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://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/
#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

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 be easily
be found on the page specified above.

You will be notified of any Privacy Policy changes:

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 within 7 business days

We will notify the users via in-site notification within 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 those 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.

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.

-Send information; respond to inquiries, and/or other requests
 or questions
-Process orders and to send information and updates pertainingto orders.
