In the absence of authorisation, access is refused.
- All access attempts, both successful and unsuccessful, are logged (user ID, computer, IP address used) and archived in an audit-compliant format for 3 months. In order to detect misuse, the server performs repeated, random checks;
- Access is blocked after repeated incorrect login attempts.
- Constant checking of platform vulnerabilities, which could allow the extraction of personal information and data. The hosting has security measures and solutions that recurrently scan the processed files and data flow circulating within the platform;

- Adoption of security measures without differentiating between types of customers (new/existing/potential);
- Adoption of an internal policy of verification of processes and processing at the time of product delivery or information retrieval regarding an order or possible offer;
