California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared. – See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

According to CalOPPA,
Lawless French agrees to the following:

      Users can visit this site anonymously.
      This privacy policy is linked on the home page.
      The Privacy Policy link includes the word ‘Privacy’ and can easily be found on the home page.
      You will be notified of any Privacy Policy changes on the Privacy Policy Page.
      You can change your personal information by logging in to your account.

How does the site handle Do Not Track signals?

Lawless French honors Do Not Track signals and Do Not Track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place.

Does Lawless French allow third-party behavioral tracking?

Yes. What does this mean? http://www.knowonlineadvertising.com/targeting/behavioral-targeting/

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.

      Lawless French does not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.
      Lawless French does not 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, Lawless French will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:

Lawless French will notify you via email within 7 business days.

Lawless French also agrees 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.

CAN SPAM Act

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

      Send the newsletter.
      Respond to questions, comments, and requests.
