Can I run Makersite locally?
Makersite is a multi-tenant cloud-based offering. Most of our customers use this option. However, for larger deployments with over 50 users, we offer the option of hosting our environment locally. For those that fall in between this range, we also offer a dedicated hosting option so your data is physically separated from others.
What happens to my data in the cloud?
Your data is your data. Always. We do not see or use your product data for any purpose unless you want us to.
How safe is my data?
We understand that product data can be extremely sensitive and have taken every technical and organizational measure necessary to ensure that your data remains safe and secure. Reach out to us and we can share details on how we manage security.
What data is included?
Makersite is the largest product knowledge graph in the world. Our databases cover a wide array of materials and substances, which allows you to model products from sectors such as automotive, electronics, packaging, food and more.
We monitor 40+ regulations including REACH, RoHS, Prop65 and several national GHS schemes. We also include most of the major LCA databases including Ecoinvent, IDEA and more.
In addition, we also develop data ourselves.
If we happen to not have the specific data sets required, we can always integrate it on client's demand.
For a complete list of the public and proprietary databases that are integrated, see data integrations.
How often is data updated?
All our data is kept up to date without you having to worry about it. For compliance data, we make updates as and when regulatory updates are posted on their respective websites. There may be a delay of a few weeks which is due to our internal data quality management process.
