Google’s advertising requirements can be summed up by Google’s AdWords Policies. They are put in place to provide a positive experience for users. We may use Google AdSense Advertising on our website. Google, as a third-party vendor, may use cookies to serve ads on our website. Google’s use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to our users based on their visit to our website and other websites on the Internet. DART uses non-personally identifiable information and does not track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, etc. Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.

We have implemented the following on this website:

California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA) Compliance

CalOPPA is the first state law in the U.S. 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 in the U.S. (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 with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. See more at the Consumer Federation of California’s CalOPPA page.

According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:

  • Users can visit our website 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 found easily 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 emailing us at

Do Not Track

We honor Do Not Track (DNT) signals and do not track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a DNT browser mechanism is in place.

Children Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) Compliance

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under age 13, the COPPA puts parents in control. The U.S. Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA, 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 age 13.

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practice Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the U.S., and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the world. 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 the users via email within seven business days.
  • We will notify the users via this website within seven business days.

We also agree to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally 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 a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.

Acceptance of This Policy

By your continued use of this website, you consent to the terms of this privacy policy.
