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, should a data breach occur, we will notify registered newsletter recipients via email within 7 business days and notify users via in-site notification within 1 business day.
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.
Please note that we collect your email address in order to respond to inquiries, other requests, and/or questions on an individual basis only. We do not send commercial level emails, blanket group emails, or other bulk marketing emails. Email replies and correspondence are sent only after a user has voluntarily corresponded with The Cincinnatist.
