This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their ‘Personally identifiable information’ (PII) is being used online.

Do we use ‘cookies’?  Yes. Most web and mobile device browsers automatically accept cookies but, if you prefer, you can change your browser to prevent that or to notify you each time a cookie is set. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. They are used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide you with improved services. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.  We may also use trusted third-party services that track this information on our behalf. You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser’s “Help” menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you disable cookies, some features will be disabled. However, you can still create a campaign, donate to a campaign, or browse the website.

This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.

Social Media:  Our Resources may allow you to log into our Resources via various social media services (i.e. Facebook). To utilize this added benefit, we may ask you to provide your credentials for the applicable social media service provider to log-in to our Resources. When you add a social media service to our Resources or log into the Resources by using a social media service, we may collect information necessary to enable the Resources to access the information stored within that social media service. As part this integration, the social media service will furnish MasterSocialMediaToday.com with appropriate access to certain information (i.e., your name, photograph, and other information). We may use, store, and disclose such information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Additionally, the way in which any social media service may use, store, and disclose your information is entirely administered by the policies of such third-parties, and MasterSocialMediaToday.com does not have any liability for the privacy practices of any social media service that may be enabled within the Resources.

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 a 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 with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy.

According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:  Users can visit our site anonymously. Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page, or as a minimum on the first significant page after entering our website. Our Privacy Policy link includes the word ‘Privacy’ and can be easily be found on the page specified above.

Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes:  On our Privacy Policy Page

Users can change their personal information:  By emailing us

How does our site handle do-not-track signals?  We honor do-not-track signals and do not track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place.

Does our site allow third-party behavioral tracking?  It’s also important to note that we do not allow third-party behavioral tracking.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act):  When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s 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 13.

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.  To be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:

We will notify the users via email and within 7 business days.  We also agree to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally 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 a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.  MasterSocialMediaToday.com cannot be held in indemnity.

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.

We collect your email addresses to send information, for marketing purposes, to respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions to our mailing list or continue to send emails to our users after the original transaction has occurred.  Market to our mailing list or continue to send emails to our users after the original transaction has occurred. To be in accordance with CANSPAM we agree to the following:

  • NOT use false, or misleading subjects or email addresses
  • Identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way
