Your Security, We Can All Play a Part!
At First Option, we take the protection of your information and transaction data very seriously. But online security is a partnership between us (as the provider of online services to you) and you (the user of these services). As such, it's important that you do two things:
1) Keep Informed
Technology cannot automatically protect you against all fraud and security risks. A range of email and other online frauds have been attempted over the last few years; these scams will continue and you should be aware of them.
Things you can do to keep informed:
2) Improve Your Online Security
Equally, technological protection cannot protect you if you are careless with your personal information. You need to play your part in protecting your information responsibly and in accordance with our terms and conditions.
