Security of your Personal Information
Whether you are receiving services, shopping online, or in our stores, we use reasonable security measures to protect the confidentiality of personal information under our control and appropriately limit access to it. Techie Solutions cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us by e-mail, and you do so at your own risk.
Please note: While Techie Solutions is able to protect personal information that is provided during the course of business, Techie Solutions cannot take responsibility for data loss on the products or systems serviced. You will need to ensure your data has been removed or backed up in order to safeguard this information.

Remote Access
Techie Solutions offers remote access service to assist in diagnosing and resolving system issues. This process allows a Techie Solutions Agent to remotely access your computer to determine the problem and either repair it or provide advice on what options are available to fix the issue. By taking advantage of this service, you are giving permission to a Techie Solutions Agent to log into your computer which may contain personal information. A Techie Solutions Agent will only search your computer to determine the cause of the problem and will attempt to limit their interaction with your files to a minimum. It is your responsibility to ensure all of your files, especially those containing personal information, are secure to prevent any type of data loss or corruption.
Safe Shopping Policy on tsaustin.net

The Techie Solutions Web site uses encryption Techienology, such as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), to protect your personal information during data transport. SSL protects information you submit via our Web site such as order information including your name, address, and credit card number. Information you provide to us via our in-store kiosk does not traverse the public Internet.
