This policy is intended to give security researchers and other participants in the security community clear guidelines under the LifeLabs Vulnerability Disclosure Program for conducting vulnerability discovery activities directed at web properties owned or operated by LifeLabs Inc., its affiliates, or subsidiaries (“LifeLabs”), and submitting discovered vulnerabilities to LifeLabs. Your participation in the program is voluntary and subject to the terms and conditions set forth on this page. By submitting a report, you acknowledge and agree to the terms and conditions contained in this Policy.
Keeping our client’s information safe and secure is a top priority and a core concept that we continue to improve and evolve. The security community regularly makes valuable contributions to the security of organizations and LifeLabs recognizes that fostering a close relationship with the community will help improve our own security. So if you have information about a vulnerability in an LifeLabs system or web application, we want to hear from you!
Adding this new program to our overall security repertoire will further strengthen our security posture, improve services and more importantly, to keep our client’s information safe when using our services.
We invite researchers to test the LifeLabs’ website and Web Applications in line with the principles set out in this brief.
As part of this program, you must review, understand, and agree to the following terms and conditions before conducting any testing of LifeLabs networks and before submitting a report.
Please note we will not be accepting feedback outside this form.
