We will execute a mutual non-disclosure agreement with you on request, or if you wish to discuss Chemintro Provable Correctness.
A Consultant company in Chemintro is one which has requested the Consultant role for its Admin user.
Any new company registered while logged in with the Consultant role will be automatically linked as a Client company.
Consultant users can see a list of their Clients when logged into their own company.
A Consultant cannot see any Client data unless they possess a separate login to the Client company which was issued by that company and is logged-in to that company. See 'Silo' below.
ONE SILO PER CLIENT
Each company registered in Chemintro is a secure information silo.
A consultant can create a new 'silo' at any time by registering a new company.
Within each corporate silo can be multiple named 'Divisions' each of which carries a different AICIS Portfolio ID.
Chemicals belong to a Division but products belong to the company itself. This allows chemicals from multiple portfolios to be ingredients in the same products.
Multiple consultants occasionally work for the same company. Chemintro still handles this in separate, secure silos. Contact us to discuss options.
UNIQUE USERNAME PER CLIENT
For a Consultant needing to log into multiple Client companies, at least one username per company is required.
The ideal username incorporates the company abbreviation or acronym. For example, mike@abc might be Mike's username for logging into ABC Australia Pty Ltd.
This puts 'Mike(ABC)' at the top of every Chemintro page while working on introductions for ABC Australia Pty Ltd. This special feature helps with interruptions from multiple clients during a typical working day. Top
Best security practice restricts permissions according to roles held. There are no individual permissions in Chemintro.
The most permissive role is Admin. If you register a company in Chemintro, you automatically acquire the Admin role.
Only the Admin user can see all other users for a company. Only the Admin user can add/disable logins and add/remove roles.
Users in the Admin role are effectively responsible for information security. Consultants should therefore retain the Admin role exclusively for themselves and unless necessary, avoid giving Admin logins to anyone else.
If a new Client comes on board with an existing Chemintro account, the first requirement for keeping trade secrets is to agree with the Client exactly who is responsible for security. That person should acquire the Admin role and prune non-essential users and roles.
If a Client wishes to see/edit their own chemical or product information, the Author role is required.
If certain AICIS declarations need to be delegated to someone without revealing any of the data, a login with the Agent role might be issued.
If Chemintro charges or quotations/payments for bulk package deals, the Manager role can be assigned to a Client user. This role also permits editing corporate information.
The Admin role should not be assigned to Client users - unless the Consultant is willing to share responsibility for security with other Admin users. Top
