In order 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.

This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
