Additional Security terms. (i) ANACODE takes end user

all necessary assistance for the operation of Your
Application in compliance with these TOU and any applicable
laws. (ii) Securing User Consent. You are solely responsible
for securing clear, express consent from the user, granting You
permission to access such user's ANACODE account using
authentication API, including if applicable, retrieving
user-specific information, or writing information to such
user's account. You will strictly comply with the scope of

name of the contact You gave to ANACODE when You applied for
Your API credential set for review if it's not You) must be

documents, that You provide to ANACODE, must be checked with
Internet industry standard up-to-date antivirus and anti-worm
software, and determined to be virus-free and worm-free. Any
data provided to ANACODE must not contain harmful scripts
or code. (v) Industry Standards. Your networks, operating
system and software of its web server(s), routers, databases,
and computer systems must be properly configured to Internet
industry best practice standards, as required to securely
operate Your Application. If You do not completely control any
aspect of the System, You will use all control or influence
that You have over such Systems and/or selection of Systems,
and You will not architect or select Systems in a manner
to avoid the foregoing obligation. An example of
an unacceptable server is one that operates as open proxy.
An example of architecting in an unacceptable manner would be
if You select a server operated by a vendor with substandard
security practices, so that You could contend that You do not
control such server, in order to avoid having to select
an acceptable server. (vi) Reporting. You must promptly report
any security deficiencies in or intrusions to Your Systems that
You discover to ANACODE in writing via our contact page.
You will work with ANACODE to immediately correct any security
deficiency, and will disconnect immediately any intrusions
or intruder. In the event of any such security deficiency
or intrusion, You will make no public statements (i.e. press,
blogs, bulletin boards, etc.) without prior written and
express permission from ANACODE in each instance.
(vii) Control Access to Systems. To the extent You have
control or influence over the Systems, You will log (in a time
and date-stamped fashion) all instances of access to
the Systems. You will encrypt the password and username files
for the Systems that store or process any ANACODE user data
that You are permitted by ANACODE to access. Passwords must
be unique, unintuitive, and changed often. You will minimize
access to and use of the passwords. Wherever possible,
commands which require additional privileges should
be securely logged (with time and date) to enable a complete
audit trail of activities. When an individual terminates
his or her employment with You, his or her passwords and
access password facilities must be terminated immediately.
(viii) Security Reviews. ANACODE will have the right, at its
own expense, to review, or to have an independent third party
to inspect and review Your compliance with these security
provisions. You will (at Your own expense) correct any
security flaws detected by such a review as soon as possible.
You will then promptly certify to ANACODE in writing that
the security flaw has been corrected, along with a description
of the corrective action(s) taken. Any such review will be
conducted during regular business hours in such a manner as not
to interfere with normal business activities. If a review
reveals a material breach of any of these security provisions,
You will reimburse ANACODE for the reasonable costs of the review.
