Use of Vowel AI requires securely transmitting data to OpenAI in order to support end-user related features. OpenAI does not use customer data submitted by Vowel to train or improve their models. Vowel and OpenAI (as well as all of its partners) take privacy very seriously, and make every effort to keep this data secure, ensuring that all data is always encrypted at rest and during transport, in keeping with our general security best practices and policies.
All connections to Vowel are encrypted using SSL, and any attempt to connect over HTTP is redirected to HTTPS.
All data (including meeting recordings and transcripts) is encrypted at rest and in transit.
System passwords are encrypted using AWS KMS with restricted access to specific production systems.
We leverage AWS KMS to create unique, custom encryption keys for your Vowel workspace, ensuring that any user generated content or media is encrypted with an additional layer of security that further sequesters and protects company data.
We use industry-standard Amazon Aurora, PostgreSQL and Elastic Search data stores, hosted and managed by AWS. Additionally, we run Apache Kafka and Redis, also managed by AWS.
Data access and authorizations are provided on a need-to-know basis, and based on the principle of least privilege.
Access to the AWS production system is restricted to authorized personnel only, and is accessible solely via secure tunneling, as all datastores and API endpoints are deployed only to private subnets, allowing no direct access.
We will implement a custom data retention duration for customers on our Enterprise plan (direct configuration coming soon). Customer data can be purged from Vowel systems subsequent to contract termination, upon request.
