California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA)

CalOPPA is the first state law in the United States of America to require commercial websites and online service providers to post a privacy policy on their website. The CalOPPA's reach stretches well beyond California and requires 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:

  1. stating exactly what information is being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared; and

  2. to comply with this policy.

For more information on the CalOPPA, please follow the this link .

Please note that this privacy policy constitutes our privacy policy in accordance with CalOPPA. Furthermore, and in accordance with CalOPPA we agree to the following:

  1. visitors to our site can visit our site anonymously;

  2. a link to our privacy policy is available on our home page;

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 United States of America'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.

In compliance with the provisions of COPPA, we do not specifically market our products to children under the age of 13.

Fair Information Practices Principles

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States if America 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 the Fair Information Practices Principles, should a data breach occur we will notify the affected parties of such data breach via email within seven business days of such data breach occurring.

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.


The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that:

  1. sets the rules for commercial email;

  2. establishes requirements for commercial messages;

  3. gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them; and

  4. spells out tough penalties for violations.

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

  1. we will NOT use false or misleading subject lines or email addresses in any communications with you;

  2. in the event that our message to you is an advertisement, we will identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way;
