Site certificate information
Bizztracker understands that the security of your personal information and business details is important to you. Whenever you submit personally identifiable or business identifiable information or transfer other information and documents to and from bizztracker.com, you will be doing so through secure servers.
The bizztracker.com service only allows secure browsers access to the system. The browser’s “secure mode” is in place only when you are logged in to the system. You will be able to tell that you are in a secure mode when your browser displays a special icon on the lower bar of your browser window. Every secure page (i.e. every part of the user interface) on bizztracker.com has been secured with a digital certificate. This is shown via the “site certificate” that is resident on all secure pages. To view this certificate, click on the image of the closed lock on the bottom bar of your browser window. A small frame displaying site security information will appear. This allows you to verify the site certification authority and that you are in fact on bizztracker.com or a sub-domain of bizztracker.com, e.g. app.bizztracker.com.
Only the members of a community in Bizztracker can see the community and access its contents. Each user selects his/her own password for bizztracker.com. The users’ passwords are stored in a one-way encrypted format and are not accessible to employees of Bizztracker.
After entering the required registration information as a new user you will be able to access your user account immediately. The password is chosen directly as part of the registration process and not sent to you by any other means.
If you have forgotten your password, or your password is not working for some reason, you can re-establish your identity with the system as follows:
- Go to app.bizztracker.com
- Follow the instructions shown under “Forget your password?”
- An email message will be sent to you with instructions to reset your password.
A password system has been established to ensure that only you can access your personal information and communities. The acceptable minimum password length is 6 characters. We recommend that you use a random combination of letters, numbers, and cases to provide added protection (for instance: ‘Hfg358mz’ would be a good password).
Each time you login to the system you will be required to authenticate your identity by entering your previously supplied e-mail address and password. Upon successful login, you are issued a unique “session id” (does not include any personally identifiable information) which allows you to remain active as long as actions are performed in the system. In case the session has timed out, it is required to re-enter your e-mail address and password. If an incorrect password is supplied, or if you simply forget your password, you may need to re-establish your identity following the instructions above.
After an undisclosed number of unsuccessful login attempts, you will be locked out.
Protection of information being transmitted
We use encryption technology to ensure the safe transmission of your information and documents when logged into the system. Your browser provides security by allowing us to use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption up to 128-bit key length encryption when transmitting information and documents. The number of bits of secret key length varies between 40 and 128 depending on your browser’s capability. The highest available bit length is always used. All communication between your computer and app.bizztracker.com is encrypted using SSL.
Protection of stored information
Bizztracker uses the AWS platform to operate the bizztracker application. AWS is a cloud application platform used by organizations of all sizes to deploy and operate applications throughout the world. This platform allows organizations to focus on application development and business strategy while AWS focuses on infrastructure management, scaling, and security. AWS applies security best practices and manages platform security so customers can focus on their business. The AWS platform inherently protects customers from threats by applying security controls at every layer from physical to application, isolating customer applications and data, and with its ability to rapidly deploy security updates without customer interaction or service interruption.
