    CalOPPA and NYS 2-D

    California Online Privacy Protection Act and New York State Education Law 2-D

    CalOPPA and NYS 2-D are the first state laws in the nation to require commercial websites, apps and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California and New York to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California or New York 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:

    Information Practices

    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/the user via email within seven (7) business days

    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.


    Email Practices

    CAN SPAM Act

    The CAN-SPAM Act is a law 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.

    We do not collect your email. If we ever change and start collecting, we would agree to the following:

  • Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions.

    To be in accordance with CANSPAM, we would agree to the following:

  • Not use false or misleading subjects or email addresses
