Compliance With CalOPPA.
In January 2014, California implemented the California Online Privacy Protection Act, which requires online businesses such as the Website to disclose, as part of company Privacy Policies, whether the company tracks and collects personally identifiable information about Users and whether or not the company recognizes mechanisms (often called DNT or “Do Not Track” mechanisms) that have been designed to prevent such tracking.
When a DNT signal is received by the Website, the Website receives and tracks only the information permitted by the DNT signal. Users are encouraged to investigate DNT options, and to use or not use DNT mechanisms at the User’s discretion, to provide or screen personal information in the manner the User approves of and desires.
6. E-Mail Contact. Users who register for an Account must provide AFFN and Website with a valid e-mail address and other identifying Personal Information. AFFN and Website may use this Personal Information from time to time in order to contact Users for purposes of updating required information and providing important information about (a) services offered by AFFN and the Website, (b) changes to AFFN and Website policies, rules, procedures and practices and (c) the User’s personal account. AFFN and the Website do not and will not sell or disclose User names or e-mail addresses to third parties and do not engage in “spamming” or other unsolicited e-mail contact for purposes of marketing, advertising or sales.
8. User Access to Personal Information. Each User may access the User’s own Personal Information and Account information for the limited purposes of viewing, verifying, altering or updating Personal Information provided to AFFN and the Website. AFFN and the Website reserve the right to keep copies of all information provided to AFFN and Website, even after Account termination or closure.
