CONTROLS FOR DO-NOT-TRACK FEATURES

Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems and mobile applications include a Do-Not-Tract (“DNT”) feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected.  No uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing DNT signals has been finalized at the time of this Privacy Policy. As such, we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online.  If a standard for online tracking is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will inform you about that practice in a revised version of this privacy policy.

 

DO CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS HAVE SPECIFIC PRIVACY RIGHTS?

In short:  yes, if you are a California resident, you are granted specific rights regarding access to your personal information.

California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as the “Shine the Light” law, permits our users who are California residents to request and obtain from us, once a year and free of charge, information about categories of personal information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes and the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared personal information in the immediately preceding calendar year.  If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to us using the contact information provided below.

If you are under 18 years of age, reside in California, and have a registered account with the Services (if any), you have the right to request removal of unwanted data that you publicly post on the Services.  To request removal of such data, please contact us using the contact information provided below, and include the email address associated with your account and a statement that you are a resident of California.  We will make sure that the data is not publicly displayed on the Services, but please be aware that data may not be complete or comprehensively removed from our systems.

California Online Privacy Protection Act (CALOPPA):  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 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 the individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. Learn more about CalOPPA at the Consumer Federation of California’s website.

In compliance with CalOPPA we agree to the following:

  • Users can visit our site anonymously.
  • We will create a privacy policy 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 page specified above.
  • Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes on our Privacy Policy page.
  • Users are able to change their personal information by calling us.

Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA):  The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online by regulating the collection of personal information from children under age 13. Our Services do not specifically market to children under age 13.

 

DO WE MAKE UPDATES TO THIS POLICY?

In short:  yes, we will update this policy as necessary to stay compliant with relevant laws.

We may update this privacy policy from time to time.  The updated version will be indicated by an updated “Revised” date and the updated version will be effective as soon as it is accessible.  If we make material changes to this privacy policy, we may, but are not obligated to, either notify you by prominently posting a notice of such changes or by directly sending you a notification.  We encourage you to review this privacy policy frequently to be informed of how we are protecting your information.
