COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s 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.

We do not specifically market to 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 we will notify users of our website within (7) business days should a data breach occur.

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.

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.

We collect your email address in order to:

  • Send information, promotions, marketing information, business information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions;
  • Market to our mailing list or continue to send emails to our clients after the original transaction has occurred; and
  • Share your information with our third party provides to market our business to you.

To be in accordance with CAN SPAM we agree to:

  • Refrain from using 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 by following the requisite instructions. Once a user unsubscribes, they will be promptly removed from ALL correspondence.

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 a 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 with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. – See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

To comply with CalOPPA, we agree to the following:

  • Users can visit our site anonymously;
  • Once this privacy policy is created, we will add 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 be easily be found on the page specified above;
  • Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes via the privacy policy website page; and
  • Users are able to change their personal information by emailing us.

California Privacy Notice/Your California Privacy Rights
This section describes the way we collect, use, and process personal information of individual residents of the State of California, within the scope of the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). The term “Personal Information” in this section refers to that term as defined in California Civil Code Section 1798. Specifically, it is defined to include “any information that is maintained by an agency that identifies or describes an individual,” and includes names, addresses, phone numbers, etc. “Personal Information” does not include any public information. 

If you are a California resident, the CCPA provides you with certain rights regarding your personal information. This section is meant to describe those rights and how to exercise them:

  • You have the right to request certain information about the collection and use of your personal information over the past twelve months. Once we receive and verify your request, we will provide to you:
    • Categories of personal information we collected about you;
    • Categories of sources from which the personal information was collected;
    • The specific pieces of personal information that we collected about you;
    • Our purpose for collecting or selling any personal information; 
    • The purpose for which the categories of information collected will be used;
    • The categories of third parties with whom we share personal information; 
    • If we sold or disclosed any of your personal information for a business purpose; and
    • If we did sell any of your personal information, the categories of personal information sold or disclosed and the categories of any third parties to whom the information was sold or disclosed. 
  • You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and verify your request, we will delete your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies. We will also direct our service providers to delete your personal information, if applicable. 
  • We may deny your request to delete the personal information if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers to:
    • Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contractual obligations to you;
    • Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent or illegal activity;
    • Prosecute those responsible for any malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity;
    • Identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality;
    • Comply with legal obligations;
    • Exercise rights provided by the law;
    • Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act; or
    • Make lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it. 

To exercise your rights under the CCPA, please contact us at (561) 865-6238 or at info@thesaltsuite.com. Only you, or a person authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. However, you may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. We will be unable to respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm that the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request will not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request. 

You may make a verifiable consumer request up to two times within a twelve-month period, without charge. We will make an effort to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of receipt. If more time is needed, we will notify you of the reason and estimated time extension. We will deliver our response electronically or by mail, if requested. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the twelve-month period preceding the receipt. The response we provide will also explain any reasons we cannot comply with a request, in full or in part, if applicable. 

We will not, in any way, discriminate against you for exercising any of your rights under the CCPA. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

  • Deny you goods or services;
  • Charge you a different rate or price on goods or services;
  • Impose penalty fees;
  • Provide you with a different quality of goods or services; and
  • Suggest that you may receive different pricing or quality.

We reserve the right to change this policy at any time in the future. Please check back for changes.
