How We Handle Outgoing E-mail Communication
Brandt Holdings Company will NEVER ask you to provide sensitive information through standard e-mail. We will never request sign-in passwords, credit card numbers, or other sensitive information for verification or any other reason. In addition, Brandt Holdings Company will not without your prior notification or approval, send you e-mail that includes attachments and you will not be required to enter information on a page that cannot be accessed from this (www.brandtholdings.com) or affiliated sites. If you receive a message that appears to have been sent from Brandt Holdings Company that includes an attachment, do not open it. You should also avoid clicking links. Instead of clicking the link, you should copy the address and paste it into the Address/Location area of your web browser. While Brandt Holdings Company may send e-mail that contains links, the links are provided for convenience only and will always be accessible from our main or affiliated sites.
If you have received e-mail requesting that you sign in, provide personal information, download or open an attachment that you suspect was not sent by Brandt Holdings Company, please do not answer it, but contact us immediatley at (701) 237-6000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
