We are dedicated to keeping your data private, safe, and secure across Lucidchart, Lucidspark, and Lucidscale.
Lucid’s approach to security
Lucid recognizes that your data is a valuable asset that must be protected. Click here to read more details about how our security policies, practices, and procedures safeguard customer data in Lucidchart, Lucidspark, and Lucidscale.
Lucid claims no ownership over any document data. You retain all intellectual property and other rights to your documents and the information contained therein. We respect your privacy and will never make your documents publicly available without permission.
To ensure the privacy of your information, all data is transferred between user devices and Lucid servers using up to 256-bit encrypted connection via TLS 1.2 and a world-class certificate provider. Lucid also employs encryption at rest (AES-256) to protect the secrecy of all data persisted by the application. The cryptographic keys used to secure Lucid are protected by Amazon’s Key Management Services.
Lucid is committed to CCPA and GDPR compliance and ensures that it uses an approved framework (e.g., Standard Contractual Clauses or a successor to Privacy Shield) to transfer customer’s personal data from the EEA, UK, or Switzerland to the U.S. In addition, all of Lucid’s sub-processors utilize either the SCCs or Binding Corporate Rules to transfer personal data from the EEA, UK, or Switzerland to the US. Lucid is EU-US Privacy Shield certified.
We know that cloud storage requires extra effort to protect your data. Lucidscale security includes processes to keep your data secure and accessible to the right people. We use best practices for security for all three cloud providers that integrate with Lucidscale—AWS, Azure, and GCP.
Lucid complies with applicable local and international requirements and maintains compliance certifications, including:
Lucid has obtained SOC 2 Type I and SOC 2 Type II certifications, which represents an external verification of our internal processes and controls. Lucid also maintains its Privacy Shield certification with the U.S. Department of Commerce as well as EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield certification and is committed to CCPA and GDPR compliance.
Security and availability
Security for your data is one of our top priorities, and we have a team dedicated to securing Lucid’s systems, processes, and controls. Lucid is powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS), the industry’s leading provider of secure computing infrastructure.
We choose AWS because of their stringent security measures, which include:
- SOC 2 audits
- Level 1 service provider under the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS)
- ISO 27001 certification
- U.S. General Services Administration FISMA-Moderate level operation authorization
To learn more about the security procedures employed by AWS, please review their documentation.
You can securely access Lucid products at any time and from any device or location. Lucid offers a 99.9% uptime guarantee to enterprise customers. We do this by replicating documents, account information, access control lists, and other persistent data across multiple availability zones using industry-standard database management systems, and failover solutions.
Visibility and control
Lucid enterprise features allow you to maintain governance of your accounts so you can better adhere to compliance requirements. These features include document sharing restrictions, allowed IP restrictions, and allowed domains. We offer Key Management Service (KMS), which allows customers to control their own unique encryption keys to add an additional level of security.
We follow security best practices and protect your data by using the principle of least privilege access. A simple role-based permissions system allows administrators to manage access to documents owned by the account. The account management tools allow account and team admins to integrate with their identity management platform and control collaboration settings.
