CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law applies beyond California, requiring any person or company in the United States (and conceivably in the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly what
information is being collected and with which individuals or companies it is being shared. For more information about CalOPPA, use the following link:

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

We will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of thirteen without prior verifiable parental consent. If we become aware that a site visitor under the age of thirteen has provided personal data without prior verifiable parental consent, we will remove his or her personally identifiable information from our files. In order to remove your child's information please contact the following personnel:

We adhere to the following COPPA tenant:

  • Parents can review, manage, delete, or refuse with whom their child's information is shared by contacting us directly.
     

Fair Information Practices

The principles of the Fair Information Practices 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 and implementing the principles of the Fair Information Practice is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

In accordance with Fair Information Practices, we will take responsive action should a data breach occur. We will notify you via email within seven business days of a breach. We will notify the users via in-site notification within seven business days of a breach.

Also in line with Fair Information Practices, we adhere 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 states not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts and/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 rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to stop emails from being sent to them, and stipulates tough penalties for violations.

  • Send information and respond to inquiries and requests.
  • Process orders and send information and updates pertaining to orders.
  • Send additional information related to our products and/or services.
  • Market to our mailing list or continue to send information to our clients after the original transaction has occurred.

In accordance with CAN-SPAM, we agree to do the following:

  • Identify any advertising message as an advertisement in some reasonable way.
  • Include the physical address of our business or site headquarters in our emails.
  • Monitor third-party email marketing services for compliance, if used.
