The OA LodgeMaster servers are hosted in a world class data center that is staffed and monitored 24 hours per day every day. Access to the servers are controlled through redundant firewalls that prevent hackers from accessing your data. The facility is physically protected with intrusion detection measures and it connects to the Internet through 3 different, redundant connections. Each night, your database is backed up and stored on a separate server in the event of a problem.
Access to your lodge's database is strictly controlled. In order for a user to download your lodge's database from the OA LodgeMaster servers, they must first be given a username and a password by your lodge's OA LodgeMaster Administrator. To become an OA LodgeMaster Administrator, a council employee must confirm and approve the person's identity and he or she must then register with us. Once approved, this person is able to setup users and permissions for your lodge's database. When a new user accesses OA LodgeMaster, they must use the username and password given to them by the OA LodgeMaster Administrator. If, at any time, the need arises, any user or capability can be revoked (including the capabilities of OA LodgeMaster Administrator).
