Sharing Your Information
Protecting your Information
Our goal is to protect the personal information you submit to us through this Website both in
transmission and once received. We and our service providers have implemented technical and
organizational measures designed to protect against loss or unauthorized access, disclosure,
alteration or destruction of the information you provide on our Website. Despite these efforts, no
security measures, however thorough, are perfect. Accordingly, we do not guarantee the
security of the information you provide to us.
Data security is achieved through technical safeguards that include a combination of firewalls, intrusion detection system, malware detection system, and data loss prevention systems. VentureOp also conducts vulnerability scans of applications and systems regularly.
Access to the system is limited to only those who have a need to access information. Administrative safeguards such as a security awareness program, background checks, and our information security policy ensure that only trained and trusted staff are permitted to access personal information. Some additional features of our security program include:
Secure Data Center
VentureOp uses an industry leading infrastructure service provider for its computing
infrastructure needs. VentureOp’s cloud infrastructure facility (provided through the service
provider) is enabled with encryption and data protection capabilities for the systems and
services we develop and/or deploy within. VentureOp’s infrastructure provider is SOC 1, SOC 2,
and SOC 3 compliant.
Physical access to the data center is strictly controlled and we use the latest threat prevention technologies such as network and web application firewalls, VPN, antivirus, intrusion detection systems, web filtering and antispam technologies.
Website Security Certificates
VentureOp equips all customer facing services with an Extended Validation (EV) Secure Socket Layer (SSL) certificate to ensure that when you connect to our websites you can tell that you are actually on our Website and that all data entered into the websites are transmitted to us in a secure encrypted channel. Once on our system, personal information can only be read or written through defined service access points, the use of which is password-protected.
We employ session time-outs to protect your account. You will be logged out of the Website automatically after a specified period of inactivity. This time-out feature reduces the risk of others being able to access your account if you leave your computer unattended.
You should always choose a password that is difficult for others to guess and change your
password frequently. 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.
You should never share your password with anyone. Your password is not known to any VentureOp employee or third party, and we will never ask for your password by phone or email. If you ever receive a communication claiming to be from VentureOp that asks for your password, you should immediately report it by contacting us at (408) 705-5005.
Security Awareness Training
We conduct security awareness training for all staff at least annually and provide additional training on VentureOp privacy and security-related policies and procedures for personnel that have access to sensitive information. We instruct staff that access must be used only in adherence with the priples set forth in this Policy and applicable laws, and for no other purpose. Personnel who misuse customer information are subject to disciplinary action.
