WHAT RECOMMENDATIONS DO WE MAKE TO PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL SECURITY & SAFETY?
Our registration pages and your PCP are displayed on encrypted web pages using an SSL certificate. When viewing these pages you will see the SSL padlock symbol . This enhanced security encrypts all data and the SSL certificate confirms that communication between your browser and secured areas of our website is encrypted.
Whilst our system has safeguards built in to help protect your privacy, these safeguards cannot prevent you from putting sensitive information into information fields on your profile or in your CV and we advise all Profile Holders to exercise caution when adding any form of contact information to their profiles.
In order to protect the privacy of all Registered Users we do provide a contact facility on the web site that enables registered Agents to submit an enquiry to a profile holder - this is done via our internal messaging service and doesn't reveal any personal contact information to the agent. However, VERIFIED Agents (agents that we know are genuine, responsible organisations) would be able to see your telephone number on your profile, but ONLY if you've ticked the box in your control panel to make this available.
If you upload a CV to your profile you must remember that this will be visible to the general public and therefore you should ensure that you do not include any sensitive or personal information such as telephone number(s), email or postal address, NI number, etc
We also recommend that you do NOT include any sensitive information in the 'Experience', 'Personal Profile' or 'Skills' areas of your profile - publishing your telephone number or email address in these areas could lead to unsolicited spam mail or worse.
StarsInMyEyes.TV cannot be held responsible for any consequences resulting from a profile holder publishing personal and/or confidential and/or sensitive information in publicly viewable fields in their profile.
