From the time you submit your Login ID and Password or your SNS Account user ID and data token, these communications between your computer and bscharity.com are encrypted. This enables client and server applications to communicate in a way that is designed to prevent eavesdropping, tampering and message forgery.
9. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Login ID and Password.
