We consider the security of our systems a top priority but unfortunately we’re still human and therefore we can make security mistakes in our daily job, so there can still be vulnerabilities present.
If you discover a vulnerability, we would like to know about it so we can take steps to address it as quickly as possible. We would like to ask you to help us better protect our clients and our systems.
Please do the following:
- E-mail your findings to email@example.com. If you like you can call, skype etc us day or night.
- Do not take advantage of the vulnerability or problem you have discovered, for example by downloading more data than necessary to demonstrate the vulnerability or deleting or modifying other people’s data,
- Do not reveal the problem to others,
- Do not use attacks on physical security, social engineering, distributed denial of service, spam or applications of third parties, and do provide sufficient information to reproduce the problem, so we will be able to resolve it as quickly as possible. Usually, the IP address or the URL of the affected system and a description of the vulnerability will be sufficient, but complex vulnerabilities may require further explanation.
What we promise:
- We will be thankful to you showing us the vulnerability you found.
- We will respond to your report as soon as possible of the report and an expected resolution date.
- If you have followed the instructions above, you’re the boss and we will give you a hug. Of course we will not take any legal action against you but you will be a friend for life!

The amount of the reward will be determined based on the severity of the leak and the quality of the report.
