Sometimes, in order to help you, CSS support team may ask for access to your database. This is access is intended for us to check what is happenning inside your site and give you solutions based on what we are seeing.
When you give us permission to make changes, please take into account that these changes may have unexpected results. Therefore, it is extremely important to backup-up your database before CSS Support starts working on it. Backup should include the database and the file systems.
If we find a problem in your database, which we can only reproduce on your database, we may ask your permssion to make a copy and use for development and debug purposes. The extent of this work is only to troubleshoot the problem that you have reported. Once we are done with this we will no longer use your database for other work.
Under no circumstances will we expose any of your data or share it with anyone else. We will treat your database as we treat our own. Whenever possible we prefer to work on backup sites and not on your production site. It is impossible for us to create test data for every customization done on your site, so it is necessary to get the access of database for checking the customization done in your site.
