Effective Date: July 25, 2020
This California Privacy Statement (“California Privacy Statement”) supplements the Privacy Statement and applies solely to visitors, users, and others who reside in the State of California (“consumers” or “you”). This California Privacy Statement is intended to comply with California privacy laws, including the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). Any terms defined in the CCPA and not defined in this statement will have the same meaning as provided in the CCPA.
Collection and Use of Personal Information
We collect information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household (“personal information”). In addition, we may collect data that is not identifiable to you or otherwise associated with you, such as aggregated data, and is not personal information. To the extent this information is stored or associated with personal information, it will be treated as personal information; otherwise, the information is not subject to this statement.
Sources of Personal Information
We collect personal information from and about you from the following sources:
Use of Personal Information
We collect and process your personal information for our business purposes, which include the following:
We will not use the personal information we collect for materially different, unrelated, or incompatible purposes without providing you with notice and obtaining your consent.
Sharing of Personal Information
We share personal information with the following categories of third parties:
Your California Privacy Rights
California Civil Code Section 1798.83, referred to as the “Shine the Light” law, permits our users who are California residents to request and obtain from us a list of what personal information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for their own direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year and the names and addresses of those third parties. Requests may be made only once per year per person, must be sent to the email address below, and are free of charge.
We do not disclose personal information protected under the “Shine the Light” law to third parties for their own direct marketing purposes.
In addition, the CCPA provides California residents with the following rights:
Some of our Services, however, may require your personal information. If you choose not to provide your personal information that is necessary to provide any aspect of our Services, you may not be able to use those Services. In addition, as described in the section captioned “Your Choices” in the “Privacy Statement” it is possible to change your browser settings to block the automatic collection of certain information.
Submitting a Verified Consumer Request
To exercise your Right to Know, Data Portability, and Right to Delete, you must provide us with sufficient information to allow us to verify your identity, and describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it. Once we receive the information you provide to us, we will review it and determine if more information is necessary to verify your identity as required by law, and we may request additional information in order to do so.
To exercise your California privacy rights described above, please submit a verifiable request to us by emailing us at [email protected] and note in the subject line: Exercise of California Privacy Rights.
Only you, or a person authorized by you to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information.
You may only make a verifiable consumer request for Right to Know or Data Portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
We may deny your request if we are unable to verify your identity or have reason to believe that the request is fraudulent.
Consumer Request by an Authorized Agent
If an authorized agent submits a consumer request on your behalf, in order to confirm that person or entity’s authority to act on your behalf and verify the authorized agent’s identity, we require an email be sent to [email protected], along with the items below:
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 only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the request’s identity or authority to make the request.
We will acknowledge receipt of the request within ten (10) days after we receive your request. We will respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days after we receive your request. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason why we need more time and how much more time we need in writing. We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the receipt of the verifiable consumer request. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For Data Portability requests, we will provide the responsive information in a portable and, to the extent technically feasible, in a readily usable format that allows you to transmit the information to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
Sale of Personal Information
We do not sell personal information to third parties for money. However, the CCPA defines “sale” broadly, and that definition could include information that we have shared with our service providers and certain technology providers. Our site is new and we have not collected any information in the past twelve months. Additionally, we do not and will not knowingly sell the personal information of minors under the age of 16 without affirmative authorization.
Do Not Track
We use analytics systems and providers and may choose to participate in ad networks that process personal information about your online activities over time and across third party websites or online services. We do not currently process or comply with any web browser’s “do not track” signal or other mechanisms that provide consumers with the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personal information about your online activities over time and across third party websites.
Modifications and Updates to this California Privacy Statement
We reserve the right, at any time, to modify, alter, and/or update this California Privacy Statement, and any such modifications, alterations, or updates will be effective upon our posting of the revised California Privacy Statement. Your continued use of the Services following our posting of any revised California Privacy Statement will constitute your acknowledgement of and agreement with the amended California Privacy Statement.
