Dear partner,

Our services have detected an increase in phishing malicious operations on the Internet. This technique is used by fraudsters to obtain personal information in order to perpetrate identity theft on the Internet. As a marketplace merchant, we advise you to be particularly vigilant.

For this reason we remind you of the following safety principles :

  • Never communicate your Seller Store loggin to a third party,
  • Change your password regularly,
  • Do not use a password that is being used elsewhere,
  • If a member of your teams leaves the company, change the password,
  • Use up-to-date antivirus software and activate its firewall,
  • Be very careful in case of receiving an email whose sender is unknown or whose content is questionable.

As a precautionary measure, we invite you to change your password in your Seller Store.

If you have any questions, you can contact us via the Help section of the Seller Store.

Thank you for your attention.

Sincerely,
The Cdiscount Marketplace team
