Correlate creates a secure connection between your cloud services and you Correlate app, and this is a connection only you will have full control over. This makes your data stores in other services completely secure. We can’t access any of your files and content, because it is not stores somewhere we have access to. Event the stuff you upload through Correlate are stores in the cloud account you have as your primary one. So even if we wanted to give it away, we would never be able to find it.
