What does Garmin do to protect the data I transmit to the flyGarmin Website?
The flyGarmin website uses industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to allow for the encryption of personal information such as your name and address, as well as critically sensitive information such as your credit card number. Garmin engages a company that is an industry leader in online security and site verification to ensure the security of the flyGarmin site. The flyGarmin website is also registered with site identification authorities so that your browser can confirm Garmin's identity before any personal information is sent. In addition, Garmin's secure servers protect this information using advanced firewall technology.
What can I do to help make sure the security works correctly?
Most browsers have the ability to notify you if you change between secure and insecure communications, receive invalid site identification information for the site you are communicating with, or send information over an unsecured connection. Garmin recommends that you enable these browser functions to help ensure that your communications are secure. You can also monitor the URL of the site you are visiting (secure URLs begin with https:// rather than the normal http://), along with the security symbol of your browser (an open or closed padlock in Netscape or a broken or complete key in Internet Explorer) to help identify when you are communicating with a secure server. You can also view the details of the security certificate of the site to which you are connected. Garmin encourages you to use this to check the validity of any site you connect to using secure communications.
Is Garmin responsible for all of the material I see on the flyGarmin website?
Garmin does maintain responsibility for and authority over all information contained on the flyGarmin website. However, Garmin may post links to sites that Garmin does not control. Garmin is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of these sites.
