Data Security Statement

Revised June, 2018


Financial Data Security:
Data security is our highest priority. As a matter of policy, we do not request or hold any of your financial information regarding your brokerage accounts or your credit/debit cards. We provide only technical investment analysis of Strategies and Portfolios you select or create. The responsibility is yours to connect with your brokerage and trade funds according to the conclusions you draw. Our subscription billing is conducted through the trusted third party Amazon Payments who provides an encrypted, secured interface and manages your financial information with the industry's best security practices. We have no access to your credit card information. When our server places your subscription order through Amazon Payments, the only information it receives in return from the Amazon Payments server is whether or was not payment was successfully received, which then enables or disables access to the current portfolio Buy/Sell indications.

When on the website of your brokerage or Amazon Payments, an icon, such as a lock or key, will be displayed in the corner of your browser's window to let you know that your browser's encryption is active. Most browsers today utilize an encryption method called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). SSL is software-based security protocol that encodes data before it is transmitted over the Internet.

Once you become a member, you will use a self-selected User Name and Password that serves as your first line of security defense for your non-financial information that we hold. You can help to ensure the security of your information by following these steps:

  • Never reveal your Username and Password to anyone. If you believe your password has been compromised, change the password.
  • Use Anti-Virus and Firewall software on your computer.
  • Review your Action Item Alerts received from us to ensure that the Alert is a result of one of your strategies, and is not the result of a hacker's phishing attack.
  • Always log off before leaving your computer.
  • Always log off of this Site before accessing other web sites.


Application Data Security:

Our server is managed by Hivelocity in Tampa, FL, one of six state-of-the-art data centers. Its dual redundant power system and high security physical environment have provided 100% network uptime since its 2012 commissioning.  

Our server data (your Strategies and Portfolios) is backed up daily with the Hivelocity Rapid-Restore service allowing the server configuration, application software and databases to be restored with the click of a button.

Additionally, Hivelocity provides OS updates and patches, server security hardening, Packet Scrubbing to ensure every data packet our server receives is valid, and DDoS Protection to automatically block over 90% of malicious traffic at the network level.
 


Operational Reliability:

Daily operation of our system is fully automated. No human intervention is required to (1) acquire and update daily market data; (2) process Strategy and Portfolio signals, charts and spreadsheets; (3) evaluate and post all StormGuard indicators; (4) adapt to ongoing changes in market conditions; and (4) automatically process monthly subscription billing. The system is designed for continuous automated operation regardless of the availability or status of key company members.

Although we have gone to great lengths to automate everything to ensure the most timely and reliable service possible, from time-to-time there are disruptions in market data, credit card processing, and other critical services which are beyond our control, but which we always work hard remedy as quickly as possible. The most reliable way to contact us about an operational problem is to send a detailed description of the problem to sjuds@alphadroid.com.
