Sprint does not provide personal information to advertising or similar companies.  Some Sites may allow advertising companies to place cookies or deliver ads on those Sites or may contain links to other websites that are owned and operated by those companies or other third parties.  You should be aware that when you click on these ads, or when you access these other websites, their operators may deploy onto your computer cookies or other mechanisms to receive information about ad viewing by internet users on Sprint Sites and their use of such other websites.  Sprint is not responsible and does not accept liability for these other websites, or the products or services advertised on these other websites, or the processing of personal information or other information through these other websites.

When you are ordering new services or products through a Site, we employ the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol for the transmission of the information from you to us.  Also, we use encryption technologies to protect your account information when you are viewing your bill on a Site or via email.  You should be aware that Sprint has no control over the security of other sites on the Internet you might visit, interact with, or from which you buy products or services.

You should keep your user name, password or other access information safe and confidential to protect against unauthorized access to your account information and services.  And you should adopt passwords that others cannot easily guess.

Sprint has implemented technology and security features and strict policy guidelines to safeguard the privacy of your personal information from unauthorized or accidental access, erasure or improper use, and Sprint will continue to enhance our security procedures as new technology becomes available.
