Identifiable Use

Is data used in a way that is personally identifiable — including linking it with identifiable information about you from other sources? Examples: (full_name), but also other data, such as (zip_code, salary, birth_date), and even IP number.

0 No

1 Yes

Recipients (Domain of Use)

This defines an organizational area, or domain, beyond the service provider and its agents where data may be distributed.

0. Only ourselves and our agents

Ourselves and our agents. We define an agent as a third party that processes data only on behalf of the service provider for the completion of the stated purposes. (e.g., a printing bureau that prints address labels and does nothing further with the information.)

1. Organizations following our practices

Organizations who use the data on their own behalf under equable practices. (e.g. data is shared with a partner who offers complementary products or accessories, but since they do not retain the data they consequently cannot provide access to it.)

2. Organizations following different practices

Organizations that are constrained by and accountable to the original service provider, but may use the data in a way not specified in the service provider’s practices. (e.g. data is shared with a partner who may also use data for research and development.)

3. Unrelated third parties or public fora

Organizations or fora whose data usage practices are not known by the original service provider. (e.g. data is provided as part of a commercial CD-ROM directory, or it is posted on a public on-line Web directory.)
