What information is collected and how does CFA use it?
The server of CFA’s Internet Service Provider collects information on visitors to IDTheftInfo.org. In order to better understand our audience, our web host provides us with aggregate information on the number of hits the site receives, the domains from which the site is accessed, the top 20 organizations/ISPs that are used to connect to this site and the top 20 referrers (the last page you were on before you connected to this site). To gauge what our visitors are interested in, we also look at the top 20 search words used in connecting to this site.
We have the capability to calculate which files have been accessed, the types of files, the size of the files requested, the status of those files (i.e. 404 not found, etc.) and a breakdown of the operating systems used to access the site, but we do not track such information and have no plans to do so.
IDTheftInfo.org provides links to other websites that are not operated by CFA. When you click on the links and go to those sites, the information is collected and how it is used is governed by the privacy policies of those sites.
CFA does not sell, rent, share, or otherwise disclose information about visitors to IDTheftInfo.org. Server statistics collected in aggregate (and previously mentioned) are used to improve the content and navigability of the site.
CFA does not enable cookies or use other software or hardware techniques to collect information on visitors to IDTheftInfo.org.
