The Scout Report hasn't paid a visit to the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse (PRC) website in a few years, but it was good to learn that they are still providing high-quality materials about the subject directly from their site. Created in 1992, the PRC has maintained this site for well over a decade, and visitors will enjoy looking over some of their fact sheets, reports, and their online chronology of data breaches. On their homepage, visitors can browse a list of topical headings that might be of interest. Some of these topics include direct marketing, financial privacy, medical privacy, and external links that expand on these topics. Within each of these topical sections, visitors can view fact sheets that are both well-written and very pragmatic. Visitors can also browse through the first-hand experiences of consumers who have lobbied effectively to protect their own privacy, and also look over a set of relevant blogs on the subject. Additionally, it is worth noting that many of the fact sheets offered here are available in Spanish.
