7. Security of data transfers
7.1. Please note that data that is transported over an open network, such as the Internet or e-mail, may be accessible to anybody. The Company cannot guarantee the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted via such open networks. When disclosing any personal information via an open network, you should remain mindful of the fact that it is potentially accessible to others, and consequently, can be collected and used by others without your consent. In particular, while individual data packets are often encrypted, the names of the sender and recipient are not. A third party may therefore be able to trace an existing account or relationship or one that is subsequently created. Even if both the sender and recipient are located in the same country, data may also be transmitted via such networks to other countries regularly and without controls, including to countries that do not afford the same level of data protection as your country of domicile.
7.2. For certain services, we use strong encryption to transfer your data (e-payment, for example). In these cases you will be told separately about the treatment of this data and about the details of encryption.
7.3. Your data may be lost during transmission or may be accessed by unauthorized parties. We do not accept any liability for direct or indirect losses as regards the security of your data during its transfer via Internet.
The Site may contain hyperlinks to other websites that are not operated or monitored by the Company. These other websites are not subject to this Policy and we are not responsible for their content or for the policy they apply to the treatment of personal data. We recommend that you read the policy used by these websites and check how these websites protect your personal data and whether they are trustworthy.
10. Security Measures

10.3. The Company’s personnel do not have access to the User’s password and are not entitled to know the User’s password or to access the security privileges to the users.
