Bug Bounty Program

Rules of engagement

By submitting reports or otherwise participating in this program, you agree that you have read and will follow this program's Rules and Legal Terms that you can find below

Program rules

Violation of any of these rules can result in ineligibility for a bounty and/or removal from the program.

  • Test vulnerabilities only on accounts that you own or on accounts that you have permission to test from the account holder.
  • Never use a finding to compromise/exfiltrate/modify/destroy data or to pivot to other systems. Use a proof of concept only to demonstrate an issue.
  • Researchers are not authorized and must not engage in any activity that would be disruptive, damaging or harmful to Kentico Group, its brands or its users. This includes social engineering, unsolicited messages, phishing, physical security and any type of denial-of-service attacks, especially automatic tools, against users, employees, or Kentico Group as a whole.
  • Abide by the program scope. Only reports submitted to this program and on assets in scope will be eligible for a monetary award.
  • Testing third party websites, applications or services that integrate with Kentico Xperience services are not allowed.
  • Any illegal activity (unless it is illegal to do security research, in which case go right ahead) is prohibited.
  • Researchers must not publicly disclose vulnerabilities (sharing any details whatsoever with anyone other than authorized Kentico Xperience employees), or otherwise share vulnerabilities with a third party, without the express written permission of Kentico Group.
  • Contacting Kentico Xperience Support by any means in relation to this bounty program (pre-validating reports, testing them, asking for updates, etc.) is not allowed. We may disqualify you from receiving a reward, or from participating in the program altogether.

Legal terms

In connection with your participation in this program, you agree to comply with the Kentico Group Privacy Policy, and all applicable laws and regulations, including any laws or regulations governing privacy or the lawful processing of data.
