Additional information about Data collection and processing
Novastar takes reasonable steps to safeguard your Personal Information through physical, electronic, and operational policies and practices. Data can only be read or written through defined service access points, the use of which is password-protected. The physical security of the data is achieved through a combination of network firewalls (there is no direct communication allowed between the database server and the Internet) and servers with operating systems, all housed in a secure facility.
Access to the system is controlled. Employees are granted access to Personal Information on a need-to-know basis in order to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service). We use encryption to protect your Personal Information transmitted online, as well as offline. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
We will also ensure the proper disposal of your Personal Information—regardless of the source.
Information Posted to Our Website
We also employ session time-outs to protect your account. You will be logged out of the Site automatically after a specified period of inactivity. This time-out feature reduces the risk of others being able to access your account if you leave your computer unattended.
If your personal information changes, or if you no longer want updates or to be contacted for new products, you may correct, update, amend, delete/remove or deactivate your contact information by emailing us at email@example.com or by contacting us by telephone or postal mail at the contact information listed below. We will update your file within 30 calendar days.
The User’s Personal Data may be used for legal purposes by Novastar in Court or in the stages leading to possible legal action arising from improper use of this Website or the related Services.
The User declares to be aware that Novastar may be required to reveal personal data upon request of public authorities.
What You Can Do To Protect Your Personal Information
In addition to our own efforts, you can take several precautions to protect the security of your computer and Personal Information. For instance, you should create and use a complex password, using numbers, a combination of small and large capital letters, and special characters. You should avoid using any information that others can easily learn about you, such as your mother’s maiden name, a family member’s name or birthday. We also recommend that you change your password frequently. You should never share your password with anyone, or leave it written down in an unsecured area.
You can also install and regularly update antivirus and firewall software to protect your computer or device from external attacks by malicious users. If you use a computer that can be accessed in a public area (e.g., library, coffee shop, etc.), we recommend that you take special precautions to protect the security of your account and Personal Information. When you are finished visiting our Site, you should log out completely, close the browser window and clear the browser’s cache files.
You should also be aware of fraudulent attempts to gain access to your account information known as “phishing.” Phishing is a tactic used by scammers to lure people to a phony website through the use of a genuine-looking email purporting to be from a legitimate company. Either in the email itself or on this fake website site, scammers will ask for login information to gain access to people’s accounts and withdraw their money. Novastar will never ask you for your login information in the context of any email. In general, you can protect yourself against phishing by never providing login or Personal Information via an email. You should always ensure the Novastar URL that you are provided begins with: https://www.novastar.net.
