Data Security

Access to CLEX is provided by a secure socket link (SSL) which encrypts information viewed online to ensure the security and confidentiality of the information which we hold. SSL is an industry standard and is one of the best ways to ensure Internet messages are not intercepted.

In addition to the steps which we take to safeguard your privacy and security, there are a number of steps you can take yourself:

1. If you do write your password down (which we do not recommend), keep it somewhere safe and secure.

2. When you have finished your session on CLEX, make sure that you prevent your details being seen by anyone that you do not wish to see them.

3. If you have registered and logged in, remember to log off at the end of your session.

4. Clear any ‘cache’ so there is no record of any transactions left on screen – both Netscape and Internet Explorer let you do this. We also recommend you then close your browser so any history of the session is cleared.

5. As an extra precaution, your session on CLEX will ‘time out’ if you have not used the site for 60 minutes.
