Security & Privacy
Unlike our competitors, FastBound is not a Federal Firearms License holder and we never will be!
By using FastBound, you are not voluntarily giving a competitor (or a group of competitors in some cases) your confidential information including your suppliers, customers, inventory, sales figures, cost of goods sold, etc.
FastBound protects files in transit between your web browser and our servers, and at rest:
- Data stored at rest is encrypted using 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption.
- To protect data in transit between your web browser and our servers, only Transport Layer Security (TLS) is used, creating a secure tunnel protected by 128-bit or higher Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption.
To further protect you, FastBound flags authentication cookies as secure, HTTP-only and we enable HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which helps to protect websites against protocol downgrade attacks and cookie hijacking.
FastBound maintains an overall rating of A for the security certificate and configuration on our servers.
Exceeding ATF requirements of daily backups: FastBound backs up databases every 5-10 minutes. Database backups are encrypted using 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption.
FastBound is hosted in the United States, in data centers that:
- Have Department of Defense (DoD) Provisional Authorizations at Impact Levels 5, 4, and 2.
- Certifies the use of cryptographic modules, compliant with the US Federal Info Processing Standard 140-2.
- Maintains DoD certifications that meet and exceed US NIST 800-171 security requirements.
- Are compliant with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards Level 1.
FastBound will never release any information about users or accounts unless legally compelled to do so. FastBound will never surrender any information without a court order, and only then, will we disclose the information specifically requested in the complaint.
ATF can examine records at the licensed premises at any time as part of any criminal investigation or to trace a firearm — in other words, it is easier for ATF to get information from you than it is from FastBound.
