Capitolwire.com’s "Opt-In" Policy

Most web sites offer an "opt-out" policy, which requires that users click on a button or email the site asking that advertisements or offers not be sent to them. However, as a subscription service, we effectively have an "opt-in" policy. If you would like to receive the services offered by Capitolwire.com, you must opt-in by registering and requesting those services. You will not receive any solicitations or advertisements by either email or regular mail. If you register to become a member of Capitolwire.com and subscribe to services such as News Watch, you are opting to receive periodic email updates that keep you informed on topics of your choice without the hassle of surfing the web.

We give access to individually identifiable information about users only to those employees who require it to transact billing services or fulfill customer service requests.

Internet Information

We use Internet Protocol (" IP") addresses to analyze user trends, administer the site, and gather demographic data for aggregate use. IP addresses are linked or “mapped” to a subscriber’s User ID. However, this personal information is not released to the general public or to third parties.

Use of Cookies

We use cookies when subscribers login to their Capitolwire.com account with their User ID and password. These cookies allow us to remember a user who visits multiple pages in our site, so that the user does not need to re-enter their password repeatedly. When a subscriber closes their web browser, these cookies expire and no longer have any effect. Capitolwire.com also uses cookies to display a User ID each time you access the Capitolwire.com web site so that you do not have to retype your User ID when you start a new session. This is the only cookie that remains on the subscriber’s machine after they close their browser.
