Credit Europe Online Banking Safety Measures
What is the intention of the safety measures?
Credit Europe Bank is strongly committed to protecting your funds and confidential information. We strive to provide the most secure environment possible as we want you to be confident when accessing your financial information online. While we work to protect your banking privacy, you will also play an important role in protecting your accounts and personal information. Please take the following steps to ensure your account information is protected.
Why is it important that you adhere to these measures?
As you adhere to the security measures described below, you will significantly reduce the chance that you fall victim to fraudsters. The security measures ensure that your confidential transactions and personal information remain safe, secure and private.
1. Keep your security codes confidential.
2. Make sure your debit card is never used by another person.
3. Take care of properly secured equipment that you use for your banking transactions.
4. Check your bank account on a regular basis.
5. Please report incidents directly to Credit Europe Bank and follow the instructions of the bank.
Keep your security codes confidential.
- Make sure that you never disclose your security codes to anyone else. Security codes are all codes that you need to use for electronic payments, internet and mobile banking, including the codes provided by a code calculator of your bank.
- Security codes are only for yourself. You are not authorized to share them.
- Do not write down or save the codes in any way. If absolutely necessary, save your codes in a form that is recognizable to you but nobody else, so it cannot be deciphered by others. Keep the encrypted information separate from your debit card or the device that you use to perform your banking affairs.
- If you choose your own security code, make sure it is not easy to identify. Do not choose your year of birth, name of a family member or the post code of your home address.
- Make sure that no one can observe you as you type in your security codes. Never share a security code by phone or email or in any other way. If someone calls you up on behalf of your bank and asks you to provide personal data, refrain from taking any action at all, for Credit Europe Bank will never ask you to provide this kind of information.
