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:

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.
