Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a limit to the number of devices accessing the cloud at one time?
No. Multiple users can access the drive at once. However, your cloud is only available to those who you have shared the access information with.
What are the mySkiva warranty terms?
You can review the mySkiva warranty terms here.
What if I need multiple routers, will you have trouble supplying my need?
No. We have partnered with a strong manufacturer and should be able to deliver bulk orders on time.
Why is privacy such an important issue for cloud services?
The information stored in a third-party server provider’s cloud is not as private as you may think. The following information reveals only a few of the hidden dangers in using a third party Cloud network rather than your own private Cloud made possible through mySkiva.
1. Multiple copies of the information submitted into an online Cloud are created and stored as backups in several locations that may be outside of the Cloud network you signed up for.
2. Privacy policies you sign to gain access to an online Cloud service make your “private” Cloud space not so private –- many policies allow the server provider to use your stored information. You technically don’t own the rights to information you’ve stored into the Could after you’ve submitted it.
3. When you push “delete,” you may think the files have disappeared. However, if you use an online Cloud, you’re files are still floating around and might be accessible to others even after you think you’ve deleted them.
4. Your media is on a provider’s server with an online Cloud but where are the servers exactly? Since many services have multiple networks interconnected in other states and countries, it’s impossible to know exactly where your files are being stored.
