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 a 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 with whom it is being shared, and to
comply with this policy. – See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

Users can visit our site anonymously

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)
When it comes to the 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 nation’s 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 13.
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 the users 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 a right to pursue legally 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 a government
agency 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,
