Applicability of this Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy applies to INCISIV’s VR platforms including the associated desktop applications (collectively, the “Services”) and other INCISIV websites (collectively, the “Websites”) and other interactions (e.g., customer service inquiries, user conferences, etc.) you may have with INCISIV. If you do not agree with the terms, do not access or use the Services, Websites or any other aspect of INCISIV’s business.This Privacy Policy does not apply to any third party applications or software that integrate with the Services through the INCISIV platform (“Third Party Services”), or any other third party products, services or businesses.

Information We Collect And Receive

INCISIV may collect and receive Customer Data and other information and data (“Other Information”) in a variety of ways:

● Customer Data. Customers or individuals granted access to the INCISIV platform by a Customer (“Authorized Users”) routinely submit Customer Data to INCISIV when using the Services.
● Other Information. INCISIV also collects, generates and/or receives Other Information:

1. Profile and Account Information. To create or update an account, you or your Customer (e.g., your employer) supply INCISIV with an email address, phone number, password, domain and/or similar account details. In addition, Customers that purchase a paid version of the Services provide INCISIV (or its payment processors) with billing details such as credit card information, banking information and/or a billing address.

2. Usage Information.

■ Services Metadata. When an Authorized User interacts with the Services, metadata is generated that provides additional context about the way Authorized Users work. For example, INCISIV logs the users, features, content and links you view or interact with, the types of files shared, and what Third Party Services are used (if any).
■ Log data. As with most websites and technology services delivered over the Internet, our servers automatically collect information when you access or use our Websites or Services and record it in log files. This log data may include the Internet Protocol (IP) address, the address of the page visited before using the Website or Services, browser type and settings, the date and time the Services were used, information about browser configuration and plugins, language preferences and cookie data
.■ Device information. INCISIV collects information about devices accessing the Services, including type of device, what operating system is used, device settings, application IDs, unique device identifiers and crash data. Whether we collect some or all of this Other Information often depends on the type of device used and its settings.
■ Bulk Data. INCISIV collects data such as x,y,z data about user movement in VR, where they are looking in VR and the objects they have interacted with.

INCISIV takes security of data very seriously. INCISIV adopts Microsoft Defender for Cloud which is a unified cloud-native platform that helps strengthen your security posture, enables protection against modern threats, and helps reduce risk throughout the cloud application lifecycle across multi-cloud and hybrid environments. INCISIV uses the Microsoft for Defender Cloud initiatives and implement the security recommendations as defined in the Azure Security Benchmark v3.

Microsoft Azure Architecture Overview

The Microsoft Azure platform is used to capture and host all the data from VR training. Different Azure resources are utilized to ensure the smooth process. Authenticated devices) send data to our Azure cloud platform where raw unprocessed data is catalogued in a database and incoming raw data files are analysed by propriety analytics. Results are catalogued in the database and anonymised raw data files are stored in an Azure Blob Storage container.  All end-user data is visualised by a Power BI Dashboard with access restricted to Azure Active Directory (AAD) accounts and row-level security policies.

Data Security –Azure

This architecture provides customers with strong data security, both by default and as customer options. User credentials security, Server level security and data security are managed by different azure services mentioned below:

Azure Active Directory (AD): To assure data security, Directory Data in Azure AD is signed and encrypted while in transit between data centers within a scale unit. The data is encrypted and unencrypted by the Azure AD core store tier, which resides inside secured server hosting areas of the associated Microsoft data centers. Customer-facing web services are secured with the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol.

Secret Storage: Azure AD service back-end utilizes secret stores for storing of sensitive material for service use such as certificates, keys, credentials, and hashes using technology that is proprietary to Microsoft. The specific store used depends on the service, the operation, the scope of the secret (user wide or tenant-wide), and other requirements. Multiple algorithms are used to keep the user credentials secure.

Azure Key Vault: The architecture utilizes Azure Key vault which helps customers easily maintain control of keys that are used by cloud applications and services to encrypt data. Webservices:  The webservices provides the secure connection between HEAT and Azure. All the server level security is managed with webservices.

User Access Management: All the users access management is controlled using Azure Active directory. The access can be provided by assigning different roles and responsibilities as per the user type.

Dynamic Data Masking: All Azure cloud INCISIV databases implement dynamic data masking of sensitive information, such personal information (e.g. User names, passwords etc). This security policy prevents unauthorized access to sensitive data by enabling customers to designate how much of the sensitive data to reveal with minimal impact on the application layer. It's a policy-based security feature that hides the sensitive data in the result set of a query over designated database fields, while the data in the database is not changed.  All user passwords are protected by server-side Salted secured hash algorithms (HMACSHA512).

Azure Cloud Defender Security: While Microsoft Azure does provide security measures against data loss or damage, and cyberattack, we have also put a plan in place to ensure all client/user data is protected, and we avail of Microsoft Azure Security Centre as a service which regularly monitors our deployed infrastructure for weaknesses or provide alerts related to data integrity or security and guides the end-user to Data Security compliance.  All Microsoft Azure datacentres are designed, built, and operated in a way that satisfies top industry standards, such as ISO27001, HIPAA, FedRAMP, SOC 1, and SOC 2, and UK GCloud. INCISIV customers will benefit of this service standard including a Disaster Recovery protocol to ensure 99.9% data availability through synchronisation of data and servers toother geolocated datacentres and automatic re-routing to mitigate any downtime by the principal Datacentre. Furthermore, Azure portal platform passwords are regularly changed with complex passwords and multi-factor authentication (MFA) is required to login.  Azure resource admin passwords/connection strings/SAS keys are all administered by an INCISIV super admin and changed regularly.  All stored data is encrypted at rest and data movements utilise secure data transfer protocols.

Data recovery and business continuity plan

Local Device: We have implemented an API that is wrapped around a local syncing API.  If for whatever reason there is a loss of internet connectivity during runtime, all anonymised data files a re restored locally SQLIte database, and the data files are pushed to the cloud whenever connectivity is restored. Regardless, all data files are stored locally on the device in the event of catastrophic issues, which can be transferred to INCISIV and manually added to our cloud infrastructure.

Azure cloud: Azure databases is backed up regularly (24-hour cycle) and geo-replicated, and anonymised raw data files (with 30-day retention period) are equally backed up in the cloud on Azure.  Data storage and Database performance is regularly monitored through a number of Cloud services and resources can be scaled-up or out on-demand to handle load on our severs and data storage containers.
