Is the FCC aware that this site has no privacy policy?

This site, broadband.ideascale.com, is an official link from the FCC's broadband.gov site and has been announced as an official FCC website. However, it does not have any link to a privacy policy. Moreover, it is asking commenters and topic starters to include an email address or open an account. If the user supplies this personal information, it is not displayed on the main page, but part or all of it is accessible by RSS (in the case of comments) and it appears also to be availabe through the API. There is no warning that this will occur, which should be part of the privacy policy.

    I see that the FCC and/or Ideascale has now instituted a privacy policy and included a link to it at the bottom of the page. Thank you for your prompt response to the issue I raised.
