate Docoholic QA environment for the last stage of testing before being promoted to production. Network-level segmentation prevents unauthorized and undesirable access between QA and production environments. Customer data is never used by Docoholic in the QA environment, nor does any other testing use customer data.
4.2.3 VULNERABILITY SCANNING, PENETRATION TESTING, & BUG BOUNTIESThe Docoholic Security team manages a multi-layered approach to vulnerability scanning, using a variety of industry-recognized tools to ensure comprehensive coverage of our technology stack. We perform hundreds of vulnerabilities scanning and penetration testing activities against ourselves on a continuous basis. We perform vulnerability scanning continually against our internal networks, applications, and corporate infrastructure. Network-based and application-level vulnerability scans run at least every month to ensure that we detect and respond to the latest vulnerabilities. Static code analysis automatically reviews the most current code to detect potential security flaws early in the development lifecycle.
Continually running scans, adaptive scanning inclusion lists, and continuously updating vulnerability signatures help Docoholic stay ahead of many security threats. To get a second opinion about our ability to identify and respond to security risks, we bring in industry-recognized third parties to perform two annual penetration tests. The goal of these programs is to iteratively identify flaws that present security risk and rapidly address any issues. Penetration tests are performed against the application layers and network layers of the Docoholic technology stack, and penetration testers are given internal access to the Docoholic product and/or corporate networks in order to maximize the kinds of potential vectors that should be evaluated.
In addition to internal vulnerability scanning and independent penetration testing, Docoholic manages a bug bounty program. Independent security researchers are invited to participate in identifying security flaws in the Docoholic products and are rewarded for their submissions. Security community members and Docoholic customers are welcome to perform security testing against trial portals. Information about Docoholic’s bounty program is available at CUSTOMER DATA PROTECTION
4.2.4 CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION IN THE DOCOHOLIC PRODUCTS
The Docoholic products are an integrated marketing, sales, and customer service experience. The information collected in our products is data gathered through lead or customer interaction, public directories, and reputable 3rd party sources. Docoholic’s tools allow customers to define the type of information to be collected stored on their behalf. Our customers ensure that they capture only appropriate information to support their marketing, sales, and service processes. The Docoholic products are not used to collect or capture sensitive data such as credit or debit card numbers, personal financial account information, Social Security numbers, passport numbers, driver’s license numbers or similar identifiers, or employment,financial or health information.
4.2.5 CREDIT CARD INFORMATION PROTECTION
Many Docoholic customers pay for the service by credit card. Docoholic does not store, process or collect credit card information submitted to us by customers. We leverage trusted and PCI-compliant payment vendors to ensure that customers’ credit card information is processed securely and according to appropriate regulation and industry standards.
4.2.6 ENCRYPTION IN-TRANSIT & AT-REST
All sensitive interactions with the Docoholic products (e.g., API calls, login, authenticated sessions to the customer's portal, etc.) are encrypted in-transit with TLS 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, or 1.3- and 2,048-bit keys or better. Transport layer security (TLS).Docoholic leverages several technologies to ensure stored data is encrypted at rest. The physical and virtualized hard drives used by Docoholic product server instances as well as long-term storage solutions like AWS S3 use AES-256 encryption. Additionally, certain databases or field-level information is encrypted at rest, based on the sensitivity of the information. For instance, user passwords are hashed and certain email features work by providing an additional level of both at-rest and in-transit encryption.
Encryption keys for both in-transit and at-rest encryption are securely managed by the Docoholic platform. TLS private keys for in-transit encryption are managed through our content delivery partner. Volume and field-level encryption keys for at-rest encryption are stored in a hardened Key Management System (KMS). Keys are rotated, and the frequency varies by the type of key and the sensitivity of the key and the data it protects; in general, TLS certificates expire every two years.
4.2.7 USER LOGIN PROTECTIONS
The Docoholic products allow users to login to their Docoholic accounts using built-in Docoholic login,. The built-in login enforces a uniform password policy which requires a minimum of 8 characters and a combination of lower- and upper-case letters, special characters, whitespace, and numbers. People who use Docoholic’s built-in login cannot change the default password policy.
4.2.8 DOCOHOLIC EMPLOYEE ACCESS
Docoholic controls individual access to data within its production and corporate environment. A subset of Docoholic’s employees are granted access to production data based on their role in the company through role-based access controls (RBAC) or on an as-needed basis referred to as JITA (just in time access).
Engineers and members of Operations teams may be granted access to various production systems, as a function of their role. Common access needs include alert responses and troubleshooting, as well as to analyze information for product investment decisions as well as product support. Access to the product infrastructure is limited by network access and user authentication and authorization controls. Access to networking functions is strictly limited to individuals whose jobs require that access, and access is reviewed on a continual basis.
Customer Support, Services, and other customer engagement staff with a need-to-know may request just in time access to customer portals on a time-limited basis. Requests for access are limited to their work responsibilities associated with supporting and servicing our customers. The requests are limited to just-in-time access to a specific customer's portal for a maximum 24 hour period. All access requests, logins, queries, page views and similar information are logged.
4.3.1 DATA RETENTION POLICY
Customer data is retained for as long as you remain an active customer. The Docoholic platform provides active customers with the tools to delete their data, as they see fit. Former customers’ data is removed from live databases upon a customer’s written request or after an established period following the termination of all customer agreements. Freemium customers’ data is purged when the portal is no longer actively used, and former paying customers’ data is purged 90 days after all customer relationships are terminated. Information stored in replicas, snapshots, and backups is not actively purged but instead naturally ages itself from the repositories as the data lifecycle occurs. Docoholi cretains certain data like logs and related metadata in order to address security, compliance, or statutory needs.
4.3.2 PRIVACY PROGRAM MANAGEMENT
4.4 BUSINESS CONTINUITY & DISASTER RECOVERY
Docoholic maintains business continuity and disaster recovery plans focusing both on preventing outage through redundancy of telecommunications, systems and business operations, and on rapid recovery strategies in the event of an availability or performance issue. Whenever customer-impacting situations occur, Docoholic’s goal is to quickly and transparently isolate and address the issue. Identified issues are published and are subsequently updated until the issue is resolved.
4.4.1 SYSTEM RELIABILITY & RECOVERY
Business continuity testing is part of Docoholic normal processing. Docoholic recovery processes are validated continuously through normal maintenance and support processes. We follow continuous deployment principles, and create or destroy many server instances daily as part of our regular maintenance and growth. We also use those procedures to recover from impaired instances and other failures, allowing us to practice our recovery process every day.Docoholic primarily relies on infrastructure redundancy, real time replication and backups. All Docoholic product services are built with full redundancy. Server infrastructure is strategically distributed across multiple distinct availability zones and virtual private cloud networks within our infrastructure providers, and all web, application, and database components are deployed with a minimum of n+1 supporting server instances or containers.
4.4.2 BACKUP STRATEGY
Docoholic ensures data is replicated and backed up in multiple durable data-stores. The retention period of backups depends on the nature of the data. Data is also replicated across availability zones and infrastructure locations in order to provide fault-tolerance as well as scalability and responsive recovery, when necessary.
4.5 DOCOHOLIC CORPORATE SECURITY
4.5.1 EMPLOYEE AUTHENTICATION & AUTHORIZATION
Docoholic enforces an industry-standard corporate password policy. That policy requires changing passwords at least every 90 days. It also requires a minimum password length of 8 characters and complexity requirements including special characters, upper and lower case characters, and numbers. Docoholic prohibits account and password sharing by multiple employees.
Employees generally authenticate to Docoholic product infrastructure using SSH keys. Where passwords are allowed, the password policy requires 8 character passwords. Additionally, all of the tools we use to build the Docoholic products leverage multi-factor authentication or are protected by single-sign on solutions that enforce multi-factor authentication.
4.5.2 ACCESS MANAGEMENT
Docoholic has regimented and automated authentication and authorization procedures for employee access to Docoholic systems, including the marketing and sales platforms. All access is logged. Most frequently, access is granted based on a role-based access control model. Just in time access is built into automated procedures around a set of rigorous authorization mechanisms.
We built an extensive set of support systems to streamline and automate our security management and compliance activities. In addition to many other functions, the system sweeps our product and corporate infrastructure several times daily to ensure that permission grants are appropriate, to manage employee events, to revoke accounts and access where needed, to compile logs of access requests, and to capture compliance evidence for each of our technology security controls. These internal systems sweep the infrastructure validating that it meets approved configurations on a 24-hours basis.
4.5.3 BACKGROUND CHECKS
Docoholic employees undergo an extensive 3rd party background check prior to formal employment offers, wherever local regulations and employment standards allow. In particular, employment, education, and criminal checks are performed for potential employees. Reference verification is performed at the hiring manager's discretion. All employees must comply with Non-Disclosure Agreements and Acceptable Use Policy as part of access to corporate and production networks.
4.5.4 SECURITY AWARENESS & SECURITY POLICIES
To help keep all our engineering, support, and other employees on the same page with regard to protecting your data, Docoholic developed and maintains a Written Information Security Policy. The policy covers data handling requirements, privacy considerations, and responses to violations, among many other topics.
With this policy and the myriad protections and standards in place, we also ensure Docoholic employees are well-trained for their roles. Multiple levels of security training are provided to Docoholic employees, based on their roles and resulting access. General security awareness training is offered to all new employees and covers Docoholic security requirements. After initial training, different training tracks are available based on an employee's role. Developer-specific training is provided by and tailored to Docoholic's engineering teams. Role-specific security awareness training for Services & Support, Sales, and many other roles is tailored for the unique considerations of the role. Recurring training is provided through regular updates, notices, and internal publications.
4.6 INCIDENT MANAGEMENT
Docoholic provides 24x7x365 coverage to respond quickly to all security and privacy events. Docoholic's rapid incident response program is responsive and repeatable. Pre-defined incident types, based on historical trending, are created in order to facilitate timely incident tracking, consistent task assignment, escalation, and communication. Many automated processes feed into the incident response process,including malicious activity or anomaly alerts, vendor alerts, customer requests, privacy events, and others.
In responding to any incident, we first determine the exposure of the information and determine the source of the security problem, if possible. We communicate back to the customer (and any other affected customers) via email or phone (if email is not sufficient). We provide periodic updates as needed to ensure appropriate resolution of the incident. Our Chief Security Officer reviews all security-related incidents, either suspected or proven, and we coordinate with affected customers using the most appropriate means, depending on the nature of the incident.
5. PRODUCT SECURITY FEATURES
Docoholic’s security program is designed to protect all of the Docoholic products. Each product takes advantage of common application development security best practices as well as infrastructure security and high availability configurations.
Whether our products are free or paid, feature-rich or lightweight, Docoholic works hard to maintain the privacy of data you entrust with us. Data you store in Docoholic products is yours. We put our security program in place to protect it, and use it only to provide the Docoholic service to you. We never share your data across customers and never sell it.
6. DOCUMENT SCOPE AND USE
Docoholic values transparency in the ways we provide solutions to our customers. This document is designed with that transparency in mind. We are continuously improving the protections that have been implemented and, along those lines, the information and data in this document (including any related communications) are not intended to create a binding or contractual obligation between Docoholic and any parties, or to amend, alter or revise any existing agreements between the parties.
