Protecting Your Information and Your Finances
Seeking out and reading the privacy policies for online sellers is critical to protect your own identity and your financial safety. Far too many online sellers abuse the trusting indifference of consumers.
Here are some important tips for you as you shop online:
- Some sellers have either inadequate information in their privacy policies or they have no policy at all.
- It is important to avoid providing more information than is necessary for the purchase. Giving too much information just opens you up to possible privacy violations.
Although local, state and national laws are beginning to clamp down on violations by online sellers, there is still significant danger for consumers. It is critical to watch for privacy policies and protect your personal information.
