Control and Protect Your Privacy


You can control how your personal and financial information is used by companies who send you mail, e-mail, or call you on the phone. To safeguard against the misuse of information, you can reduce unsolicited sales pitches, control the number of credit offers you receive by mail, remove your name from mailing lists, and report unsolicited spam at the following:

National Do Not Call registry – Allows you to reduce the number of unsolicited telemarketing calls you receive.

Opt out of marketing lists – To discontinue receiving prescreened offers for credit or insurances from lists generated from credit reporting companies.

Direct Marketing Association’s Mail Preference Service – helps consumers decrease the amount of nationally generated commercial or nonprofit mail they receive at home.

Forward unsolicited spam to the Federal Trade Commission – Send a copy of unwanted or deceptive e-mail messages to the FTC. The e-mails you forward are reviewed and may be used to pursue law enforcement actions against people who send deceptive spam e-mail.
