Personal data protection
License Vault does not access or store code or other data that you and your users work with. But to provide the service, it accesses some user authentication and license allocation data.
In this article, you'll learn exactly which data License Vault stores and how it processes it.
Types of personal data
Since License Vault requires authorization through JetBrains Hub, it collects personal data. Both License Vault and JetBrains Hub collect the data.
JetBrains Hub collects and stores the following personal data to identify users:
email address, and other user information. For the full list of collected data, refer to Personal Data in Hub.
License Vault collects and stores the following end users' information:
machine ID, and
OS hostname. Also, to provide license usage statistics it stores
build numbers, and
allocated licenses. Additionally, License Vault has access to the
group membershipsdata stored in JetBrains Hub.
Data access and encryption
The License Vault databases are available only within a trusted subnet without public access. The access to the subnets is controlled by the Identity and Access Management (IAM) policies.
We encrypt data at rest and in transit.
Data at rest is stored in an encrypted Relational Database Service (RDS) instance on AWS. Backups and snapshots are also stored using AWS services and are encrypted. To learn more about RDS encryption, refer to Amazon documentation regarding this topic.
When data is in transit between the application code and RDS instances, it is also encrypted. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connections to ensure security. Plain insecure connections are prohibited.
Your IDE, .NET tool, or plugin only establishes temporary connections to License Vault.
License Vault connects to the following resources:
The JetBrains Hub instance associated with your License Vault – to authenticate users and retrieve user information.
The JetBrains Account portal at
https://account.jetbrains.com– to retrieve up-to-date license information.
To know more about the connections established between your JetBrains product, License Vault, and other services involved in the licensing process, refer to Connections established to obtain and use a license.
The License Vault and RDS instances are located in the
eu-west-1 region in AWS. The JetBrains Hub data is also stored in the
