Your Data Protection Rights under the California 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 in the United States (and conceivable 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: https://consumercal.org/about-cfc/cfc-education-foundation/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa-3/.

According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:

Some web browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” feature. As there is not yet an accepted standard for how to respond to Do Not Track signals, our website does not respond to such signals.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. Thus, you are advised to review this page periodically for any changes.
