Fair Information Practices
The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States. The concepts they include have played a significant role in developing data protection laws around the globe.

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 seven business days
We will notify the users via in-site notification
- Within seven 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.
