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.
