  • To report, use the appropriate  form "Notification Responsible Disclosure"(external link).
  • Please provide enough information to reproduce the problem so that we can resolve it as soon as possible.
  • We recommend tips to help us solve the problem. Please limit yourself to verifiable facts that relate to the vulnerability you have identified and avoid that your advice in fact amounts to advertising for specific (security) products.
  • You avoid invasion of privacy, degradation of user experience, disruption to production systems and destruction of data during security testing;
  • Do not share the problem with others until it is resolved.

  • Social engineering and / or physical testing (eg phishing, tailgating);
  • Using techniques that reduce the availability and / or usability of the system or services (eg DoS attacks).
  • Placing malware.
  • Copy, change or delete data in the system.

  • We will keep you informed of our efforts to resolve the vulnerability;
  • If you meet all of the above conditions, we will not file a criminal charge against you or bring a civil action against you.
