If you have created an account on the Copyright Website, then you may have noticed that we collect three levels of personal information:

  • Log In Information
  • Personal Information
  • Copyright Application Information
Privacy

Log In
Information

In order to uniquely identify you, Log In Information requires two pieces of data:

  • email address
  • password

The email address is used as your unique identifier and Log In name. It is used in conjunction with your password to give you access to your account. Your email address is used to send you your password in the event that you have forgotten it. If you have chosen to Opt-In, your email address will also be used to send you relevant information from the Copyright Website.

Personal
Information

Personal Information requires data about your real name, address and contact information. Personal Information is not required to open an account.

Personal Information is only required if you wish to use the Copyright Registration Services. This information is required by the United States Copyright Office to process your Copyright Registration Application.

Copyright
Application
Information

If you use the Copyright Registration Services via the Copyright Wizard, then you will in due course provide information about your copyright registration.

Use of
Personal
Information

In the highly unlikely event that we determine that it is advantageous to our users, we may share information and summary or aggregate statistical information and data with third parties. If such information includes your email address, you may receive email directly from such third parties. You may decline to receive such additional email when you Log-In to your account. From the Account Console, simply click Profile to edit your account; change your selection from Opt-In to Opt-Out, and then click Next.

Email

If you use the Copyright Wizard for copyright registration services, we may contact you by email throughout the registration process. If we are unable to reach you by email, we may try to contact you by phone.

In addition, if you have chosen to Opt-In, we may occasionally send useful information to you by email, including new products and services offered by us or other organizations. You may decline to receive any additional email concerning new products and services when you Log-In to your account. From the Account Console, simply click Profile to edit your account, change your selection from Opt-In to Opt-Out, and then click Next.
