California Users’ Privacy Rights

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) creates consumer rights for residents of the state of California relating to the access to, deletion of, and sharing of personal information that is collected by businesses. The CCPA defines terms such as “sale”, “personal information”, and “other valuable consideration” more broadly than commonly used. This section uses the definitions provided by the CCPA. Under the CCPA definitions, we may be determined to have “sold” the following “Personal Information” within the past 12 months: identifies/contact information and internet/electronic activity information, sold to data analytics providers and/or advertising networks.

California Residents may take advantage of the following privacy rights pursuant to the CCPA:

  • You may, up to twice a year, request that we disclose to you the categories and specific pieces of personal information that we have collected about you, the categories of sources from which your personal information is collected, the business or commercial purpose for collecting your personal information, the categories of personal information that we disclosed for a business purpose, any categories of personal information that we sold about you, the categories of third parties with whom we have shared your personal information, and the business or commercial purpose for selling or disclosing your personal information, if applicable.
  • You may request that we delete any personal information that we have collected from or about you. However, in some instances, such as if we need to complete a transaction, to detect or protect against fraudulent or illegal activity, to exercise our rights, or to comply with a legal obligation, we may not be able to fully address a request to delete information.
  • You may, once a year, request and obtain from us and free of charge, information about the personal information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. If applicable, this information will include a list of the categories of personal information that was shared and the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared such information.

If you are a California resident and would like to submit a privacy rights request, please contact us at We may take steps to verify your identity before responding to your request by verifying that you control the email address associated with your personal information, verifying account information, and asking you a series of questions about your previous interactions with us. If you exercise any of the foregoing rights, we will not discriminate against you, such as by denying you access to our products or restricting your access to products of certain pricing or quality. We will confirm receipt of your request within 10 business days and will respond to your request within 45 calendar days, after proper verification, unless we need additional time, in which case we will let you know.

Opt-Out Requests. To opt out of the sale of your Personal Information, please click on the “Do Not Sell My Personal Info” link on our website footer. We will comply with your opt-out request within 15 business days. Please note, this is a limited opt out that does not apply to previously collected information or data which we do not sell. You will still receive targeted advertising sold by other sources from which you have not opted out. If you wish to opt out of all targeted advertising, please refer to the “Your Opt-Out Choices” section above.

Agent Requests. You may authorize someone to make a privacy rights request on your behalf (an authorized agent).
