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 the users via email within 7 business days.
We also agree to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally 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 a government agency to
investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
