Email Communication from Vayana Network Network
Vayana Network may allow Companies to subscribe to email newsletters and from time to time may transmit emails promoting Vayana Network.
VN subscribers have the ability to opt-out of receiving Vayana Network’s promotional emails and to terminate their newsletter subscriptions by following the instructions in the emails. Opting out in this manner will not end transmission of service-related emails, such as email alerts.
SECURITY OF CUSTOMER’S DATA
VN uses a combination of firewall barriers, encryption techniques and authentication procedures, among others, to maintain the security of the Customer’s online session and to protect accounts and systems from unauthorized access.
When the Customer registers for the Service, VN requires a password from the Customer for the Customer’s privacy and security. Vayana Network uses industry-standard 128 bit secure socket layer (SSL) encryption to protect data transmissions between the Customer’s browser and VN’s servers, such as the Customer’s Registration Information for VN or Account Credentials.
Vayana Network’s servers are in a secure third party facility. Vayana Network’s databases are protected from general employee access both physically and logically. VN stores a salted digest for the Customer’s Service password so that the Customer’s password cannot be recovered even by Vayana Network. All backup drives and tapes are encrypted.
However, it is important to understand that these precautions apply only to VN’s Site and systems. While Vayana Network Network will have contractual agreements with third parties around data security, Vayana Network exercises no control over how the Customer’s information is stored, maintained or displayed by third parties or on third-party sites.
VAYANA’S SERVICE ENSURES SECURE COMMUNICATION WITH ENCRYPTION
From the time the Customer submits the Customer’s Login ID and Password, these communications between the Customer’s computer and VN are encrypted using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL3) technology. SSL enables Customer and server applications to communicate in a way that is designed to prevent eavesdropping, tampering and message forgery.
IN THE EVENT OF A SECURITY BREACH
Vayana Network uses stringent security measures to prevent loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control. If any user has sufficient reason to believe that their data has been compromised or there has been a breach of security, you may write to us immediately on the contact details given in this policy so that we may take suitable measures to either rectify the breach and inform the concerned authorities if need be.
THE CUSTOMER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR MAINTAINING CONFIDENTIALITY OF THE CUSTOMER’S LOGIN ID AND PASSWORD
Vayana Network maintains strict rules to help prevent others from guessing the Customer’s password. VN also recommends that the Customer change the Customer’s password periodically. The Customer is responsible for maintaining the security of the Customer’s Login ID and Password. The Customer may not provide these credentials to any third party. If the Customer believes that they have been stolen or been made known to others, the Customer must contact VN immediately, but in any event the Customer should change the Customer’s password immediately via the Service. VN is not responsible if someone else accesses the Customer’s account through Registration Information they have obtained from the Customer or through a violation by the Customer of this Privacy and Security Policy or Vayana Network’s Terms of Service.
If the Customer has a security related concern, it should contact Vayana Network. Vayana Network will work closely with the Customer to ensure a rapid and personal response to the Customer’s concerns.
