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. – 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 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.

 

How Will I Be Notified of Any Privacy Policy Changes?

 

All of our Privacy Policy changes are located inside the Privacy Policy itself.

 

How Can I Change My Personal Information

Do Not Track Signals

 

We honor Do Not Track signals and do not track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place.

 

Third-party Behavioral Tracking

 

We use some plugins that capture data, but do not make use of it.  Google Analytics tracks your browsing habits on our site, but does not store personal information about you.  Occasionally you may find links within our site that take you to other sites, in which case, you are obliged to read the privacy policies on those sites to determine how your information is being used.  Animal Medical of New City never directs traffic to dubious websites, but only to the most respectable veterinary medical/news sites and organizations in the world.

 

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.

 

CAN SPAM Act

 

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.

We collect your email address in order to send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions
