The privacy of our visitors to ConsumerFraudReporting.org is important to us. At ConsumerFraudReporting.org, we recognize that privacy of your personal information is important to you, too! Here is information on what types of personal information we receive and collect when you use and visit ConsumerFraudReporting.org, and how we safeguard your information. We never sell or release your personal information to third parties.
We never collect credit card, social security numbers, driver's license numbers, bank account information, nor any other personal identifying information. You should not provide this to anyone on the internet unless you have a trusted relationship with them AND security procedures are followed (such as https at the beginning of the url).
If you write to us, the only information we ask for is a means to contact you if we have questions (name and email address, general location, such as country and state or province).
As with almost every other website, our servers collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL or Shaw Cable), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site. (It doesn't identify you - just the to the level of your service provider - again , this is common to all websites)
We also use third party advertisements to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).
You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13.
