Last Modified: January 24th,  2022

This Website Privacy Policy (“Website Privacy Policy”) governs your use of our website fraud.net and its subdomains (“Website”) as provided by Fraud.net Inc., a Delaware corporation, and its affiliates, successors, and/or assigns (“Fraud.net” or “we”). Visitors to our Website (“Visitors” or “you”) have access to information about Fraud.net, its products and services and other fraud-related information such as industry reports, blogs, and user guides.

This Website Privacy Policy tells you about the information we collect from you when you use Website. In collecting this information, we are acting as a data processor and, by law, we are required to provide you with information about us, about why and how we use your data, and about the rights, you have over your data.

Update: At Fraud.Net, we are committed to your privacy and support newly enacted GDPR, a most comprehensive privacy law replacing EU Data Protection laws. It goes into effect on May 25th, 2018, and Fraud.Net is committed to complying with its provisions and this update includes few of the required amendments to such expectations. 

This Website Privacy Policy does not describe our collection and use of information when we provide Services to our Members. Instead, the Services Privacy Policy describes our collection and use of information when we provide Services to our Members.
