4.6. The use of third party software components and technologies.

The software includes some open source software components and data storage technologies to store your application database and object models that we license from third parties. To the extent applicable, we will identify open source components included in software. Some of these licenses may require us to provide the open source software to you on the terms of the open source license instead of the terms of the Agreement. In that case, the terms of the open source license will apply, and you will have the rights granted in such licenses to the open source software itself, such as access to source code, right to make modifications, and right to reverse engineer. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you are using the Software services in the form provided to you, in accordance with your permitted Scope of Use, with no distribution of software to third parties, then none of these open source licenses impose any obligations on you beyond what is stated in the Agreement.

4.7. Activation and reactivation

 Software instance activation is made after each software installation including reinstallation after PharosN engine hardware repair or migration to another hardware or re-initialization after long period inactivity. The activation associates the use of the software instance with a specific organization, its Supervisor and hardware device and is mandatory. During activation, the software instance generates first logins for the engine administrators ABA and sends information about these logins and software instance and the device to the service subscribers in the relevant VOrg at the PharosN portal over secure Internet connection. The successful activation changes status of the PharosN engine subscription and can be monitored by VOrg members in their personal accounts.

This information includes the version, language and product key of the software, the Internet protocol address of the device and information derived from the hardware configuration of the device. By using the software, you consent to the transmission of this information. If properly licensed and activated, you have the right to use the software instance till the end of subscription under other conditions applied. Unless the software is activated within the time permitted for activation, you have no access to the software and right to use it. This is to prevent its unlicensed use and protect VOrg application data. You are not permitted to bypass or circumvent activation. If the device is connected to the Internet, the software may automatically connect to PharosN portal for activation and verification. You cannot activate the software manually without Internet connection. Changes to your PharosN engine hardware components or the software instance may require you to reinstall and reactivate the PharosN software instance.

Software instance activation shall be reaffirmed each time after PharosN engine is down including any hardware failure or upgrade or reinstallation. The software instance logins for ABA are initiated again after each such installation and until this moment any engine installation is not accessible by users. The backups can be installed only to particular PharosN software instance which made such backups and are non transferable to any other PharosN software instance. You agree that the reinstallation requirement is aimed at providing you with additional security and it need to be planned and implemented in controllable way by Supervisor of VOrg as much as possible.

4.8. Use of Information. Provider may use the computer information and update and software diagnostic reports to improve the Software and Services.

4.9. First login after activation.

After the engine software is installed in your location on your device (engine hardware) there is no user login until it is activated and registered in your VOrg against relevant subscription made. In case of successful activation the software can be accessed by two separate ABA logins provided to (1) Master or Supervisor who authorizes the Member subscriptions on behalf of Organization and (2) its Member who made the subscription for PharosN engine instance (could be the same person). The login name and passwords enable first two administrative logins into the engine software instance enabling ABA making further definition of local users, applications, restoration of the application data from previous backups, etc.

You can login into the software instance after its activation as PharosN engine ABA only by using the logins (user name and password) which are independently received by two Portal Members of your organization in their Member Inbox such as (1) Master or Supervisor of your organization and (2) Member who made subscription for the service “engine Software”. If you are the only Member of your Organization at Portal acting as its Master and you made subscription then you receive both logins to your Portal Inbox mail. These logins provide any user who has the login credentials with possibility to login into the newly installed or reinstalled engine software and become its ABA, i.e. Administrator of Business Applications. You should change the initial login after your first login accordingly to requirements of password complexity. In case you are ABA fro particular PharosN engine, you are responsible for secure storage and use of your ABA login until the end of service subscription.

4.10. NO ACCESS TO SYSTEM ROOT.

The logins by ABA group members or any other software users do not allow access to the administrative privileges of underlying Linux operating system called “root”. Such root login is made unknown to anyone including Provider technical staff during the whole duration of PharosN software subscription for security reasons.

5.UPGRADE, DIAGNOSTICS AND VALIDATION.

5.1.        The software instance, which is leased to you, is maintained, serviced and updated from time to time during its periodic communications to PharosN portal by downloading and installing the updates. After installation the software runs system diagnostics and identifies optional errors if occurred and sends it to Portal for Provider technical analysis and fixing in the following updates.

5.2.        The default update check period is 24 hours. In order to minimize the overhead of this system operation for your applications you may set the default time of the system update check during the night hours.

5.3.        Maximum acceptable interval between update checkups is 14 calendar days meaning that Terms of Agreement allows delayed communication sessions between PharosN engine software and PharosN Portal up to 14 days if caused by problems with Internet connection, natural disasters, etc. In case there is no update check-up connection between engine software and Portal for time interval exceeding 14 days the engine installation is subject to reactivation.

5.4.        Natural disasters and other Force Majeure circumstances such as flood, fire, earthquake and other acts, war, military operations that may have arisen after conclusions of the Agreement are subject to separate consideration upon documented presentation of the relevant facts to Provider by Master or Supervisor of VOrg in each case. If the VOrg cannot comply with the Terms of Agreement for more than one month the Provider has right to cancel the LA.

5.5.        Consent for automatic update Services. The software will validate itself during communications to PharosN portal over the Internet, then downloads and install updates. While you as Member of ABA group may monitor results and content of each such communication session in logs such as date and time, list of main operations, in some cases, you may not receive a separate notice when software connects to Portal for update checkups. You may not switch off these features.

5.6.        During a validation check, the software will send information about the software and the hardware device to Provider. This information includes version and activation key of the software, results of system diagnostics and optional errors which has occurred for the period after previous system check up, update time, list of additional software subscriptions running on the engine software and the Internet protocol address of the device. Provider may use the information to monitor compliance to Terms of Services and this Agreement but not for contacting you. By using the PharosN software, you agree to the transmission of this information. For more information about validation and what is sent during a validation check, see Questions and Answers at PharosN portal. By using these features, you consent to the transmission of this information.

5.7.        The software uses security protocols and digital certificates to confirm the identity of Internet users sending X.509 standard encrypted information and digitally signed files and macros, to verify the integrity and origin of the file contents. The software retrieves certificates and updates certificate revocation lists. These security features are implemented continuously by default during PharosN engine software instance running and its communications with clients or other software instances including PharosN portal.

5.8.        Update of the list of trusted certificate is implemented in communication protocols between PharosN portal and PharosN software. You cannot switch off the Update feature.

5.9.        If, after a validation check, the software is found not to be properly licensed, the functionality of the software may be affected. For example, you may need to reactivate the software, or receive reminders to obtain a properly licensed copy of the software, or you may not be able to use or continue to use some of the features of the software, or stop obtaining updates or upgrades from Provider or have the software subscription cancelled with appropriate notifications sent to Supervisor of the Organization at PharosN portal.

5.10.      You may obtain updates or upgrades for the PharosN software from PharosN portal by Provider or its authorized sources in the automatic mode only.

5.11.      License and support is valid for current official version only.  You agree that you may use only the latest supported version of the Software with the Terms of this License Agreement. It means that after release of each Software update or upgrade the support for all previous versions ends and new version replaces previous version of the Software and shall be installed automatically using secure communication protocols between PharosN engine software and PharosN portal within version update interval. After the end of update interval the License Agreement for any previous version becomes void and you shall cease and erase previous version of the Software.

7.Security and protection of applications and data ownership

Your security is realized by several methods and techniques including as follows:

  • Backup, which is made by your local PharosN engine, contains complete database with all your application models and objects compressed and encrypted by the most secure methods currently available such as AES256 in compliance with standard ISO/IEC 18033-3. The high level of encryption enables ABA to keep backup file at any desirable open location (file servers, flash, cloud storage, etc).  
  • Each password of the backup is made automatically as function of multifactor attributes related to your VOrg, service subscription, location, etc which makes it unique. The password is not provided to anyone including local PharosN engine ABA, Provider and Portal Administration and regenerated by each engine upon the restore procedure initiated by ABA thus making practically impossible to access the backup file content in any other VOrg or third party.
  • The backup service runs automatically by the software each day during minimum PharosN engine workload prior to default update check. The resulting encrypted backup file can be stored at any device defined by ABA for its PharosN engine e.g. local storage attached to the engine or storage device in local enterprise network or Internet cloud storage service. Provider does not provide the backup storage support and does not have access to the engine backup file.
  • Communications between the engine PharosN engine and PharosN portal are initiated by PharosN engine and use only secure protocols protecting data content
  • Communications between PharosN engine and PharosN clients running at user devices are allowed only for the registered users and their devices and use secure data transfer protocols protecting data content
  • Communications between PharosN engine and third parties systems are allowed based on definitions of “Trusted partners” which are made by ABA while all other connections are blocked and use secure data transfer protocols
  • User client software accessing PharosN portal supports identification and security in relation to the PharosN engine where it was registered
  • PharosN engine software configuration blocks access to underlying Linux operating system at the system level as no root privileges are available to PharosN engine users including ABAs
  • Each PharosN engine software instance has unique identifier that is registered in secure directory of PharosN portal

You responsibilities:

As results of protection and security measures depend on both provider and users, you are responsible for additional security measures ensuring protection of your PharosN engine and application database such as

  • Selecting appropriate hardware for running PharosN engine accordingly to the technical requirements;
  • Management of engine users including prompt implementation of changes in their roles and access rights;
  • Selection of the safe placement of the PharosN engine backup file and its default timing;
  • Ensuring regular connectivity between you PharosN engine and PharosN portal for update checking, installation of subscriptions, verification; 
  • Ensuring sufficient space for implementing daily backups for at least one week interval (if storage capacity ends the software shall delete the oldest backups and use the free space for making new ones);
  • Setting “Trusted partnership” list of PharosN engines for your partners organizations which are authorized to communicate between your engine and partner engine software;

If implemented at premises the additional requirements include as follows:

  • Implementation of PharosN engine on dedicated hardware;
  • Physical isolation of the PharosN engine hardware in the room which has restricted access by authorised personnel;
  • Ensuring appropriate environmental parameters for the computer server running PharosN engine such as humidity, dust, temperature, etc.

Special security requirements  

If implemented at premises under special security requirements for certain applications e.g. power stations, public safety and security monitoring centers, airports, hospitals, etc, PharosN engine may run without direct link to Internet. Its standard updating and status verification procedure shall be implemented at least once per week under control of local technical personnel manually by using additional intermediate devices and storage. The description for such procedure is provided upon additional request. The implementation requires complementary software tools for updating to/from local customer storage and its verification subject to agreement between Customer and Provider and coverage of relevant costs.
