The law also permits us to retain specific information for our exclusively internal use, but only in ways that are compatible with the context in which you provided the information to us or that are reasonably aligned with your expectations based on your relationship with us.

 
Your Right to Ask Us Not to Sell Personal Information We Have Collected About You

California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as the “Shine the Light” law, permits California residents to annually request, free of charge, information about the Personal Information (if any) disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. While we may use Personal Information to market third party products and services we believe may be of interest to our customers, we do not share Personal Information with third parties for their own marketing purposes.

 
Our Commitment to Honoring Your Rights
 

If you exercise any of the rights explained in this Privacy Notice, we will continue to treat you fairly. If you exercise your rights under this Privacy Notice, you will not be denied or charged different prices or rates for goods or services, or provided a different level or quality of goods or services than others.

 
Exercising Your Rights and How We Will Respond
 

To exercise your access or deletion rights, or to ask a question, contact us 1-844-991-0269 or click here.

You can direct us not to sell your Personal Information below.

We will act on your request within the timeframes set forth below.

For requests for access or deletion, we will first acknowledge receipt of your request within 10 business days of receipt of your request. We will then provide a substantive response to your request as soon as we can, generally within 45 days from when we receive your request, although we may be allowed to take longer to process your request in certain jurisdictions or under certain circumstances.

For requests to stop the sale of your Personal Information, we will comply no later than 15 business days after receipt of your request.

If we expect your request is going to take us longer than normal to fulfill, we will let you know.

We usually act on requests and provide information free of charge, but we may charge a reasonable fee to cover our administrative costs of providing the information in certain situations.

In some cases, the law may allow us to refuse to act on certain requests. When this is the case, we will endeavor to provide you with an explanation as to why.

Verification of Identity – Access or Deletion Requests

We will ask you for two pieces of Personal Information and attempt to match those to information that we maintain about you.

If we are unable to verify your identity with the degree of certainty required, we will not be able to respond to the request. We will notify you to explain the basis of the denial.

Authorized Agents

You may designate an agent to submit requests on your behalf. The agent can be a natural person or a business entity that is registered with the California Secretary of State.

If you would like to designate an agent to act on your behalf, you and the agent will need to comply with our verification process:

  • Requests to Know or Delete Personal Information:

    If the agent submits requests to access, know or delete your Personal Information, the agent will need to provide us with your signed permission indicating the agent has been authorized to submit the opt-out request on your behalf. We will also require that you verify your identity directly with us or confirm with us that you provided the agent with permission to submit the request.

  • Requests to Opt Out of Sale:

    If the agent submits a request to opt out of the sale of your Personal Information, the agent will need to provide us with your signed permission indicating the agent has been authorized to submit the opt-out request on your behalf.

Please note that this subsection does not apply when an agent is authorized to act on your behalf pursuant to a valid power of attorney. Any such requests will be processed in accordance with California law pertaining to powers of attorney.

Requests for Household Information

There may be some types of Personal Information that can be associated with a household (a group of people living together in a single dwelling). Requests for access or deletion of household Personal Information must be made by each member of the household. We will verify each member of the household using the verification criteria explained above.

If we are unable to verify the identity of each household member with the degree of certainty required, we will not be able to respond to the request. We will notify you to explain the basis of our denial.

Do Not Track Signals

“Do Not Track” is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers. We do not respond to browser or do not track signals.

Personal Information of Minors

Our products and Services are not directed to minors under the age of 18 and we do not knowingly collect or sell the Personal Information of minors.

How We Keep Your Personal Information Secure

We implement and maintain reasonable security appropriate to the nature of the personal information that we collect, use, retain, transfer or otherwise process. Our reasonable security program is implemented and maintained in accordance with applicable law and relevant standards. However, there is no perfect security, and reasonable security is a process that involves risk management rather than risk elimination. While we are committed to developing, implementing, maintaining, monitoring, and updating a reasonable information security program, no such program can be perfect; in other words, all risk cannot reasonably be eliminated. Data security incidents and breaches can occur due to vulnerabilities, criminal exploits or other factors that cannot reasonably be prevented. Accordingly, while our reasonable security program is designed to manage data security risks and thus help prevent data security incidents and breaches, it cannot be assumed that the occurrence of any given incident or breach results from our failure to implement and maintain reasonable security.

Changes to This Notice

We will review and update this Notice as required to keep current with rules and regulations, new technologies and security standards. We will post those changes on the website or update the Privacy Notice modification date below. In certain cases, and if the changes are material, you will be notified via email or a notice on our website.

Accessibility

We are committed to ensuring that our communications are accessible to people with disabilities. To make accessibility-related requests or report barriers, please contact us at [email protected].
