Definitions Edit

Consumer information Edit

Nonpublic information is

information derived from proprietary sources. For example, consumers may provide the information directly to businesses through loyalty card programs at grocery or retail stores, website registrations, warranty registrations, contests, surveys and questionnaires, and purchase histories. Resellers (or a third party such as a website operator acting on behalf of the reseller) also may collect nonpublic information about consumers' online locations and actions, including a computer's Internet protocol address, the browser used, activities during a consumer's visit to a website (such as search terms or purchases), and activities conducted on other websites.[1]

General Edit
