PicturEngine Platform photographer images are stored on AWS S3. Our photographers’ high-resolution images are accessible only through our proprietary sales platform and distributed via a temporary and secure link generated after each image license. We also take the next step further and embed the actual license data in the “PLUS LDF” (License Data Format) in all images downloaded by clients.
Cloud storage providers use a number of different measures to ensure that your data is kept safe. First and foremost, all traffic between clients and the cloud storage system uses SSL to establish a secure, encrypted communication channel. This ensures that any data (usernames, passwords, and content) cannot be intercepted and read by a third-party. Users authenticate with a valid username and API Access Key.
The API Access Key is only available from within your cloud service provider's control panel. Users must enter their valid username and password to gain access to view the API Access Key or to generate a new key.
When deleting images from the cloud storage provider's system, all copies of data are permanently removed within a matter of minutes. Furthermore, the physical blocks making up the customer’s data is zeroed over before that space is re-used for other customer data. In other words, after a delete request, the data will be unrecoverable.
