Disclosing your personal information

We may disclose your personal information for the same reasons that we may use it as described in this Policy. To carry out such purposes, we may disclose your personal information to our customers, clients, and affiliates. We occasionally hire service providers and contractors to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, hosting websites, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose.
We may also transfer and disclose your personal information to third parties to comply with law enforcement, governmental mandate, or other legal requirement; when it is necessary for us to provide it to our attorneys, accountants, regulators, auditors or other advisors; when we believe in good faith that the law requires or permits it; at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation; to respond to an emergency; or otherwise to protect the rights, property, safety, or security of third parties, visitors to our Site, as determined in our sole discretion or as permitted by applicable law.
Lastly, as we continue to develop our business, if another entity acquires us or all or substantially all of our assets, or assets related to the Site, in connection with a merger into another entity or any consolidation, share exchange, combination, reorganization, or like transaction, personal information that we have collected about the users of the Site may be disclosed to such entity as part of the due diligence process and will be transferred to such entity as one of the transferred assets. Also, if any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding is brought by or against us, all such information may be considered an asset of ours and as such may be sold or transferred to third parties.
Security of your personal information
We are committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of commercially reasonable security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access, which are located in controlled facilities.
If a password is used to help protect your accounts and personal information, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. Do not share this information with anyone. If you are sharing a computer with anyone, you should always choose to log out before leaving a site or service to protect access to your information from subsequent users.
Retention of Personal Information
We will retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes described in the “Use of Personal Information” section above, unless otherwise required by applicable laws. We may retain your personal information for longer if it is necessary to comply with our legal or reporting obligations, resolve disputes, collect fees, maintain our relationship with you. We may also retain it if we have an obligation to a third party that involves your information, our retention or recordkeeping policies and obligations dictate that we retain your information, we have an interest in providing you with information about our products or services, or we have another legitimate business purpose for retaining your information. To determine the appropriate retention period for your personal information, we consider various factors such as the amount, nature, and sensitivity of your information, the potential risk of unauthorized access, use or disclosure, the purposes for which we process your personal information, and applicable legal requirements.

Our Site may offer social media buttons that offer certain interactive features. We and the respective social media company track your interactions with these functions. Additionally, even if you do not choose to use these plug-ins, the relevant company may still collect certain tracking information about you and share it with us .
Do Not Track
“Do Not Track” is a privacy preference that you can set in your Internet search browser that sends a signal to a website that you do not want the website operator to track certain browsing information about you. However, because our Site is not configured to detect Do Not Track signals from a user’s computer, we are unable to respond to Do Not Track requests.

Our Site and Children
Our Site is not directed to children under the age of 13 and we do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from children under the age of 13. If the parent or guardian of a child under 13 believes a child has provided us with any personal information, the parent or guardian of that child should contact us and ask to have this information deleted from our files. If we otherwise obtain knowledge that we have personal information about a child under the age of 13 in our files, we will delete that information from our existing files so that it is not in retrievable form.

- a) The categories of personal information we have collected about you.
- b) The categories of sources from which the personal information was collected.

Right to Request Correction
You have the right to request that we correct any incorrect personal information that we collect or retain about you, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see below), we will correct (and direct any of our service providers and contractors that hold your data on our behalf to correct) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights.
Exercising Your Rights under CCPA
If you wish to exercise your rights under California law, please do not hesitate to contact us at:
Phone: (800) 893-9698 ext. 1225
You may authorize a natural person, or a business registered with the California Secretary of State to act on your behalf with respect to the right under this CA Addendum. When you submit a Request to Know or a Request to Delete, unless you have provided the authorized agent with a qualifying power of attorney, you must provide your authorized agent written permission (signed by you) to act on your behalf and verify the authorized agent’s identity with us. We reserve the right to deny requests from persons or businesses claiming to be authorized agents that do not submit sufficient proof of their authorization.
We reserve the right to only respond to verifiable consumer requests. A verifiable consumer request is one made by any individual who is:
- the consumer who is the subject of the request,
- a consumer on behalf of the consumer’s minor child, or
- by a natural person or person registered with the Secretary of State authorized to act on behalf of a consumer.
If we request, you must provide us with sufficient information to verify your identity and/or authority to act on behalf of a Consumer. In general, we may ask you to provide identifying information that we already maintain about you or we may use a third-party verification service. In either event, we will try to avoid asking you for sensitive personal information to verify your identity. We may not be able to 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. However, making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us.
Additionally, you will need to describe your request with sufficient detail to allow us to review, understand, assess, and respond. We will not use the personal information we collect from an individual to determine a verifiable request for any other purpose, except as required by law.
We reserve the right to charge a fee to process or respond to your request if it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that a request warrants a fee, we will attempt to notify you as to why we made that decision and provide a cost estimate before completing your request.
We will attempt to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of receipt, but we may require up to ninety (90) days to respond, under which circumstances we will notify you of the need for an extension.
If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the receipt of your verifiable consumer request. With respect to Personal Information collected on and after January 1, 2022, and to the extent expressly permitted by applicable regulation, you may request that such disclosures cover a period beyond the 12 months referenced above, provided doing so would not be impossible or require a disproportionate effort by us. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. To the extent permitted by the CCPA, we will respond to no more than two requests during any 12-month period.
Persons with disabilities may obtain this notice in alternative format upon request using the contact information above.
