We take our users' data security very seriously. Starting from internal development, operations and up to DevOps processes themselves have been constructed to provide maximum data security. From network and cloud instance logical security to physical data center security, AlgoDocs is able to secure services, data and access.
All transactions between you and AlgoDocs are SSL encrypted. Whenever our users upload their documents to AlgoDocs or obtain extracted data from AlgoDocs either using interface, API or other integrations, the communication is secured through HTTPS encryption. Moreover, user login passwords are stored in our databases one-way hashed using advanced hashing algorithms. Please read our Security and Compliance for more information.
All the documents you import to AlgoDocs and the data extracted from them are kept confidential and not accessed by anyone, except you. There are exceptional cases when your data might be accessed by our limited staff members only in cases you request technical support and assistance. We never disclose, use for own purposes or resell your documents or the data extracted from them.
Your documents are processed on Amazon Webservices Cloud. Our servers are always kept updated with latest releases and secured.
AlgoDocs offers a powerful API that you can use to integrate AlgoDocs into your own application. AlgoDocs API has several authentication methods including OAuth 2.0, which lets your application securely communicate with AlgoDocs.
Most common tasks that you can perform with AlgoDocs API:
AlgoDocs keeps your data for the number of days defined in your account settings. We are not interested in keeping your data longer than you need, so it is you who decides on the data retention duration. The default number of days for your data retention is 30 days.
You may change the number of days for data retention anytime you like. After logging in to your AlgoDocs account, click on your username on the top right corner and then click on 'Settings'. Change the number of days for data retention as shown below.
Yes, AlgoDocs has an On-Premises version that you can install on your own server and use in your local network without being connected to the Internet. Please contact us for more information.
No, reprocessing the same document does not cost you anything extra. Therefore, you may reprocess your documents multiple times and nothing will be deducted from your quota. Your quota is used only the first time your imported documents are processed.
Yes, of course. AlgoDocs is flexible in terms of quota usage. When your subscription is monthly, then your quota naturally will be reset every month. However, when you are on annual subscription, then your quota will be reset once a year only. Therefore, if you need you can use all of your quota given to you within the first month of your subscription or even keep it throughout a year and use all of it during the last month of your subscription period. In other words, your quota is not reset monthly when you are subscribed annually. So, when you are subscribed annually you are not forced to use your quota every month, but instead use your quota throughout a year whenever you need it.
No, it is not. The quota assigned to your subscription plan is expected to be used until the expiration of your subscription. If your usage varies from month to month, you may consider subscribing monthly to different plans based on your needs.
No, it is not. Your quota is used only in one case - processing a page and by "processing" we mean data extraction. Splitting operation does not involve data extraction, so we don't charge for it.
There is no any limitation on the size of documents imported to AlgoDocs. You may upload documents to AlgoDocs of any size, since AlgoDocs' OCR engine has automatic preprocessing operations that are applied to imported documents before actual data extraction is applied. Therefore, AlgoDocs handles everything for you in terms of document sizes and preprocessing issues.
There is no limitation on the number of pages your pdf documents have. AlgoDocs can process pdf files that contain not only hundreds of pages, but even thousands of pages. AlgoDocs is capable of extracting specific fields from thousands of pdf pages as well as tabular data that span over hundreds or thousands of pages.
AlgoDocs allows you to select the type of an engine in every extractor to apply when extracting data from a document. There are three options available:
The first option is the default one, which means that AlgoDocs will try to apply PDF Parser and if it fails extracting data from a document, then it will automatically apply OCR (Optical Character Recognition). Therefore, there are only two types of engines that you actually apply for extracting data from documents.
We have good news for you. No, you don't!
With AlgoDocs' advanced extracting rules you can process PDF files of any scenarios automatically. Your PDF files can contain several independent documents and as a result you would like to get extracted data for each independent document inside that long combined PDF file. Therefore, AlgoDocs splits combined PDF files automatically right after you import them. So, there are no manual steps that you need to do before importing your combined PDF files to AlgoDocs.
AlgoDocs has two engines for extracting data from documents - PDF Parser and OCR. Please read the following article to get more information on them and their difference.
