Collection of Information from Children.  We do not knowingly collect information from children under the agent of thirteen (13).  If we learn that a child under the age of 13 has provided us with information, we will delete it in accordance with applicable law.

Your California Privacy Rights.  California residents are entitled once a year, free of charge, to request and obtain certain information regarding our disclosure, if any, of certain categories of information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year.  We do not share personal information with third parties for their own direct marketing purposes.

Do-No-Track Signals.  Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to the websites with which the user communicates.  Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they are even aware of them.  Because there currently is no industry standard concerning what, if anything, websites should do when they receive these signals, Rollease Acmeda currently does not take action in response to these signals.  If and when a final standard is established and accepted, we will reassess how to respond to these signals.
