- 360 Cloud Analysis Plan. 360 Cloud Analysis Plan provides the following functions:
- Networked Detection of File Security. When using the virus scanning and killing function of this Software, 360 Cloud Analysis Plan will upload certain executable program files (excludes users’ files, diagrams, photos, videos and other privacy-related non-program files and information (such as names, phone numbers, residential addresses, E-mail addresses and account information) to 360 Cloud Security Center, and compare the file names, file paths and file fingerprints with an online Trojan virus blacklist database and a whitelist database for the files already proven as secure stored by 360 Cloud Security Center. 360 will post back suspicious executable programs (i.e. programs which are executable and files which can be called by other programs) to 360 Cloud Security Center for analysis as samples after obtaining your consent.
- Networked Detection of Webpage Security. When using the webpage protection feature of 360 Security Shield or use 360 Secure Browser to visit websites or click on links on webpages, 360 will send the URL websites to 360 Cloud Security Center for networked security detection. 360 Cloud Analysis Plan will compares the viruses with an online Trojan virus blacklist database stored by 360 Cloud Security Center. By using this function, if you open a Trojan-containing website or a website with a link to a Trojan-containing website, 360 Shield will promptly intercept the Trojan viruses in the webpages or a warning window will pop up to prevent Trojan viruses from entering your computer.
- Reporting of Suspicious File Samples. A “Suspicious File Sample” refers to an executable file sample neither in the Trojan virus database, nor in the whitelist database, and posing certain threats. Most of the suspicious files sample are unknown Trojans and viruses, and will cause huge security threats to users’ computers.
360 will obtain your consent before we post back the suspicious files sample. All the suspicious file samples posted back are executable files, which will not involve your personal information.
- Networked Query about Software Information. 360 Cloud Security Center has set up a comprehensive software information database, covering software versions, software feature introductions, software categories, roles of files in software, and users’ rating of and comments on software.
When using the “Firewall” or “Startup Booster” or any other functions that requiring the display of program and file information in this Software, the relevant function will, through the file names and the file fingerprints, be networked with 360 Cloud Security Center to seek queries about the security attributes of processes and software in your computer and the descriptions of program features, and display the information results in the relevant software list. In the networked query with the software database, the data to be posted back only include file names, file paths and file fingerprints of the software. The data to be posted back do not include the information which can trace and position users (such as users’ IDs and computer names) and do not include users’ files, diagrams, photos, videos and other privacy-related non-program files and information (such as names, phone numbers, residential addresses, E-mail addresses, account No. and passwords).
You can cancel your participation in 360 Cloud Analysis Plan at any time, so as to no longer automatically report suspicious programs to 360 Cloud Security Center. Meanwhile, the details of all the files reported by your computer can be viewed through “Reporting Files” on the 360 virus scanning interface, so as to specifically learn about which files have been uploaded, whether the files are secure, the uploading time and the file popularity indicators.
- 360 Virtual Vault. If you using Bitcoin, Ethereum or any other block chain-based currency (“Virtual Currency”), an encrypted backup of certain information associated with the Virtual Currency or the Virtual Currency wallet will be stored by 360 Virtual Vault. 360 Virtual Vault will create private key pair to the data so that you may use the key pair through phone or mail verification to decrypt your Virtual Currency wallet.
This software provides the service of wallet backup encryption for free, and therefore, we take no responsibility or liability to you for any loss incurred from any use of 360 Virtual Vault, including but not limited to any losses, damages or claims arising from: (a) user error such as forgotten passwords, incorrectly constructed transactions, or mistyped Virtual Currency addresses; (b) failure of the service under the Software or data loss, crack or damage; (c) corrupted encrypted backup data or files; (d) unauthorized access to applications; (e) any unauthorized third party activities, including without limitation the use of viruses, phishing, hack, brute forcing or other means of attack against the 360 Virtual Vault. If the encrypted data are damaged, your Virtual Currency wallet data cannot be decrypted or restored with 360 Virtual Vault.
