The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act required companies to inform clients on how nonpublic information is handled. At Dial One Security we not only post the policy on our WEB site but we also include a copy of the policy for new clients.
The Federal Trade Commission has a great WEB page to help you limit unsolicited mail, email, telemarketing, and pre-approved credit offers.
In the course of providing you with the services and products we offer, we collect personal information about you not otherwise publicly available. We are required by a new federal law to inform clients of our policies regarding privacy of client information.
