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.

In compliance with Fair Information Practices, should a data breach occur, we will notify you via email within 30 business days.
