California Privacy Rights

Pursuant to Section 1798.83 of the California Civil Code, as a California consumer, you have the right to tell us not to disclose or transfer your personal information to a third party in exchange for something of value. This is referred to as the right to tell us “Do Not Sell” my personal information, or your right to “Opt Out of Sale.”  Additionally, residents of California can obtain certain information about the types of Personal Data that companies with whom they have an established business relationship have shared with third parties for direct marketing purposes during the preceding calendar year. In particular, the law provides that companies must inform consumers about the categories of Personal Data that have been shared with third parties, the names and addresses of those third parties, and examples of the types of service or products marketed by those third parties. This is a non-issue, since we don’t share or exchange your Personal Information with outside companies anyway.  For any questions that you have on this, please contact us at Michael@FunGroupEvents.com. 

Enforcement And Recourse

We take our privacy responsibility very seriously. We will conduct internal audits of our compliance with this Privacy Policy, and work to ensure that our employees and service providers also adhere to the Privacy Policy. If you have any questions or concerns regarding privacy related to the Service, please send us a detailed message to Michael@FunGroupEvents.com, and we will try to address your concerns.

Privacy Shield Inquiries

We are also determined to resolve complaints about your privacy and our collection and use of Personal Data transferred from the EU to the U.S. in compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles wherever it applies. Under certain situations, you may also be entitled to invoke binding arbitration for residual claims about whether we have violated our obligations to you under the Privacy Shield, and if that violation remains fully or partially un-remediated.

Changes To The Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices. If we make material changes to this Privacy Policy, you will be notified via email (if you have provided your email and consented to contact through this method) or otherwise in some manner through the Service that we determine reasonably likely to reach you (which may include posting a new Privacy Policy on a banner on the home page of our Website–or a specific announcement on this Privacy Policy page or on our blog). Any modifications to this Privacy Policy will be effective upon our posting of the new terms and/or upon implementation of the new changes on the Service (or as otherwise indicated at the time or posting) or on the effective date set froth in the modified Privacy Policy. In all cases, your continued use of the Service or Website after the posting of any modified Privacy Policy indicates your acceptance of the terms of the modified Privacy Policy.


Our Service is not intended for persons under the age of 18, and therefore, Salsa4Life does not knowingly acquire or receive Personal Data from children under the age of 18 (16 in the EU). If we later learn that any user of our Service is under the age of 18 (16 in the EU), we will take appropriate steps to remove that user’s Personal Data from the records of our service providers and will try to restrict that individual from future access to the Service.
