California Online Privacy Protection Act

The first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy is the California Online Privacy Protection Act or CalOPPA. Any website that collects Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers must post a privacy policy stating exactly what information is being collected and who the individuals are.

Fair Information Practices

Data protection laws around the world have been influenced by the concepts included in the Fair Information Practices Principles. To comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information, you must understand the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented. The principle requires that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and prosecute data users who do not comply with the law.


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 of the law. If you would like to stop receiving future emails, you can email us at and follow the instructions at the bottom of every email. We will remove you from all correspondence very quickly.
