SAFEGUARDING CUSTOMER INFORMATION
Chameleon takes the following precautions to safeguard customer information.
· Anonymity: Chameleon does not require a client name to be entered into our products to generate an analysis. We also recommend in our training sessions that a “code name” be used when submitting data for analysis. This ensures that no company can be associated with the financial data entered in our products.
Chameleon stores and aggregates your report data, so we can build and continually improve our products. Chameleon will not publish or sell personally identifiable data (information that identifies a particular client/customer or other individual) without your express permission, and we agree to maintain the confidentiality of your information. Chameleon reserves the right to use any data and information provided by users for internal quality control and product development as necessary for supporting our products. In addition, Chameleon reserves the right to freely use, sell, and distribute all data provided by users from which Chameleon has removed personally identifiable information.

· Security: Chameleon employs industry-recognized security safeguards to help protect the personally identifiable information that has been provided to us from loss, misuse, or unauthorized alteration. Secure server software (SSL) encrypts all information entered through our web interface so that it cannot be read as the information travels over the Internet. Therefore, all of the information that is entered into the Chameleon system is securely transmitted through industry standard SSL protocols as well as full data encryption at rest.
Chameleon further protects personally identifiable information stored on our servers by using industry standard computer security products and procedures such as firewalls, intrusion detection systems, host and firewall logging, and real-time monitoring.
· Control of customer data: If you use Chameleon, you have full control of all data that is submitted for analysis. If you would like to delete data at any time for security or any other reasons, you may do so through your account.
Chameleon commits to maintaining the above measures and to working with our customers to monitor and modify our programs as needed to address any security concerns.
USE OF YOUR INFORMATION
