Notice of Privacy Policy

ITS Alliance Partners, LLC (MLCP) / My LifeCard Plan (MLCP) recognizes all end-user client rights to privacy.  We are committed to the highest standards of data encryption technology by utilizing Turbo SSL (TM) – Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software – to keep client database records protected and secure.  The exclusion of access to personal client records from unauthorized persons is as important to us as it is to you.  Therefore, we additionally use SPxSHARC™ next-level-technology software (developed by Security First) to encrypt all client vault documents.  The following defines how that is accomplished:

  • The primary method of scattering encrypted bits is through the SPxSHARC™ randomization application.  This makes the data impervious to brute force attacks.  In competitive encryption solutions, data is only protected by one deterministic (therefore more prone to hacking) key.  SPxSHARC™ increases this protection exponentially by running encrypted data through a second non-deterministic, truly random algorithm that then separates those randomized pieces where they are stored.  This process ensures that no unauthorized user can hack the keys to reveal the data "for the life of the universe" according to independent testers.

  • The SPx technology is a FIPS 140-2 certified cryptographic module, which means that the SPxSHARC™ software itself is certified secure by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).  This also means that it plays a crucial part in making any IT environment compliant with requirements like SOX, PCI/DSS, HIPAA, HITECH, FISMA and others.  Security First Corp's FIPS 140-2 certification can be viewed on the NIST website:

    http://csrc.nist.gov/groups/STM/cmvp/documents/140-1/1401val2010.htm#1411

  • Because SPxSHARC™ works directly with the Access Control List (i.e. Active Directory or LDAP) of its host server, any unauthorized attempts would be logged via the corresponding local event logging mechanism.  In Windows, for example, that would be the Windows Event Viewer.

IN ADDITION, we have installed advanced cyber security/penetration testing procedures, safety requirements, and business-continuation agreements to help maintain the integrity and permanency of client data:

  • Through a collaborative agreement managed and funded by Intervention Point, LLC, who is partnered with ITS to provide our MLCP platform with a national-based and professionally managed Client Management Services (CMS) office and advisor training facility, MLCP utilizes JURINNOV cybersecurity penetration, vulnerability, and data-breach response testing services on a bi-monthly basis. JURINNOV services include proactive, compliant, vigilant and responsive approaches to protecting and securing data by helping to balance the risks associated with the transmission, storage, processing and external access to cloud-based information. JURINNOV (post-test) tracking reports are always created for recommended solutions, when necessary, which are then monitored in succeeding tests. The security metrics incorporated into the MLCP platform are ranked in the top 3% of all JURINNOV'S corporate clients.

  • ITS/MLCP is in compliance with the safety requirements set by the Payment Card Industry's (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS) that are designed to ensure that the processing, storing, and transmitting of credit card information is done in a safe and secure environment. For your review, we also provide public disclosure to our responses on an industry-standard Vendor Cybersecurity Questionnaire.

  • ITS and Intervention Point, LLC maintain a business continuation and data storage agreement facilitated and contracted through the services of Iron Mountain, an S&P 500 company, which also assists more than 156,000 organizations in 36 countries on five continents with storing, protecting, and managing corporate information.  Iron Mountain is publicly traded under the New York Stock Exchange (symbol IRM), is a member of the FORTUNE 1000, and has over a 1,000 facilities worldwide.

FURTHERMORE, in exercising the proper methods of gathering, maintaining, and using client information, we adhere to the following practices:

  • We collect, record and transfer information only as is necessary to enable our Internet service platform to provide end-user clients with the personal experience they need to help reach their respective estate planning goals.

  • Services requiring data-exchanges between affiliated parties may be necessary to analyze, edit, and submit personal data by personal advisors and legal counsel – or other appropriate sources – for the proper creation, funding, and implementation of prescribed estate plans.  However, client files will not be transferred or made available to any other organization not authorized or otherwise connected by a service and/or marketing relationship to our processing network.

  • Any networking party associated with our Internet Platform Protocol sending or receiving personal client data must agree to the terms of our Privacy Policy Notice(s) prohibiting electronic files to be used for any other reason other than to coordinate and establish end-user client estate plans.  Notwithstanding, we do not monitor related party activities beyond our data-exchange protocol requirements.

  • Through pre-arranged contractual agreements, clients and their family members (of the client's choice) may have access to personal information, through Client Consoles, electronically stored on our database, which also may be sent to us from other related sources.  In any event, all personal information will be used only to accomplish the desired end result(s) for which purchases of our services have been made.

  • As with any industry (especially those utilizing sophisticated data-exchange systems), our company and service platform may be subject to internal due diligence investigations by authorized governmental agencies.  To facilitate any such investigative requests, we have created an Attorney General Login (AGL) page.  The AGL page allows Attorney General Offices, in any state, Internet access (after provided with a secure database password) to view and analyze all pertinent client data-exchange occurrences and protocol activity between related service parties.

From a CEO of a practice
management company
for Urgent Care Centers –
 
"I believe that your online (MLCP) service could be of significant value to a patient in a real-life emergency situation.  Time seems to fly in an emergency room where the staff can often spend valuable time trying to locate the patient's family and/or to verify applicable documentation such as a Medical Health Care Power.  During that time, the patient's condition may deteriorate significantly, which can turn a sub-acute situation into an acute emergency.  My LifeCard Plan is providing a valuable service in the best interests of these patients by offering physicians secured-access availability of online Health Care Directives at the touch of a computer key."
