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.

According to 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 easily be found on the page specified above.
  • We do not sell and have not sold Personal Information in the preceding 12 months, as “sale” is defined in the CCPA.  We do not sell the Personal Information of minors under 16 years of age.

In instances where we collect Protected Health Information as defined by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), we may de-identify such information using the HIPAA Safe Harbor method or HIPAA Expert Determination method. Once this information is de-identified, it is no longer considered personal information, and we may use it in the same manner as other non-personal information. Any entities to whom we sell or disclose de-identified Protected Health Information are prohibited from attempting to re-identify it


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.

We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.


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 take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:

  • We will notify you via email
  • 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.



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 be in accordance with CANSPAM, 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.
  • Allow users to unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of each email.


Recourse, Enforcement, and Liability

We strive to resolve all complaints about privacy and the collection or use of customer information. If you have a complaint, please send an e-mail to

You may file a complaint concerning eKare’s processing of their Personal Data. eKare will take steps to remedy issues arising out of its alleged failure to comply with the DPF Principles. You may contact eKare as specified below about complaints regarding the company’s Personal Data practices.

Additionally, you have the right to file a complaint with your local data protection or privacy agency or supervisory authority.  In compliance with the EU-U.S. DPF and the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. DPF and the Swiss-U.S. DPF, eKare commits to refer unresolved complaints concerning our handling of personal data received in reliance on the EU-U.S. DPF and the UK Extension to the EU- U.S. DPF and the Swiss-U.S. DPF to ICDR-AAA, an alternative dispute resolution provider based in the United States.

Following the dispute resolution process, ICDR-AAA or you may refer the matter to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), which has DPF investigatory and enforcement powers over eKare. You have the possibility, under certain conditions, to invoke binding arbitration for complaints regarding DPF compliance not resolved by any other of the DPF mechanisms.  For additional information, please visit: Data Privacy Framework

In the context of an onward transfer, eKare has a responsibility for processing of personal information it receives under the DPF Program and subsequently transfers to a third party acting as an agent on its behalf. eKare shall remain liable under the DPF Principles if its agent processes such personal information in a manner inconsistent with the DPF Principles, unless eKare proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
