5.    Security measures for Personal Data

  1. Access Control

    1. Preventing Unauthorized Product Access

      Authentication: Customers who interact with the products via the user interface must authenticate before accessing non-public customer data.

      Authorization: Customer data is stored in multi-tenant storage systems accessible to Customers via only application user interfaces and application programming interfaces. Customers are not allowed direct access to the underlying application infrastructure. The authorization model in each of Metaview’s products is designed to ensure that only the appropriately assigned individuals can access relevant features, views, and customization options. Authorization to data sets is performed through validating the user’s permissions against the roles associated with each user.

    2. Preventing Unauthorized Product Use

      Metaview implements industry standard access controls and detection capabilities for the internal networks that support its products.

      Access controls: Network access control mechanisms are designed to prevent network traffic using unauthorized protocols from reaching the product infrastructure. The technical measures implemented differ between infrastructure  providers and include Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) implementations, security group assignment, and traditional firewall rules.

      Static code analysis: Security reviews of code stored in Metaview’s source code repositories is performed, checking for coding best practices and identifiable software flaws.

    3. Limitations of Privilege & Authorization Requirements

      Product access: A subset of Metaview’s employees have access to the products and to customer data via controlled interfaces. The intent of providing access to a subset of employees is to provide effective customer support, to troubleshoot potential problems, to detect and respond to security incidents and implement data security. Access is enabled through “just in time” requests for access; all such requests are logged. Employees are granted access by role, and reviews of high risk privilege grants are initiated daily. Employee roles are reviewed at least once every six months.

      Background checks: All of Metaview’s employees undergo a third-party background check prior to being extended an employment offer, in accordance with the applicable laws. All employees are required to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with company guidelines, non-disclosure requirements, and ethical standards.

  2. Transmission Control
    1. In-transit: Metaview makes HTTPS encryption (also referred to as SSL or TLS) available on every one of its login interfaces and for free on every customer site hosted on Metaview’s products. Metaview’s HTTPS implementation uses industry standard algorithms and certificates.

    2. At-rest: Metaview has implemented technologies to ensure that stored data is encrypted at rest.

  3. Input Control

    1. Detection: Metaview designed its infrastructure to log extensive information about the system behavior, traffic received, system authentication, and other application requests. Internal systems aggregated log data and alert appropriate employees of malicious, unintended, or anomalous activities. Metaview’s personnel, including security, operations, and support personnel, are responsive to known incidents.

    2. Response and tracking: Metaview maintains a record of known security incidents that includes description, dates and times of relevant activities, and incident disposition. Suspected and confirmed security incidents are investigated by security, operations, or support personnel; and appropriate resolution steps are identified and documented. For any confirmed incidents, Metaview will take appropriate steps to minimize product and Customer damage or unauthorized disclosure.

    3. Communication: If Metaview becomes aware of unlawful access to Customer data stored within its products, Metaview will: 1) notify the affected Customers of the incident; 2) provide a description of the steps Metaview is taking to resolve the incident; and 3) provide status updates to the Customer contact, as reasonably requested by Customer. Notification(s) of incidents, if any, will be delivered to one or more of the Customer’s contacts in a form Metaview selects, which may include via email or telephone.

6.    Sub-processors of Personal Data

6.1    General Consent: Customer agrees that Metaview may engage third-party Sub-processors in connection with the provision of Services, subject to compliance with the requirements in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. As a condition to permitting a Sub-processor to Process Customer Data, Metaview will enter into a written agreement with each Sub-processor containing data protection obligations that provide at least the same level of protection for Customer Data as those in this Agreement, to the extent applicable to the nature of the Services provided by such Sub-processor. Metaview will provide copies of any Sub-processor agreements to Customer pursuant only upon reasonable request by Customer.

6.2     Current Sub-processor List: Customer acknowledges and agrees that Metaview may engage its current Sub-processors listed in the chart below.
