California Consumer Privacy Act
The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) provides California residents with rights to receive certain disclosures regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of information about them, as well as rights to know/access, delete, and limit “sales” of personal information. The CCPA defines “Personal Information” to mean “information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household.” You have the right to be free from discrimination based on your exercise of your CCPA rights. To the extent that we collect personal information that is subject to the CCPA, that information, our practices, and your rights are described below.
Notice at Collection Regarding the Categories of Personal Information Collected
You have the right to receive notice of the categories of personal information we collect and the purposes for which we use personal information. The following table summarizes the categories of personal information we collect, the categories of sources of that information, and whether we disclose or sell that information to service providers or third parties, respectively. The categories we use to describe personal information are those enumerated in the CCPA. We collect this personal information for the purposes described in “how we use information.”
The Right to Access
You have the right to request any or all the PI we have collected and disclosed in the last 12 months. Note that your right to receive PI is limited to twice in a 12-month period.
The Right to Request Deletion
You have the right to request the deletion of PI we have collected from you, subject to certain exceptions.
The Right to Opt-Out of Sales
You have the right to direct us not to “sell” PI we have collected about you to third parties now or in the future (as such term “sale” is broadly defined under the CCPA, which includes disclosures to third parties for both monetary and non-monetary consideration).
We do not have actual knowledge of “selling” PI of consumers under sixteen (16) years of age.
The Right to Non-Discrimination
You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment for exercising these rights. However, please note that if the exercise of these rights limits our ability to process PI (such as in the case of a deletion request), we may no longer be able to provide you our products and services or engage with you in the same manner.

We may offer you financial incentives for the collection, sale, retention, and use of your PI as permitted by the CCPA that can, without limitation, result in reasonably different prices, rates, or quality levels.

We may add or change incentive programs, and/or their terms by posting notice on the program descriptions and terms linked to above, so check them regularly.
Each financial incentive or price or service difference related to the collection and use of personal information is based upon our reasonable, good-faith determination of the estimated value of such information to our business, taking into consideration the value of the offer itself and the anticipated revenue generation that may be realized by rewarding brand loyalty. We calculate the value of the offer and financial incentive by using the expense related to the offer.
