Like you, we at CopsAlive.com are concerned about your privacy. When you choose to provide us with information about yourself, we recognize that you trust us to act in a responsible manner. We understand that you have confidential information that you want to protect and maintain as confidential. We want you to know that CopsAlive.com is committed to safeguarding your privacy online and we strive to make our web site as safe and secure as reasonably possible.
Your right to privacy is very important to us. If you have any questions after reading this policy, please let us know.
The Information We Obtain and How We Use It
The information we obtain from you is generally necessary for us to provide you with answers to your questions, and that we may contact you if additional information is discovered by us that we feel, in good faith, will provide you with beneficial information.
All information collected from you is considered by CopsAlive.com as your property. This information will be used by CopsAlive.com or its agents only for the purposes that it is provided for and will not be shared with other parties without your approval. We treat information we collect online similarly to that we collect off-line. We do not sell or disclose client information to other entities except as described below.
Disclosure of Information
As a general rule, CopsAlive.com does not release information to unaffiliated third parties without your permission, unless we have a business relationship with those companies where the disclosure is appropriate.
There are exceptions to the general rule. For example, we might provide information to regulatory or administrative agencies so that they can accomplish their regulatory tasks or to maximize the efficiencies of our own processes (such as getting mailing addresses correct, for example). Other disclosures will be driven by legal requirements imposed on CopsAlive.com. CopsAlive.com complies with “legal process,” such as a subpoena or court order or other similar demand, associated with either criminal or civil proceedings.
If you tell us in writing to release your information to someone, we will honor your request and provide that information.
Your information is released to other carriers when you give us your permission or when they advise us they have your approval to access the information. Unless we are advised that permission from you has been granted, we do not release the information.
It may on occasion be necessary for CopsAlive.com employees or agents working on behalf of CopsAlive.com to have access to your profile or data to provide you with support or to perform certain maintenance tasks. This access happens on an as-needed basis only. CopsAlive.com requires employees and agents to keep client information confidential, and we hold them accountable for their actions.
If you have questions about the privacy policies of these other companies or the privacy policies of other sites, we encourage you to contact them directly.
Privacy and Security Over the Internet in General
Whenever you voluntarily disclose personal or company information online – for example, on message boards, through email, or in chat areas – that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal or company information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties.
