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.
We adhere to the Fair Information Practices. We encrypt your personal information using a combination of encryption algorithms to ensure that your information is kept safe and secure. Although highly unlikely, it is possible for an unauthorized person to gain access to the data stored in any of our databases. All sensitive information contained within any database is encrypted prior to being saved to the database making it practically impossible to read the data in plain text as it was originally entered into said database. In the event of a data breach, we will notify all users via email within seven (7) business days. We will also post a notification on the homepage of our website within seven (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.
