cloud computing security at cloud9 is a requirement, not an optionRTB Global, Inc. Security Policy

Security is of the utmost importance to RTB Global, Inc.  DBA Cloud9 Real Time (Company, RTB) and we store Client (Customer, User) documents in a secure, fully redundant SSAS70 Type II compliant data center backed by proven procedures to ensure that your files are as secure as possible. Our information and physical security processes and data storage environment ensure that your data is safe and secure at all times.

User Security

All data on RTB’s servers is automatically treated as private and confidential by default.  Data is only accessible to others if the client provides them with access.  All user access to your account is always password protected and encrypted.

Application Access Security

RTB uses established, secure password and privilege techniques to validate access to all application data.  Based on user privileges that you determine, RTB screens for proper access permissions before presenting data.

RTB employs an idle time out policy from our shared environment as a security feature and to maximize the resources of our application serves.  The idle time out period is set for 1 hour, however, this can be shortened based on time of day, server resource usage and other factors, but never less than 30 minutes.  Our virtual server environment also has an idle our period of 1 hour, however, arrangements can be made to alter this policy.  Please contact technical support if you desire to change this.

Data Storage Security 

RTB stores data at a SAS70 Type II compliant data center that assures the redundancy, power and network connections needed to securely host your data and ensure the availability of information when you need it.  These facilities provide a 99.9% network uptime guarantee and 24x7x365 monitoring.  RTB’s infrastructure is obtained in a Statement of Auditing Standards (SAS) 70 Type II Certified hosted data center with full redundancy and load balancing.  Firewall management and monitoring services are used as well as intrusion prevention systems to prevent unauthorized electronic access.

If you would like to obtain a copy of your documents for archival purposes, you can securely download all documents and files at your own convenience or order from RTB a backup of disks for a nominal fee.

However, none of the information stored in our log files, including but not limited to IP addresses, is linked to personally identifiable information.

Offers and Updates

Our customers and users will occasionally receive information on products, services, special deals, and possibly a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option to not receive these types of communications.

Service and Maintenance Announcements

On rare occasions it is necessary to send out a strictly service related announcement, if, for instance, our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance. Generally, users may not opt-out of these communications, though they can deactivate their account. However, these communications are not promotional in nature.

Cloud9 may use collected, aggregated, anonymous data from its users to share to potential investors or current shareholders. In such cases, only statistical information will be shared. Data in regards to personal information would only be released upon permission from the user, or a warrant.
