IMPORTANT - Your Responsibilities when using the EPKI Manager
Comodo has made the Certificate issuance process as fast and seamless as possible. The organization/company has a number of responsibilities that it must ensure when using the EPKI Manager:
- The organization/company must ensure that it has the right to use the domain name mentioned in the SSL application. Applications must be made only for the domain names owned by the organization/company.
- The individual named in the Corporate Secure Email Certificate application must be a bonafide employee/representative of the organization/company.
- Illegitimate certificate application could affect Comodo’s warranty and the EPKI Manager Account. It would be a breach of the EPKI Manager Subscriber Agreement.
