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 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
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 government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
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.

California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA)

Know what personal data is being collected about them.
Know whether their personal data is sold or disclosed and to whom.
Say no to the sale of personal data.
Access their personal data.
Request a business to delete any personal information about a consumer collected from that consumer.
Not be discriminated against for exercising their privacy rights.
COMPLIANCE and CRITERIA
The CCPA applies to any business, including any for-profit entity that collects consumers' personal data, which does business in California, and satisfies at least one of the following thresholds:
Has annual gross revenues in excess of $25 million;
Buys or sells the personal information of 50,000 or more consumers or households; or
Earns more than half of its annual revenue from selling consumers' personal information.
Organizations are required to "implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices" in protecting consumer data.
Because WattsRunning does not meet any of the three criteria listed above, we are NOT REQUIRED to comply with the CCPA, HOWEVER, WattsRunning optionally chooses to comply with this act of legislation. Rest assured, your personal data will never be disclosed to any other entity, sold or bartered. WattsRunning values you and your privacy!
