California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA)
The California Online Privacy Protection Act is the first state law to require websites and online services to post a protection policy. This applies to any person or company within the United States (and conceivably the world) whose website collects personally identifiable information from California consumers. Read more on CalOPPA here.
According to CalOPPA, we agree to the below:
It is important to know our site has third-party behavioral tracking as it is included in our package from our web host.
The Fair Information Practice Principles (FIPPs)
The Fair Information Practice Principles (FIPPs) are a set of internationally recognized principles that inform information privacy policies both within the government and the private sector. It is the core privacy act in the United States and its important role in building data privacy rules within the United States.
To be compliant with The Fair Information Practice Principles (FIPPs) we will notify users within seven (7) days if a data breach occurs.
We also agree with the Redress Principle, which states users have the right to pursue legal action against data collectors who fail to uphold the standards of this law. This allows users to use courts and government agencies if we are noncompliant with data processing.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)
The primary goal of COPPA is to place parents in control over what information is collected from their young children online. The Rule was designed to protect children under age 13 while accounting for the dynamic nature of the Internet. We do not market to children under 13 specifically. For more on COPPA.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
For a bonus, we have added a link to the GDPR requirements. Anyone can sign up for our newsletter or store promotions so it made sense to include the GDPR.
Thanks for reading and enjoy your time on our site.
