California Online Privacy Protection Act


CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require com­mer­cial web­sites and online ser­vices to post a pri­vacy pol­icy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require any per­son or com­pany in the United States (and con­ceiv­ably the world) that oper­ates web­sites col­lect­ing Personally Identifiable Information from California con­sumers to post a con­spic­u­ous pri­vacy pol­icy on its web­site stat­ing exactly the infor­ma­tion being col­lected and those indi­vid­u­als or com­pa­nies with whom it is being shared. — See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf
According to CalOPPA, we agree to the following:
Users can visit our site anonymously.
Once this pri­vacy pol­icy is cre­ated, we will add a link to it on our home page or as a min­i­mum, on the first sig­nif­i­cant page after enter­ing our website.
Our Privacy Policy link includes the word ‘Privacy’ and can eas­ily be found on the page spec­i­fied above.
You will be noti­fied of any Privacy Policy changes:

Can change your per­sonal information:

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)


When it comes to the col­lec­tion of per­sonal infor­ma­tion from chil­dren under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts par­ents in con­trol. The Federal Trade Commission, United States’ con­sumer pro­tec­tion agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what oper­a­tors of web­sites and online ser­vices must do to pro­tect children’s pri­vacy and safety online.

We do not specif­i­cally mar­ket to chil­dren under the age of 13 years old.


Fair Information Practices


The Fair Information Practices Principles form the back­bone of pri­vacy law in the United States and the con­cepts they include have played a sig­nif­i­cant role in the devel­op­ment of data pro­tec­tion laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be imple­mented is crit­i­cal to com­ply with the var­i­ous pri­vacy laws that pro­tect per­sonal information.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the fol­low­ing respon­sive action, should a data breach occur:
We will notify you via email
      Within 1 busi­ness day
We will notify the users via in-​site notification
      Within 1 busi­ness day
We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that indi­vid­u­als have the right to legally pur­sue enforce­able rights against data col­lec­tors and proces­sors who fail to adhere to the law. This prin­ci­ple requires not only that indi­vid­u­als have enforce­able rights against data users, but also that indi­vid­u­als have recourse to courts or gov­ern­ment agen­cies to inves­ti­gate and/​or pros­e­cute non-​compliance by data processors.


CAN SPAM Act


The CAN-​SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for com­mer­cial email, estab­lishes require­ments for com­mer­cial mes­sages, gives recip­i­ents the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penal­ties for violations.

We col­lect your email address in order to:
      Send infor­ma­tion, respond to inquiries, and/​or other requests or questions
      Market to our mail­ing list or con­tinue to send emails to our clients after the orig­i­nal trans­ac­tion has occurred.
To be in accor­dance with CANSPAM, we agree to the following:
      Not use false or mis­lead­ing sub­jects or email addresses.
      Identify the mes­sage as an adver­tise­ment in some rea­son­able way.
      Include the phys­i­cal address of our busi­ness or site headquarters.
      Monitor third-​party email mar­ket­ing ser­vices for com­pli­ance, if one is used.
      Honor opt-​out/​unsubscribe requests quickly.
      Allow users to unsub­scribe by using the link at the bot­tom of each email.

If at any time you would like to unsub­scribe from receiv­ing future emails, you can email us at
      Follow the instruc­tions at the bot­tom of each email.

and we will promptly remove you from ALL correspondence.
