6. Is My Information Secure?

The 33rd World Veterinary Congress has put in place various physical, electronic and managerial procedures to try to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. For example, private account and participants information is located on a secured server behind a firewall; it is not directly connected to the Internet. Encryption is a process by which a message or information is scrambled while it is in transit to the 33rd World Veterinary Congress. It is based on a key that has two different parts, public and private. The public part of the key is distributed to those with whom you want to communicate. The private part is for the recipient's use only. So long as you use a browser that allows for encryption, when you send personal information to us, you use a public key to encrypt your personal information. If your information is intercepted during the transmission, it is scrambled and very difficult to decrypt. Once we receive your encrypted personal information, we use the private part of our key to decode it.

Please note however that while we implement many security measures on this site, 100% security cannot be guaranteed.

Thank you for your visit to the the 33rd World Veterinary Congress website. If you have any questions or comments about this policy, please email the 33rd World Veterinary Congress Secretariat (reg@wvc2017korea.com).
