The purpose of the Information Security Policy is to ensure and protect the security, integrity and availability of all information used by BitcoinEscrowLtd. Below you can find the definition of these terms.


Confidentiality means that the information is accessible only to the individuals or parties permitted legally or with the consent of the concerned party. Confidentiality is violated in the case that the information is readable and/ or writable, editable, or accessible to those other than targeted.


Integrity means that the information is available to the targeted individuals or parties in consistency with its original form, without any distortion or change. A partial distortion or change on the information would mean an integrity violation.


Availability means the information is accessible when needed. The difference with confidentiality is that availability focuses on the accessibility of the information, whereas confidentiality concerns who has access to it.
