achow.tv's Security Policy
achow.tv takes steps to safeguard your personal information through vigorous physical, electronic and operational policies and practices. Data can only be read or written through defined service access points, the use of which is password-protected. The physical security of the data is achieved through a combination of network firewalls (there is no direct communication allowed between the database server and the Internet) and servers with hardened operating systems are all housed in a secure facility. Access to the system, both physical and electronic, is tightly controlled and limited to only those employees or third parties who have a need to know. We do not allow visibility of your Social Security number, bank account information, or credit card information via the Website. Further, we also equip our servers with Secure Socket Layer (SSL) certificate technology to ensure that when you connect to our Website you are actually on our Website. SSL also ensures that all data entered into the Website are encrypted. To verify that SSL is being used, look for the key or padlock icon on your browser. For further encryption protection, we use a 256-bit secure browser for logins and transactions.
Although achow.tv has a stringent process in place to prevent fraudulent persons from using stolen identities to acquire loans, there are still limited times when identity theft occurs. achow.tv will work with law enforcement authorities to track down and prosecute persons who have committed identity theft.
achow.tv's servers are hosted in two data centers and we backup all of our data in an off-site data center. However, we can provide no assurance that the service provided by such third-party vendors are adequate and, although widely used, will be sufficient to protect your data.
At a minimum, we require the use of both numbers and letters in your password. We have also instituted secure steps by which you can regain access to your account should you forget your password, including the use of a security question. Your password is not known to any employee or third party with whom we may partner, and we will never ask for your password as a means of identifying yourself. You should never share your password with anyone, and if you ever receive an email purporting to come from achow.tv that asks for your password, you should immediately report this development.
In addition to our own substantial efforts, you can take several precautions to protect the security of your computer and personal information. For instance, you can start by using a well-chosen password. You should avoid using any information that others can easily learn about you, such as a family member's name or birthday, and you can also use special characters in place of letters. In addition, we recommend that you change your password frequently.
You can install and regularly update antivirus and firewall software to protect your computer from external attacks by malicious users. When you are finished with a session on our Website, be sure that you log out and close the browser window. To protect your account, we send automatic notifications confirming certain actions taken on your account, such as changes to a password or external linked account. We do this for your own protection so that you can be sure no one else is making changes to your account without your knowledge. However, the security offered through these notifications can be undermined if other people have access to your email account. Therefore, you might consider restricting access to the email account you registered with on this Website and/or changing your password on that email account frequently.
If you use a computer that is accessed by other people, such as in a public library or Internet cafe, we recommend that you take special precautions to protect the security of your Account and personal data. When you are finished using our Website, you should log out completely, then close the browser window and clear the browser's cache files. You should also be aware of fraudulent attempts to gain access to your account information known as "phishing." Phishing is a tactic used by scammers in which unsuspecting people are brought to a website by a genuine-looking email purporting to be from a legitimate company. The phony or "spoof" email takes the person to a website that looks legitimate but in fact is not. Either in the email itself or on this fake Website, scammers will ask for login information to gain access to people's accounts and withdraw their money. achow.tv will never ask you for your login information in the context of any email. In general, you can protect yourself against phishing by never providing personal or login information via an email-instead, go the webWebsite directly. You might also make it a habit to check the URL of a website to be sure that it begins with the correct domain. In the case of achow.tv , you should always ensure the URL begins with https://www.achow.tv or https://achow.tv
