Electronic financial services delivered via electronic means including, but not limited to, the Internet or other electronic delivery vehicles.
Specific examples of e-commerce activities include:
Encryption is the conversion of data into a form called ciphertext, which cannot be easily understood by unauthorized people.
Authentication is the process of determining whether someone or something is, in fact, who or what it is declared to be. Depending on the transactions, a more stringent authentication process may be required.
A firewall refers to any hardware and/or software designed to examine network traffic using policy statements (ruleset) to block unauthorized access while permitting authorized communications to or from a network or electronic equipment.
Lux Watch Winders recognizes the importance of electronic commerce (e-commerce) activities to its present-day operations. We are committed to using e-commerce activities in a cost-effective manner that promotes accuracy, safety, security, and efficiency. These activities bring automation and efficiency to traditional manual tasks and allow quicker access to information, resulting in improved customer service.
This e-commerce policy is to be used as both a guideline and an overview of the management of Lux Watch Winders electronic services.
Lux Watch Winders is committed to enhancing customer service using various forms of e-commerce activities.
Electronic commerce activities include Lux Watch Winders website, email, telephone access system, ACH transactions, online bill payment, and banking services. They also include business-to-business transactions where interaction is conducted electronically between Lux Watch Winders and its business partners using the Internet as the communications network.
Lux Watch Winders' practice is to always safeguard customer data, including the processing of e-commerce transactions. Information must be protected at both the sending and receiving ends of each transaction. To accomplish this, several levels of protection are applied to e-commerce activities.
Encrypting transactions provides security by ensuring that no portion of a transaction is readable except by the parties at each end of the transmission. This ensures that data can be transmitted securely without concern that another party could intercept all or part of the transaction. Encryption also makes certain that the transaction is not tampered with as it routes from point to point, and data is received exactly as it was sent. Lux Watch Winders' will use a minimum of 128-bit encryption. This also applies to vendors that host Lux Watch Winders'customer data.
After establishing a secure connection, the initiating party must prove their identity before conducting the transaction. This is typically handled with user IDs, account numbers, and passwords or PIN combinations. Additionally, encryption certificates are also employed to validate the authenticity of both servers and users. System administrators control system access by assigning users different levels of access for applications and data. These access levels are determined by the President.
For online banking, MFA offers more than one form of authentication to verify the legitimacy of a transaction. The layered defense makes gaining access more difficult for an unauthorized person.
Lux Watch Winders' will deploy and utilize firewalls as necessary to protect internal systems from threats originating from the Internet and those that might be present when connecting to vendors' networks. Firewall operating systems and configurations will be reviewed periodically to ensure maximum protection. Firewalls and other access devices will be used, as needed, to limit access to sites or services deemed inappropriate or non-corporate in nature. Vendor-hosted solution firewalls will be reviewed prior to implementation.
Intra-network traffic is subject to distinct operating rules and restrictions. With firewall technology, outside parties are directed only to approved internal resources. An example of this is web page services that allow certain types of traffic from the Internet (web page browsing) but have other types of traffic blocked (i.e., administrative tasks). This strategy dramatically reduces the risk of any party gaining unauthorized access to a protected server. The internal network is also protected from virus attacks using network-level anti-virus software that is updated regularly. These regular updates are loaded automatically to each PC as they are available. This provides the most up-to-date virus protection and security available. E-mail is also scanned prior to delivery, reducing the potential of a virus entering the network in this manner.
All digital assets are stored at secure third-party locations.
Staff receives training and reviews all procedures at least annually or as major system additions or changes are implemented.
Staff passwords on the host data processing system expire after 45 or 90 days, forcing users to modify their passwords. This control, along with a strict Lux Watch Winders' policy prohibiting users from sharing or disclosing their passwords, is intended to prohibit unauthorized access to systems and data.
Lux Watch Winders' recognizes that e-commerce security issues change daily. New security, safety, and accuracy threats appear daily, and system vendors publish updates and patches regularly to eliminate the threat. To assist in the ongoing maintenance of key components of system security, the company will engage, at a regularly scheduled interval, consulting, and auditing oversight with a nationally recognized leader in the area of e-commerce security. This vendor may also provide technical assistance as new e-commerce-related features are added - to the system to ensure existing systems' continued safety and security.
Lux Watch Winders' employs the use of several types of data communication lines, including direct point-to-point circuits and other private and public network connections. Data transmissions are secured, encrypted, and/or password protected, as needed.
In the event of suspected or detected unauthorized access to customer information systems,Lux Watch Winders' will promptly respond and take appropriate actions. The response program includes the following steps:
Lux Watch Winders' acknowledges the critical importance of maintaining the confidentiality and privacy of customer information. All employees and third-party service providers are required to adhere to strict confidentiality requirements and are bound by non-disclosure agreements.
