When the contract is signed, we will create an account for you and provide the access details by e-mail. Since these are highly sensitive data, the message must be encrypted. Therefore we will ask you to provide a PGP public key.
PGP stands for "Pretty Good Privacy". Despite the name, it is an extremely secure and widely used data encryption method.
Creating a PGP "key pair" spawns both a
public key and a
private key. When you share the
public key, others can send you encrypted data that only you can decrypt. The
private key is never shared, only used for decryption of received messages.
