Notice to California Residents

We are required by the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) to provide this CCPA notice (“CCPA Notice”) to California residents to explain how we collect, use, and share their personal information, and the rights and choices we offer California residents regarding our handling of their personal information.

CCPA Scope and Exclusions. This CCPA Notice, including the description ofour Privacy Practices and your Privacy Rights below, apply only to California residents whose interactions with us are limited to:

visiting our consumer websites or otherwise communicating with us;

signing up for email alerts;

requesting or purchasing merchandise from us; or

applying for our job openings on our websites (however, note that the CCPA limits some of the privacy rights for job applicants).

This CCPA Notice does not apply to the personal information we collect, use, or disclose about:

  • consumers who initiate or complete the process of applying for financial products or services. This is because this information is subject to the federal Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and implementing regulations, or the California Financial Information Privacy Act; or
  • representatives of businesses that seek to obtain our products or services, or to provide products or services to us.
Privacy Practices. Like many companies, we may use third-party cookies for our advertising purposes. If you would like to learn how you may opt out of our (and our third-party advertising partners’) use of cookies and other tracking technologies, please review the instructions provided in the Online Tracking Opt-Out Guide section above.
Privacy Rights. The CCPA grants individuals the following rights:

Information. You can request information about how we have collected, used and shared your personal information during the past 12 months. For details about the personal information, we have collected over the last 12 months, including the categories of sources, please see the What We Collect section above. We collect this information for the business and commercial purposes described in the How We Use Information section above. We share this information with the categories of third parties described in the How We Share and Disclose Information section above.

Access. You can request a copy of the personal information that we maintain about you.

Deletion. You can ask us to delete the personal information that we collected or maintain about you.

Please note that the CCPA limits these rights by, for example, prohibiting us from providing certain sensitive information in response to an access request and limiting the circumstances in which we must comply with a deletion request.
How to Submit a Request. If you would like to submit a request for information, access, or deletion, please contact [].
Identity Verification. The CCPA requires us to verify the identity of the individual submitting a request to access or delete personal information before providing a substantive response to the request. You may only make a verifiable request for access twice within a 12-month period. We will ask you to verify your identity when you submit a request. We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable request does not require you to create an account with us.
Authorized Agents. California residents can empower an “authorized agent” to submit requests on their behalf. We will require the authorized agent to have a written authorization confirming that authority.

Although we do not sell personal information, like most websites, we use cookies and other online tracking technologies on our websites. You may limit our use of online tracking technologies as described in the Online Tracking Opt-Out Guide section above.
