Protecting Client Data
Tekkis collects Client Data through information and files supplied by you. Tekkis and the Tekkis system were designed with security in mind. The Site is served over secure HTTPS and requires a username/password to access all sensitive or proprietary data, including all Client Data. However, while Tekkis highly suggests that organizations require strong passwords, each client user logins and permissions for users in their organization and mandates the type of passwords across their organization. Tekkis also suggests that all passwords are stored in a confidential location and updated frequently.
Data Tekkis Stores
Tekkis’s web logs and account records may be stored indefinitely. This may include any information you supply to Tekkis for your profile and/or accounts. However, Tekkis cannot guarantee access to weblogs and account records for more than fourteen business days after the original information was submitted.
Tekkis stores account information, including all uploaded data, for all active users for up to thirty days. Tekkis deletes all Client Data within thirty days of it being uploaded. Unless otherwise requested, Tekkis deletes Client Data six months after termination of services. It is your responsibility to keep a copy of all Client Data that you upload to the Site.
Data Privacy and Ownership
Tekkis’s policy is that each client's Client Data, with the exception of basic account information, belong to that client and that client only. Tekkis does not obtain ownership of a client's Client Data after it has been uploaded into the system. Tekkis only retains ownership of its proprietary system, including its features, tools, designs, schematics, functionality, patents, trademarks, copyrights, and other intellectual material that is not dependent on any individual client's Client Data. Tekkis cannot access any Client Data as it is encrypted upon upload.
Archiving and Display of Tekkis’s website by Search Engines and Other Websites
Search engines and other websites not affiliated with Tekkis - including Google.com and Yahoo.com - archive or otherwise make available Tekkis’s main public-facing corporate pages. Tekkis has no control over third party archiving and search engine websites and cannot guarantee the accuracy of any information stored by these websites. While information may be available to non-United States residents through search engines and other sites, only IP addresses registered in the United States can access the Site.
