Third Party Disclosure

We do not sell, trade, or oth­er­wise trans­fer to out­side par­ties your per­son­al­ly iden­ti­fi­able infor­ma­tion.

Third party links

Occasionally, at our dis­cre­tion, we may include or offer third par­ty prod­ucts or ser­vices on our web­site. These third par­ty sites have sep­a­rate and inde­pen­dent pri­va­cy poli­cies. We there­fore have no respon­si­bil­i­ty or lia­bil­i­ty for the con­tent and activ­i­ties of the­se linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to pro­tect the integri­ty of our site and wel­come any feed­back about the­se sites.

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

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 home­page, 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.

  •       On our Privacy Policy Page

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

We will noti­fy the users via email

  •       Within 1 busi­ness day

We will noti­fy the users via in site noti­fi­ca­tion

  •       Other – Within 1 busi­ness day or ASAP

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.

If at any time you would like to unsub­scribe from receiv­ing future emails, you can email us at admin@supernerdland.com and we will prompt­ly remove you from ALL cor­re­spon­dence.
