California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA)

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. Given that Goldie's Donuts & Bakery has two locations in the Greater Cleveland, Ohio region, we do not directly market to nor serve California residents. However, given the internet's global reach, CalOPPA stretches well beyond California's borders to all companies in the United States (and, in reality, the world) that operates websites that collect personal information from California consumers. According to CalOPPA, we agree to the following:

  • Users can visit our site anonymously.

  • Users can easily access our privacy policy in our website's footer on all pages.

  • Our privacy policy link includes the word "Privacy."

  • We will notify users of any privacy policy changes on our policy page.

  • Users can change their personal information by emailing us.

Additionally, Goldie's Donuts & Bakery does not alter our website's data collection and use practices when we see a Do Not Track signal from your browser.

Children Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)

When collecting 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 their implementation is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.


In order to comply with Fair Information Practices, we will notify users via email and in-site notification should a data breach occur.


We also agree with 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.
