Reducing the Risks of unwanted Collection of your Personal Data

It is our goal is to ensure your information remains private. One way we achieve this is by requiring you to provide only the minimal amount of information needed for access. We also do not archive or store your data for long periods of time. You can further protect your information by doing the following:

  1. When you are filling the forms on the website, make sure to ensure you are using the correct logon credentials.
  2. Be aware of "Shoulder Surfing": Shoulder Surfing is a visual hack where an attacker gains access to sensitive information by observing a user's screen, keystrokes and other habits when logging on to a system. To help prevent such attacks, we recommend the following:
  3. Watch out for phishing: Phishing attacks use online communications (usually email) to trick users into giving out their sensitive information. Often these messages appear to be from banks, social media sites, shopping sites, or payment processers. Phishing messages frequently contain links that lead to counterfeit versions of popular sites. You can avoid falling victim to phishing schemes by ignoring unsolicited messages and not clicking on hyperlinks or attachments in emails (type or copy/paste the URL as it appears instead).
  4. Disable stored passwords: Nearly all browsers and many websites in general offer to remember your passwords for future use. Enabling this feature stores your passwords in one location on your computer, making them easier for an attacker to discover if your system gets compromised. If you have this feature enabled, disable it, and clear your stored passwords.
