How BBB May Use Personal Information

By completing a complaint form or sending us a request or inquiry, you are allowing us to forward your information to the proper business and also to the proper BBB, if necessary. Consumer inquiries may be forwarded by email, and consumers should recognize that this method of transmission may not be secure.

  • Where our records indicate a company may be engaged in fraudulent activity or other deceptive practices that a governmental agency should be made aware of;

  • To appropriate governmental authorities, where warranted by a business's failure to participate in BBB's advertising self-regulatory process; or

  • To appropriate persons, where your communication suggests possible harm to others.
