California Consumer Privacy Act
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) gives California consumers enhanced rights with respect to their personal information that is collected by businesses that operate in California. The CCPA provides California consumers with three rights regarding their personal information.
First, California consumers can opt out of the sale of their personal Information. However, we do not sell your personal information.
Second, California consumers can request to know:
- What specific pieces of information a business has collected about the consumer;
- Categories of personal information it has collected about the consumer;
- Categories of sources from which the personal information is collected;
- Categories of personal information that the business sold or disclosed for a business purpose about the consumer;
- Categories of third parties to whom the personal information was sold or disclosed for a business purpose; and
- The business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling personal information.
Third, California consumers can request that a business delete personal information about the consumer that a business has collected from the consumer.
Although we are not yet a covered business under the CCPA, we have taken steps to comply with the CCPA regarding our collecting and processing of personal information of California consumers. The CCPA also prohibits covered businesses from providing discriminatory treatment to California consumers if they exercise their rights under the CCPA.

Alternatively, you can submit a “Request to Know” or “Request to Delete” directly to us via email at email@example.com.

Before responding, we must verify that the person making the request is the person about whom we have collected their personal information. We may ask you to provide certain, limited personal information, such as your name and email address to verify and match your identity with our records and systems. If you have an account with us, we may ask that you verify your identity through our account authentication process. This is also to protect against fraud. We will not retain this personal information or use it for any other purpose. Also please be advised that we need to search our records and systems only for the preceding 12 months. There may be cases where we do not have any personal information about you, or we are not able to verify your identity for matching purposes. Deleting your personal information may result in the closing of your account and inability to access the Services. However, you can always re-register at any time. (Residents of Nevada and other states may also have similar rights to request information about or delete their personal information.)
