What Security Measures Do We Use?

We seek to protect Personal Data using appropriate technical and organizational measures based on the type of Personal Data and applicable processing activity. For example, Magic secures the personally identifiable information you provide in a controlled, secure environment and protected from unauthorized access. Your account is protected by Github’s secure OAuth login integration for your privacy and security using the modern encryption techniques. Magic regularly audits its system for any possible security vulnerabilities to safeguard Personal Data. Magic protects the security of your information during transmission by using Transport Layer Security (TSL/SSL), which encrypts all information that you input.

Please note that in some circumstances, we may not be able to fully comply with your request, such as if it is frivolous or extremely impractical, if it jeopardizes the rights of others, or if it is not required by law, but in those circumstances, we will still respond to notify you of such a decision.
