Fair Information Practices
The principles of Fair Information Practices are the foundation of privacy law in the United States.

In the event of a data breach, we will take the following responsive action in line with Fair Information Practices:

This principle mandates that individuals not only have enforceable rights against data users but also have access to legal channels or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
