CalOPPA (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.

According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:

  • Visitors can visit our site anonymously.

FIPPs (FTC Fair Information Practice Principles)

The United States Federal Trade Commission’s Fair Information Practice Principles (FIPPs) are guidelines that represent widely accepted concepts concerning fair information practice in an electronic marketplace.

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 website visitors via email 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 a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
