Customer Security Responsibilities
Keep your user passwords safe by following these tips.
- Use a strong password that is difficult for others to guess and avoid birthdays, names, and pet’s names. Be creative: think of a special phrase and use the first letter of each word as your password. Substitute numbers for some words or letters. For example, “I want to see the Pacific Ocean” could become 1W2CtPo
- Use more symbols and numbers in passwords. The reality is that longer, more complex logins are harder to breach.
- Never write down your password or share it with others.
- Never provide your Commissionly account login or password, credit card number, or other personal information via email or to unknown parties.
Note: Commissionly will never ask you for your password.
Avoid Phishing Emails
Don’t open files, click on links, or download programs sent by strangers. Opening a file from someone you don’t know could expose your system to a computer virus or spyware that captures your passwords or other information you type.
Read Privacy Policies
Yes, they can be long and complex, but they tell you how the site maintains accuracy, access, security, and control of the personal information it collects; how it uses the information, and whether it provides information to third parties.
Exercise caution using public computers (coffee shops, library, airport, hotel): Public web browsers can cache personal data and store login details. Always log off of web sites and clear the browser cache to protect your personal information, passwords, and accounts.
