This Privacy Notice describes how we collect, use, disclose, and otherwise process personal information of individual residents of the State of California, either online or offline, within the scope of the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) as amended by the California Privacy Rights Act.
Under the CCPA, “personal information” is information that identifies, relates to, or could reasonably be linked with a particular California resident or household. Personal information does not include publicly available information that is from federal, state, or local government records, such as professional licenses and public real estate/property records. The definition of publicly available information also includes information that a business has a reasonable basis to believe is lawfully made available to the general public by the consumer or from widely distributed media, or certain information disclosed by a consumer and made available if the consumer has not restricted the information to a specific audience. The CCPA also exempts certain types of information such as certain medical information and consumer credit reporting information.
We collect personal information from and about consumers for a variety of purposes. The personal information that we collect about a specific California consumer will depend on, for example, our relationship or interaction with that individual.
We collect this information from a variety of sources including, but not limited to:
We may collect, use, or disclose personal information about you for one or more of the following purposes:
You also have the right to limit the sensitive personal information about you to only that which is necessary to provide the goods or perform the services reasonably expected by an average consumer who requests those goods or services. You can limit our use and disclosure of your sensitive personal information by following the directions provided under “How to Exercise Your Privacy Rights” below.
We do not rent, sell, or share your personal information with non-affiliated companies for their direct marketing purposes, unless we have your permission. We have no actual knowledge that we sell or share personal information of California consumers 16 years of age and younger.

In addition, you have the right to be free from discrimination by a business for exercising your CCPA privacy rights.
There may be information we will not return in response to your access request, such as information that would affect the privacy of others or interfere with legal requirements. Similarly, there may be reasons why we cannot comply with your deletion request, such as the need to keep your personal information in order to provide you service or to fulfill a legal obligation. Additionally, in certain circumstances, we may not collect sufficient identifiers to match information in our records with your request.
To submit a request to exercise one of the privacy rights identified above, please submit a request by:
Only the California consumer, or a person that is authorized to act on your behalf, may make a request related to your personal information. In any of these cases, the request must be verifiable before we can fulfill such request. Verifying a request will require sufficient information for us to reasonably verify your identity or that an individual is a person authorized to act on the California consumer’s behalf.
In certain circumstances, you are permitted to use an authorized agent (as that term is defined by the CCPA) to submit requests on your behalf through the designated methods set forth in this Privacy Notice where we can verify the authorized agent’s authority to act on your behalf.
For requests to know, delete, or correct personal information, we require the following for verification purposes:
For requests to opt-out of personal information “sales” or “sharing”, as those terms are defined in the CCPA, we require a signed permission demonstrating your authorized agent has been authorized by you to act on your behalf.
We may update this Privacy Notice from time to time. When we make changes to this Privacy Notice, we will change the “Last Updated” date at the beginning of this Privacy Notice. All changes shall be effective from the date last updated unless otherwise stated.
