3. SECURITY MEASURES
A. Data Security
Each instance of the Application is password-protected and is configured to enforce SSL (128-bit encryption or stronger) to secure access. Passwords are selected using a password strength feature permitting a minimum of eight (8) characters; however, the number of required characters may be configured to be greater than eight (8) characters. Passwords are stored on secure database servers and can only be accessed or updated by parties having sufficient access permissions. Passwords are not sent in clear text over the Internet if the Application is configured to enforce SSL.
Multiple failed login attempts result in users being locked out of the Application. Tracker does not provide VPN to VPN, direct database, or any out-of-band access. All data access is restricted to the web-based platform itself, except for API and other integration methodologies supported by Tracker.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us. We follow generally accepted standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and when we store and process it in our data center. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security when we have endeavored to follow generally accepted standards. In addition, we do not take responsibility for your systems, the Internet itself or any third-party networks or services used to transmit data which are outside the firewall of the data center we use to process and store your Personal Information. If you have any questions about the security on our website or our services, please contact us.
4. Disclosure of Information for Law Enforcement
Tracker may disclose Personal Information as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal or security process when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect the safety of our users or others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request.
