    strange pop up from IB

    Internet brands that owns this forum/website just sent me a notice via a pop up that it had changed its privacy policy!

    Did anyone else get this?

    did you read the new policy?

    i saw the pop up but by the time i noticed it in the bottom corner, i had already gone to another page. then i couldn't get it back. thanks for satisfying my curiosity. oddly, i read the policy a few days ago. i just went there and i like the new look much better.

    Well, its purpose was to inform you of your privacy rights, so I don't think it's something I'd want to avoid. In general, I have popups blocked, but this one is different. Thank you for the link.

    Unhappy information from us? internet brands,inc.

    Quilting board members.
    I got this pop up saying to look at new Privacy information as they took over on June 12,2012.
    They can use our information, namem address, etc. plus ss#, credit cards plus.
    It does not sound right to me. Anyone one else get this, what do you think?

    I didn't see the part about credit card or other numbers. What I did notice is that they said this is a single policy to cover all their websites and not everything applies to every website. However, this company does own a number of websites and didn't the policy say it would share information only within its own companies? I read that and clicked to see what companies they own, then couldn't get back to the policy. If I start receiving mail from random companies such as ben's bargains, or fitworld, then I'll know where they originated.

    I got the pop up also today- it said that it has been updated - There is no remarks about using your Credit Card #s- here is a link to the Privacy Statement if you want to review it again :

    http://www.internetbrands.com/privac...ighlights.html

    You misread that - they will ask for your payment information if you are purchasing something from one of the Internet Brands web sites- that is the only reason


    And actually Internet Brands took over the site last year and they own many boards
