Privacy Policy

We’ve updated our privacy policy effective January 1, 2020

We’re always working to ensure that you know – and have meaningful control over – what data we collect, how it’s used, and when it’s shared.  As the regulations around data protection evolve, we have revised our Privacy Policy to give you the information you need to make informed decisions about that data you share with us.

Consumer Privacy Act (CPA) provides consumers with 4 Rights:

  1. The Right To Know
    • Companies must inform consumers, usually through a privacy policy, what personal information is collected, where it was acquired (e.g., through cookies, by request, etc.), what the information is used for, whether it is being shared with third parties, and to whom it is shared with.
  2. The Right to Opt Out 
    • Companies that provide consumer personal information to third parties must enable consumers to “opt out” of having her/his information transferred.
  3. The Right to Control and Be Forgotten 
    • Consumers must be able to request the deletion of their personal information.
  4. The Right to Exercise Privacy Rights without Prejudice 
    • Companies may not discriminate against consumers who exercise their rights under the CPA. That is, a company may not deny customers services, provide different goods or services, or charge customers different prices depending on whether they opt-out or otherwise take advantage of their rights under the CPA.
