Copypedia will post a reasonably prominent notice to the Website(s) if any such security breach occurs.

The Website(s) has security risks in addition to any described above. Among other things, the Website(s) is vulnerable to DNS attacks, and using the Website(s) may increase the risk of phishing.

We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.
