Our Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us and we will do whatever it takes to protect your information.

This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their 'Personally identifiable information' (PII) is being used online. PII, as used in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with our website.

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 a 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 with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. 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 be easily be found on the page specified above;

Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes on our Privacy Policy Page;

Users are able to change their personal information by emailing us.

How does our site handle 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.

Does our site allow third party behavioral tracking?

No! We do not allow third party behavioral tracking!

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

We hope MAX & CHARLIE appeals to the child in all of us, but those under 13 years old are specially protected by the US Federal Trade Commission — when it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission (the USA's 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 take this responsibility seriously and will do everything in our power to keep you, your kids, and everyone's information safe and sound.

Learn more about COPPA - Children's Online Privacy Protection Act →

We adhere to the following COPPA tenants:

We will not require a child to disclose more information than is reasonably necessary to particapate in an activity.

Parents can review their child's personal information, direct us to delete it, and refuse to allow any further collection or use of the child's information.

Parents can agree to the collection and use of their child's information, but still NOT allow disclosure to third parties unless that's part of the service.

Parents can review, delete, manage or refuse with whom their child's information is shared through through account settings on our website, through emailing our support staff, through calling our support number, by mailing us a letter contacting us directly.

We will notify parents directly before collecting PII from their kids. This includes what specific information you will want to collect and how it might be disclosed, a link to your online privacy policy, and how the parents can give their consent. Also, if the parent doesn't consent within a reasonable time you will delete the parent's and childs online contact info from your records.

Parents can give consent by sign a consent form and send it back to us via fax, mail, or electronic scan, use a credit card, debit card, or other online payment system that provides notification of each separate transaction to the account holder, connect to trained personnel via a video conference, provide a copy of a form of government issued ID that you check against a database, as long as you delete the identification from your records when you finish the verification process or contacting us directly.

In order to remove you or your child's information, please contact us:

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. 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 data breach occur:

We will notify the users via email Wwthin 7 business days

We will notify the users via in site notification within 7 business days

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.
