Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Calf's websites choose to interact with Calf in ways that require Calf to gather personally identifying information. The amount and type of information that Calf gathers depend on the nature of the interaction.
Like most website operators, Calf collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, the date and time of each visitor request, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the site, and how you interact with the site. We refer to this automatically collected information as "Device Information."
Calf's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to understand better how Calf's visitors use its Website. From time to time, Calf may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its Website.
Calf also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged-in users. Calf only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally identifying information as described below.
We collect Device Information using the following technologies:
"Log files" track actions occurring on the site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.
"Web beacons," "tags," and "pixels" are electronic files used to record information about how you browse the site.
To enrich and perfect your online experience, Calf uses "Cookies," similar technologies and services provided by others to display personalized content, appropriate advertising, and store your preferences on your computer.
Those who engage in transactions with Calf – by purchasing Calf's services or products are asked to provide additional information, including the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. When you make a purchase or attempt to purchase through the site, we collect certain information from you, including your name, billing address, shipping address, payment information (including credit card numbers), email address, and phone number. We refer to this information as "Order Information." In each case, Calf collects such information only insofar as it is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Calf. Calf does not disclose personally identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to provide personally identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)
When it comes to collecting 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. The concepts they include have played a significant role in developing 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 you via email within seven 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 that individuals have enforceable rights against data users and that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
