[id : 486] [17/03/2015] [hits : 3206]

Your password is personal and should be kept as such. Never communicate it to anyone, not even to University staff.

4.1 Terms of use

For obvious security reasons, your password will not be show in the final review of your activation process. You will have to directly memorise it. Keep in mind that your password is personal and should be kept as such. Never communicate it to anyone, not even to University staff.

Your password is the key to all your access rights, and therefore, every individual responsible for an account must ensure it's security and take all the necessaries steps in keeping the password confidential. The use of your account by any other individual would ultimately rely on the responsibility of the owner.

Please note that any oversight of those security measures would seriously compromise the other members of the ULB/VUB university community.
