California Privacy Rights

Pursuant to California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”), residents of the State of California have the right to request from companies conducting business in California certain information regarding such business’ disclosure within the immediately preceding calendar year of that California resident’s Personal Information to third parties (and in some cases affiliates) for their direct marketing purposes. Alternatively, the law provides that a company may comply, as we do, by disclosing in its privacy policy that it provides consumers choice (opt-out or opt-in) regarding sharing Personal Information with third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes, and information on how to exercise that choice. At this time, we do not share Personal Information with third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes. However, if we do so in the future, we will provide you with a choice prior to sharing your Personal Information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes. If you do not opt-in or if you do not choose to opt-out at the time offers that choice, we will not share your information with that identified third party for its direct marketing purposes.

In addition, if you are a California resident, you have the right to delete the Personal Information we have collected from you.

If you are a California resident who would like information on how to exercise your rights concerning third party disclosures or the deletion of your Personal Information, you may send an email to this address

In the request, please specify which right you are seeking to exercise and the scope of the request. We will confirm receipt of your request within 10 days.

We have a duty as the holder of certain Personal Information to verify your identity when making requests to know or delete Personal Information and to ensure that dissemination of that information would not cause harm to you if it were distributed to another person. To verify your identity, we will request and collect additional Personal Information from you to match it against our records. We may ask for additional information or documentation if we feel it is necessary to confirm your identity with the necessary degree of certainty. We may communicate with you through email, a secure message center, or other reasonably necessary and appropriate means. We do have the right to deny requests under certain circumstances. In such cases, we will notify you of the reasons for denial. We will not provide you with specific pieces of Personal Information if the disclosure creates a substantial, articulable, and unreasonable risk to the security of that Personal Information, your account with us, or the security of our systems or networks. In no event will we disclose, if we have collected it, your Social Security number, driver’s license number or other government-issued identification number, financial account number, any health insurance or medical identification number, an account password, or security questions and answers.
