When cloudHQ replicates, backs up, or syncs data between cloud accounts, your data is never permanently stored on our servers.

Here is a short overview of how cloudHQ replicates data:

  1. cloudHQ connects securely to both the source and the target cloud services via API (e.g. Google Drive API as the source, and Dropbox API as the target). The connection is established via SSL using OAuth 2.0 for authentication.
  2. Data is sent via a secure and encrypted link from the source cloud service (e.g. Google Drive), and then uploaded directly to the target cloud service (e.g. Dropbox). Please note again that no transferred data is ever permanently stored on our servers.
