We use Google Analytics and Facebook (Pixel) as our data processors. Their use is to compile data that enables us to further expand business and marketing, and to help us see what we're doing wrong or right via statistics and charts. IP addresses gathered by Google Analytics are anonymized.
Our software has and uses the ability to integrate with Google Analytics and Facebook's Pixel to show when actions such as registering an account have been made.

The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule.

We do not specifically market to children under 13 and will not knowingly collect or retain their information should we discover it through our services.

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 known data breach occur:
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.
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.
Note that not all emails sent by us are commercial emails, and as such do not apply to this policy.
