Qing Cloud promises Privacy
The best assurance IISRI® could find on privacy is that QingCloud states that they “promise” to keep tenant’s data confidential and not to disclose tenant’s data to third parties. It is possible that in China a promise has a different meaning and provides more assurance than in Western countries, but we would not bet our privacy on it. There are also other statements made by QingCloud that indicate that they may not respect tenants' rights. It seems that QingCloud has other priorities than ensuring privacy and intellectual property rights of tenants' information.
