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.

  1. Users can visit our site anonymously.
  2. 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.
  3. Our Privacy Policy link includes the word ‘Privacy’ and can easily be found on the page specified above.

CAN SPAM Act

  1. Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions
  2. Process orders and to send information and updates pertaining to orders.
