THANK YOU FOR VISITING

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used at this DFW ALARM site.

THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT:

     At some DFW ALARM sites and affiliated sites ("sites"), you can download and view manuals, send email requests and supply payment information. The types of personally identifiable information that may be collected at these pages include: name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number, credit card information, and information about your interests in and use of various products, programs, and services.

     You can submit information about other people. For example, you might submit a person's name as a referral for our services The types of personally identifiable information that may be collected about other people at these pages include: recipient's name, address, e-mail address, and telephone number.

USE OF INFORMATION:

     As a general policy NO personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, or e-mail address, is automatically collected from your visit to DFW ALARM Sites. However, certain non-personal information is recorded by the standard operation of our Internet provider’s servers. Information such as the type of browser being used, its operating system, and your IP address is gathered in order to enhance your online experience.

    We sometimes use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of our site and to enable us to personalize your Internet experience. We also may use this information in the aggregate to analyze site usage, as well as to offer you products, programs, or services.

     Our Sites' various registration forms and surveys may request that you give us contact information (such as your name, mailing and/or e-mail address) demographic information (such as your age and gender) and profile data. Information submitted at the time of registration or submission may be used for marketing and promotional purposes by DFW ALARM and its subsidiaries, and may be shared with our promotional partners. Personally identifiable information is never sold or leased to any third parties. With your permission, we may use your contact information to send you information about our companies and what we’re doing. You may always opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the Choice/Opt-out section below.

     Our Sites use various order forms for you to request information, products, and services. We collect contact information (such as your name, mailing and/or e-mail address), and when appropriate, financial information (your credit card number) to process your request or purchase. Contact information from an order form is used to fulfill orders, and to provide information about our company to you if requested. The contact information is also used to get in touch with you when necessary regarding your order. Financial information that is collected is used to process your request for products and services, and will not be shared with third parties who are not involved with the transaction. When credit card information is transmitted we use industry standard, SSL (secure socket layer) encryption.

     Employees of DFW ALARM who have access to personally identifiable information are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Notice by, for example, not using the information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for DFW ALARM.

     Finally, DFW ALARM sites will not use or transfer personally identifiable information provided to us in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you with an opportunity to opt out of these unrelated uses.

     To the extent that any of our Sites accessible through the URL www.dfwalarm.com have additional or different practices or policies, these practices will be explained at that Site.

SECURITY:

     Security for all personally identifiable information is extremely important to us. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, DFW ALARM cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.

     Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Notice. Inadvertent disclosures may result, for example, when third parties misrepresent their identities in asking the site for access to personally identifiable information about themselves for purposes of correcting possible factual errors in the data.

     DFW ALARM may disclose user information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference (either intentionally or unintentionally) with DFW ALARM rights or property, other DFW ALARM web site users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. We will disclose information we maintain when required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. We also may disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency's written request.

FOR PARENTS CONCERNING PRIVACY:

     DFW ALARM does not support, promote, advertise, or support any site with adult explicit material. Also, DFW ALARM complies with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998. This means that on DFW ALARM Sites specifically directed to children under the age of 13 which collect personal information ("Children’s Sites"), DFW ALARM takes the following steps to ensure that parents are aware of and approve the information which is collected. Each Children’s Site has a clear and prominent link to this privacy policy. Each Children’s Site has the name and contact information of the DFW ALARM division which is collecting the information. On all Children’s Sites, parents will be informed of the kind of information that is collected (i.e. name, address, email, hobbies), how such information is collected (such as directly from filling out a form, or via cookies if tied to individually identifiable information), and how the information will be used. DFW ALARM will also post at the Site whether the information is disclosed to third parties, whether the information will be kept confidential by such third party, and that the parent may refuse to allow DFW ALARM to share the information with third parties. DFW ALARM is committed to collecting only information that is necessary for children to participate in the particular activity where such information is requested. Information collected from children will never be shared with third parties without verifiable parental consent.

     In addition, if the Site presents the opportunity for children under 13 to register for a particular activity such as a contest, or to receive ongoing communications from DFW ALARM, the child is required to provide the e-mail address of his/her parent or guardian and that parent or guardian receives an e-mail containing the information set forth in this privacy policy, and alerting them to that registration. Depending on the type of information requested and the nature of the activity for which the child is registering, DFW ALARM may require that parents e-mail and/or fax their permission for their child to register. Parents may consent to the collection and use of their child’s personal information without consenting to disclosure of such information to third parties.

     Although children under 13 years of age may be allowed to participate in some contests and promotions, if such an entrant wins, notification and prizes are sent to the parent or guardian identified in the initial registration process. Publication of names, ages, or images for contest winners under 13 require parental or guardian consent.

The site you are visiting is one of the DFW ALARM general audience sites. For more information about our online privacy practices for children's sites, consult the privacy notice at the children's site in which you are interested.

USE OF COOKIES:

     Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to an individual's computer hard drive for record keeping purposes. Cookies make using our Sites easier by, among other things, saving your passwords and preferences for you. As an example, we use cookies to keep track of your shopping cart when you visit our online store, and help identify you when you return to the Store. These cookies are restricted for use only on our Sites, and do not transfer any personal information to any other party. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies; however, you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent. (Note: you will need to consult the help area of your browser application for instructions.) If you choose to disable your cookies setting or refuse to accept a cookie, some parts of DFW ALARM web sites will not function properly or may be considerably slower. For example, without cookies, you will not be able to set personalized preferences or you may have difficulty completing shopping transactions, entering contests, or playing games.

     To enhance your experience with our sites, many of our web pages use "cookies." Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your e-mail address or other personally identifiable information unless you choose to provide this information to us by, for example, registering at one of our sites. However, once you choose to furnish the site with personally identifiable information, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie.

     We use cookies to understand site usage and to improve the content and offerings on our sites. For example, we may use cookies to personalize your experience at our web pages (e.g. to recognize you by name when you return to our site), save your password in password-protected areas, and enable you to use shopping carts on our sites. We also may use cookies to offer you products, programs, or services.

USE OF IP ADDRESSES:

     An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet provider whenever you're surfing the Web. When you requests pages from DFW ALARM Sites, our servers log your IP address. DFW ALARM collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to our advertisers, and to audit the use of our Site. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that your session will be logged, but you are anonymous to us. We may use your IP addresses in cooperation with your Internet provider to identify you if we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our Terms of Use or to protect our service, Sites, customers, or others.

 

OUR COMMITMENT TO SECURITY:

     We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect online. To protect your privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to help verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.

 BULLETIN BOARDS  AND CHAT AREAS:

     Guests of DFW ALARM Sites are solely responsible for the content of messages they post on public forums, such as chat rooms and bulletin boards. Users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personal information (e.g., user name, e-mail address, phone number) on the bulletin boards or in the chat areas, that information can be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other people.

LINKS TO OTHER SITES:

     DFW ALARM is not responsible for the content or practices of third party websites that may be linked to our Sites. Our Sites may also be linked to websites operated by other companies whose information practices may be different than ours. Visitors to these web sites should refer to each web site's respective privacy policies and practice notices as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.

     DFW ALARM sites sometimes may offer contests, sweepstakes, or promotions that are sponsored by or co-sponsored with identified third parties. By virtue of their sponsorship, these third parties may obtain personally identifiable information that visitors voluntarily submit to participate in the contest, sweepstakes, or promotion. DFW ALARM has no control over the third-party sponsors' use of this information.

CHOICE/OPT-OUT:

     Our Sites may provide you the opportunity to opt-in to receive communications from us at the point where we request information about you. You always have the option of removing your name from any e-mail list to not receive future communications. In order to ensure immediate removal from any list, it is best to follow the specific instructions outlined within the communications you receive from us since DFW ALARM may operates other sites tailored to specific interests. However, if you are unable to complete the process indicated in the communications, then just send us an e-mail with a copy of the undesired email attached to the request and state you wish to be removed from the mailing list.

CONTACT US:

     Please contact us if you have any questions about this privacy statement, the practices of our Sites, or your dealings with our Sites. Information provided by you via general e-mail inquiries to DFW ALARM such as your e-mail address is used only to respond to your inquiries in the ordinary course of business, and is never shared with third parties.

     By using DFW ALARM Sites, you signify your acceptance of the DFW ALARM Online Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use our Sites.
