To help you understand how information submitted will be treated when you log on to and use our web site, HumaneWatch.org, we offer this Privacy Policy. Use of any of the Center for Consumer Freedom’s websites, and disclosure to us of your personal information, is optional and voluntary.

The Center for Consumer Freedom’s Privacy Policy may change from time to time without notice to you. You should read this Privacy Policy each time you plan to submit personal information so that you understand how the information you are submitting will be used.

We use a third-party vendor to manage subscriptions to our electronic newsletters. Our policy is to only e-mail parties that have voluntarily subscribed to our materials. If someone has been mistakenly e-mailed, our intention is to provide easy “unsubscribe” links and procedures. If for some reason these links and/or systems are not working correctly, users may e-mail [email protected] to be manually removed from any e-mail lists.

On occasion, we may have “chat” areas and other forums where users may participate. We also provide users the ability to e-mail articles and other content using our mail servers. Information and communications posted to these areas, together with any electronic mail or other communications you transmit or post to this site, will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary.

If you transmit or post anything to this site, you will be granting an exclusive license to us or our affiliates to use such materials for any purpose, including but not limited to reproduction, disclosure, transmission, publication, broadcast, and posting.

We take no responsibility for the content of any information or communications posted to these areas by third parties.

We may collect IP addresses for purposes of system administration, to collect information and to audit the use of our site. An “IP address” is a set of numbers automatically assigned to your computer whenever you log into your Internet service provider, or use your company’s LAN or WAN.

We can and will use IP addresses to identify users of our site when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with these terms, or to protect our service, our site, or other users.

In order to offer and provide personalized custom services, the ConsumerFreedom.com sites may use “cookies” to limit the number of times a particular advertisement for content is shown to a user as the user navigates through the site. A cookie is a small data file that certain websites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A file may contain information such as a user ID that the site uses to track the pages you have visited and to allow easy access to restricted areas of the website. The only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply voluntarily. A cookie cannot read data off your hard disk, read cookies created by other sites, or damage your files.

If you have set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies, you will receive the warning message with each cookie. You also may refuse cookies by disabling them on your browser. You do not need to have cookies turned on to use our sites.
