General Data Protection Regulation Information (GDPR)
- If you subscribe to our mailing list for updates, you will provide us your email address, which we will use to send you updates. You can unsubscribe whenever you like
- If you sign up for an online class, you will provide us your name, username, email address, and zip code for billing processes. Our third-party payment processors, Stripe and Paypal will collect and utilize your billing information and credit card information, but do not save the information on our behalf. All students are collected into a database under the sole control of Crisis Medicine LLC, which is protected behind a firewall and password protected. We do not share or sell our data to anyone. If you want your information deleted, let us know, but it will make it impossible to access any purchased classes. All email addresses of students are added to our mailing list, which is serviced by MailChimp; if you would like to be removed from that list, let us know. You’ll miss out on scintillating blog updates but will still be able to access your class
- If you purchase something from our store (t-shirts, a print, etc), we will require you to provide a mailing address. It too will go into our database with your customer information. Occasionally we will send you an additional thank you gift later.
California Online Privacy Protection Act
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.
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.
