PaySense is committed to the safety and security of its systems and services and to the integrity of its data. We recognize the valuable role of the security research community and we welcome reports from researchers, both of potential vulnerabilities in our systems and of confidential data from or relating to our services that may be accessible by unauthorized persons.

PaySense will not initiate legal action against anyone who makes a report in compliance with this policy.

Disclosure Policy

  • Promptly acknowledging receipt of your vulnerability report and work with the researcher to understand and attempt to resolve the issue quickly;
  • Validating, responding and fixing such vulnerability in accordance with our commitment to security and privacy. We will notify you when the issue is fixed;
  • Unless prescribed by law otherwise, not pursuing or take legal action against you or the person who reported such security vulnerabilities;
  • Not suspending or terminate access to our service(s) if you are a merchant. If you are an agent, not suspending or terminating merchants’ access to our services to which the agent represents.

Testing

A researcher can test only against an end user/merchant account if they are an account owner or an agent authorised by the account owner to conduct such testing. As a researcher, in no event are you permitted to access, download or modify data residing in any other account or that does not belong to you or attempt to do any such activities. In the interest of the safety of our merchants, users, employees, the internet at large and you as a researcher, the following test types are expressly excluded from scope and testing: any findings from physical testing (office access, tailgating, open doors) or DOS or DDOS vulnerabilities. A responsible disclosure also does not include identifying any spelling mistakes, or any UI and UX bug.

The rules

We require that all researchers must:

  • Make every effort to avoid privacy violations, degradation of user or merchant experience, disruption to production systems, and destruction of data during security testing;
  • Not attempt to gain access to any other persons account, data or personal information;
  • Use the identified email address to report any vulnerability information to us;
  • Use the identified email address to report any vulnerability information to us;
  • Keep information about any vulnerabilities you’ve discovered confidential between yourself and PaySense. PaySense will take a reasonable time to remedy such vulnerability (approximately 3 months as a minimum but this is dependent on the nature of the security vulnerability and regulatory compliance by PaySense). The researcher shall not publicly disclose the bug or vulnerability on any online or physical platform before it is fixed and prior written approval to publicly disclose from PaySense;
  • Not perform any attack that could harm the reliability, integrity and capacity of our services. DDoS/spam attached not allowed;
  • Not use scanners or automated tools to find vulnerabilities (noisy and we may automatically suspend your account and ban your IP address);
  • As a researcher, you represent and warrant that you have the right, title and interest to disclose any vulnerability found and to submit any information, including documents, codes, among others, in connection therewith. Once you inform a vulnerability, you grant PaySense, its subsidiaries and affiliates an irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, transferrable, sub-licensable right to use in any way PaySense deems appropriate for any purpose, such as: reproduction, modification, distribution, adaptation among other uses, the information related with the vulnerabilities. Further, you hereby waive all other claims of any nature, including express contract, implied-in-fact contract, or quasi-contract, arising out of any disclosure accepted by PaySense. Remember that you must never attempt non-technical attacks such as social engineering, phishing, or physical attacks against our employees, users, or infrastructure.
