In order to make a request for disclosure California residents may contact us by emailing us at You are required to provide information that allows us to reasonably verify your identity (that you are the person about whom we collected personal information) and will use that information only for that purpose. We may request that you submit a signed statement under penalty of perjury that you are the individual you claim to be.

We will acknowledge receipt of your Access, Correction or Deletion request within ten (10) days and will endeavor to respond within forty-five (45) days of receipt of your request, but if we require more time (up to an additional forty-five (45) days) we will notify you of our need for additional time. Please understand that we cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity and confirm that the personal information relates to you.

For requests for a copy of the personal information we have collected we will endeavor to provide the information in a format that is readily usable, including by mailing you a paper copy or providing an electronic copy to your registered account, if you have registered an account with us.

Opt-Out Rights.  To opt out of the sale of your personal information or the sharing of your personal information for cross-context behavioral marketing purposes or to ask us to limit processing of your Sensitive Personal Information, you  may submit a request to us by emailing us at We will comply with your request promptly, and at least within fifteen (15) business days. Once we receive your request we will wait at least twelve (12) months before asking you to reauthorize personal information sales or sharing.

You may also opt out by activating a user-enabled global privacy control, such as a browser plug-in or privacy setting, device setting, or other mechanism, that communicates or signals your choice to opt-out of the sale and sharing of personal information. When we receive such a signal, we will stop setting third party, analytics, or advertising partner cookies on your browser. This will prevent the sale or sharing of information relating to that specific device through cookies to our advertising or analytics partners. This option does not stop all sales or sharing of your information because we cannot match your device’s identification or internet protocol address with your personally identifiable information like your name, phone number, email address or ZIP Code.  If you delete cookies on your browser, any prior do not sell or do not share signal is also deleted and you should make sure that your user-enabled setting is always activated.

Retention of Personal Information

We will store personal information in a form which permits us to identify consumers, for as long as necessary for the purpose for which the personal information is processed.  We may retain and use such personal information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements and rights, or if it is not technically reasonably feasible to remove it.
