California residents may opt out of the “sale” of their personal information under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). Under the CCPA, a sale is defined such that it may include allowing third parties to receive certain information, such as cookies, IP address, and/or browsing behavior, to deliver targeted advertising on the Services or other services. Advertising, including targeted advertising, enables us to provide you certain content for free and allows us to provide you offers relevant to you.
This site allows third parties to collect certain of your information to help provide more relevant advertising and to provide you with offers and promotions and opportunities that may be of interest to you. Depending on what Services you use, third parties may collect the following categories of personal information for these purposes:
- For online targeted advertising purposes: demographic and statistical information, user-generated content, device information and identifiers, browser and usage data, geolocation, and social media information.
- For sharing with third parties to send you relevant offers, products, promotions and opportunities: contact and registration information, demographic and statistical information, employment and education data, user-generated content, device information and identifiers, and geolocation.
If you would like to opt out of our use of your information for such purposes that may considered a “sale” under California law, you may do so as outlined in the section below entitled “Opting Out of The Sale of Information.” You can also submit a sale opt-out request by emailing us at the email address below.
