What is Personal Information?

It does not include publicly available information or information that has been aggregated or deidentified and that is maintained in a form that is not capable of being associated with or reasonably linked to an individual person.

In the last 12 months, we have not made personal information available to third parties for monetary or other valuable considerations. Some personal data may have been made available to the identified services in this disclosure as part of the limited integration with such services on our website.
We do not sell personal information that we collect or process.
Note about “Sales”: We do not “sell” personal information as most people would typically understand that term. However, we do allow certain third-party partners and providers to collect information about consumers directly through our Services for purposes of analyzing and optimizing our Services and ads, providing content and ads that are more relevant, measuring statistics and the success of ad campaigns, and detecting and reporting fraud. To the extent this practice is interpreted to constitute a “sale” under the CCPA, please see “To Exercise Your Right to Opt-Out of Personal Information Sales” section below.
- Affiliates: we may share personal information with our corporate affiliates, parent(s), or subsidiaries.
- Service Providers: many of our service providers are located in the United States. We do not authorize service providers to use or disclose information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or comply with legal requirements.
- Legal: We may disclose personal information (1) if we are required to do so by law or legal process (such as a court order or subpoena); (2) in response to requests by government agencies, such as law enforcement authorities, or where a referral to any appropriate local authority is required by law; (3) to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights; (4) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical or other harm or financial loss; (5) in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity; or (6) as directed by your legal or authorized representative, where applicable
Please contact us if you would like to obtain more information about the third parties with whom we may share personal information.

How to Exercise Your California Privacy Rights
To Exercise Your Right to Know or Right to Deletion
To exercise your right to know and/or right to deletion, please submit a request to email@example.com or by calling 800-919-6776. In compliance with CCPA we will require certain identifying information from you to verify your request. We will make our best efforts to respond to your valid request within 45 days from the receipt. We will need to verify your identity in order to respond to your request, which may involve confirming your California residency and/or reviewing your government identification. If you do not verify your identity, we cannot respond to your request. In some instances, we may be required to continue to retain or share portions of your personal data to comply with regulatory or legal obligations.
Although we try to limit the personal information collected in connection with a request to exercise the right to know and/or the right to deletion to that personal information, certain requests may require us to obtain additional personal information from you. In certain circumstances, we may decline a request to exercise the right to know and/or right to deletion, particularly where we are unable to verify your identity.
