4.2 Support Service
Support Scope For the duration of this Agreement, Hindsight offers a support service, with an unlimited number of tickets for bugs and functional questions: how to use and configure the Software for your specific needs.
This support service does not include support to customize the Software, develop new modules, or perform specific actions on your database on your behalf. (e.g. recording data, or configuring the system for you). Those services can be offered in extra through our professional services group and quoted independently of the Software Agreement.
Support Service Support issues should be submitted online on https://twenty20hindsight.com/help. In case of emergency, you can call our support teams directly for a real time answer.
Our support teams are split across 2 continents in India (Ahmedabad) and United States (Arizona and Pennsylvania). Support is offered during normal business hours 8am - 5pm Arizona time Monday - Friday excluding legal holidays in the respective countries.
No guarantees are provided on the time to qualify or close a support ticket, it's based on our best efforts. But 95% of the tickets are qualified within 2 open days, and 90% of the critical bugs (when a user can not work on the system anymore) are processed within 2 hours.
Database Security Customer data is stored in a dedicated database - no sharing of data between clients. Data access control rules implement complete isolation between customer databases running on the same cluster, no access is possible from one database to another.
Password Security Customer passwords are protected with industry-standard PBKDF2+SHA512 encryption (salted + stretched for thousands of rounds). Hindsight staff does not have access to your password, and cannot retrieve it for you, the only option if you lose it is to reset it Login credentials are always transmitted securely over HTTPS.
System Security All web connections to client instances are protected with state-of-the-art 256-bit SSL encryption. All our SSL certificates use robust 2048-bit modulus with full SHA-2 certificates chains. Our servers are kept under a strict security watch, and always patched against the latest SSL vulnerabilities, enjoying Grade A SSL ratings at all times. All Hindsight online servers are running hardened Linux distributions with up-to-date security patches. Installations are ad-hoc and minimal to limit the number of services that could contain vulnerabilities (no PHP/MySQL stack for example). Only a few trusted Hindsight engineers have clearance to remotely manage the servers - and access is only possible using SSH key pairs (password authentication disallowed) Firewalls and intrusion counter-measures help prevent unauthorized access. Automatic Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation is implemented in US data centers.
Staff Access Hindsight helpdesk staff may sign into your account to access settings related to your support issue. For this they use their own special staff credentials, not your password (which they have no way to know). This special staff access improves efficiency and security: they can immediately reproduce the problem you are seeing, you never need to share your password, and we can audit and control staff actions separately! Our Helpdesk staff strives to respect your privacy as much as possible, and only access files and settings needed to diagnose and resolve your issue Physical Security
