Recommendations to users

HOUSERS recommends that users employ the latest versions of their computer programs, given that these have improved security measures in place.

HOUSERS also recommends that users employ any security mechanisms available to them (secure Web servers, cryptography, digital signatures, firewalls, etc.) to protect the confidentiality and integrity of their data to the extent that it is necessary, given the risks of impersonation or communication violation.

HOUSERS reminds users that the Internet is not always as secure as we would like. In this sense, they must adopt the necessary and adequate technical measures in order to avoid the unauthorised processing of their data.

HOUSERS warns users that whenever they provide personal information over the Internet through email, newsgroups, discussion forums, etc., they should be aware that this information may be collected and processed for purposes unwanted by users. As such, HOUSERS recommends that users consult the confidentiality and privacy policies of the websites they visit.

HOUSERS warns users that, unless they use encryption mechanisms, sending email is not secure. Email messages and discussion groups can be subject to falsification and impersonation, which must be taken into account whenever these are used. If users do not want to publish their email addresses, they should configure their web browser so that it does note leave their email addresses on the web servers they access.
