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. – See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:

Users can visit our site anonymously. Our Privacy Policy link includes the word ‘Privacy’, and can be easily be found on the web page specified above.

Users are able to change their personal information by emailing us

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.

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.

“Anytime I can see and listen to Catherine Heeg’s presentations at NTA’s TREX I make sure I clear my time and attend. Catherine is fun and gets you to think about communication tactics in a simple format to understand. I have found Catherine so informative attending her seminars and webinars, that I now can call myself a friend and a client. I listen to Catherine’s weekly marketing message too every Monday morning over my morning coffee. A few great tips for my social media every week! Thanks Catherine, you are the best!”

“Catherine has provided several Social Media services to our Independent Agents and member agents for a number of years. We constantly are receiving great feedback about the level of the services that she provides to all of them. ADVAIA makes a point of telling all of our clients that they should utilize Catherine’s services to insure that they have a social media presence as we feel that this is a very important aspect of insuring client engagement. We find that many of our clients do not have the time to manage their social media, therefore, having Catherine provide those services insures that they have up-to-date content on their pages. Catherine is also great to work with!”

Speaking topics include:

  • Social media strategy, design, implementation
  • Compelling communication tactics for sales and marketing professionals
  • Effectively integrating social and traditional marketing strategies and tactics
  • Selling skills that leverage social media to reach customers and prospects

Here’s how we can work together:

  • Live sessions at your upcoming conference or convention
  • Real-time live webinars for your staff or travel partner
  • On-line course development and presentation

Interactive sessions engage participants and a toolbox of strategies allows them to immediately implement what they have learned.
