Back to the top II. Security
All order forms on ConnectTo.com utilize a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) or Secure Electronic Transaction (SET) protocol to provide “secure sessions” for our visitors. Through the “secure session,” information that you input into a ConnectTo.com order form will be sent and will arrive privately and unaltered at a ConnectTo server. This security prohibits other companies and Web users from being able to access your information.
