How do we protect your information?
UNLESS implements the following technical, physical, and organizational measures to maintain the safety of your personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorized use, unauthorized modification, disclosure or access, and against all other unlawful forms of processing.
The Application Services utilize the extensive features of the cloud environment to ensure high availability, like full redundancy, load balancing, automatic capacity scaling, continuous data backup and geo-replication along with a traffic manager for automatic geographical failover on datacenter level disasters. All failover mechanisms are fully automated.
To ensure integrity, all data transits are encrypted to align with best practices for protecting confidentiality and data integrity. E.g. all sensitive/credit information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our payment gateway provider’s database only to be accessible by those who are authorized to access such systems and who are required to keep the information confidential.
Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.
UNLESS will at all times keep you informed about changes to the processes to protect data privacy and security, including practices and policies.
We do not use vulnerability scanning and/or scanning to PCI standards. An external PCI compliant payment gateway handles all payment transactions. We use regular Malware Scanning.
Compromise of Personal Information
In the event that personal information is compromised as a breach of security, UNLESS will promptly notify our customers in compliance with applicable law.
