California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA)

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. The privacy policy must state 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, we agree to the following:

  • Users can visit our site anonymously.
  • Once we created this privacy policy, we added a link to it on our home page or as a minimum, on the first significant page after entering our website.
  • Our Privacy Policy link includes the word ‘Privacy’ and can easily be found on the page specified above.

Children Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, 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. As we do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old, COPPA does not apply to the Company.

Fair Information Practice Principles

The Fair Information Practice Principles (FIPPs) form the backbone of privacy law in the United States; and, the concepts include in FIPPs played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the world. 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 comply 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; and,
  • We will notify our website visitors, 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.

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.

To comply with the CAN-SPAM Act, we collect your email address to:

  • Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions;
  • Process orders and to send information and updates pertaining to orders;
  • Send you additional information related to your product and/or service; and,
  • Market to our mailing list, or continue to send emails to our members, after the original transaction has occurred.

To comply with the CAN-SPAM Act, we agree to the following:

  • Not use false or misleading subjects or email addresses;
  • Identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way;
  • Include the physical address of our business or site headquarters;
  • Monitor third-party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used;
  • Honor opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly; and,
  • Allow users to unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of each email.

If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future commercial content emails, follow the instructions at the bottom of each email and we will promptly remove you from all commercial correspondence. According to the CAN-SPAM Act, commercial content is content which advertises or promotes a commercial product or service, including content on a website operated for a commercial purpose.

However, we may continue to send you transactional or relationship content, in compliance with CAN-SPAM Act. Transactional or relationship content, according to the CAN-SPAM Act, is content which facilitates an already agreed-upon transaction or updates a customer about an ongoing transaction. You may opt out of transactional or relationship content by contacting the Company’s office at 936-327-8873 or by emailing us at clubbusiness@escapees.com.
