Terms and Conditions

We are just like you: Human beings, with a mind, will, and emotions, which sometimes are negatively affected. Unfortunately, we believe it necessary in this age of twisted law and logic, to try to shield ourselves in some way from the negative effects of people who have nothing better to do than bring suit against someone they think they have been offended or hurt by. Therefore, we have created these Terms of use, conditions, and privacy policy, which are subject to change at any time without notice. By purchasing from, browsing the websites of, or participating in any way in the following entities, you agree to abide by these terms.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act) 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 nation’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 do not specifically market to children under 13. Because the rules are very limiting, in order to bring you unfettered service, we have chosen not to adhere to the requirements of COPPA.

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 take reasonable steps to notify the users via email as soon as possible
We will take reasonable steps to notify the users via in-site notification as soon as possible
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 government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.

CAN SPAM Act. 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.
