Also, when an order is processed, we disclose your credit card information, as necessary, to verify your identity and process your payment, according to the terms and conditions by which each credit card or payment system operates, only to your bank or card issuer and our bank or payment processors.
In addition, we may use information collected and provided to us by the sites where we advertise to track the success of our marketing campaigns. This information is aggregated and therefore does not contain any of your personal information.
Report Alliance maintains strict technological and operational security measures to protect your personal information from unauthorized disclosure, use, alteration or destruction while in our possession. However, no
e-commerce solution, site, mobile application, database or system is completely secure, and we make no guarantee, express or implied, that we will prevent unauthorized access to your personal information. We seek to limit access to your personal information to those who have a need to know. Those individuals who have access to the data are required to maintain the confidentiality of such information. We also make efforts to retain personal information only as long as the information is needed for our professional, marketing or analytic purposes or to comply with your requests, or until you request the information to be deleted.
In addition, we regularly review sensitive and highly confidential financial information for our clients. All information submitted to us by you, whether verbal, written, through our site or in any other form, is protected by a general non-disclosure agreement, without exception. All Report Alliance staff are required to sign and adhere to this non-disclosure agreement as a condition of employment.

In an effort to track the success of our marketing campaigns, we use web beacons (electronic images that allow us to count users who have accessed particular content) and third-party analytics tools to help us understand how site visitors arrive at and use our site. We do not use this technology to access your personal information; it only allows us to improve the site quality, functionality and content for our visitors, and gauge the effectiveness of our ads. Moreover, these third-party sites are not authorized nor permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.
By navigating to our site, you agree that we can place cookies and web beacons on your computer or device and use our analytics tools.
