The Service Provider informs that in connection with the use of services provided by electronic means, the User remains exposed to threats, including in the form of:
operation of spying software,
impersonating for the purpose of fraudulent misrepresentation,
The risks relate not only to computers but also to other mobile equipment such as smartphones and tablets.
Spyware is such software which can be installed on the User's device in a hidden way, e.g. by entering a prepared website or launching a file sent in the post office. It can monitor/send to the attacker both the data placed on the device and the User's actions: mouse movements, text typed in from the keyboard, start previewing/listening from the camera and microphone.
Phishing is the placing on the Internet of fake websites imitating the original ones and to persuade Users to log in to them, e.g. by sending a crafted mail message which pretends to be a message from an authentic institution or person. The aim is to intercept access data to the service (login, password).
A computer virus is malware that is transmitted by saving an infected file on a data carrier, e.g. a hard disk or a flash drive. The purpose of a virus is to steal or delete data, interfere with the device or take control over it. Most often a computer virus is infected after downloading files from an untrusted Internet source or opening an attachment in an e-mail.
Spam are unsolicited or unnecessary electronic messages sent simultaneously to many recipients. They often carry computer viruses, spyware and links to malicious sites.
In order to ensure safe use of the Internet, every User should:
ensure the safety of the device being used. In particular, the device should have an antivirus program with an up-to-date virus definition database, an up-to-date and secure version of the Internet browser and a firewall on,
check periodically that the operating system and the programmes installed on the device have the latest updates, as errors detected in previously installed software versions are used in attacks,
secure access data to services offered on the Internet - e.g. logins, passwords, PINs, electronic certificates, etc., such data should not be disclosed or stored on the device in a form that allows easy access and reading,
be careful when opening attachments or clicking on links in messages that we did not expect from unknown senders, for example. If you have any doubts, you should contact the sender,
use antiphishing filters or other tools to verify that the page displayed is not fraudulent.
download and install files only from trusted sources,
establish a secure and hard to crack network access password (Wi-fi). The use of trusted standards of encryption for wireless Wi-Fi networks such as WPA2 is also recommended,
control physical access to devices.
