If Your Personal Information is Compromised
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 should a data breach occur, we will notify the users via email within 72 hours.
