COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States’ consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.
We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.
Do we let third-parties, including ad networks or plug-ins collect PII from children under 13?
Fair Information Practices
The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.
In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:
We will notify you via email
Within 14 business days
We will notify the users via in-site notification
Within 14 business days
We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
Proposition 65 warnings can be found on many manufacturers’ products and packaging, including ours.
These warnings are a result of a California State Law passed in 1986—the California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, also commonly known as Proposition 65. Read on for more information on Proposition 65 Warnings.
What is proposition 65? The purpose of Prop 65 is to ensure the public is informed about the potential exposure to chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.
Proposition 65 requires the State of California to publish a list of these chemicals. This list currently contains over 900 chemicals and continues to expand.
The law also requires companies to provide a warning on their products and/or packaging if they contain these chemicals. Chemicals on this list can be found in many everyday items. A warning must be given if the listed chemical is present in a product unless it can be demonstrated that the chemical poses “no significant risk.” For chemicals that can cause cancer, the ‘no significant risk’ level is defined as the level, which is calculated to result in not more than one excess case of cancer in 100,000 individuals exposed over a 70-year lifetime.
Our products may have traces of various chemicals that are on the list, but they are all a part of the normal manufacturing process.
What does a Proposition 65 warning mean? The warning does not mean our products will inevitably cause cancer or reproductive harm. Proposition 65 may be best defined as a “Right to Know” law and Proposition 65 warnings are not an indication that a product is violating safety standards or regulations.
Why do some products include this warning? Proposition 65 law applies to any company operating, manufacturing, or selling products in the state of California. Our products are sold internationally and it would be difficult or impossible to place warnings only on products shipped to or sold in California. At this time, we have chosen to include this warning on all of our products to ensure compliance with Proposition 65 law, regardless of destination.
