Responsible Disclosure Policy

Data security is a top priority for Formative, and Formative believes that working with skilled security researchers can identify weaknesses in any technology.

If you believe you've found a security vulnerability in Formative’s service, please notify us; we will work with you to resolve the issue promptly.

Disclosure Policy

  • If you believe you’ve discovered a potential vulnerability, please let us know by emailing us at security@formative.com. We will acknowledge your email promptly.
  • Provide us with a reasonable amount of time to resolve the issue before disclosing it to the public or a third party. 
  • Make a good faith effort to avoid violating privacy, destroying data, or interrupting or degrading the Formative service. Please only interact with accounts you own or for which you have explicit permission from the account holder.

While researching, we’d like you to refrain from:

  • Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS)
  • Spamming
  • Social engineering or phishing of Formative employees or contractors
  • Any attacks against Formative’s physical property or data centers

Thank you for helping to keep Formative and our users safe!
