Tips for email safety
Servus is always looking for ways to better communicate with our members. We're now using email to tell you about offers and events so you can get the most value from your Servus membership. We're making every effort to safeguard your personal information. And we're meeting all anti-spam and privacy regulations.
Making sure your personal information is secure online is a shared responsibility. You play a key role in watching for online attempts to steal your usernames, passwords or credit card details, which is called phishing.
Phishing works by impersonating emails from companies and organizations that you know and trust. Here are a few tips for protecting yourself:
- Check the email sender's address carefully. All emails from Servus will have a familiar address.
- Watch for misspelled words and punctuation errors. Phishing emails are often sent without being proofread.
- Beware of "urgent" or "emergency" messages threatening dire consequences if you don't take certain actions. Servus will never communicate with you in this way.
- Hover your mouse over links to make sure they match a page on our servus.ca website address. If a link will send you to another site, don't click on it.
