This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their "Personally Identifiable Information" (PII) is being used online.

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 any 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 or companies with whom it is being shared. See more at:

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 easily be found on the pages specified above. You will be notified of any Privacy Policy changes on our Privacy Policy page. Can change your personal information by emailing or by calling us.

We do not Track, plant cookies, allow third-party behavioral tracking, or, except on our website, use advertising.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States' 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 the age of 13 years old nor do we let third-parties, including ad networks or plug-ins collect PII from 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.

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 you via email within 1 business day.
  • We will notify you via phone call within 1 business day.
  • We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle.

Individual Redress Principle

This principle requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue 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.
