Privacy Principles

Updated: September 26, 2016

These Privacy Principles will be reviewed at least annually, updated as needed, and adopted by Neustar’s leadership, including the company’s Privacy, Security and Risk Council, and its Compliance Council.

Neustar uses data to help businesses serve their customers, deliver personalized content, and prevent fraud without sacrificing personal privacy.  These Privacy Principles govern our collection, use, storage, and disclosure of Personal Information.  You can learn more about Privacy at Neustar in the Neustar Privacy Policy.

  1. We will keep privacy in mind as we design, build, and deliver our products and services.
  2. We will “say what we do, and do what we say.”  That means we will clearly explain:
    1. What kinds of Personal Information we collect; 
    2. Why we are collecting Personal Information; and
    3. How we plan to use Personal Information.

    That also means we will use and disclose Personal Information in the manner and for the purposes described.

  3. When we interact directly with individuals, we will seek their consent to collect, use, and disclose Personal Information.  We will require third-party providers of Personal Information to do so as well. 
  4. We will only collect Personal Information that is relevant for the purposes we have explained.
  5. We will dispose of Personal Information when we no longer need it for the purposes we have explained.
