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 the CalOPPA site.

In accordance to CalOPPA we agree to the following:

Users can visit our site anonymously.

A link to this privacy policy will remain in the footer section on every page of our website.

Our Privacy Policy link includes the word “Privacy” and can be easily be identified by the words “Privacy Policy” in any link to it.

Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes:

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, but this website may contain content that may not be appropriate for children under 13 in the form of adult themes or language.

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 (if available via registration on this site) Within 7 business days.
  • We will notify the users via in-site notification within 7 business days

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 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:

  • Process orders and to send information and updates pertaining to orders.
  • Market to our mailing list or continue to send emails to our customers after the original transaction has occurred, if the customer has asked to be on our mailing list.

To be in accordance with CAN-SPAM we agree to the following:

  • Not use false or misleading subjects or email addresses.
  • Identify marketing messages as an advertisement in some reasonable way.
  • 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.

Alternatively, to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, recipients can respond to the email with the word UNSUBSCRIBE as the mail subject and we will promptly remove you from our mailing list.
