If you subscrribe to our service, your company name and website will be stored in our database. They will be visible to other subscribers, if they request a report for a client that you previously submitted.
Your company information will not be searchable. We will not disclose your membership details, like your email address or company details, to any potential advertiser or partner.
"Client Information" is a part of our service, it is the submitted information of the clients of the users of our service. When one of our users submit information about their clients for reporting or verification purposes, we store the received information as "client information".
Our service requires collection of client information, in a uniquely encrypted way which cannot be reversed by any feasible means by anyone.
We only request and accept client information scrambled with an industry standard one-way encryption algorithm. The algorithm is a standard SHA-1 hash, iterated 32,000 times, and during each iteration, prefixed with a custom string that is "fraudrecord-". We only accept the final result, not the sensitive source information. If all guidelines are followed by our users, unsecured and sensitive client information never reaches our servers, and we have no way of storing or using unsecured information.
Current industry standards and professional opinions of the experts in the field of data security all agree that this iterated and prefixed SHA-1 hash system is a one-way encryption, and there is no feasible way to retrieve actual client information from a hashed result. Our guarantee about the irreversibility of the encrypted information goes as far as the guarantees of the industry experts do.
It is possible for our members to inadvertently submit unsecured client data in the name of "extra information", but we highly discourage it. We do not endorse or recommend submitting any unsecured client information.
Any client information that may be submitted via our website for encryption on our side, is immediately destroyed from our server memory, leaving only the securely encrypted version in our permanent database.
All access to our system involving sensitive client information (even if they are encrypted with industry standard algorithms) is provided through 128-bit or higher SSL encryption protocols.
We protect our database as much as technically possible from any intrusion. We only provide verification of a specific client data, we do not provide or allow any type of public listing of the stored information.
We provide all encryption and security protocols that can be technically provided between two distant servers. We do not accept any responsibility of leaked client information if the member fails to adhere to the standards we have laid out and provided.
Accepting to use our service means the user acknowledges that we do everything in our power to protect all information available to us, but we cannot guarantee any form of absolute security. We do not accept any responsibility or liability, financial or otherwise, concerning the client information of our users, in case of any form of security breach. Use our service at your own risk.
We reserve the right to change our policies at any time. We will notify our users of any pending changes, via email and our web portal, prior to any change. Users can cancel their membership and terminate their use of our services at any time.
