This section provides additional details about California consumers and the rights afforded to them under the California Consumer Privacy Act or (“CCPA”). Under CCPA “Personal Information” is defined as anything that identifies, relates to, describes or is capable of being associated with or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular California consumer household. In the last 12 months, we collected the following categories of personal information subject to the CCPA:

  • identifiers (such as email address and IP address),
  • approximate geolocation information,
  • Internet or other electronic network activity information (such as browsing history and related usage data).

We collect this information for the business and commercial purposes described above. We share this information with the categories of third parties described above. We do not sell (as such term is defined in the CCPA) the personal information we collect (and will not sell it without providing you with a right to opt out).

The CCPA requires opt-in consent to information use for minors under the age of 16 and verified parental consent for children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect or process the information of children.

Subject to certain limitations, the CCPA provides California residents the right to request, free of charge, to know more details about the categories or specific pieces of personal information we collect (including how we use and disclose this information), to delete their personal information, to opt out of any “sales” that may be occurring, and to not be discriminated against for exercising these rights.

California consumers may make a request pursuant to their rights under the CCPA by contacting us at [email protected] We will verify your request using the information associated with your account, by asking you to provide information that matches information we have on file about you. You can also designate an authorized agent to exercise these rights on your behalf, but we will require proof that the person is authorized to act on your behalf and may also still ask you to verify your identity with us directly.
