9. What are my rights as a California resident?
The state of California provides its residents with certain rights concerning their Personal Information. This section describes how you may exercise your rights for the Personal Information that we collect.
- Categories of Personal Information Subject to California Privacy Rights
In accordance with California law, we collected the following categories of Personal Information within the preceding 12 months:
- Identifiers (for example, name, email address, and IP address);
- Geolocation data such as the precise GPS coordinates of a mobile device;
- Certain categories of Personal Information described in subdivision (e) of California Civil Code Section 1798.80;
- Internet or other electronic network activity information, including information on your usage of our Website (“Usage Information”);
- Information used to create a profile about a consumer reflecting the consumer’s preferences or behavior;
- Electronic, audio, visual, thermal, olfactory, or similar information;
- Commercial information, including records of products or services purchased or other purchasing histories; and
- Professional or employment-related information.
We share each of these categories of Personal Information with our service providers to the extent necessary to provide their services and as otherwise described in Section 7, above. Additionally, within the past 12 months, some online advertisers may have used and disclosed Usage Information collected automatically from our Services. This may be a “sale” as broadly defined under the CCPA. Therefore we provide you with right to opt out of this “sale” of Personal Information as described below.
- Your California Privacy Rights
In accordance with California law, California consumers may exercise the following rights with respect to their Personal Information:
|Access||You have the right to request information on the categories of Personal Information that we collected in the previous twelve (12) months, the categories of sources from which the Personal Information was collected, the specific pieces of Personal Information we have collected about you, and the business purposes for which such Personal Information is collected and shared. You also have the right to request information on the categories of Personal Information which were disclosed for business purposes, and the categories of third parties in the twelve (12) months preceding your request for your Personal Information.|
|Data Portability||You may have the right to receive the Personal Information you have previously provided to us.|
|Erasure||You have a right to request to have your Personal Information deleted from our servers and we will direct our service providers to do the same. However, please be aware that we may not fulfill your request for deletion if we (or our service provider(s)) are required to retain your Personal Information for one or more of the following categories of purposes: (1) to complete a transaction for which the Personal Information was collected, provide a good or service requested by you, or complete a contract between us and you; (2) to ensure our website integrity, security, and functionality; (3) to comply with applicable law or a legal obligation, or exercise rights under the law; (4) to otherwise use your Personal Information, internally, in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which you provided the information.|
|Right to Opt-Out||You may have a right to opt-out of certain disclosures of Personal Information to third parties, if such disclosures constitute a “sale” under California law. As noted above, in the past twelve (12) months we enabled advertisers to collect certain information from the Site, which the advertisers may use to improve their interest-based advertising networks. Regardless of whether this is a “sale,” you may opt-out of interest-based advertising as described in Section 3(B), above.|
If you would like to exercise your rights listed above, please send (or have your authorized agent send) an email to email@example.com. When contacting us to exercise your rights, please use the following guidelines:

- Help Us Verify Your Identity: Provide us with information to verify your identify. For example, provide us (at a minimum) your phone number or email address. If your phone number or email address appears in our records, we may contact you to help confirm that you are making the request. Please note that if we cannot initially verify your identity, we may request additional information to complete the verification process. Any Personal Information you provide to us to help verify your identity will only be used for verification.
