Your Privacy Rights and Choices Related to CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS
Under the California Consumer Privacy Act, California residents have specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes the rights of California residents greater detail below. (To exercise these rights, please see the Exercising Your Rights Related to CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS section.)
Right to Access to Specific Information. You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will disclose to you:
- The categories of personal information we collected about you.
- The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you.
- Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information.
- The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information.
- The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also called a data portability request).
- If we sold your personal information, we will disclose what categories of personal information the recipient obtained.
- If we disclosed your personal information for a business purpose, we will identify the type of recipient, as well as the categories of personal information the recipient obtained.
Right to Request Deletion of Information. You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:
- Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, fulfill the terms of a written warranty or product recall conducted in accordance with federal law, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
- Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
- Comply with a legal obligation.
- Make any other internal and/or lawful uses of that information.
Right to Non-Discrimination
We will not discriminate against you because you exercised your California Consumer Privacy Act rights. However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by law that can result in different prices, rates, or discounts if you provide certain pieces of information such as an email address. Any 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.
Right to Opt Out of Sales
If you are 16 years of age or older, you have the right to direct us to not sell your personal information at any time (the "right to opt-out"). Again, please note we do not sell any personal information regardless of age for monetary compensation, but may share the information as discussed in the Selling and/or Sharing Personal Information section. We do not sell or share the personal information of consumers we actually know are less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the "right to opt-in") from either the consumer who is at least 13 but not yet 16 years of age, or the parent or guardian of a consumer less than 13 years of age. Consumers who opt-in to personal information sales may opt-out of future sales at any time.
Exercising Personal Information Rights Related to CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS
If you are a California resident, in order to exercise your right to access specific information or your right to request deletion of information, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:
- Clicking on the following link and completing the Data Request form
- Calling us at: +1 (888) 914-9661, PIN: 697 285
Only you, or your legally authorized agent, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information or the information of your minor child.

You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
- Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative, which includes:
- Verifying the email address provided in the Data Request form.
- Verifying your password protected account information through an already established account you have with our Sites.
- Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, assess, 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.
Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us.
We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.
If you are a California resident, in order to exercise your right to opt out of sales, you or your authorized agent may submit a request to us by clicking on the following link "Do Not Sell My Personal Information" and completing the form and checking the appropriate boxes.
Once you make an opt-out request, we will wait at least twelve (12) months before asking you to reauthorize personal information sales. However, you may change your mind and opt back in to personal information sales at any time.
You do not need to create an account with us to exercise your sales opt-out rights. We will only use personal information provided in an opt-out request to review and comply with the request.
Please note that by submitting this request to opt out of sales, we may be unable to provide you with any of the services listed in the Selling and/or Sharing Personal Information section above.
