Welcome to Doppler™. Doppler is a platform for engineering teams to manage their digital authentication credentials, including passwords, API keys, certificates, tokens, and encryption keys across all of their environments, tools, and processes.
These Terms of Service (“Terms”) define your rights and our rights in relation to the use of the services provided by Doppler Technologies, Inc. (“Doppler”, “we”, “us”, “the Company”) through the website at doppler.com (the “Doppler Website”), through any applications and/or through any Command Line Interfaces (the “Doppler CLI”). The Doppler Website and applications, the Doppler CLI and the services provided by or through the Doppler Website and applications and the Doppler CLI are collectively known in these Terms as the “Services”.
Doppler is constantly modifying and improving the Services. We may introduce new products and features, change existing products and features, or discontinue products and features from the Services at any time. Currently we offer the following products:
1.1 Secrets Manager. Secrets Manager vaults and manages your secrets and configurations (“Secrets”). It includes access controls, logs, versioning and can also be installed for use in a local development environment using the Doppler CLI.
Projects and Environments: You can create projects on Secrets Manager to manage your Secrets. Each project holds a list of configurations that live in an environment and support user access control and versioning of changes. The environments currently supported in a project are development, staging and production.
User Access: Doppler currently offer 3 levels of user access for Secrets Manager – owner, admin and member. Owners have access to everything in the Doppler workplace. Admins have access to the entire Doppler workplace except the Team, Settings, and Billing dashboards. Members are individual contributors. They do not have access to Secrets Manager projects initially and must be added by an owner or admin. You can add users to your workplace through manual invites, email Single-Sign-On, and SAML Single-Sign-On. Note that Doppler may continue to modify/add access controls.
Additional Features: Secrets Manager supports combining Secrets with a straightforward pattern and has a few special secrets you can use which make it easier to track where you are in your CI/CD pipeline. A logging and versioning system is also built into Secrets Manager. Every action within a configuration, like adding a Secret, is logged.
1.2 Radar. Radar is a continuous monitoring tool that connects to GitHub and scans your repositories in real-time for accidentally committed Secrets, including API keys, database connection strings, credentials, certificates, and other sensitive data. This is intended to curb Secrets sprawl, fraudulent use of and unauthorized access to Secrets. Some of the use cases that Radar is designed to tackle with continuous usage are: (i) preventing new Secrets from entering your codebase, (ii) detecting attempts to bypass policies, (iii) tracking migration Secrets from codebase to Secrets manager over time, (iv) educating engineers on next steps and best security practices, and (v) detailing a disaster relief plan for rotation.
1.3 Doppler CLI. The Doppler Command Line Interface (CLI) provides a consistent experience when developing locally to production. It is a lightweight binary that comes provided in a number of package managers and Docker images.
2.1 If you sign up for an account on the Services, you agree to (a) provide accurate, current and complete information as may be prompted by account setup forms on the Services (“Registration Data”); (b) maintain the security of your password and account information; (c) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data, and any other information you provide to Doppler, and keep it accurate, current and complete. You are responsible for all activity on your Doppler account, and for all charges related to your Doppler account. Note that the Services are not intended for, and should not be used by, anyone under the age of 16.
2.2 Logging In. You can login to your Doppler account using (i) your Doppler credentials, (ii) your Google account or (iii) Single Sign-On (SSO) authentication (provided through third parties such as Okta, Azure Active Directory and Onelogin).
2.3 Two-factor Authentication. We offer two-factor authentication which adds another layer of security to your account. For example, if you choose two factor authentication via Authy, you'll be required to enter a time-sensitive code generated by your authenticator app during login.
2.4 Unauthorized Account Use. You agree to notify us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org if you become aware of any unauthorized use of or access to your account. You understand and agree that we may require you to provide information that may be used to confirm your identity and help ensure the security of your account.
3.1 Doppler Security. Doppler aims to keep your data secure by using end-to-end encrypted communication channels, encrypting data at rest, and by ensuring our infrastructure doesn’t have direct access to your Secrets. We also prohibit our employees from accessing any sensitive customer data (such as environment variables, Doppler issued API keys, and user passwords) without explicit customer permission and regularly assess our policies and practices to improve our security readiness.
To learn more about how data flows through our systems, where/how it is encrypted, and how your data is secured at rest with our security partner visit the Doppler security page. Doppler implements robust physical, technical and administrative security measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized or accidental access, destruction, use, modification or disclosure. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, and no means of electronic or physical storage, is entirely free of risk, and thus we cannot ensure or warrant the absolute security of your information.
3.2 User Support. In the event a Doppler support agent needs to access your workplace, you will need to manually grant them access by inviting them via email to the team page. We recommend restricting their access to those projects and configs that need assistance and revoking their access after the support ticket has been closed.
3.4 Subpoenas. Nothing in these Terms prevents us from disclosing your data to the extent required by law, subpoenas or court orders, but we will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify you where permitted to do so. Doppler strives to balance your privacy rights with other legal requirements.
