Data Ownership Policy
Data is owned by the entity that purchased the training and license. However, entries in your Connections Category shall remain yours should you leave the company that originally purchased the Cink license you were using. The remainder belongs to the purchaser.
In the event you are no longer with the original entity that owns the data, your license (purchased by them) will become inactive. However, the information stored in your Connections Category is still retrievable should you purchase a personal license to Cink. Simply contact Cink to purchase a new license to regain access to your connections.
Cink operates on Microsoft’s Windows Azure Platform.
Windows Azure runs in data centers managed and operated by Microsoft Global Foundation Services (GFS). These geographically dispersed data centers comply with key industry standards, such as ISO/IEC 27001:2005, for security and reliability. They are managed, monitored, and administered by Microsoft operations staff that have years of experience in delivering the world’s largest online services with 24 × 7 continuity.
In addition to data center, network, and personnel security practices, Windows Azure incorporates security practices at the application and platform layers to enhance security for application developers and service administrators.
The Cloud Security Alliance published the Cloud Control Matrix (CCM) to support customers in the evaluation of cloud services. In response to this publication, Microsoft has created a white paper to outline how Windows Azure security controls map to the CCM controls framework, providing customers with in-depth information on Windows Azure security policies and procedures. Please see Windows Azure Cloud Security Alliance STAR submission for more information.
