  • Your 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.

    According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:

    I. Users can visit our site anonymously;

    II. Our Privacy Policy link includes the word “Privacy”, and can easily be found on the homepage of our website;

    III. Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes on our Privacy Policy Page;
