Effective May 01, 2006
Intelius respects your right to privacy and we are committed to protecting
it. This statement discloses the information practices for Intelius Web
sites, including what type of information we gather and track, how we use
the information, and with whom we share the information.
In general, you can visit Intelius on the Internet without telling us who
you are and without giving any personal information about yourself. However,
you may choose to give us personal information in a variety of situations.
For example, you may want to give us information such as your name and
address or e-mail ID so we may correspond with you, process an order, or
provide you with a subscription or service. You may give us your credit card
details to buy a product or service from us, or provide us a description of
your education and work experience in connection with a job opening at
Intelius for which you wish to be considered. The purpose of this privacy
policy is to inform you of how Intelius will use your information, before
you provide it. If you tell us that you do not want us to use this
information to make further contact with you beyond fulfilling your
requests, we will respect your wishes. If you give us personal information
about somebody else, such as a spouse or associate, we will assume that you
have their permission to do so.
Using and Sharing Personal Information
The following paragraphs describe in more detail how Intelius may use the
personal information you provide to us and with whom we may share it.
Depending on the type of Intelius Web site you are visiting, one or more of
the following paragraphs may apply. For example, if you order a product from
an Intelius Web site, your information will be handled as described in the
paragraphs below entitled "Fulfilling Your Transaction Request" and
Fulfilling your Transaction Request
If you request something from an Intelius Web site, for example, a product
or service, a callback, or specific marketing materials, we will use the
information you provide to fulfill your request. To help us do this, we may
share information with others, for instance, our affiliates, Intelius
Business Partners, financial institutions, or postal or government
authorities may participate in fulfilling your request.
The information you provide to Intelius on certain Intelius Web sites may
also be used, with your permission, by Intelius and selected third parties
for marketing purposes. Before we use it, we will offer you the opportunity
to choose whether or not to have your information used for this purpose.
Intelius Human Resources Web Sites
In connection with a job application or inquiry, whether advertised on an
Intelius Web site or otherwise, you may provide us with information about
yourself, such as a resume or curriculum vitae. We may use this information
throughout Intelius and its affiliates for the purpose of employment
consideration or your inquiry. Unless you request that we don't, we may keep
the information for future consideration.
Information for Business Partners
If you represent an Intelius Business Partner, you may visit an Intelius Web
site intended specifically for Intelius Business Partners. We may use
information you provide on that site to administer and develop our business
relationship with you, the Business Partner you represent, and Intelius
Business Partners generally. For instance, we may use your information to
send you details of Intelius Business Partner programs. We may share certain
information with other Business Partners (subject to any confidentiality
obligations that may exist), or Intelius customers or prospects. In
connection with a particular transaction or program, we also may contact you
as part of a satisfaction survey or for market research purposes.
Other Intelius Web Site Notices
In some cases, specific Intelius Web sites may contain other notices about
their use and the information practices applicable to those sites. You
should carefully review any such notices before providing any personal
information or purchasing any product or service.
We intend to protect your personal information and to maintain its quality.
We implement appropriate measures and processes, such as using encryption
when transmitting certain sensitive information, to help us keep your
information secure and maintain its quality.
Cookies, and Other Web Technologies
We sometimes collect non-identifiable information from visits to our Web
sites to help us provide better customer service. For example, we keep track
of the domains from which people visit, and we also measure visitor activity
on Intelius Web sites, but we do so in ways that keep our visitors'
identities anonymous. Intelius may use this data to analyze trends and
statistics and to help us provide better customer service.
We collect the information we mentioned in the previous paragraphs through
the use of various technologies, including one called "cookies". A cookie is
a piece of data that a Web site can send to your browser, which may then be
stored on your computer as an anonymous tag that identifies your computer
party vendors, or other technologies to better serve you when you return to
the Web site. You can set your browser to notify you before you receive a
cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it. You also can
set your browser to turn off cookies. If you do so, however, some Web sites
may not work properly.
Certain companies help us deliver interactive on-line advertising. These
companies may collect and use information about customers to help us better
understand the offers, promotions, and types of advertising that are most
appealing to our customers. After the information is collected, it is
aggregated so it is not identifiable to a specific individual.
Disclosures Required By Law
Please be aware that in certain circumstances, it is possible that personal
information may be subject to disclosure pursuant to judicial or other
government subpoenas, warrants, or orders.
