Our privacy policy

Protecting your privacy is important to us, and we work to keep your personal information confidential at all times. Please read our privacy policy so you know how we protect your personal information.

How we collect information

We collect information online and offline in several ways. For instance, we might gather your contact information when you write us with questions about fraud, or order our research studies or consumer brochures.

If you subscribe to any Coalition online newsletters or information services, we gather and store information such as your name, address and e-mail address so we can promptly send you these anti-fraud materials. Reporters are invited to submit contact information so we can send them news releases and other news material.

Credit card information sent online is not stored by or provided to the Coalition Against Insurance Fraud. Payment is made through secure servers and handled exclusively by a banking entity hired by us.

We also collect anonymous information about visitors to our website so we can learn how useful each section of our website is to visitors. This helps us continually improve our website so it better serves visitors such as you. We only review this data in the aggregate, however, and never review data on individual visitors. Nor do we share individual data with outside organizations.

We may use cookies. These are small amounts of data sent to your browser by a Web server, and are stored on your hard drive to identify you and your usage patterns.

We don't use tools allowing third parties to perform "reverse searches" to identify individuals from e-mail addresses.

What we do with your information

We don't sell, rent or trade your personal information with any outside party, or share your e-mail addresses with outside organizations.

We use an outside shipping company to ship orders. This company can use personally identifiable information only for shipping.

At times we may be required by law or legal process to share your personal information.

Opting Out

If you change your mind about receiving subscriptions to our newsletters or other material, you can remove your name from our database at any time. Simply e-mail us.


Our website contains links to other websites. We don't provide your personal information to the sponsoring organizations, and aren't responsible for their privacy practices or content. We suggest you familiarize yourself with their privacy policies.


All of our employees are fully aware of our privacy policy, and are promptly informed of any updates. The servers on which we store personally identifiable information also are kept in a secure environment.


We'll promptly post changes in this privacy policy on our homepage.
