Intermec's web site may contain links that provide you with access to Internet sites and services that are maintained by third parties. Those sites may have privacy and security policies that are different from those followed by Intermec. Intermec has no control over those sites and is not responsible or liable for the policies and practices followed by such third parties. It is always a good idea to check the privacy policy and terms of use of any site before offering any of your personal information.

Security

A. Encryption
Intermec uses industry standard encryption security measures to protect the privacy and integrity of the information you provide to us once it is received on our systems. We understand that using web site commerce can cause concern. Unfortunately, when you submit information about yourself to Intermec over the Internet, the information may travel over many systems that are not under the control of Intermec. While Intermec tries to protect the information you provide us, we can not ensure the secrecy of any information that you transmit to us. You transmit information to Intermec at your own risk.

Your purchase transactions with us are secure. They will always be encrypted even when you may think they are not. No one will be able to see your order, or your credit card number from our site. We can also assure you that we will not use or sell the information that you place on the order form.

Intermec's transaction frames are fully SSL encrypted. Encryption ensures that transaction information is sent securely but has a significant performance tradeoff in the browser environment. You may have noticed that the Intermec site employs a framed metaphor for easier navigation and more efficient page updates. With this in mind Intermec selectively places SSL encryption on only those forms and frames that need to be encrypted (e.g., the checkout). Since things like our product selectors and menus don't need to be slowed down by SSL we do not employ it there.

Unfortunately (but for obvious reasons) browsers won't show the safe "KEY" or "LOCK" unless each and every frame on the page is SSL encrypted. Thus, if only one frame is encrypted, the browser correctly reports that not everything you are looking at is "safe". However, the absence of the "lock" or "key" does not mean that the information you are looking at is not encrypted.

You can verify that a frame is SSL encrypted by right-clicking within the frame and looking at the frame info or properties (ie. Found in the "View" menu in Netscape and the "File" menu in Internet Explorer). Doing this within Intermec's checkout pages will indeed show that this information is being sent encrypted.

B. Password
It is vital for you to protect your password and account information. You should not share this information with anyone other than your employer. You retain sole responsibility for maintaining the secrecy of your password or other account information.

Acceptance of Terms
By using or visiting this site, you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by this Policy and the Intermec Terms of Use, both now and in the future. IF YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO BE BOUND BY THIS POLICY OR THE TERMS OF USE, DO NOT USE THIS SITE. Intermec reserves the rights to change or revise this Policy at any time in its sole discretion. You will be bound by any such revisions so you should visit this page periodically to become familiar with any such revisions.
