How We Collect Personal and Non-Personal Information Through the Online Services
We collect two kinds of information through the Online Services: non-personal information and personal information.
The non-personal information we collect includes: the visitor’s browser type, device type, and operating system; area(s) of the Online Services visited; date and time of access; host or Internet service provider (ISP) information; and identification of the referring site (any site from which the visitor accessed the Online Services). We use this information to track the total number of individuals using the Online Services and to guide our efforts to improve the Online Services.
We also collect personal information that can identify a visitor or user, including but not limited to name, address or other contact information, policy information, or information provided for roadside assistance services, only when you voluntarily provide it, and we use that information solely for purposes that are clearly identified on the Online Services.
In addition, certain of the Online Services may collect precise information about the location of your mobile device, but only with your express consent. Once you have consented to the collection of the precise location of your mobile device, you may adjust this consent by managing your location services preferences through the settings of your mobile device.

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
The dallassecurity.net site uses a server with an SSL Certificate to secure this site. Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
Cancellations prior to installation are subject to the original contract. Monitoring cancellations require a 30-day notice and subject to the terms and conditions of the original agreement. Refunds for credit card transactions will only be credited back to the credit card that was initially charged.
