If you are a California resident, your information may be covered by the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). The below disclosures apply to the extent the CCPA applies to your data, subject to any applicable exemptions.
“Personal Information” We Collect
The categories of “personal information,” as defined in the CCPA, that we collect include:
- Personal information categories listed in the California Customer Records statute (Cal. Civ. Code § 1798.80(e))
- Characteristics of protected classifications under California or U.S. federal law
- Commercial information
- Internet or other electronic network activity information
- Audio, electronic, and visual information

“Personal information” under the CCPA does not include aggregated or de-identified information. It also does not include protected health information governed by the Health Insurance Portability and Affordability Act (HIPAA).
“Sales” of Personal Information
We do not “sell” your personal information as that term is defined in the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).
Your California Privacy Rights
You may have the following rights with respect to your personal information under the CCPA:
(i) Right to Know About Personal Information Collected, Disclosed, or Sold
You may have the right to request that we provide certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past twelve (12) months. Specifically, you may have the right to request disclosure of:
- The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you;
- The categories of personal information we collected about you;
- The categories of sources from which personal information was collected;
- Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or disclosing personal information; and
- The categories of third parties with whom we shared personal information.
(ii) Right to Request Deletion of Personal Information
You may also have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected or maintain about you, subject to certain exceptions.
(iii) Right to Correct Inaccurate Personal Information
You may also have the right to request that we correct inaccurate personal information we maintain.
(iv) Right to Non-Discrimination for the Exercise of a Consumer’s Privacy Rights
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:
- Deny you goods or services.
- Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
- Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
- Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your personal information’s value and contain written terms that describe the program’s material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt-in consent, which you may revoke at any time.
(v) Exercising Your California Privacy Rights
To request to exercise your CCPA rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by using the information in the “Contact Us” section below. Only you or your “authorized agent,” as defined in the CCPA, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information.
Your verifiable consumer request must: (i) provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify that you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative; and (ii) describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it. We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. We will use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We may, however, request you for additional information in order to verify your identity.
To help protect your privacy and maintain security, we will take steps to verify your identity before granting you access to your personal information or complying with your request. If you request to access or delete your personal information, we may require you to provide information such as: physical address, date of birth, and phone number. In addition, if you ask us to provide you with specific pieces of personal information, we will require you to sign a declaration under penalty of perjury that you are the consumer whose personal information is the subject of the request.
If you designate an authorized agent to make an access, deletion, or opt-out of sale request on your behalf, we may require you to provide the authorized agent written permission to do so, and, for access and deletion requests, we may also require you to verify your own identity directly with us (as described above).
If we need or are required to contact you concerning any event that involves your information, we may do so by email, telephone, or mail
(vi) Response Timing and Format
We will make our best effort to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. Within ten (10) days of receiving the request, we will confirm receipt and provide information about its verification and processing of the request. We will maintain records of consumer requests made pursuant to the CCPA as well as our response to said requests for a period of at least twenty-four (24) months.
California’s “Shine The Light” law.
California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as the “Shine The Light” law, permits our users who are California residents to request and obtain from us, once a year and free of charge, information about categories of personal information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes and the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared personal information in the immediately preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to us using the contact information provided below. However, please be aware that we do not share non-aggregated information with third parties for marketing purposes.
