What Is a Data Room UK?

A data room is a safe platform for online document storage that can be used for sharing and exchanging confidential documents. It is typically used during the due diligence phase of the closing of a deal but it’s also increasingly used for other reasons, such as fundraising and business restructuring.

Data rooms are designed to streamline and aid in the due diligence process. They allow companies to share sensitive documents with potential business partners and investors in a secure, user-friendly and easy-to use environment. They can be used to support a wide range of business transactions like mergers and acquisitions including joint ventures, capital raising, restructuring, listing on stock exchanges and debt financing.

Users can be invited by virtue of their contribution or role to the project, by using an array of pre-defined or custom addresses. They can then be granted or restricted access to specific folders, documents, or even the entire contents of the data room. This makes sure that only those with the right to view the information are able to do so and helps to ensure that there is no unauthorised sharing. User audit trails for each user are available to ensure that everyone can see who has seen what and when – essential for legal reasons.

Robust security features include watermarking roles-based access, antivirus scanning and data encryption. The system can be configured to meet specific standards of compliance for the biotechnology, legal and medical industries, such as ISO 27001, GDPR, GCP and HIPAA. This can increase the efficiency and lower operating costs.
