Service Providers: It is also necessary for Dav El | BostonCoach to engage third-party companies in order to operate and provide the Services.

  1. Security

The security of your personal information is important to us. Your account information is protected by a password. It is important that you protect against unauthorized access to your account and information by choosing your password carefully and by keeping your password and computer secure, such as by signing out after using the Services.

Dav El | BostonCoach follows the industry best practices to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and after it is received. Some of these standards are:

  • Encryption of certain information (such as credit card numbers) using secure socket layer technology (SSL);
  • Protection of the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of all customer information systems;
  • Definition and monitoring of IT security standards aligned with industry regulations;
  • Implementation of vulnerability management techniques according to which we scan and map our network, prioritize areas of importance and apply fixes and safeguards;
  • Application of safeguard firewalls and anti-virus tools to detect/prevent attacks;
  • Continuous monitoring for security risks and maintenance of patch updated infrastructure;
  • Over 85 policies encompassing data security;
  • Security awareness trainings to our personnel.

With specific regard to credit card information, we comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (“PCI DSS”) by (but not limited to) designing, implementing, and maintaining a coherent set of standards and procedures to manage risks to cardholder data – in an effort to ensure an acceptable level of Information Security risk – and by conducting yearly PCI DSS audits.

We regularly review, test and update our security policies and systems in order to meet the highest standards of data security. Unfortunately, no method of transmission over the internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
