Data Security & Confidentiality
www.ai.law Corp. employs multiple methods to maintain reasonable and adequate security and confidentiality of User's data. This includes:
Cloud Storage Data Encryption
We employ Cloud Storage which encrypts user data on the server-side before it's stored. Additional encryption layers include: Server-side encryption, Customer-managed encryption keys through Cloud Key Management Service, Customer-supplied encryption keys for added protection, and Client-side encryption where data is encrypted before it is sent to Cloud Storage.
Authentication and Authorization
We validate user identity during each login using multiple authentication methods to ensure security and compatibility. Our authorization process controls user access after authentication using methods like Role-based access controls (RBAC) and Attribute-based access control (ABAC).

LLMs and www.ai.law Corp. may access API data for abuse monitoring and investigation. LLM data is deleted within 30 days unless required for legal reasons.
