Facebook Conversion Tracking Pixel
Our website utilizes the Conversion Tracking Pixel service of Facebook Inc. ("Facebook"). This tracking pixel is a small piece of Java script code that we have embedded into each of our web pages. This piece of code allows us to follow the actions of users after they are redirected to a provider's website by clicking on a Facebook advertisement. We use these pixels to record information about the way visitors use our website. This pixel records information about the user's browser session, which it sends to Facebook, along with a hashed version of the Facebook ID and the URL viewed.
Every Facebook user has a unique, device-independent Facebook ID that allows us to address and recognise users across a range of devices using the Facebook social network, so that we can address our visitors for commercial purposes using Facebook ads. The user information will be deleted after 180 days, until the user visits our website again. The collected data remain anonymous. This means that we cannot see the personal data of any individual user, and we will not be able to discover the identity of any individual user. However, the collected data are saved and processed by Facebook. We use the anonymous data from visitors to monitor and record the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements for our market research and advertising purposes.
We are informing you on this matter based on the information available to us at this time. Facebook is able to connect the data with your Facebook account and use the data for their own advertising purposes, in accordance with Facebook's Data Use Policy found here: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy. Facebook Conversion Tracking also allows Facebook and its partners to show you advertisements on and outside of Facebook. Also, a cookie will be saved onto your computer for these purposes.
Only users over 13 years of age may give their permission. If you are younger than this age, please consult your parent(s) or legal guardian(s) on this matter. Please click here if you would like to revoke your permission: https://www.facebook.com/ads/website_custom_audiences.

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 do not knowingly collect personal information from any person under the age of 18.
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 you via email within 3 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.
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.
