Quorum runs on StayPrivate’s fully managed, dedicated servers, located in secure Tier 4 data centres within the UK. Tier 4 data centres adhere to the most stringent standards and are designed to host mission critical computer systems. Our data centres operate fully redundant subsystems (such as air conditioning, network access, power supply, fire protection) and have separate security zones controlled by biometric access. To further ensure durability, we back up encrypted versions of all our systems and data daily to the cloud and, periodically, in physical format too.
All files you share or store using Quorum are encrypted before being stored in the Amazon S3 Cloud in Ireland, which is designed to provide 99.999999999% durability over a twelve month period. This durability level corresponds to an average annual expected loss of 0.000000001% of objects a year. For example, if you store 10,000 files with us, you can on average expect to incur a loss of one file once every 10,000,000 years. In addition, Amazon S3 is designed to sustain the concurrent loss of data in two facilities.
We use versioning, which means that we preserve every version of every file you store, so that you cannot accidentally delete or overwrite important data. All old versions of files are stored fully encrypted in a restricted access area and are deleted after an appropriate period of time.
All your communications and information are encrypted both in transit and in storage. We use one of the most secure encryption algorithms available (AES 256) and all files are further encrypted by us before we store them in the cloud, meaning that Amazon does not have access to any of your information. Encryption keys are not shared between users, but are derived dynamically, meaning that even in the unlikely event of a catastrophic breach of data security, all your information would remain fully encrypted.
Access is secured by password and PIN (two-step authentication). Users can log-out from other devices remotely and there are a range of other security settings, including, for example, the option to automatically receive email notifications each time an account is accessed (the online version of a burglar alarm).
All communications and information are shared only between the sender and the recipient(s). In other words, users only have access to their own information. The Quorum user interface is designed to minimise the risk of accidentally sharing information inappropriately.
All data reside in the European Union and are protected by European Union Data Protection laws. StayPrivate Ltd is a wholly owned subsidiary of Always Organised Ltd, which is registered under UK Data Protection laws with the Information Commissioner’s Office.
We have been awarded ISO 27001 accreditation, the international standard defining best practice for information security management systems.
All your files are stored in your company’s unique secure space within the Amazon S3 Cloud. Your information remains your legal property at all times. In the unlikely event of StayPrivate Ltd defaulting or otherwise failing to deliver the service, we will create a single account granting you direct access to your company’s secure area. For companies that prefer to run their own disaster recovery service, we offer an additional back up service, whereby we set up and keep up-to-date your own entirely independent back up area, containing a copy of all your company’s information and encrypted using a key which you hold and keep safe.

Founded in 2014, StayPrivate provides secure communication across the open internet.
Built on the principle of openness, the internet has made communicating and sharing so much easier. Yet there is a downside: data theft, identity fraud, hacks and cyber ‘heists’. The threat to us all, to our professional and private worlds, is very real.
Every time we communicate online we scatter new digital breadcrumbs, information about ourselves, our interests, what we are doing, where we are, what we like. Would you like to check-in? Do you accept these cookies?
And of course, we mentally and literally click ‘Accept’. Because otherwise it is ‘Access Denied’. So we let the cookies collect our information, telling the site owners, and the owners of other sites, more and more about us. Big Data is simply the data we are all making, all the time, our digital lives being aggregated and correlated.
It is not fair to suggest the open internet is one big surveillance camera - but the internet could fairly be termed a very open sea, where not everything lurking in the depths is friendly. The answer is not to be paranoid. Nor is the answer to blindly accept ‘the way things are’ and hope for the best. The answer is to take control. To navigate the open internet in the right kind of digital raft.
The digital age is evolving. The internet and how we use it are adapting. A more personalised approach to online behaviour is crucial so that companies can operate with confidence and confidentiality. Crucial so children can communicate safely online, and for parents to know they are safe. Crucial so we can all live and communicate off and online with peace-of-mind.
StayPrivate is a state-of-the-art technology platform and suite of digital products built to safeguard our everyday digital lives: to keep us all safer, to ensure that we only share what we want to share.
StayPrivate - Internet on Your Terms.
At StayPrivate, we believe in technology that lets people take control. Our business ethos is similar. We are a technology company, but we are a people business. Our reputation depends on our people and what they do.
We are expanding rapidly and are hiring new people all the time, from different backgrounds and with different skills, into a wide range of different roles.
