You are responsible for safeguarding your data in My Rinkel. It is important to be aware of this because with the Rinkel Webphone, you will import several contacts into the web environment (by synchronising contacts via your mobile phone or cloud for example).

For example, we always recommend that you (and your colleagues) switch on a screen saver when you leave the workplace and always protect your computer with a password.
