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 information at: 

http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-actcaloppa/# 
sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

Users can visit our site anonymously.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act) 

Regarding 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 7 business days

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 nforceable 
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
