Similarly, the PAV recommends that users use the security mechanisms that are available to them (secure Web servers, encryption, digital signature, firewall, etc.) to protect the confidentiality and integrity of their data to the extent to which this is necessary, given that there are risks of impersonation or violation of communication.
The PAV reminds users that the Internet is not always as secure as we would like, so the necessary and appropriate technical measures must be taken to avoid unauthorised data processing.
The PAV warns users that, whenever they provide personal information over the Internet via e-mail, newsgroups, discussion forums, etc., they should bear in mind that this information may be collected and processed for unwanted purposes by users, therefore the PAV recommends users to inform themselves about the confidentiality and privacy policies of the online sites that they visit.
The PAV warns users to bear in mind that, except when using encryption mechanisms, e-mail on the Internet is not secure. Email messages and discussion forums can be the subject of forgery and impersonation, which must be taken into account whenever using these. If you do not want to publish your e-mail address, configure your browser so that it does not leave your e-mail address on the web servers that are accessed.
