Maha-Maya and Yoga-Maya {good guy}

For the maintenance of this material world there are three gunas, or modes of material nature-sattva-guna (the mode of goodness), rajo-guna (the mode of passion), and tamo-guna (the mode of ignorance). Lord Visnu, Lord Brahma, and Lord Siva have each taken charge of one of these modes-Lord Visnu of sattva-guna, Lord Brahma of rajo-guna, and Lord Siva of tamo-guna. Yet these three controllers are not under the influence of the gunas. Just as the superintendent of a jail is not a prisoner but the controlling officer, so Lord Siva, Lord Visnu, and Lord Brahma control these three gunas and are not under the control of the gunas.

I thought or was under the impression that sometimes Lord Brahma and Lord Siva come under influence of Maya, I am wrong its Yoga-Maya obviously.! I wonder what gave me this impression {Maha-Maya?}
