following some of these safety tips:
1. Choose a good password: Use at least 8 characters and a combination
of letters and numbers. Do not use single dictionary words, your name

2. Password protection: Avoid using the same password at multiple

to come from reputable online shops or services that ask you to submit
personal information such as your credit card number, email address,

on a link and “sign in”. You should never provide this kind of
personal information in an unsolicited email.
Please accept our most sincere apologies for any resulting
inconveniences, and feel free to contact us if you have any further
