Privacy Policy

TSA Watch endeavors to respect everyone’s privacy.  

After all, it’s protecting our 4th Amendment Rights that we are working together to for in the first place!

Still, every website must have an official Privacy Policy.  For the moment, we are modeling on other charities, but will edit this when we have time.  In short, when you register with our site and post communications here, they become part of our data base, comments, forums and so on.  We want you to communicate, and are doing all we know how to do to respect your information privacy and prevent hackers.  Given that, please review the following for our offical Privacy Policy.
