How we Secure Your Data
Your security is of the upmost importance to Gartner Tech LLC. To provide credit card security and keep your personal information safe, we use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. That is the most widely used data encryption coding system for secure e-commerce transactions. All of your information is encrypted (scrambled) prior to being sent over the Internet to our system. Furthermore, to protect your information once we receive it, we place the data on systems behind secure firewalls using Securi, which are designed to keep information safe and inaccessible to other Internet users. If your browser doesn’t accept the SSL technology, transactions may not be permitted, and you’ll need to call to place your orders.
For return visits to our site, SSL technology allows the option to store your credit card information in our system securely. Doing business with Gartner Tech is safe, easy and secure.
To confirm that your connection is secure, look for a locked padlock icon or solid key icon in your browser window. The letters “https” (rather than “http”) located in the URL address window at the top of your browser also indicate that you are using a secure browser.
