At Our Wave, privacy and data security are important to us, and both are paramount to the safety and security of our users and visitors. So is transparency. This promise aims to serve as a clear, transparent and easily digestible summary of Our Wave’s long-standing policies with respect to data privacy, security, and protection.
Below are a few examples of our active security policies and precautions at Our Wave. These measures, along with many others, serve to create a secure, reliable, and safe system for our users and community.
Strong Login Details
We generate passwords using a strong password generator and avoid predictable usernames and credentials. This approach makes it much harder for “brute force” attacks to successfully gain access to our platform. We don’t just apply this principle to website logins; the same level of security is applied to databases and account logins as well.
Regular Software Upgrades
We strive to ensure that the software that powers our platform is kept up to date, minimizing the risk of security vulnerabilities and reducing the chance of exploitation. Updates are often made in response to new security fixes and overall improvements.
Our system is designed to capture and encrypt all databases and preferences on a daily basis and store backups for at least one week. This provides extra insurance in the unlikely event of serious infrastructure failure.
Secure Hosting Over TLS
All of our platform websites, APIs, and databases are hosted on secure servers designed to run an TSL/SSL certificate. This essentially means that information is encrypted when transferred over the wire. This encryption makes it much more difficult for unscrupulous hackers to see those details.
We also run active monitoring tools to protect our users from things like malware, suspicious code and unexpected file changes, as well as logging platform activity to flag any unusual behavior.
At Our Wave, we are dedicated to earning and keeping your trust as you use our platform and participate in our community. Our goal is to make it easy for you to understand your privacy c hoices and we are fully committed to providing the data privacy and security that you expect. As we strive to maintain the highest standards of security and transparency, we welcome your feedback, comments, and questions at [email protected].
