Site security
Our user details and privacy are taken very seriously at ESF and thats why in addition to the standard safety measures we have added additional checks.

For verification please be assured that no identifying information is retained beyond service and joined year.

For starters we have dedicated servers which are not shared with other websites and also our own dedicated IP address.

We have also taken the step of adding encryption to the site utilising sitelock systems which actively protects our systems from malware and hacking.

If theres a more secure forum online, we have never seen it.
