Use of Cookies and Log Files

Information Sharing

CfPA does not share, rent or sell customer email addresses. We may share other contact information with other professional organizations to promote similar products and services. No list supplied by CfPA may be used by anyone other than for the confidential use of the original mailer. All lists are seeded with decoy names to protect against abuse; violators will be prosecuted.


CfPA takes precautions to protect your information. When users submit sensitive information (such as a credit card number) over the internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. Access to information is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. The servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment. You should also recognize that your use of the Internet and this site is solely at your own risk.
