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/about-cfc/cfc-education-foundation/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa-3/#sthash.54mEwgBE.dpbs

According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:

  • Users can visit our site anonymously.
  • Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page, or as a minimum on
  • the first significant page after entering our website.
  • Our Privacy Policy link includes the word 'Privacy', and can be easily be found on the page
  • 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 in to their account

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.
