What is the Clean Slate Pledge?
The Clean Slate Pledge empowers business owners to let their customers know that their health & safety is a top priority. The pledge is printed on a decal along with your unique QR code and is to be displayed in your storefront. The Clean Slate Pledge states, “We pledge to place health and safety above all else.” It also lists the actions that can be tracked using the Slate Pages app: health checks, hand washing, and sanitizing. Finally, the pledge vows to make these records transparent for customers who can access by scanning the QR code on the decal.

Does The Slate Pages Use A Secure Connection?
Slate Pages uses standard SSL technology to provide a secure and trusted connection between the application server and clients. This is clearly denoted by the “https” shown in the URL and certificate details are available on most web browsers. The encryption algorithm is AES 256. All communication to and from Slate Pages are secured through this method.
Is My Data Secure?
There are numerous security controls and features in place on Microsoft Azure that are best addressed on the Microsoft Azure Trust Center: http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/support/trust-center/security/. The term “secure” should not be confused with data encryption—Slate Pages does NOT encrypt data, with the exception of user credentials, at this time.
Is The Slate Pages’ Data Center Certified And/Or Compliant With Any Standards?
While Slate Pages does not operate a data center or host any infrastructure, the Microsoft Azure platform is independently audited and verified by numerous parties and provides a complete listing of certifications and adherence to regulatory compliance programs here: http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/support/trust-center/compliance/
Is My Data Backed Up And Recoverable?
Since The Slate Pages uses Azure SQL Database (Standard Tier) there are numerous features in place to provide fault tolerance, data backups, and recovery of data should the need arise. At any time, there are multiple replicas of The Slate Pages’ database running to protect against hardware failure or the loss of an entire replica database.
Who Has Access To My Data?
Anybody with access to a Slate can scan the QR code and view the data with the Slate Pages app or a QR code reader. Slates are editable only with an authorized access code. Access codes are assigned to a specific owner and can be changed or revoked at the owner’s request.
Can Someone Guess My URL?
No - there are 68x10^22 possible slate access codes. To put it in perspective, that’s more possibilities than there are grains of sand on this planet.
