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 7 business days
We will notify the users via in-site notification
• Within 7 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.
