YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS
This section applies to you if you are a resident of the state of California. For purposes of this section, “personal information” has the meaning provided by the California Consumer Privacy Act (the “CCPA”) and does not include information that is publicly available, that is de-identified or aggregated such that it is not capable of being associated with an identifiable consumer or device, or that is excluded from the CCPA’s scope.
Residents of California may be entitled to certain rights with respect to personal information that we have collected about them under the CCPA:
- Right to Know. You have the right to request to know more about the specific pieces or categories of personal information we have collected, the categories of data sources, and the categories of third parties with whom we have shared the personal information for a business or commercial purpose in the last 12 months.
- Right to Request Deletion. You have the right to request the deletion of personal information that we have collected from you, subject to certain exceptions.
- Right to Opt Out of Personal Information Sales. You have the right to direct us not to sell (as such term is defined by the CCPA) personal information we have collected about you to third parties.
- Right against Discrimination. You also have the right to be free of discrimination for exercising these rights. However, please note that if the exercise of these rights limits our ability to process personal information (such as in the case of a deletion request), we may no longer be able to provide you the Service or engage with you in the same manner.
To request to exercise your right to know and/or right to deletion, please submit a request by contacting us. with the subject line, “California Rights Request.” We will need to verify your identity before processing your request, which may require us to request additional personal information from you or require you to log into your account if you have one. In certain circumstances, we may decline or limit your request, particularly where we are unable to verify your identity or locate your information in our systems, or as permitted by law.
We do not “sell” personal information to third parties without consent, however, we do allow certain third-party advertising networks and other third-party businesses to collect your personal information directly from your browser or device through cookies and related technologies for advertising, attribution, analytics, and research purposes. These third parties may use such personal information for their own purposes in accordance with their own privacy statements, which may include reselling this information to additional third parties.
You may also have certain rights under California Civil Code Section §1798.83 (“Shine the Light”) with respect to the disclosure of your personal information to third parties. We do not share your personal information with third parties for direct marketing purposes without consent.
THIRD PARTY TRACKING AND ONLINE ADVERTISING
We participate in interest-based advertising and use third-party advertising companies to serve you targeted advertisements based on your online browsing history and your interests. We permit third party online advertising networks, social media companies, and other third-party services, to collect, information about your use of our Service over time so that they may play or display ads on our Service, on other websites, apps, or services you may use, and on other devices, you may use. Typically, though not always, the information used for interest-based advertising is collected through cookies or similar tracking technologies. We may share a common account identifier (such as an email address or user ID) or hashed data with our third-party advertising partners to help identify you across devices. We and our third-party partners use this information to make the advertisements you see online more relevant to your interests, as well as to provide advertising-related services such as reporting, attribution, analytics, and market research.
To learn more about interest-based advertising and how you may be able to opt-out of some of this advertising, you may wish to visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s online resources, at http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices, and/or the DAA’s resources at www.aboutads.info/choices. You may also be able to set your browser to delete or notify you of cookies by actively managing the settings on your browser or mobile device.

Furthermore, if you use a different device, change browsers or delete the opt-out cookies, you may need to perform the opt-out task again.
You may also be able to limit certain interest-based mobile advertising through the settings on your mobile device by selecting “limit ad tracking” (iOS) or “opt-out of interest-based ads” (Android).
