California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared. - See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

Users can visit our site anonymously.

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.

We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.

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 7 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.

“Data reprinted with permission from Drone-Benchmark.com.”

DB reserves the right to monitor User’s use of the Product and/or the Data to ensure compliance with this Agreement and prevent fraudulent use. Such monitoring of use may include a determination of whether the Product and/or the Data is being accessed by a number of users greater than the number of Authorized Users identified on the Order. DB further reserves the right, with or without notice to User, to block future downloads by an Authorized User if DB suspects that such Authorized User is violating the terms of this Agreement.

Restrictions and Covenants of User. User shall: (i) adopt and enforce such internal policies, procedures, and monitoring mechanisms as are necessary to ensure that the Product and Data are used and accessed only by Users and only in accordance with the terms of this Agreement; and (ii) take all steps necessary to ensure that no person or entity will have unauthorized access to the Product or Data.
User shall NOT do or permit others to do any of the following: (i) use, copy, modify, sell, sublicense, rent, lease, transfer, assign, resell, or distribute or otherwise disseminate the Product or any Data, except as expressly and specifically authorized herein; (ii) permit any party, other than User, to use or have access to the Product by any means; (iii) use any data extraction or content extraction software programs in conjunction with the Product, or use any software programs that perform automatic downloading, copying or printing to extract data or information from the Product; except as expressly and specifically authorized herein; (iv) modify, translate, reverse engineer, disassemble, or decompile the Product or Data in any way; (v) use the Product or Data for service bureau work or in any time-sharing arrangement or outsourcing arrangement; or (vi) use the Product or Data for the purpose of providing a product or data that competes with DB’s Product or the Data.

The Product and the Data are intended for use by Users only. Nothing in this Agreement should be construed to grant to any other party any right to use, distribute, extract, export, or download the Product, the Data or any portion of the Data. User understands and acknowledges that it is responsible for maintaining the security of any username and password provided to it by DB, as changed from time to time, and for preventing unauthorized use of the Product and the Data by Users or by any third party. User is responsible for all unauthorized uses of the Product or the Data or breaches of this Agreement by its Users or by any third party accessing the Product or the Data through use of any passwords or usernames provided to User.

Termination and Survival. Unauthorized use or copying of the Product or the Data or otherwise failing to comply with the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall result in the immediate termination, without notice or right to cure, of this Agreement and the license granted hereunder and will entitle DB to other legal remedies. User acknowledges that, in the event of its breach of this Agreement, DB will not have an adequate remedy in money or damages, and that DB will therefore be entitled to obtain an injunction against such breach from a court of competent jurisdiction.

DB may, at its sole option and without any obligation to do so, notify User of any breach and specify a period of time within which User must cure said breach.

User agrees to certify its compliance with this destruction requirement in writing within ten (10) days of the termination of this License Agreement.

Disclaimer of Warranty. THE PRODUCT AND THE DATA ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NONINFRINGEMENT. DB DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL PROMISES, REPRESENTATIONS, AND WARRANTIES WITH RESPECT TO THE DATA (INCLUDING ITS ACCURACY AND COMPLETENESS) AND THE PRODUCT (INCLUDING ITS CONDITION, ITS CONFORMITY TO ANY REPRESENTATION OR DESCRIPTION, THE EXISTENCE OF ANY LATENT DEFECTS, AND ANY NEGLIGENCE IN ITS CREATION OR PRODUCTION).

Indemnification. To the fullest extent of applicable law, User will indemnify and hold DB, its affiliates and their respective directors, employees, representatives and agents harmless from and against any claim, demand, action, class action, investigation or other proceeding, including but not limited to all damages, losses, liabilities, judgments, costs and expenses (including attorneys’ fees, expert witness fees and/or court costs) arising therefrom, brought by any third party against DB (“Claims”) to the extent that such Claims are based on, arise out of or in connection with User’s use of the Product or the Data.

Miscellaneous. The parties acknowledge that the relationship of DB and User is that of independent contractors and that nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed to place DB and User in the relationship of principal and agent, master and servant, partners or joint ventures. No modification of this Agreement shall be binding unless it is in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the party against whom enforcement of the modification is sought.

No waiver by either party of any condition or the breach of any provision of this Agreement in any one or more instances shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of the same or any other condition or provision. Neither party may use or refer to the name of any other party or any trademark or service mark of such other party in any marketing, advertising, press release, or other public announcement without the prior written consent of the other Party.
