1. Positive identification
The Dell Store website is registered with site identification authorities to enable your browser to confirm the Dell Store's identity before any transmission is sent. With this technology,
- the identity of our site is automatically confirmed behind the scenes prior to the transmission of any customer information requested to complete an online order
- your data reaches your intended target or your browser notifies you (prior to your sending any personal information) that the potential receiving site looks suspicious and should be avoided
2. Data encryption
If you are using a security-enabled browser (such as Microsoft Internet Explorer version 2.1 or greater, or Netscape Navigator version 2.0 or greater), the information you send us regarding your purchase is encrypted, making it extremely difficult to read even if it is wrongly intercepted.
The Dell Store utilizes industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to allow for the encryption of:
- potentially sensitive information such as your name and address
- critically sensitive information like your credit card number
If concerned only about the privacy of your credit card information, we encourage you to submit your order electronically without a credit card number and a sales representative will contact you to obtain this information.
If you are still uncomfortable with submitting your personal information via the Internet for any reason, please feel free to Contact Us over the phone or via fax to complete your order.
