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 a 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 with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. – See more at:

  COPPA (Children Online PrivacyProtection Act)

  When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children’s Online Privacy ProtectionAct (COPPA) puts parents in control.

  We do not specifically market to children under 13.
