We may disclose your Personal Information to another entity for a business purpose (as that term is defined under the California Privacy Laws) including using Personal Information for our or our business partners’ or service providers’ operational purposes, or other notified purposes, in a manner that is reasonably necessary and proportional to achieve the operational purpose for which the Personal Information was collected or processed or for another operational purpose that is compatible with the context in which the Personal Information is or was collected.

In the preceding twelve (12) months, we have generally disclosed the following categories of Personal Information for a business purpose. We may disclose all or some of these categories with regard to a particular California Consumer:

  • Protected classification characteristics under California or federal law
  • Commercial information

We do not sell your Personal Information. However, pursuant to the definition of “sell” under the CCPA, which includes selling, renting, releasing, disclosing, disseminating, making available, transferring or otherwise communicating Personal Information for monetary or other valuable consideration, we may “sell” your Personal Information in exchange for services, insights, or other valuable consideration. In the preceding twelve (12) months, we have generally disclosed all or some of the following categories of Personal Information for value, unless the California Consumer has opted out of such exchange:

  • Identifiers
  • Personal Information categories listed in Cal. Civ. Code § 1798.80(e)
  • Protected classification characteristics under California or federal law


If you are a California resident and your Personal Information is subject to the California Privacy Laws, you may request (though not more than two times within any 12-month period) that we disclose certain and specific information to you about our collection and use of your Personal Information over the preceding twelve (12) months. You may also request that we not “sell” Your Personal Information to third parties, as that term is defined under the CCPA, also known as Your right to “opt out”.

You can exercise Your right to request information or to opt out by emailing us at Your request to opt out must clearly state Your intent to opt-out of the “sale” of your Personal Information. Your request for information must be a “verifiable consumer request”. Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State who You authorize to act on Your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your Personal Information. A “verifiable consumer request,” as that term is used under the CCPA, must do all of the following:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us, or a third-party whose services we engage for this purpose, to reasonably verify the request was submitted by either (i) you, the person about whom we collected Personal Information; or (ii) your authorized representative.
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate and respond to it.
  • We cannot respond to your request if we cannot verify your identity or verify you are authorized to make the request on behalf of a California Consumer who is authorized to receive this information, and confirm the Personal Information relates to you. We will only use Personal Information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

We will endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time, we will notify you in writing. We will deliver our written response by mail or email, at your option. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the twelve-month period preceding the date we receive your verifiable consumer request. If we cannot comply with a request, our response will explain the reasons. 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.

You may also request that we delete any of your Personal Information that we have collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. We are not required to comply with deletion requests if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers 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, 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.
  • Debut products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
  • Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
  • Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act.
  • Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.
  • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
  • Comply with a legal obligation.
  • Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.


We reserve the right to amend this privacy statement at our discretion and at any time. When we make changes to this privacy statement, we will notify you through a notice on our website homepage or via email.
