The Privacy Rights Clearinghouse is a nonprofit consumer education and advocacy program based in San Diego, California. Its web site offers consumers a wealth of guidance on how to protect their personal privacy. The PRC’s web site is http://www.privacyrights.org and its telephone hotline is (619) 298-3396.

A grant-funded project has enabled the PRC to update its “Páginas Informativas” on identity theft, Internet privacy, telemarketing, wireless phones, and other vital topics that impact Latinos.

These topics and more are covered in the PRC’s fact sheets, now updated and translated into Spanish:

–What steps must identity theft victims take to regain their financial health?

–How can I stop the harassing phone calls I’m receiving?

–How can I keep my Social Security number safe?

–How can I shop online safely?

–What do I need to know to protect my privacy and avoid fraud on my wireless phone?

This project is funded by the Community Collaborative Fund administered by the California Consumer Protection Foundation (CCPF). The goal of this grant program is to increase telecommunications and Internet access to under-served communities in California.
