Security of Your Information
ContractRoom places a high value on the corporate and personal data you entrust to us. For this reason, we secure your company data and Personal Information at three levels: physical, application, and network layers.
The physical layer is protected by need-to-know authorization by only the appropriate operations individuals. Additionally, the servers are caged within a room only accessible through biometric scanning. The application layer is entirely secured with SSL (secure socket layer) encryption technology so all communication with the website is locked. The network layer is protected by industry leading firewall technology and administered real-time to ensure timely security patching. This layer is also monitored by intrusion-detection systems to ward off unauthorized access.
These safeguards are intended to protect your data and Personal Information and to ensure the proper and legal use of the Site. However, no security system is impenetrable and no one can guarantee that any information will be totally secure.
Control of Your Password
You are responsible for all actions taken with your User ID and password, including fees charged to your account, and all actions taken with your account. Therefore, we do not recommend that you disclose your ContractRoom.com password to any third parties. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personal information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately change your password.
