Data Security Policy:
Last updated: May 17, 2021
This policy outlines behaviors expected of users when dealing with data and provides a classification of the types of data with which they should be concerned. This Data Security policy does not applicable while onsite use at www.virtualpca.com. This policy is applicable for the users who transfer their project data to Virtual Pc Assistant.
Background to this policy
Data leakage prevention is designed to make users aware of data they are transferring which may be sensitive or restricted to be used by certain users alone.
Here at VPA, all your project data whether sensitive, confidential, commercial or restricted on Virtual Pc Assistant is transferred through MEGA Data Solutions. The data is encrypted with a key derived from your password; in other words, your password is your root encryption key. Either MEGA or VPA does not have access to your password or your data. Using a strong and unique password will ensure that your data is protected from being hacked and gives you total confidence that your information will remain just that – yours till you release it to us.
Your data remains secure till we own it. The data will be deleted from the MEGA servers once the contract is concluded.
Whenever data is transferred, we use encryption key and decryption key. The data once locked cannot be unlocked without the decryption key whatsoever be. Hence, we request you to share project details (any/ if any) through the secure environment.
A few key Data Policy of MEGA:
Data security is very important to Mega, whether that is your personal information or any other data. That is why we publish our client-side browser and mobile app software, provide a bug bounty to encourage reporting on any issues, and why we have provided information in this Policy on collection and storage of all data whether or not it is personal information. For more information on our security practices, see our security.
All Your Files remain encrypted at all times while they are on our system. They are never received, stored or otherwise dealt with by us in unencrypted form because any decryption takes place only on your device or that of another user to whom you have provided the file/folder links and keys that are created when you give them access. Your Files are therefore not personal data under the GDPR (or “personal information” as we refer to it under the New Zealand Privacy Act 2020) since they are never held by MEGA in a form that is information about an identified or identifiable natural person.
Although Your Files are not personal information within our system because you have encrypted them, you should know that we store Your Files and make them available from servers that are owned and controlled by us, in secure facilities in Europe or in countries (such as Canada or New Zealand) that the European Commission has determined to have an adequate level of protection under Article 45 of the GDPR and which have comparable protections to those given by the New Zealand Privacy Act 2020, depending where you are based. None of Your Files are stored in, or made available from, the United States of America.
We keep Your Files while you are subscribed to our services but subject to our suspension and termination rights set out in our Terms. You must maintain copies of Your Files. We do not make any guarantees that there will be no loss of data or the services will be bug free. You should download Your Files prior to termination of services including where the administrator of a business account, within which you have used the services, terminates that business account (see clause 13 below). If you forget your password you will lose access to all Your Files unless you have exported a Recovery Key.
When you delete one of Your Files it will be made inaccessible, marked for deletion and removed when the next appropriate file purging process is run, subject to any retention specifically allowed under this Policy or our Terms. After account termination, all Your Files will be marked for deletion and removed when the next appropriate file purging process is run, subject to any retention specifically allowed under this Policy or our Terms.
The deletion process specified in above will not apply to a deduplicated file that is associated with another user (see our Terms).
We strongly urge you to use best practices for ensuring the safety of your systems and devices (e.g. via strong unique passwords, security upgrades, firewall protection, anti-virus software, securing devices). MEGA will never send an email asking for your password, so do not be fooled by any such email since it will not be from us. We cannot guarantee the security of computers or devices nor of transmission from and to your device over the Internet and thus cannot guarantee there will be no unauthorized access. Also, if you lose or otherwise allow access to your password or encryption keys, you will lose the security of all your data. If you forget your password you will lose access to all your data unless you have exported a Recovery Key. Using the same password for MEGA as you have used at other sites can lead to others accessing and taking control of your MEGA account if one of those other sites is breached or hacked.
