Yes, we also support SFTP, Dropbox, Google Drive, email and others. Let us know your needs and we’ll see how we can make that work.

Can you tell me more about how you protect data?

Deposited source code is encrypted in a single process when taking deposit. The encrypted source code is backed up at different locations around the world. The decryption keys are in our safes, which are inside a bank building. The codes only come out when a release event occurs.

Please send us an email and we’ll send you an excerpt of the agreement based on typical terms. Please keep in mind that the terms can be customised to suit your license agreement.

Can I pay by invoice?

Yes, you can. Please email [email protected] if you'd like to receive an invoice to start your subscription.

What payment methods do you support?

We support all mayor credit cards. Subscriptions are processed using Chargebee and payments are processed using Stripe. So you may see these names appear on your credit card statement.

Will I get a VAT invoice?

Yes, if you enter your VAT information during signing up you'll receive an invoice specifying the VAT amounts. All listed prices are excl. VAT.

When does the escrow process start?

After signing up for your plan you will receive on boarding information via email, that includes links to register your repositories and to add counter parties to them. We'll support you through the process to get all your code secured.

Does Codekeeper have access to the content that's deposited under escrow?

No, to ensure complete security and guarantee full integrity the deposited content is encrypted and stored in an automated process.

Where is the code under escrow stored?

We backup all encrypted escrow content at several undisclosed locations around the world. If you have regional data-storage restrictions we can accommodate those.
