SafTag (“SafTag”) operates emergencykeytags.com and may operate other websites. It is SafeTag’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, SafTag collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. SafeTag’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how SafeTag’s visitors use its website. From time to time, SafTag may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
SafTag also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on emergencykeytags.com blogs/sites. SafTag only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to SafeTag’s websites choose to interact with SafTag in ways that require SafTag to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that SafTag gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at emergencykeytags.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with SafTag are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, SafTag collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with SafTag. SafTag does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
SafTag may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. SafTag may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, SafTag does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
SafTag discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on SafeTag’s behalf or to provide services available at SafeTag’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using SafeTag’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. SafTag will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, SafTag discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when SafTag believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of SafTag, third parties or the public at large.

How you can protect your information
Steps to protect your online accounts
1. Create a Strong Password
• Create a unique password for this site and don’t re-use passwords
• Don’t use a single word, even if you use letter substitutions
• Longer is better; sentences are okay as long as they’re not a well-known or well-used phrase
• Include numbers and special characters (&, !, ” are a few examples) to make your password even stronger
• Passwords are case-sensitive, so use a mixture of upper and lowercase letters
• Don’t use information easily found on the Internet (for example, personal information that could be found on Facebook, Twitter or other social media sites)
2. Change Passwords Often
You should change your password every 90 days to help protect your account.
3. Use Different Passwords Across Websites
Don’t use the same username and password combination for multiple websites.
4. Check Your Credit Card Charges
Be vigilant about ensuring all your charges are legitimate. If you see any suspicious charges, contact your credit card or bank and the retailer through which the order was placed to have the charges removed and, of course, change your sign-in information on any compromised account.
5. Use Anti-Virus Software
Install anti-virus or anti-malware software from a reputable company. Note: After it’s installed, run a full scan of your computer. Need help? Visit a Best Buy store near you or call Geek Squad at 1-800-433-5778.
6. Be on the Lookout for Phishing and Smishing Scams
Attempts at obtaining personal information from consumers for use in committing fraud are on the rise worldwide. Individuals trick consumers into revealing personal information by posing as legitimate businesses. Best Buy is the target of many of these scams today and consumers are receiving e-mails and texts containing these fraudulent offers. Consumers can protect themselves from these schemes by being on the lookout and knowing when to disregard this type of activity.
Types of scams
Gift Card Scams
A website advertisement, e-mail or text message that offers a high-value gift card.
How the scam works: The scam directs consumers to a website that requires them to make purchases, provide personal information, and/or fulfill other conditions in order to receive the gift card. Once the conditions are met, the consumer may never receive the gift card or may have spent more than the value of the gift card.
A valid-looking e-mail, website or other online message that directs consumers to a
legitimate-appearing website that requests account information and/or other confidential information.
Phishing messages often indicate that a consumer’s account has been frozen or jeopardized and that
the consumer must provide immediate information.
How the scam works: Once confidential information is obtained, identity theft and other forms of theft can occur.
Similar to a Phishing scam, but in this situation, consumers receive a text in order to carry out the scam.
Note: A gift card offer may also be the subject of Phishing and Smishing messages.
How to Protect Yourself
• Don’t respond to e-mails, text messages or online ads offering free gift cards unless you are expecting this communication from a company
• Make sure the website address and branding match up with the company referenced in the offer
• Do not pay for services or products with iTunes gift cards
• Contact organizations only through trusted channels
