To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our home page and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.

This notice applies to all information collected from or submitted to the following CIAdata("CIA") web sites, but to make this notice easier to read we will use the term "our Web Site", which means

Your consent

By using our Web site, you consent to the collection and use of the information you provide according to this Privacy Policy. We reserve the right to change our Privacy Policy from time to time. If this policy is changed, we will post these changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.


This Web site may containlinks to other sites. Please be aware that CIAdata is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information.

Application of This Notice

This Notice applies only to the information collected by CIAdata from the users of our Web Site. It does not apply to information collected by CIAdata in any other way, including offline.

The Information We Collect

Our Web Site is not set up to automatically collect personally identifiable information from each visitor to our Web Site. It does recognize the home server of visitors, but not e-mail addresses. For example, we can tell which Internet Service Provider our visitors use, but not the names, addresses or other information about our visitors that would allow us to identify the particular visitors to our Web Site. This information is used only for internal purposes by our technical support staff.

Our Web Site does track certain information about the visits to our Web Site. For example, we compile statistics that show the numbers and frequency of visitors to our Web Site and its individual pages. These aggregated statistics are used internally to improve our Web Site, as well as for product development and marketing purposes generally. Those aggregated statistics may also be provided to advertisers and other third parties, but again, the statistics contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information.

In a few areas on our Web Site, we ask you to provide information that will enable us to verify whether you are entitled to access and use certain information, materials and services available from our Web Site, or to enable us to enhance your site visit, to assist you with customer service or technical support issues, or to follow up with you after your visit, or to otherwise support your customer relationship with CIAdata. It is completely optional for you to participate. However, failure to participate may mean that you cannot access and use certain information, materials and services.

For example, we request information from you when you:

  • Place an order
  • Participate in a sweepstakes or other promotional offer
  • Provide feedback in an online survey.

In each of the instances above, we typically ask for your name, e-mail address, phone number, address, business information, credit card information, billing address CIAdata ID number and password, as well as other similar personal information that is needed to register or subscribe you to services or offers. On occasion, we may ask for additional information to enable us to provide you with access to and use of certain information, materials and services. In the case of newsletters or mailing lists, you will be able to unsubscribe to these mailings at any time.

How We Use Information:

CIAdata only uses your personal information for specific purposes.

The personal information you provide to us when using our Web Site, such as your name, postal or e-mail address or telephone number will be kept confidential and used to support your customer relationship with CIAdata, and, only if you sign up for the CIAdata newsletter and/or CIAdata special offers email lists, to send you newsletters, to notify you of special offers, updated information, and new products and services from CIAdata, or offers from third parties that we think may be of interest to you.

Agents or contractors of CIAdata who are given access to your personal information will be required to keep the information confidential and not use it for any other purpose than to carry out the services they are performing for CIAdata.

CIAdata may enhance or merge your information collected at its Web Site with data from third parties for purposes of marketing products or services to you if you opt in to our special offers email list.

Circumstances may arise in which we are required to disclose your personal information to third parties for purposes other than to support your customer relationship with CIAdata, such as in connection with a corporate divestiture or dissolution where we sell all or a portion of our business or assets (including our associated customer lists containing your personal information), or if disclosure is required by law or is pertinent to judicial or governmental investigations or proceedings.

You can opt out of receiving further marketing from CIAdata at any time.

We will only send you information about our various products and services, or other products and services we feel may be of interest to you, if you opt in to the email lists CIAdata has set up for these purposes. Only CIAdata (or agents or contractors working on behalf of CIAdata and under confidentiality agreements) will send you these direct mailings.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Can CIAdata remove information about me from CIAdata Reports?
No. CIAdata does not maintain the databases used in our searches. Rather, we access separately maintained third party databases to collect information for the reports we provide. For this reason, CIAdata cannot change, modify, or remove information from these databases.

2. Does CIAdata use "cookies" or pixel "tags"?
Yes. CIAdata may use cookies to help provide you with a better experience on our site; however, we do not store personally identifying information in cookies. Cookies are bits of electronic information that a Web site can transfer to a visitor's hard drive to help tailor and keep records of his or her visits to the site. Cookies allow Web site operators to better customize visits to the site to your individual preferences. The use of cookies is standard on the Internet and many major Web sites use them.

Like many Web sites, CIAdata may also use pixel tags, also known as beacons, spotlight tags or web bugs, to improve our understanding of site traffic, visitor behavior, and response to promotional campaigns, as a supplement to our server logs and other methods of traffic and response measurement. We may also implement pixel tags provided by other companies, and limit the collection of information for the same purpose. We do not store personally identifying information in pixel tags.

3. What happens if there is a transfer of CIAdata's business?
As we continue to develop our business, we may acquire or divest businesses and/or assets, or be acquired ourselves. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets.
