Communication by electronic mail

E-mail communication involves certain intrinsic technical disadvantages, including the fact that unencrypted e-mail messages sent via the open, publicly-accessible internet, may be accessed (lack of confidentiality) or manipulated (lack of integrity) by unauthorised persons. Also, the sender information of e-mail messages may have been manipulated (lack of authentication). When communicating with DG HYP by e-mail, you should bear in mind that this communication channel is not as confidential or secure as sending a letter. Therefore, you should critically assess which information you wish to transmit to us by e-mail. Please refrain from sending us unsolicited advertising, and from submitting instructions.
