This section applies only to California residents and supplements the information in this Privacy Policy.  It describes how we collect, use, sell, share, and retain personal information of California residents, and their rights with respect to that personal information.  For purposes of this Notice to California Residents, “personal information” has the meaning given in the California privacy laws, but does not include information exempted from the scope of those laws.

9.1 Personal Information Collected and Purposes of Collection and Use.  The categories of personal information we collect, or have collected in the 12 months preceding the “Last Updated” date of this Privacy Policy, and the sources of collection are listed in the section above titled “COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION.”  The purposes, including the specific business and commercial purposes, for which we collect and use these categories of personal information are described in our general Privacy Policy under the section titled “USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION.”  

To the extent we collect sensitive personal information, we only use or disclose it for purposes permitted under California law (e.g., to operate the Site and provide our services, detect security incidents and prevent fraud, and to verify and maintain the quality of the Site). We do not collect or use sensitive personal information for the purpose of inferring characteristics about California residents.

9.2 How Personal Information is Disclosed, “Sold,” or “Shared.”  Each of the categories of personal information listed in the “COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION” section above is disclosed for a business purpose to the parties identified in the section titled “DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION.” California law defines a “sale” as disclosing a California resident’s personal information to a third party for monetary or other valuable consideration.  Where such disclosure is for cross-context behavioral advertising, whether or not for monetary or other valuable consideration, it qualifies as “sharing” under California law.

The table below describes how we “sell” and “share” personal information.


Whether the category of personal information is “sold” or “shared” and to whom

A. Individual Identifiers and Demographic Information

Not sold or shared.

B. Commercial Information

Not sold or shared.

9.3 Retention of Personal Information.  We will retain each of the categories of personal information listed above for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose of collection, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements, to establish and defend legal claims, for fraud prevention purposes, or as long as required to meet our legal obligations.  To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

9.4 Your California Privacy Rights.  As a California resident, in addition to the rights described in the general Privacy Policy, you have the rights listed below.  However, these rights are not absolute, and in certain cases we may not be able to respond to your request, such as when a legal exemption applies or if we are not able to verify your identity.

  • Know/Access.  You can request the following information about how we have collected and used your personal information:
  • The categories of personal information that we have collected.
  • The categories of sources from which we collected personal information.
  • The business or commercial purpose for collecting, selling, or sharing personal information.
  • The categories of third parties with whom we disclose personal information.
  • A copy of the personal information that we have collected about you.
  • Delete.  You can ask us to delete the personal information that we have collected from you.

  • Opt-out of sales/sharing.  If we “sell” or “share” your personal information, you can opt-out.
  • Nondiscrimination.  You are entitled to exercise the rights described above without receiving discriminatory treatment.

9.5 How to Exercise Your California Privacy Rights.  You may request to exercise the California privacy rights described above as follows:

  • Right to know/access, delete, or correct.  You can request to exercise your know/access, deletion, or correction rights by:

We reserve the right to confirm your California residence to process your requests and will need to confirm your identity to process your requests to exercise your right to know/access, delete, and correct.  This is a security measure to, for example, help ensure we do not disclose information to a person who is not entitled to receive it.  The identity verification process may vary depending on how you submit your request.

Consistent with California law, you may designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf.  If you do so, we may require proof of your identification, the authorized agent’s proof of identification, and any other information that we may request in order to verify the request, including evidence of valid permission for the authorized agent to act on your behalf.  We cannot process your request if you do not provide us with sufficient detail to allow us to understand and respond to it.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights).   However, we may charge a reasonable fee or decline to comply with your request if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive, or excessive.


Nevada Revised Statutes Chapter 603A allows Nevada residents to opt-out of the “sale” of certain types of personal data.  Subject to several exceptions, Nevada law defines “sale” to mean the exchange of certain types of personal data for monetary consideration to another person.  We do not engage in any “sale” that would trigger these opt-out rights.
