The security of Stiltsoft Europe OÜ ("Stiltsoft", "we" or "our") customers' data is our highest priority, and we follow the best practices to keep your data safe.


Handy Macros for Confluence app (the “app”) regularly undergoes checks against security vulnerabilities to increase the overall security level for our customers.

We also use CAIQ-Lite as a baseline mechanism to express our security posture and to provide security control transparency. The completed CAIQ-Lite questionnaire can be obtained upon request to our support via the Whistic platform.

If you have questions or feedback regarding security in the app or would like to report a security vulnerability, please contact our support.

Secure development

We follow the best practices and frameworks to ensure the highest level of security in our software:

  • Regular security training for developers to learn about common vulnerabilities and threats
  • Code review for security vulnerabilities
  • Regular update of the dependencies
  • Static Application Security Testing (SAST) to detect vulnerabilities in our codebase
  • Software Composition Analysis (SCA) tools to keep track of open source components used by your applications

Employee Access to Customer Data

The App’s team does not have access to user data. In cases where they have to access the user data in order to perform support services or to respond to an incident, we will ask for your consent. Our employees connect to the infrastructure via secure communication channels with several levels of protection.

Working on a support issue we only access the minimum data needed to resolve the issue.

Data Collection, Processing, and Retention

We collect some technical data, Confluence instance data, and user activity data. Such data is typically collected and generated through your interaction with us or our product. The data we collect does not include any personally identifiable information about you.

You can find out more about Data Collection and Third-Party Subprocessors in our app Privacy Policy

Security questions about Handy Macros for Confluence Data Center / Server

What data does the app store on its server?

The Data Center (Server) version of the app works inside the Confluence Java virtual machine (JVM) and uses its database. The app stores data either in the database or directly on Confluence pages. As Confluence is hosted on-premise, the customer is responsible for the Confluence infrastructure and settings. As the app's vendor, we are responsible for the compatibility with Confluence and proper app functioning. You can find more information on data collection in our Privacy Policy.

Does the app meet GDPR requirements?

When you use the Server or Data Center versions of the app, we don't access, collect, store or otherwise process your personal data, except in limited cases where such data is provided for incidental support services. Stiltsoft Europe is neither a data processor nor a data controller under GDPR for the purposes of the personal data you choose to process with the help of the app. For more details please see our Privacy Policy.
