Transaction and Account Security
Security of Account is important to us and we have taken several steps to protect all your account-related information.
We encourage all our customers do certain things that will help protect their account and personal information.
Account Verification Processes
Your Gimot account is subject to verification in order to maintain high levels of protection, Trust and Security. If you are a new Gimot customer and you create a new account using the Gimot software and website, you must provide some personal information and complete the email verification process. After your account is up and running, we carry out some manual and automated risk management processes that allow us to identify suspicious account activity. The purpose is to identify any registration that seems inconsistent with your past usage. we work with some industry leading service providers to carry out the verification of personal and financial information. Our third-party services providers will never contact you directly for any information.
whenever you log in to your Gimot account, you log in using a secure server connection (https://). We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) with 256-bit encryption, the industry standard in secure server protection. Your account is also protected by a unique password that you create. You should not use common words or phrases as your password. Instead, your password should be at least six characters including both numbers and letters using upper and lower cases. You should keep this password confidential. Sharing your password will compromise the security of your Gimot account.
Be careful of Internet Scams
- Do not make a payment to claim lottery or prize winnings, or on a promise of receiving a large amount of money.
- Do not make a payment because you are “guaranteed” a credit card or loan.
- Do not respond to an Internet or phone offer that you aren’t sure is honest.
- Do not make a payment to someone you don’t know or whose identity you cannot confirm.
Identifying Phishing or Spoofed E-mails
You may be sent an e-mail that looks like it came from Gimot, but is in fact not genuine. Such an e-mail may direct you to a website that looks similar to the Gimot website. You might even be asked to provide account information such as your e-mail address and password. These false websites can steal your sensitive account and payment information in order to commit fraud. These false e-mails may contain potential viruses or malware that can detect passwords or sensitive data. We therefore recommend that you install an anti-virus program and keep it updated at all times. Here are some key points to keep in mind as part of a defence against fraudulent emails:
- Your full National Insurance number or date of birth.
- Your credit card number, PIN, or credit card security code. We recommend that you not open any e-mail attachments from suspicious or unknown sources. E-mail attachments can contain viruses that infect your computer when the attachment is opened. If you receive a suspicious e-mail purportedly sent from Gimot that contains an attachment we recommend that you delete the e-mail, without opening the attachment. Look for poor grammar or typographical errors. Some phishing e-mails are translated from other languages or are sent without being proofread, and as a result, contain bad grammar or typographical errors. Is the e-mail from Gimot? While phishers can send a forged e-mail to make it look like it came from Gimot, you can sometimes determine whether it’s authentic by checking the return address. If the “from” line of the e-mail looks like “Gimotsecurity@hotmail.com” or “firstname.lastname@example.org”, or contains the name of another Internet service provider, you can be sure it’s not genuine.
