The data you store on Geens is totally private. Even Geens administrators cannot see it.
You are the only one who can access and manage it.
Private document storage is the backbone of the Geens platform. It can be compared to Dropbox or Google Drive, but Geens has a higher level of privacy.
Because of the end-to-end encryption, the unencrypted data never leaves the user's device. It is first encrypted on the user's side and only then is sent to the Geens servers.
High security standards guarantee that even in the worst case scenario, there are practically no chances to decrypt and steal Geens user's data. More about this in our FAQ.
Geens is user friendly, intuitive and simple. Using the floating cards interface, users can work with their documents directly on Geens. They can also securely share files.
Geens is GDPR compliant.
Geens encrypted document storage is connected to the Ethereum blockchain. The blockchain as a technology is immutable and incorruptible.
Geens users can timestamp their documents on the blockchain without revealing their document's content or their own identities.
Typical use cases of document timestamping:
protect copyrights, unique ideas or patents, to prove that the document was signed prior to a specific date, to acknowledge ownership, for virtual IDs and so on. Blockchain timestamps can be used as legal evidences in courts around the globe.
Some Geens users timestamp their files while other users work as legal assistants, consultants or validators and receive GEE tokens in return for their services.
Geens is a nonprofit organization (NPO). It is supervised by the ethical committee under the international law.
To cover operational costs, Geens provides premium services for individual users, custom solutions for enterprises and gets commissions from the GEE economy.
All extra profits are returned back to the NPO members. Geens users can opt-in to become NPO members and enjoy the benefits.
As a nonprofit organization, Geens can never be acquired by anyone.
