We collect personally identifiable information when You provide it to us through Your use of the Site and through completing an Agreement with dot818 (“Agreement(s)”). Additionally, the Site may collect personally identifiable information when You register with us through our Site, when You complete a form or survey connected to our Site, and through Your usage of our Site. The types of personally identifiable information we collect may include, but is not limited to: (a) full name; (b); physical mailing address; (c) daytime, evening, and mobile telephone number; (d) Social Security Number; (e) email address; (f) date of birth; (g) driver’s license number and state; (h) gender; (i) marital status; (j) occupation; (k) employment information; (l) salary information; (m) credit card information and ID verification information; and (n) citizenship status.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

Non-personally identifiable information is anonymous information that cannot be associated with a specific individual. The types of non-personally identifiable information that we collect (either directly, through the use of “cookies,” or through the use of a third party tracking system) may include, but is not limited to: (a) the IP address of the computer making the request; (b) Your browser type and language; (c) access times; (d) information about areas of the Site visited by Users of the Site; (e) information about the links that Users may select to visit on the Site; (f) the type of browser You are using (i.e. Internet Explorer, Firefox); and (g) the type of operating system You have (i.e. Mac OS). IP addresses are not usually associated with Your personal computer, but with a portal through which You accessed the Internet. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. A “cookie” is a piece of information a web site sends to Your computer while You are viewing the web site to remember who You are without personally identifying You.

Dot818 may share non-personally identifiable information to improve the design and content of our Site, to allow us to personalize Your experience online, and for the purpose of Site statistical and trend analysis. This information is not linked to any personally identifiable information that can identify an individual person.

Information Collected by Third Parties

We may allow third parties, including advertising partners and payday loan lenders, to display advertisements on our Site. These companies may use tracking technologies, including cookies, to collect information about Users of our Site who view or interact with these advertisements. Dot818 does not provide personally identifiable information to these third parties. However, these parties may contact You via email to follow-up or offer You additional services.

We may supplement the information we collect online with outside records to enhance our ability to serve You, to tailor our content to You and to offer You opportunities to purchase services or products we have reason to believe may be of interest to You.

Disclosing Your Information

We may share Your personally identifiable information (not including Your financial account information and social security number) with unaffiliated third party marketers and list managers with whom we have a business relationship. Any third parties with whom we share personally-identifiable information may have their own policies which describe how they use and disclose Your information. Those policies will govern the use, handling, and disclosure of Your information once we have transferred or shared it with those third parties as described in this Policy or our Terms of Use.

Dot818 will not sell or share Your personal information; however, we may disclose the information we collect about You: (a) to third party vendors to carry out services performed for dot818; (b) in the event dot818 is sold to another entity, as an asset, Your personal information may be disclosed; (c) in response to a subpoena or similar investigative demand, a court order, or a request for cooperation from a law enforcement agency or other government agency; (d) to establish or exercise our legal rights; (e) to defend against legal claims; (f) as necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activity, suspected fraud or other wrongdoing; (g) to protect and defend the rights, property, or safety of our company, our employees, our Site Users, or others; (h) to enforce our website terms and conditions or other agreements or policies; and (i) as otherwise required by law.

Links to Third Party Web Sites

We may provide links or automatically redirect You to third party web sites that do not operate under this Policy. Dot818 is not responsible for the activities and practices that take place on these sites. We recommend that you review the privacy statements and terms of use of all third party web sites You access. These third party web sites may independently solicit and collect information from You. On occasion, those third party web sites may provide us with information about Your use of those sites.


We have put in place physical, procedural, and technological security measures to help prevent unauthorized access to and improper use of the information we collect online. For example, only authorized employees and authorized third parties are permitted to access personally-identifiable information, and they may do so only for permitted business functions. No web site or Internet network can be completely secure. While dot818 takes reasonable security precautions to secure the personal information that You provide to us against loss, misuse alteration or unauthorized access, we do not guarantee, and You should not expect, that Your personal information, searches, or other communications will be fully secure. Any transmission of personal information is done at your own risk.

No Information Collected From Children

Our Site is not intended for use by children under the age of eighteen (18). We will never knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of eighteen (18). Because dot818 does not collect information on children under the age of eighteen (18), we do not have such information to use or disclose to third parties.
