Responsible Disclosure

At Clocktimizer, we the security of our systems is our number one priority. However, regardless of the time and effort we put into securing our systems, we acknowledge that there can be vulnerabilities present. The responsible disclosure of security vulnerabilities helps us ensure the security and privacy of our customers and our systems. This policy is designed to create a clear communication path around exploitable vulnerabilities.

Guidelines

We kindly request that all researchers:

  • Make every effort to avoid privacy violations, degradation of user experience, disruption to production systems, and destruction of data during security testing;
  • Perform research only within the scope set out below;
  • Use the identified communication channels to report vulnerability information to us;
  • Do not take in any way advantage of the vulnerability or problem you have discovered;
  • Do not download, copy, transfer or publish any data and/or information that is exposed or accessible;
  • Do not use the vulnerability or the security problem to gain access to the systems and services of Clocktimizer;
  • Keep information about any vulnerabilities you have discovered confidential between yourself and Clocktimizer until (i) we have had 90 days to resolve the issue, or until (ii) we have notified you we have resolved the issue, whichever comes first.

If you follow these guidelines when reporting an issue to us, we commit to:

  • Not pursue or support any legal action related to your research;
  • Work with you to understand and resolve the issue quickly (including an initial confirmation of your report within 5 business days of submission), if the issue poses an actually exploitable vulnerability;
  • Recognize, with your consent, your contribution on our Security Researcher List, if you are the first to report the issue and we make a code or configuration change based on the issue.
