e-nautia provides many communication services. Some are private, such as e-mails, private messages between members and SMS. For these services, e-nautia imposes confidentiality on its infrastructure. Moreover, contrary to other services, e-nautia does not insert advertising links in your e-mails, does not use the content of your e-mails to display targeted advertisements and does not use your phone numbers or other coordinates to send you advertising without your consent.
Other communication services are public, like messages on forums, articles or comments on spaces. Nevertheless, you can delete your messages (online or by asking support), like those published on your space and you can forbid message publication on your space.
