As per the principle of BPI, we never sell, rent, or otherwise provide your personal data to anybody. We try to provide all possible cyber-security (possible by us) to protect all the information of the users. But the reality is that no website is 100% hacking proof. Therefore, BPI will not be responsible for any loss/theft of data, personal information, email ID, password, etc. and any kind of subsequent losses arising from these hacking, theft etc. Users are strongly advised to set the password as strong as possible by using a combination of alpha-numeric-special characters. Users are also strongly requested to use the password (for BPI account) separate from the passwords of their credit card, bank, email ID, etc.
