Software Information

BriefCatch 3 is a SaaS product available as a Microsoft Word add-in. You can download BriefCatch 3 from the Microsoft AppSource store and deploy it via the Microsoft 365 admin center. BriefCatch 3 supports Microsoft Single Sign-On for account creation and access.

BriefCatch 3 runs on Google Cloud, which defends your data against threats and fraudulent activity using the same infrastructure Google uses for its own operations. Google’s 500+ security engineers, including some of the world’s foremost experts, work around the clock to spot threats early and respond quickly.

As explained in more detail below, BriefCatch does not retain and no BriefCatch employee can view content from your documents or the proprietary suggestions our software offers to you.

Supported versions include Microsoft Word 2016 or later on Windows, Microsoft Word 2016 or later on macOS, and Microsoft Word for Web (Microsoft 365).

Data Processing & Data Retention

BriefCatch 3 uses real-time data streams to process documents on secure servers. The server returns only the results of the scan. We do not—and our vendors, including Google, do not—collect, log, or retain the original document text nor the text from the scan. No one can view any of the original document text or the text from the scan, including during the scan itself.

All connections to and from BriefCatch are encrypted using TLS 1.2/1.3. All connections are secured using SSL.

PII & User Data

We log limited user data, such as user settings within the app and basic user information like name and email address. None of the data we collect allows us or any other party to reconstruct the text from your documents.

Any company or user can submit a support request to remove their data entirely from BriefCatch.

Servers & Hosts

We use servers hosted by Google Cloud:

And databases by Google Firebase:

All servers are located in the United States.
