QRZ.COM's Privacy Policy

QRZ, is deeply committed to protecting the privacy of Internet users. Below is information outlining our continued support for the responsible management of consumer information. We welcome all users to our site and want to insure that you are comfortable. We pledge that as we gather and use information about you, we do so responsibly.

Consumer Information

QRZ.COM publishes information on the World Wide Web and on CDROM that is obtained from open, public domain sources and in some cases directly and voluntarily from users themselves. The information may include but is not limited to, your name, your address, your email address and possibly other data that you may voluntarily provide.

This information is generally used by members of the amateur radio community for the purposes of contacting each other through both internet and traditional means. Our site is also used as a means by which to share common interest information as it applies to the worldwide community of amateur radio operators.

Amateur radio address and contact information is and has been published in the public domain for a great many years. Before the advent of the Internet and the World Wide Web, the same types of information that we now provide was routinely published in printed directories (Callbooks). These directories are of a paramount interest to those involved in this particular hobby, especially as it applies to the exchange of written communications that result from contacts made on the air.

Data Collection and Opt Out

Participation in the QRZ data collection process is voluntary except for the occasional use of browser "cookies".

QRZ, as well as most sites on the Internet, occasionaly may use "cookies" to enhance your experience on the web. QRZ does not and cannot use these cookies to personally identify you in any way.

What are cookies and why do we use them?

Our cookies consist of a unique random number that our system generates and hands back to your browser. As you move from page to page within the QRZ site, we are able to verify your login identity without asking you to re-submit your password each time. This is done so that only you may update your callsign information, your biography or your photo, and, so that only you may post new messages in your name.

The cookie that QRZ assigns does not contain any personal information whatsoever.

Cookies are only required by QRZ if you intend to update information relating to callsigns, or, if you intend to post articles or want ads on our site. To participate as a reader and/or observer only, cookies are not required.

Opt Out Procedure

If you would like to "opt out," that is, to prevent any non-FCC data from being displayed by QRZ about you, please notify us by email. Please contact us at The QRZ Support Center and simply state your amateur radio CALLSIGN and that you would like your information removed from QRZ.

Please be aware that with the exception of your street address that information that is published by the FCC in the public domain will continue to be displayed by QRZ even after you opt out. 'Opting Out' affects only that data that the FCC does not provide. Non-FCC data includes your birth date, your biography, your picture, your email address, and your home page address.

Note that street address de-listing by QRZ will not change the FCC's records in any way. Your information will still be available to anyone who wants it at the FCC's official website. Your information will also very likely continue to be available on other non-QRZ amateur radio websites and callsign servers.

If you have any additional questions about QRZ's dedication to consumer privacy, please contact us at The QRZ Support Center
