Security of internal/proprietary data

If I load my companies internal/proprietary data into GenomeBrowse, will my proprietary data EVER leave my company's firewall? For example, does the data get pushed from GenomeBrowse to a GoldenHelix server or does it get pushed to the Cloud?

Hey Rob,

I understand that this is a legitimate concern.

I can assure you that there no uploading of the contents of any of your data.

The purpose of the registration and account authentication is to allow for engagement through this community site and to have credentials for accessing secure cloud-based content (like our EA Pipelines and Illumina Basespace integration).

I have ideas about allowing for users to explicitly share projects and maybe even subsets of data as well through a cloud-based repository, but those of course would be things you opt in to very explicitly.

Thanks, Gabe
