How is the data safeguarded?
Data security is paramount to us at Existing Conditions. That is why our servers adhere to the strictest security and privacy standards. We are proud to be responsible stewards of your valuable data, and are happy to host the files for you now, and in the future.
We typically keep project files readily available for one year, after which they are archived. Archived files are still accessible, but the original link we sent upon project delivery will no longer be active. If you need access to files from an archived project, just reach out to us and we can send you a new link.
Some of our clients inquire about web-based platforms for viewing point clouds and scan data. These systems allow users to easily view scan data without the burden of downloading large data sets or installing new software. They are an exciting development for us, and one that we keep a close eye on. However, we do not believe these platforms are currently the best solution for our clients. These systems tend to allow only small amounts of data, and charge repeating payments.
Still, we are excited about the prospect of this workflow. If you would prefer to use a web-based scan data viewing platform, please let us know and we will apprise you on the additional costs required.
