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. We are not responsible for third-parties, including plug-ins unrelated to Sightline Media Entertainment LLC, that collect PII from children under 13. Nor are we responsible for online ad exchanges, including SSPs, DSPs, data aggregators and retargeting platforms, including ad networks that put our website into their networks, databases and platforms without notifying us. Our audience is parents, caregivers and grandparents looking for inspirational books and adults over 18 years-old seeking movie, book or music content.
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 all visitors that fill out the contact form, and anyone that responds to a survey or marketing communications content and submits an email address that we can respond to:
- Within 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 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. We will only collect name, email, subject and your message which is completely optional to any visitor to https://www.sightlinemediaentertainment.com
