This right is also known as the ‘right to be forgotten’, however, please note as per our company’s policy, we automatically erase any of this information after the minimum required regulation time, therefore there is no need to request it individually.
As part of the measures we take to safeguard our clients’ private information and accounts, the Company will implement and update advanced data protection procedures.
Richmondinvesting.com invests substantial resources in ensuring its clients information is protected, as we view security in all senses as something of the utmost importance. To ensure authorized access only, richmondinvesting.com employs a two tier top class firewall protection: one at the server level and one at the application level. For user authentication and data transfer, richmondinvesting.com uses an advanced SSL certification.
The application servers, i.e. the servers that handle our clients’ online activity, are separate from the transaction information, which is stored on a different data server.
For data recovery, integrity and replication, richmondinvesting.com uses two different server farms, which are physically located apart from each other. Data must be synchronized in both locations, and thus cannot be tampered with. All information stored on the servers is encrypted.
The use of our website with a client’s username and password is the sole responsibility of that client and the Company shall not be held responsible for any such use, or for validation that it is the client who is in actuality operating his/her Account.
