While IVALIFE may from time to time send emails to its current and prospective customers, we will never ask you to disclose any of your personal or security details by email.
Where possible, we will include certain basic information about you in any email correspondence in order to confirm the genuineness thereof.
In the event that you receive emails that purport to originate from IVALIFE asking you to disclose all or some of your security information, you are strongly advised not to disclose any such information or to click on any links included in such emails.
If you receive an email from any person purporting to be from or connected with IVALIFE and asking you to ‘verify your account’, ‘confirm your sign-in details’, or a similarly worded request, this would certainly be a scam and you are strongly advised not to follow any such instructions/requests.
Your attention is drawn to the fact that while genuine emails from IVALIFE may contain links, these will never take you directly to a log-in page.
If you are ever in doubt about whether an email is genuine, do not click on its links or open any attachments, but please forward it to us at [email protected] While we will not be able to reply individually, kindly be assured that we do investigate every email to make sure that the appropriate authorities are informed of any misuse of the internet and that the necessary action is taken whenever necessary.
