The Web of Trust (WOT) says you collect personally identifiable information over non-secure protocol. What does that mean?
Web of trust is a user-moderated "service" that claims to review sites for security and is largely subjected to the opinions and agendas of the users that install and use their plugin, comment on WOT "scorecards," or otherwise participate in WOT. There is no qualification or screening for participating in WOT, therefore most of its participants are generally not technically qualified to assess the security or safety of a web site. For these reasons, any opinion or scorecard rating generated by WOT should be considered with judicious caution.
In reference to this web site, any claims, past or present, are false; our contact page and checkout page, where we collect information, are secured by a 256 bit GeoTrust SSL cert, even though it is not required for the information we collect.
For more information, we encourage you to search for "Web of Trust scam" in your favorite search engine.

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, but this website may contain content that may not be appropriate for children under 13 in the form of adult themes or language.
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 the users via email (if available via registration on this site) Within 7 business days.
- We will notify the users via in-site notification 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 government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
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.
