We recognize the particular importance of protecting privacy where children are involved. We are committed to protecting children’s privacy on the Internet and we comply fully with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. If a child has provided our website with personally identifiable information, we ask that a parent or guardian call 860-632-9494 extension 8271 or contact us by email and we will delete the information about the child from our files.
Our Commitment to Data Security
We have appropriate physical, electronic, and procedural security safeguards to protect and secure the information we collect.
In order to maintain the authenticity and confidentiality of the information you provide online to the Wireless Zone Group, including the Wireless Zone Group’s online purchase order forms, the Wireless Zone Group utilizes secure server technology which uses a secure socket layer (SSL) protocol to secure a connection between your browser and the Wireless Zone Group’s Web server. The SSL protocol protects the integrity of your correspondence with the Wireless Zone Group by providing three major security capabilities:
The information send between your browser and our Web server is encrypted so an unauthorized third party may not read the contents of the message.
While SSL is active, you can view the identity and owner of the Web server your browser is connected to by clicking on the closed padlock. This information is contained in a digital certificate issued by a public certificate authority and exchanged with your browser when the SSL connection is established.
SSL provides a mechanism which verifies that the data has not been tampered with between the time the sender sent it and the receiver received it.
There may be a slight change in the appearance of your browser when you enter the online purchase order forms. This change may vary depending on the type and version of the browser you use. While the SSL connection is active, you will see a note at the bottom of each page indicating a secure connection is active. You will also see a closed padlock at the lower left or right corner of your browser (depending on which browser you are using).
