Data Flow Diagram

How does data flow between your accounting system and DonkeyBean?

DonkeyBean pulls information from Xero – it does not push any data to Xero.

DonkeyBean leaves your data untouched in Xero.  We copy the data we need, and then create the projections and run the reports in DonkeyBean.

The data we pull into DonkeyBean includes:

  • Your organisation name, country, currency, users and timezone
  • Repeating invoices
  • Account codes

How do we protect your information?

Protecting your data in DonkeyBean is very important to us. We use an SSL certificate to encrypt all information that is passed through the site.

Our database is encrypted at rest, including all backups of the data, using the industry standard AES-256 encryption algorithm for encryption. We use a secure key management system for the encryption keys.  The database is located in a private-subnet and therefore not publicly accessible.

On top of this, all financial amounts from invoice line items are stored using additional encryption in our database. The reports that DonkeyBean creates for your company will only be seen by you.  We don’t see your reports, or even any invoice line amount. If you have a question about any totals in your reports you’ll need to send us a screenshot, or grant DonkeyBean temporary visibility to your account in the DonkeyBean interface.
