Google Ad Services

Google's advertising requirements can be summed up by Google's Advertising Principles. They are put in place to provide a positive experience for users. https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/topic/1626336?hl=en

Google, as a third party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on our site. Google's use of cookies enables it to serve ads to our users based on their visit to our site and other sites on the Internet. Users may opt out of the use of the Google cookies by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.

It's also important to note that we allow third-party behavioral tracking.

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 worldwide. 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 should a data breach occur, we will notify the members via email within two (2) business days and will notify the users via in site notification within one (1) business day. 

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.


The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to stop emails from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.  We collect your email address in order to:

    • Send 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

To be in accordance with the CAN-SPAM Act, we agree to the following:
