CalOPPA — CALIFORNIA ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION ACT

1. WHAT IT IS

CalOPPA is the first state law in the United States to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy.  The law’s reach stretches well beyond California.  It requires a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) which operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website.  This policy must state exactly which information is being collected and with whom it is being shared.

To learn more, follow this link.

2. ACCORDING TO CalOPPA, WE AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING
  • Users may visit our site anonymously.
  • We will add a link to this privacy policy in our website footer.  At the minimum, this will appear on the first significant page of the website.
  • Our privacy policy link includes the word Privacy and can be easily found in the location specified above.
  • Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes on our Privacy Policy page.

 

Users are able to change their personal information:

  • By logging into their account
  • Contacting us by email or phone

COPPA — CHILDREN'S ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION ACT

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

We do not specifically market to children under 13.

FAIR INFORMATION PRACTICES

1. INTRODUCTION

The Fair Information Practice principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States.  The concepts included have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe.  It is critical to understand the Fair Information Practice principles, and how they should be implemented, to comply with privacy laws.

2. HANDLING DATA BREACHES

We will notify users via email and in-site notification within one business day.

We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle.  It requires individuals to have the right to pursue legal enforcement 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 for individuals to have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
