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 (and the EU’s GDPR described below) we will notify everyone on our email list within 3 days (72 hours) or less if we notice any breach or possible breach in the information we collect.

We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue 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.

U.S. CAN-SPAM Act

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that set 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
  • Market to our mailing list or continue to send emails to our clients after the original transaction has occurred.

To be in accordance with these regulations, we agree to the following:

  • Not use false or misleading subjects or email addresses.
  • Identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way.
  • Include the physical address of our business or site headquarters.
  • Monitor third-party email marketing services for compliance.
  • Honor opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly.
  • Allow users to unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of each email.

If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can contact us via our website form, email us at [email protected], or unsubscribe from our eblast using the link at the bottom of any of our eblasts.

EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

As a member of the World Wide Web, we have taken action to the EU’s regulation of GDPR. GDPR includes many actions to ensure we are properly and responsibly communicating to our online visitors and receivers of our marketing messages. Because we practice good website and communication techniques, Marketing Matters has been in compliance with many aspects of this regulation for years. But we have taken some actions to ensure we comply fully with the regulation, including:

We have added a cookie opt-out message on our website to ensure visitors give permission for the use of cookies.

We have performed an audit of our data and sent an email to all our contacts inviting them to opt-out of our messages, and detailed our data protection policies.

We have ensured our privacy policy is written in plain English as to not mislead our visitors in any way.

At any time you can contact us to request what information we have on you, which will typically only be an email and name, or other contact information including address or phone if it has been willingly supplied to Marketing Matters. We do not collect any sensitive information via 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 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.
  • Our Privacy Policy link includes the word ‘Privacy’ and can easily be found on the page specified above.
  • You will be notified of any Privacy Policy changes on this page, our Privacy Policy

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.
