Privacy is important. Without privacy you don’t have a moment to yourself, and that’s enough to drive me mad.
That’s why strikingtan.com respects your privacy. Read on to find out how strikingtan.com collects and handles your personal information.
What personal information does strikingtan.com collect from visitors?

We may also release information when it’s release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property or safety.
Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third-party products or services on our website. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)
When it comes to the collection of 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, i.e. the 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 market to anyone under the age of thirteen (13) years.
I endorse products that I have used and that I recommend because of their practical benefit. I do not endorse products I have not used or that I do not recommend because of their lack of practicality. Buying these specific products on a third-party website from strikingtan.com leads to me earning commission from said third-party website.
