If neither Applicable Laws nor these Terms specifically address a particular data security or privacy issue, you will use appropriate, the generally accepted practices of your industry to protect the confidentiality, security, privacy, integrity, availability, and accuracy of the potentially affected Protected Data.
You agree that, in the event of a breach of these Terms, neither bitdoor nor any relevant data contributor (which may be a natural person or business) will have an adequate remedy in damages. bitdoor or an affected data contributor will therefore be entitled to seek injunctive or equitable relief to immediately cease or prevent the further use or disclosure of Protected Data and ensure compliance with all Applicable Laws.
In the event and to the extent that the Applicable Laws impose stricter obligations on you than the express obligations under these Terms, you shall comply with the obligations under the Applicable Laws.
YOUR SECURITY OBLIGATIONS
Safeguarding Protected Data. You shall use, store, and access Protected Data with that degree of skill, care, and judgment customarily accepted as sound, quality, and professional practices. You shall implement and maintain safeguards necessary to ensure the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of Protected Data. You shall also implement and maintain any safeguards required to be implemented by Applicable Laws.
Such safeguards must include, as appropriate, and without limitation, the following:
- System Security. Any system that is owned or operated by you and contains Protected Data (“System”) shall be secured as follows:
- You shall implement controls reasonably necessary to prevent a breach.
- The System must use secure protocols and encryption to safeguard Protected Data in transit.
- You understand the System may not be placed on a public network and you shall implement safeguards reasonably necessary to protect its System from compromises and attacks. You will protect the System with firewalls.
- You shall additionally:
- Limit administrative access to the System;
- Limit remote access to the System;
- Limit account access and privileges to the least necessary for the proper functioning of the System;
- Remove or disable applications and services that are not necessary for the proper functioning of the System;
- Use named user accounts and not generic or shared accounts;
- Use Federated Single Sign On, Kerberos, or other industry compliant services for authentication and authorization; and
- Enable an appropriate level of auditing and logging for the operating system and applications;
Data Protections. You shall implement controls reasonably necessary to prevent unauthorized use, disclosure, loss, acquisition of, or access to Protected Data. This includes, but is not limited to personnel security measures, such as background checks. All transmissions of Protected Data by you shall be performed using a secure transfer method.
Information Security Incident Reporting and Response. If you become aware of an Information Security Incident, you shall use reasonable efforts to promptly alert bitdoor, and shall immediately take such actions as may be necessary to preserve forensic evidence and eliminate the cause of the Information Security Incident. You shall give highest priority to immediately correcting any Information Security Incident and shall devote such resources as may be required to accomplish that goal. You shall provide bitdoor information necessary to enable bitdoor to fully understand the nature and scope of the Information Security Incident. If required by Applicable Laws, you shall provide notice and credit monitoring to parties affected by any Information Security Incident. Upon request, you shall provide bitdoor information about what you have done or plan to do to mitigate any deleterious effect of the unauthorized use or disclosure of, or access to, Protected Data. In the event that an Information Security Incident requires your assistance in reinstalling software or reconstructing databases or servers, such assistance will be provided at your cost and expense. bitdoor may discontinue your access to the Platform until bitdoor, in its sole discretion, determines that the cause of the Information Security Incident has been sufficiently mitigated.
Compliance Review. To access or use the Platform and bitdoor Services, you must successfully pass bitdoor’s compliance reviews, which may include automated verifications, online questionnaires, requests for information, and review of your most recent information security audit report and that of any datacenter in which Protected Data is stored (“Compliance Reviews”). As part of the Compliance Reviews, you must provide reasonably prompt responses to bitdoor’s requests for information about you, your application, your business and associated entities, and your intended use of the Platform and bitdoor Services. You represent and warrant that all information you provide to bitdoor as part of any Compliance Review will be accurate and complete, and you will immediately notify bitdoor if any previously provided information is out-of-date or becomes inaccurate. You may be required to complete more than one Compliance Review, as requested by bitdoor based on changes in your use of the Platform or increased risk factors. Your passage or failure of any Compliance Review is in bitdoor’s sole discretion. If you fail any Compliance Review or you fail to provide prompt and complete responses within three business days after bitdoor’s requests for information (even if you have passed a previous Compliance Review or received provisional access to the Platform), bitdoor may suspend, revoke, or terminate your access to the Platform, without notice or liability to you.
As between bitdoor and you, the Platform, bitdoor Services, and any related software, products, works, and other intellectual property created, used, or provided by bitdoor, and all Intellectual Property Rights therein or relating thereto, are and will remain the exclusive property of bitdoor or its licensors (except for Personal Data, which belongs to the Consumer). You will not remove, alter, or obscure any copyright, trademark, service mark, or other proprietary rights notices incorporated in or accompanying the Platform or bitdoor Services.
In the event of any claims that you have infringed or misappropriated the Intellectual Property Rights of any third party through the use of the Platform or bitdoor Services, bitdoor will reasonably cooperate with you in the resolution of such claim. Such cooperation is at bitdoor’s sole discretion and may include, but is not limited to, the licensing of bitdoor’s Intellectual Property Rights to you to demonstrate non-infringement or your lack of misappropriation.
Definition. The parties may have access to each other’s Confidential Information. “Confidential Information,” as used in these Terms, means any written, machine-reproducible, and/or visual materials that are clearly labeled as proprietary, confidential, or with words of similar meaning, and all information that is orally or visually disclosed, if not so marked, if it is identified as proprietary or confidential at the time of its disclosure or in a writing provided within thirty (30) days after disclosure. bitdoor Confidential Information includes, without limitation, the Platform, any usernames and passwords used to access the Platform, and any other sensitive information whether in source or executable code, documentation, nonpublic financial information, pricing, business plans, techniques, methods, processes, and the results of any performance tests of the Platform or bitdoor Services.

Use and Nondisclosure. During the Subscription Term and for a period of five (5) years after expiration or termination of a Subscription Form, or longer as required by applicable, neither party shall make the other’s Confidential Information available to any third party or use the other’s Confidential Information for any purposes other than exercising its rights and performing its obligations under these Terms. Each party shall take all reasonable steps to ensure that the other’s Confidential Information is not disclosed or distributed by its employees or agents in violation of the these Terms, but in no event will either party use less effort to protect the Confidential Information of the other party than it uses to protect its own Confidential Information of like importance. Each party will ensure that any agents or subcontractors that are permitted to access any of the other’s Confidential Information are legally bound to comply with the obligations set forth herein or substantially similar obligations. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Confidential Information may be disclosed as required by any governmental agency, provided that before disclosing such information the disclosing party must provide the non-disclosing party with sufficient advance notice of the agency’s request for the information to enable the non-disclosing party to exercise any rights it may have to challenge or limit the agency’s authority to receive such Confidential Information.
