I give you this free advice as a Computer and IT Tech and business owner:

Don't ever give out any info over the Internet---absolutely everyone wants your private info. It's called Data mining.

Here's some info sent to a guy on a ATV/ side by side forum:

There is no free lunch;)

Why $200 for the silly ATV crowd and only $150 for we bike riders????

I assure you it is a waste of time and the data is used for nefarious purposes.

We all know about our private info being used and/ or sold by who we consider to be legitimate well known companies like for instance: GOOGLE, AT&T, Microsoft etc.

Hillary Clinton, to my extreme joy is finding out how secure her Illegal classified emails and correspondence on her illegal off-site servers really are.

Miscrosoft's latest operating system, Windows 10, supplies your private data to anyone, for purposes unknown, unless one sets the security parameters against doing so during set up or after which is more difficult.

30% of all contacted currently by the so called Microsoft Technician that wants to be allowed to remotely access your computer to eliminate malware, actually allow it to happen and pay the +-$300 to have their computer cleaned. After the payment, nothing is done whatsoever but all of the customers data is mined and used for many purposes. In many instances, the machine is useless after the remote access.

The Windows 10 scam is the latest and greatest malware out there, offering the free win 10 upgrade and looks 99% like the offer came from Microsoft---but it didn't and again, people are falling for it, rendering their machines useless after the takeover. GOOGLE the Windows 10 scam just for fun!

I fix this stuff everyday, 10-12 hours a day, 6 days a week if need be, on site and remotely. Again, be aware of anyone wanting your personal info.

I went to your web-site right away Dorene and it looks legitimate. So does OBUMMER.;)
