Recommendations for users
The Port Authority of Seville recommends that visitors use fully updated versions of their software programmes because they will have greater levels of security.
The Port Authority of Seville also recommends visitors to use the security measures at their disposal (secure Web servers, encryption, digital signature, firewall, etc.) to protect the confidentiality and integrity of their data as they consider necessary, given the risk of identity theft or breach of communications.
The Port Authority of Seville reminds users that Internet is not always as secure as we would like it to be, so they must adopt the necessary and appropriate technical measures to prevent any unauthorised processing of their details.
The Port Authority of Seville warns users that whenever they provide personal information on the Internet, through email, news groups, discussion forums, etc, they should remember that this information may be captured and processed for undesirable ends by other users. The Port Authority of Seville therefore recommends users to seek information about the confidentiality and privacy policies of the sites they visit.
The Port Authority of Seville warns users to be aware that unless they use encryption software, email is not secure on the Internet. Email messages and discussion forums may be subject to fraudulent use and false identities, and they should bear this in mind when they use them. If they do not want to make their email address public, they must configure their browser not to leave their address in the web servers that it visits.
