NOTE: the provenance of this information is unknown; the details are obtained solely from third party information.

It does not contain any sensitive user information. When a user payroll database is opened, the encryption of the database is checked and if the database is not encrypted, the user is prompted to encrypt the database, but the choice is the customers."
