Protect Personal Information

Question

How does the FTC protect my personal information?

Answer

We use security measures to protect your personal information and to control access to it, including computer safeguards and monitoring, and secured files and buildings to control access. We use secure socket layer (SSL) encryption to protect the transmission of the information you give us when you use our secure online forms. Do not email the FTC sensitive information such as a Social Security or account number. Instead, contact us by using our secure online forms or by phone.
