Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the California State law in the USA, which obligates commercial websites and online services to publically disclose data protection guidelines. This law extends beyond California and requires that a website owner in the United States (potentially also worldwide) whose website raises personal data from Californian consumers, needs to publish a visible privacy statement on his website on which it is clearly described which data is collected and who has access to it.

To find out more about this, visit:

Http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

CalOPPA applies to any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the World) whose website collects personally identifiable information from consumers and visitors. CalOPPA requires the website to feature a conspicuous privacy policy stating exactly what information is collected and with whom it is shared(we share your email and media which includes one picture and one media hyperlink after your written compliane with the admin of Bandbook.net) it also requires the operator of the website or online service to comply with the site’s privacy policy. Those who fail to do so are at risk of civil litigation under the state’s Unfair Competition Law.

What is “personally identifiable information” known as PII ?

As legally defined, “personally identifiable information” refers to details collected on the Internet about an individual consumer, including an individual’s first and last name, a physical street address, an email address, a telephone number, a Social Security number, or any other information that permits a specific individual to be contacted physically or online.

Bandbook.net is collecting only the email

and personal digital portofolios from artists such as music Bands,as dancers or dancing teams-groups, photographers, videographers, directors, producers and only after written consent with us.

No data are held without pre-written acknowledgement with the artists.

The term extends to details such as a person’s birthday, height, weight or hair color that are collected online and stored by an operator in personally identifiable form.

How does our website deal with Do-Not-Track-Signals?

We respect Do-Not-Track-Signals and do not follow, place or advertise when a Do-Not-Track (DNT) browser mechanism is available for visitors.

2012, Twitter made headlines by announcing its decision to honor its users’ DNT headers. 

 

When a Twitter user has his browser’s DNT header turned on, Twitter stops collecting the information that would otherwise allow it to tailor suggestions and ads to that user based on his online activities.  More recently, Pinterest announced  that it will follow suit, becoming the second social media site to refrain from collecting data about its users’ activities across the web if they have DNT headers in place.

 

Does our website allow third party suppliers to pursue behavioural issues?

We also want to inform you that we do not allow third party suppliers to pursue behavioural issues.
