At BabyLovesScience we take security very seriously.


BabyLovesScience is hosted in data centres that are among the safest and most modern in the world with a minimum of 99.99% availability. BabyLovesScience uses Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption (also known as HTTPS) for all transmitted data.

Data storage and backups

All personal information (e.g. parent and child names, email addresses) is encrypted using strong AES-256 encryption. The encrypted data is backed up daily.

Penetration and vulnerability testing

Regular penetration and vulnerability testing is carried out to ensure the site is secure. We also invite organisations that we work with to test BabyLovesScience to ensure we meet their standards.

Who has access to which information

Parents can only access their own children’s data. Researchers can only access anonymised result sets. The website administrator has access to all information.
