Protect Your Identity with Promotional Products

As our society becomes more and more technologically advanced, so do the techniques of criminals who seek to steal our identities and defraud us. Radio-frequency identification (RFID) uses radio waves to wirelessly transmit data. While RFID technology can be used for good, it can also be used to collect private information without your permission.
