At Mover, we are committed to the integrity of your data every step of the way.

If you feel there is anything we could be doing better for the privacy and security of your data, please contact us.


We provide this overview so that you can better understand the security measures we've put in place to protect the information that you transmit using Mover.

Secure Storage & Transfers

We encrypt the files that you transmit through Mover using the AES-256 standard, which is the same encryption standard used by banks to secure customer data. Encryption for your files is applied as soon we receive them, and we manage the encryption keys.

Mover uses Amazon EC2, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Compute, and other custom hosted servers for our server infrastructure. Microsoft, Google, and Amazon store data over several large-scale data centers.

You can find more information about:

If supported, your files are sent between the services you choose and our servers over a secure channel using 256-bit TLS (Transport Layer Security) encryption, the standard for secure Internet network connections.

Your Data is Not Retained by Mover

After we have completed transmission of your data between the services you have directed us to use we remove any copies of your data from our servers. We simply facilitate the transfer of your data and we have no interest in, or benefit from, retaining your data.


We guard your privacy to the best of our ability and work hard to protect your information from unauthorized access.

Mover employees are prohibited from viewing the content of files you transmit through Mover, and are only permitted to view file metadata (e.g., file names and locations). Like most online services, we have a small number of employees who must be able to access user data for the reasons stated in our privacy policy (e.g., when legally required to do so). But that's the rare exception, not the rule. We have strict policy and technical access controls that prohibit employee access except in these rare circumstances. In addition, we employ a number of physical and electronic security measures to protect user information from unauthorized access.

On the rare occasion, Mover employees may access your connections and files only to fix bugs or troubleshoot problems that have been identified.

Compliance With Laws and Law Enforcement

As set forth in our privacy policy, and in compliance with Canadian law, Mover cooperates with Canadian law enforcement when it receives valid legal process, which may require Mover to provide the contents of files we currently possess. In these cases, Mover will remove Mover's encryption from the files before providing them to law enforcement. Since we do not retain any files after their transmission it is highly unlikely that we will have any of your personal data on hand if such a legal request occurs.

How to Add Your Own Layer of Encryption to Mover

Mover applies encryption to your files after they have been uploaded, and we manage the encryption keys. Users who wish to manage their own encryption keys can apply encryption before transmitting files through Mover. Please note that if you encrypt files before transmitting them, some features may not be available.

Where Do I Report Security Concerns?

We take a number of measures to ensure that the data you transmit through Mover is safe and secure. While we're very confident in our technology, we recognize that no system can guarantee data security with 100% certainty. For that reason, we will continue to innovate to make sure that our security measures are state of the art, and we will investigate any and all reported security issues concerning Mover's services or software. For a direct line to our security experts, report security issues to

We will fully credit anybody whose reports lead to the improvement of Mover security.

Security in Depth


This whitepaper presents an overview of Mover’s infrastructure with regards to security and how it fits into customers planned implementation. It will cover security policies and encryption.

Mover is a highly available infrastructure with the primary purpose of moving files between cloud storage providers. We provide a level of service tailored for the customer, and we understand that security and reliability are the most important features. We are dedicated to continually improving, and the policies presented here are to be considered the minimum standard of our implementation.


Security for us comes in four primary areas:

  1. Authorization of the service for a user.
  2. Storage of user authorization information.
  3. Protection of our infrastructure from external intrusion.
  4. Security of a user’s data as it flows through our system.

Authorization of service

During the process of authentication with a cloud storage provider or other service, we require the collection of authentication data to be retrieved and stored for later use. There are two primary methods that are used to collect this data, they are:

  1. OAuth
  2. OAuth (Open Authorization) is a web standard which provides a process for end-users to authorize third-party access to their server resources without sharing credentials. More information can be found at:

    Although the exact encryption method varies browser by browser, Mover requires strong TLS encryption between Mover and the User for the initial authorization. All our OAuth token exchange use TLS v1.2 to connect to the authorizing server. OAuth will allow the user to deny Mover access to the third-party service at any time by revoking our token.

  3. Direct password or key collection
  4. All password or key collection occurs through the web interface over a secure TLS connection utilizing strong ciphers, generally 256-bit AES or stronger.

Storage of user authorization information

In order for us to have continual access to the user’s service, we need to store authorization credentials. In the case of OAuth or OAuth like services, like Box, we store an authorization token which grants us access. In the case of a direct password or key, like FTP servers or Amazon S3, we need to store direct authorization credentials.

These credentials are the key to accessing the customer’s files, and we take special care to secure this properly. All tokens and passwords are encrypted using AES 256 variant with both global and user specific encryption keys. This data is then stored in our internal database servers with no outside access.

Security of Infrastructure

It is important that our infrastructure is secured from external attacks. The following classes of servers have carefully implemented security policies:

  1. Runners
  2. Runners are our servers that move files. Since this entire process relies on outbound connections, our security policy can be very simple and secure. There is no outside access allowed to these servers. All outbound traffic is pushed through a point firewall, obfuscating the infrastructure behind.

    For maintenance, SSH access is allowed through a two stage process. Access to the point firewall utilizing SSH keys only, then from there SSH access to the individual servers only via SSH keys. To further increase security, inbound SSH is only allowed from specific white-listed IP addresses.

  3. API Servers
  4. Our API servers, both for our public API and internal API, have a public facing interface. Similar to the Runners, the API servers have SSH management access through a two stage process. The main difference is that our API servers require a public facing web interface that is completely open. Only TLS web traffic is allowed into this interface. For our internal application API, only authenticated session based traffic is allowed. For our public API all access is secured through our managed API keys.

  5. Web interface
  6. All applications by Mover that have a web interface (ie. are secured using TLS strong ciphers. User input, including username and passwords, are passed securely to the backend over this encrypted TLS connection, identified by our site-wide 2048-bit TLS certificate.

User data as it flows through us

During the process of a transfer, all files are downloaded to our Runner servers, then uploaded to the destination service. Each step relies on the security provided by the individual service that we are getting the files from, or uploading the files to. The following list describes the encryption available with each service:

No Encryption TLS SSH
  • FTP
  • MySQL
  • Amazon S3
  • Box
  • Dropbox
  • Egnyte
  • FTPS
  • Google Drive
  • Office 365
  • OneDrive
  • Rackspace
  • SharePoint
  • WebDAV
  • SFTP

During mediation process, Mover maintains a copy of the file, temporarily, on an encrypted file system before it uploads it to the final destination. As soon as the file has been verified uploaded, we immediately remove the file from our cache. We never keep a copy of your data.

Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy provides our policies and procedures for collecting, using, and disclosing your information. Users can access the Mover service (the “Service”) through our website (, applications on Devices, through APIs, and through third-parties. A “Device” is any computer used to access the Mover Service, including without limitation a desktop, laptop, mobile phone, tablet, or other consumer electronic device. This Privacy Policy governs your access of the Mover Service, regardless of how you access it, and by using our Services you consent to the collection, transfer, processing, storage, disclosure and other uses described in this Privacy Policy. All of the different forms of data, content, and information described below are collectively referred to as “information.”

The Information We Collect and Store

We may collect and store the following information when running the Mover Service:

Information You Provide

When you register an account, we may collect some personal information, such as your name, credit card or other billing information, email address and home or business postal addresses. You may also ask us to import your contacts by giving us access to your third party services (for example, your email account) or to use your social networking information if you give us access to your account on social network connection services. You may also provide us with your contacts' email addresses when sharing folders or files with them. We may also receive Personal Information (for example, your email address) through other users, for example if they have tried to share something with you.


We temporarily collect and store the files you upload, download, or access with the Mover Service (“Files”). Once we have finished moving or manipulating your Files we automatically and permanently delete them from our servers.

Log Data

When you use the Service, we automatically record information from your Device, its software, and your activity using the Services. This may include the Device's Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, the web page visited before you came to our website, information you search for on our website, locale preferences, identification numbers associated with your Devices, your mobile carrier, date and time stamps associated with transactions, system configuration information, metadata concerning your Files, and other interactions with the Service.

Using the Service will generate an activity log per transfer, tied only to your account, listing metadata such as file name and file size. These are retained for quality assurance and troubleshooting purposes.


We also use “cookies” to collect information and improve our Services. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your Device. We may use “persistent cookies” to save your registration ID and login password for future logins to the Service. We may use “session ID cookies” to enable certain features of the Service, to better understand how you interact with the Service and to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic routing on the Service. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all aspects of the Service.

How We Use Personal Information

We use this information for the above purposes and to monitor and analyze use of the Service, for the Service's technical administration, to increase our Service's functionality and user-friendliness, and to verify users have the authorization needed for the Service to process their requests. As of the last modified date of this policy, we use Google Analytics, Intercom, and FullStory.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Third-Party Applications

We may share your information with a third party application with your consent, for example when you choose to access our Services through such an application. We are not responsible for what those parties do with your information, so you should make sure you trust the application and that it has a privacy policy acceptable to you.

Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement Requests; Protection of Mover's Rights

We may disclose to parties outside Mover files stored in Mover and information about you that we collect when we have a good faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) comply with a law, regulation or compulsory legal request; (b) protect the safety of any person from death or serious bodily injury; (c) prevent fraud or abuse of Mover or its users; or (d) to protect Mover's property rights. If we provide your Mover files to a law enforcement agency as set forth above, we will remove Mover's encryption from the files before providing them to law enforcement. However, Mover will not be able to decrypt any files that you encrypted prior to storing them on Mover.

Business Transfers

If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, your information may be transferred as part of that transaction, but we will notify you (for example, via email and/or a prominent notice on our website) of any change in control or use of your Personal Information or Files, or if either become subject to a different Privacy Policy. We will also notify you of choices you may have regarding the information.

Terms of Use

This Agreement (the “Agreement”) is between Mover Inc., a Canadian corporation (“Mover”) and the organization agreeing to these terms (“Customer”). This Agreement governs access to and use of the Mover client software (“Software”) and services (together, the “Services” or “Mover”). By signing your contract for the Services or using the Services, you agree to this Agreement as a Customer. If you are agreeing to this Agreement for use of the Services by an organization, you are agreeing to this Agreement on behalf of that organization. You must have the authority to bind that organization to this Agreement, otherwise you must not sign up for the Services.


  1. Provision of Services Customer and users of Customer's Services account (“End Users“) may access and use the Services in accordance with this Agreement.
  2. Facilities and Data Processing Mover will use, at a minimum, industry standard technical and organizational security measures to transfer, store, and process Customer Data. These measures are designed to protect the integrity of Customer Data and guard against the unauthorized or unlawful access to, use, and processing of Customer Data. Customer agrees that Mover may transfer, store, and process Customer Data in locations other than Customer's country.
  3. Modifications to the Services Mover may update the Services from time to time. If Mover changes the Services in a manner that materially reduces their functionality, Mover will inform Customer via the email address associated with the account.
  4. Software Some Services allow Customer to download Mover Software which may update automatically. Customer may use the Software only to access the Services. If any component of the Software is offered under an open source license, Mover will make the license available to Customer and the provisions of that license may expressly override some of the terms of this Agreement.

Customer Obligations

  1. Compliance Customer is responsible for use of the Services by its End Users. Customer and its End Users must use the Services in compliance with the Acceptable Use Policy. Customer will obtain from End Users any consent necessary to allow Administrators to engage in the activities described in this Agreement and to allow Mover to provide the Services. Customer will comply with laws and regulations applicable to Customer's use of the Services, if any.
  2. Customer Administration of the Services Customer may specify End Users as “Administrators“. Administrators may have the ability to access, disclose, restrict or remove Customer Data in or from Services accounts. Administrators may also have the ability to monitor, restrict, or terminate access to Services accounts. Mover's responsibilities do not extend to the internal management or administration of the Services. Customer is responsible for: (i) maintaining the confidentiality of passwords and Administrator accounts; (ii) managing access to Administrator accounts; and (iii) ensuring that Administrators' use of the Services complies with this Agreement.
  3. Unauthorized Use & Access Customer will prevent unauthorized use of the Services by its End Users and terminate any unauthorized use of or access to the Services. The Services are not intended for End Users under the age of 13. Customer will ensure that it does not allow any person under 13 to use the Services. Customer will promptly notify Mover of any unauthorized use of or access to the Services.
  4. Restricted Uses Customer will not (i) sell, resell, or lease the Services unless a formal contract exists between Mover and the Customer with the express permission to do so (eg. a Reseller Agreement); (ii) use the Services for activities where use or failure of the Services could lead to physical damage, death, or personal injury; or (iii) reverse engineer the Services, nor attempt nor assist anyone else to do so, unless this restriction is prohibited by law.
  5. Usage Reporting Due to technical limitations in Mover, technical limitations in third-party services (such as APIs), and general data reporting limitations in the third-party services Mover connects to, Customer is solely responsible for researching and reconciliating data amounts in source and destination before, during, and after use of the Services. Mover's internal usage reporting and activity logs will be considered the principal source of truth if differences between third-party reporting and Mover usage reporting are found.
  6. Third Party Requests
    a) “Third Party Request” means a request from a third party for records relating to an End User's use of the Services including information in or from an End User or Customer's Services account. Third Party Requests may include valid search warrants, court orders, or subpoenas, or any other request for which there is written consent from End Users permitting a disclosure.
    b) Customer is responsible for responding to Third Party Requests via its own access to information. Customer will seek to obtain information required to respond to Third Party Requests and will contact Mover only if it cannot obtain such information despite diligent efforts.
    c) Mover will make commercially reasonable efforts, to the extent allowed by law and by the terms of the Third Party Request, to: (A) promptly notify Customer of Mover's receipt of a Third Party Request; (B) comply with Customer's commercially reasonable requests regarding its efforts to oppose a Third Party Request; and (C) provide Customer with information or tools required for Customer to respond to the Third Party Request (if Customer is otherwise unable to obtain the information). If Customer fails to promptly respond to any Third Party Request, then Mover may, but will not be obligated to do so.

Third-Party Services

If Customer uses any third-party service (e.g., a service that uses a Mover API) with the Services, (a) Mover will not be responsible for any act or omission of the third party, including the third party's access to or use of Customer Data and (b) Mover does not warrant or support any service provided by the third party.


  1. Of End User Accounts by Mover If an End User (i) violates this Agreement or (ii) uses the Services in a manner that Mover reasonably believes will cause it liability, then Mover may request that Customer suspend or terminate the applicable End User account. If Customer fails to promptly suspend or terminate the End User account, then Mover may do so.
  2. Security Emergencies Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement, if there is a Security Emergency then Mover may automatically suspend use of the Services. Mover will make commercially reasonable efforts to narrowly tailor the suspension as needed to prevent or terminate the Security Emergency. “Security Emergency” means: (i) use of the Services that do or could disrupt the Services, other customers' use of the Services, or the infrastructure used to provide the Services and (ii) unauthorized third-party access to the Services.

Intellectual Property Rights.

  1. Reservation of Rights Except as expressly set forth herein, this Agreement does not grant (i) Mover any Intellectual Property Rights in Customer Data or (ii) Customer any Intellectual Property Rights in the Services or Mover trademarks and brand features. “Intellectual Property Rights” means current and future worldwide rights under patent, copyright, trade secret, trademark, moral rights, and other similar rights.

  4. Customer List Mover may include Customer's name in a list of Mover customers on the Mover website or in promotional materials.

Fees & Payment.

  1. Billing You can opt to add paid features to your account (turning your account into a "Paid Account"). Mover will automatically bill you from the date you convert to a Paid Account and on each periodic renewal until cancellation. Additional Fees may be assessed and charged based on usage of the Services. Customer is responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to Mover.
  2. Fees Customer will pay, and authorizes Mover to charge using Customer's selected payment method, for all applicable fees. Mover may suspend or terminate the Services if fees are past due.
  3. Taxes Customer is responsible for all taxes. Mover will only charge tax when legally required to do so.
  4. Purchase Orders If Customer requires the use of a purchase order or purchase order number, Customer (i) must provide the purchase order number at the time of purchase and (ii) agrees that any terms and conditions on a Customer purchase order will not apply to this Agreement and are null and void.
  5. No Refunds Customer may elect to cancel their payment plan or Paid Account at any time, at which time outstanding fees may be assessed. All fees are non-refundable except as required by law.
  6. Downgrades Your Paid Account will remain in effect until it's cancelled or terminated under these Terms. If you don't pay for your Paid Account on time, Mover reserves the right to suspend it or reduce your account to the free level.

Term & Termination.

  1. Term This Agreement will remain in effect from the date of account creation until Customer's account to the Services is terminated, and any subsequent usage of the services.
  2. Termination for Breach Either Mover or Customer may terminate this Agreement if: (i) the other party is in material breach of the Agreement and fails to cure that breach within 30 days after receipt of written notice or (ii) the other party ceases its business operations or becomes subject to insolvency proceedings and the proceedings are not dismissed within 90 days.
  3. Effects of Termination If this Agreement terminates: (i) the rights granted by Mover to Customer will cease immediately (except as set forth in this section); (ii) Mover may provide Customer access to its account at then-current fees so that Customer may export its Stored Data; and (iii) after a commercially reasonable period of time, Mover may delete any Stored Data relating to Customer's account. The following sections will survive expiration or termination of this Agreement: 2(e) (Third Party Requests), 5 (Intellectual Property Rights), 6 (Fees & Payment), 7(c) (Effects of Termination), 8 (Indemnification), 9 (Disclaimers), 10 (Limitation of Liability), 11 (Disputes), and 12 (Miscellaneous).


  1. By Customer Customer will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Mover from and against all liabilities, damages, and costs (including settlement costs and reasonable attorneys' fees) arising out of any claim by a third party against Mover and its affiliates regarding: (i) Customer Data; (ii) Customer's use of the Services in violation of this Agreement; or (iii) End Users' use of the Services in violation of this Agreement.
  2. By Mover Mover will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Customer from and against all liabilities, damages, and costs (including settlement costs and reasonable attorneys' fees) arising out of any claim by a third party against Customer to the extent based on an allegation that Mover's technology used to provide the Services to the Customer infringes or misappropriates any copyright, trade secret, U.S. patent, or trademark right of the third party. In no event will Mover have any obligations or liability under this section arising from: (i) use of any Services in a modified form or in combination with materials not furnished by Mover and (ii) any content, information, or data provided by Customer, End Users, or other third parties.
  3. Possible Infringement If Mover believes the Services infringe or may be alleged to infringe a third party's Intellectual Property Rights, then Mover may: (i) obtain the right for Customer, at Mover's expense, to continue using the Services; (ii) provide a non-infringing functionally equivalent replacement; or (iii) modify the Services so that they no longer infringe. If Mover does not believe the options described in this section are commercially reasonable then Mover may suspend or terminate Customer's use of the affected Services (with a pro-rata refund of prepaid fees for the Services).
  4. General The party seeking indemnification will promptly notify the other party of the claim and cooperate with the other party in defending the claim. The indemnifying party will have full control and authority over the defense, except that: (i) any settlement requiring the party seeking indemnification to admit liability requires prior written consent, not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed and (ii) the other party may join in the defense with its own counsel at its own expense. THE INDEMNITIES ABOVE ARE MOVER AND CUSTOMER'S ONLY REMEDY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT FOR VIOLATION BY THE OTHER PARTY OF A THIRD PARTY'S INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS.



Limitation of Liability



  1. Informal Resolution Mover wants to address your concerns without resorting to a formal legal case. Before filing a claim, each party agrees to try to resolve the dispute by contacting the other party through the notice procedures in section Miscellaneous(5). If a dispute is not resolved within 30 days of notice, Customer or Mover may bring a formal proceeding.
