Do we use cook­ies’?

Yes. Cook­ies are small files that a site or its ser­vice provider trans­fers to your com­put­er’s hard dri­ve through your Web brows­er (if you allow) that enables the site’s or ser­vice provider’s sys­tems to rec­og­nize your brows­er and cap­ture and remem­ber cer­tain infor­ma­tion. For instance, we use cook­ies to help us remem­ber and process the items in your shop­ping cart. They are also used to help us under­stand your pref­er­ences based on pre­vi­ous or cur­rent site activ­i­ty, which enables us to pro­vide you with improved ser­vices. We also use cook­ies to help us com­pile aggre­gate data about site traf­fic and site inter­ac­tion so that we can offer bet­ter site expe­ri­ences and tools in the future.

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: http://​con​sumer​cal​.org/​c​a​lifor…

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.

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

We also agree to the Indi­vid­ual Redress Prin­ci­ple which 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.
