Information we collect and how we use it:

We offer a number of services that do not require you to register for an account or provide any personal information to us, such as Clean Internet Search. In order to provide our full range of services, we may collect the following types of information:

  • Information you provide – When you sign up for a Clean Internet Account or other Clean Internet service or promotion that requires registration, we ask you for personal information, such as your name, email address and an account password, credit card or other payment account information which we maintain in encrypted form on secure servers. We do not combine the information you submit under your account with information from third parties.
  • Clean Internet cookies – When you visit Clean Internet, we send one or more cookies – a small file containing a string of characters – to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. We use cookies to improve the quality of our service by storing user preferences such as your zip code for the weather. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some Clean Internet features and services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled.
  • Log information – When you use Clean Internet services, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.
  • Apps installed – Reports of Internet activity and apps installed are sent to Clean Internet to be reviewed by you at your convenience.
    This information is secured and not used for advertising or any reason other than allowing you to see the Internet related activity on your devices.

  • User communications – When you send email or other communication to Clean Internet, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our services.
  • Affiliated sites – We offer some of our services in connection with other web sites. Personal information that you provide to those sites may be sent to Clean Internet in order to deliver the service. We process such information in accordance with this Policy. The affiliated sites may have different privacy practices and we encourage you to read their privacy policies.
  • Links – Clean Internet may present links in a format that enables us to keep track of whether these links have been followed. We use this information to improve the quality of our search technology, customized content and advertising.
  • Other sites – This Privacy Policy applies to web sites and services that are owned and operated by Clean Internet. We do not exercise control over the sites displayed as search results or links from within our various services. These other sites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you.

Clean Internet only processes personal information for the purposes described in the applicable Privacy Policy and/or privacy notice for specific services. In addition to the above, such purposes include:

  • Providing our products and services to users, including the display of customized content and advertising;
  • Auditing, research and analysis in order to maintain, protect and improve our services;
  • Ensuring the technical functioning of our network; and
  • Developing new services.

Clean Internet processes all personal information on our servers in the United States of America.

Choices for personal information

When you sign up, we ask you to provide personal information. If we use this information in a manner different than the purpose for which it was collected, then we will ask for your consent prior to such use.

If we propose to use personal information for any purposes other than those described in this Policy and/or in the specific service notices, we will offer you an effective way to opt out of the use of personal information for those other purposes. We will not collect or use sensitive information for purposes other than those described in this Policy and/or in the specific service notices, unless we have obtained your prior consent.

You can decline to submit personal information to any of our services, in which case Clean Internet may not be able to provide those services to you.

Information sharing

Clean Internet does not share personal information with other companies or individuals outside of Clean Internet.

  • We have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request, (b) enforce applicableTerms of Service, including investigation of potential violations thereof, (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, or (d) protect against imminent harm to the rights, property or safety of Clean Internet, its users or the public as required or permitted by law.

If Clean Internet becomes involved in a merger, acquisition, or any form of sale of some or all of its assets, we will provide notice before personal information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.
We may share with third parties certain pieces of aggregated, non-personal information, such as the number of users, for example, or how many users clicked on a particular advertisement. Such information does not identify you individually.

Please contact us at the address below for any additional questions about the management or use of personal data.

Information security

We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data.

We restrict access to personal information to Clean Internet employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.

Data integrity

Clean Internet processes personal information only for the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with this Policy or any applicable service-specific privacy notice. We review our data collection, storage and processing practices to ensure that we only collect, store and process the personal information needed to provide or improve our services. We take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we process is accurate, complete, and current, but we depend on our users to update or correct their personal information whenever necessary.

Accessing and updating personal information

When you use Clean Internet services, we make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your personal information and either to correct this data if it is inaccurate or to delete such data at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes. We ask individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes), or for which access is not otherwise required. In any case where we provide information access and correction, we perform this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort.

Enforcement

Clean Internet regularly reviews its compliance with this Policy. Please feel free to direct any questions or concerns regarding this Policy or Clean Internet’s treatment of personal information by contacting us through our website or write to us at Privacy Matters, c/o Clean Internet Inc., PO Box 964, Chesterton, Indiana 46304, United States. When we receive formal written complaints at this address, it is Clean Internet’s policy to contact the complaining user regarding his or her concerns. We will cooperate with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of personal data that cannot be resolved between Clean Internet and an individual.

Changes to this policy

Please note that this Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will not reduce your rights under this Policy without your explicit consent, and we expect most such changes will be minor. Regardless, we will post any Policy changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice (including email notification of Policy changes). Each version of this Policy will be identified at the top of the page by its effective date.

If you have any additional questions or concerns about this Policy, please feel free to contact us any time through this web site or at Privacy Matters, c/o Clean Internet Inc., PO Box 964, Chesterton, Indiana 46304, United States.

“Thanks for your call this morning. Setup was a breeze. My connection was so slow with the other filter, but now I am up and flying again and the filter really works this time.”

Curtis Sanders

“My wife and I would like to thank you for providing a filter that blocks the filth but still allows her to do the research she needs for nursing. What a true blessing it is to have a Clean Internet! Thanks again!”

Rob & Terri Snyder

“I sure appreciate how this filter works. I had been using bsafeonline, but that can be uninstalled in seconds. What good is a filter if it can be uninstalled or turned off so easy?”

Ron G.

“Yes the setup was easy, and thank you very much for providing this much needed service. It will be so much easier to web surf without worrying about pulling up garbage. Thanks again!”

Bill Center

“Yes, both Firefox and Internet Explorer are filtered. Now we can feel safer knowing that we won’t accidentally encounter pornography on the web. Thank you for your efforts in serving our Lord.”

Robert Simpson

“I have tested many internet filters and found them lacking. Most don’t block worth a hill of beans and the one that did was so slow and hard to get things unblocked it was worthless. I tried all day to disable your filter but couldn’t. I don’t know how you guys have done it or why the other can’t but I thank God for you.”
