New Secure Access to PATENTSCOPE
February 12, 2015
Access to the PATENTSCOPE website and all of the associated functionality is now made via the secure http protocol https. This ensures a strong encryption of our patent search and translation services and ensures the users of our systems such as PATENTSCOPE and Translation Assistant for Patent Titles and Abstracts (TAPTA) 1 automatically have a secure connection.
This encryption provides users with search confidentiality, ensuring search queries and results lists remain confidential, their browsing activity remains hidden and integrity of all user data which protects account data, identity data, search data and results from being modified or monitored.
The presence of the https lock icon in the address field of the web browser, as shown below, also ensures that our users are connected to the genuine PATENTSCOPE web site and not to a fraudulent site.
This new feature brings PATENTSCOPE into line with the highest standards of search confidentiality for all users automatically.
