California Online Privacy Protection Act. CalOPPA is the first state law in the United States of America 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: CalOPPA and CalOPPA Amend.

According to CalOPPA websites should agree to the following: Users can visit our website 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.

Children Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) of the USA puts parents in control. The USA 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 USA 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: a) We will notify the registered users via email within 2 business days; b) We will notify the non-registered users via in website notification within 2 business days.

We do not 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. We do not agree to the individual redress principle due that the Internet represents an insecure channel for exchanging information leading to a high risk of intrusion or fraud.

CAN-SPAM Act. The CAN-SPAM Act is a law of the United States of America 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.
