Vulnerability Disclosure Policy
At Education Horizons we take the security of our systems very seriously, and we value the security community. The disclosure of security vulnerabilities helps us ensure the security and privacy of our users.
We require that all researchers:
- Make every effort to avoid privacy violations, degradation of user experience, disruption to production systems, and destruction of data during security testing;
- Perform research only within the scope set out below;
- Be aware of any acceptable use policies that you are bound to as an employee or student and make every effort not to violate them;
- Use the identified communication channels to report vulnerability information to us; and
- Keep information about any vulnerabilities that you have discovered confidential between yourself and Education Horizons until we have communicated you that we have resolved the issue.
If you follow these guidelines when reporting an issue to us, we commit to:
- Not pursue or support any legal action related to your research;
- Work with you to understand and resolve the issue quickly (including an initial confirmation of your report within 72 hours of submission);
- Recognise your contribution on this page, if you are the first to report the issue and we make a code or configuration change based on the issue.
- Any Education Horizons product.
