Additional information


How we protect your data

We take measures, including data encryption, to protect the transmission of all sensitive end-user information. We make reasonable efforts to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems. Nevertheless, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party ‘hackers’ from illegally obtaining this information. We take all reasonable measures to prevent such breaches of security, but given the resourcefulness of cyber-criminals we are unable to guarantee that our security is 100% breach-proof. You assume the risk of such breaches to the extent that they occur despite our reasonable security measures.


What data breach procedures we have in place

If a data breach is detected a mail-notification and lockdown of all affected users are initiated within 12-hours of the detected breach. Website users (thereby administrators and editors of the site) will be notified about the breach, and forced to change password on their next login and to check their profile-data to see if any changes has been made to their respective work of information on the site.
