To opt-out of other communications (e.g., postal marketing and telemarketing), please contact us as set forth in the “Contact Us” section below. Opting out of marketing communications does not opt you out of other, non-marketing communications from us.
Feedback. When you provide comments or feedback about our Sites or our products (“Feedback”), we will not treat that Feedback as confidential and we may use that Feedback for any purpose in our sole discretion so long as it does not personally identify you. Feedback will be used without attribution or compensation to you.
SOURCE 2: We Collect Personal Information Automatically.
We collect information automatically from you when you visit the Sites.
Cookies & Other Tracking Technologies.
What are cookies and web beacons / pixel tags? A cookie is a small text file that our Sites save onto your computer or device when you use the Sites that provides us certain information about your activities. Cookies allow the Sites to remember your actions and preferences and recognize you or your browser, along with some information you provided. Web beacons / pixel tags are small graphics on a webpage that monitor your activity when viewing a webpage.
- make our Sites function properly;
- provide personalized experiences;
- tailor our interactions with you;
- help with our marketing efforts;
- provide us with valuable data and statistics about the usage and effectiveness of our Sites and to help us improve our Sites; and
- help us improve our services.
What type of information do Cookies collect? The Cookies on our Sites may collect information such as:
- IP addresses assigned to the computers and other devices you use;
- your internet service provider;
- device ID number;
- approximate geographic location (e.g., zip code);
- browser type;
- Sites pages visited;
- websites you access before and after visiting the Sites; and
- data related to how and when you use the Sites.
We may combine information from Cookies with other Personal Information.
How long do Cookies last? A Cookie can either be a “session” Cookie or a “persistent” Cookie. Session Cookies exist only for so long as you are visiting the applicable Sites and are typically deleted when you exit your web browser. Persistent Cookies exist for a set period of time, for example, up to several months or years. Each time you visit a Sites that has implemented a persistent Cookie, the persistent Cookie is renewed and that Cookie will remain active until its predetermined expiration date. You can manually delete persistent Cookies through your browser settings.
First and Third-party Cookies. Cookies may either be “first-party” or “third-party” Cookies. A first-party Cookie allows your web browser to talk to the actual Sites that you are visiting (i.e. the Sites). A third-party Cookie allows your web browser to talk to a third-party website, such as the source of an ad that appears on the website you are visiting or a third-party analytics provider. We may not have control over how a third-party uses information collected through third-party Cookies.
How do you manage Cookies or opt-out? Most browsers automatically accept cookies. You can disable this function by changing your browser settings, but disabling cookies may impact your use and enjoyment of the Sites. Not all features or functions of the Sites may work properly if you disable Cookies. You cannot disable all Cookies, such as Cookies that are essential to the functioning of the Sites.
Google Analytics. We use Google Analytics to collect and process information about your use of the Sites. Google sets cookies on your browser or device, and then your web browser will automatically send information to Google. Google uses this information to provide us with reports that we use to better understand and measure how users interact with our Sites.
We may also implement additional add-on services to Google Analytics, such as Demographics and Interest Reporting, Remarketing with Google Analytics, and Google Display Network Impression Reporting.
Online Behavioral Advertising. We may occasionally use advertising networks and services provided by third-party vendors. These services collect data about your interactions with the Sites and other websites across the internet and use such data to target personal content and advertisements for goods and services. The data collected may be associated with your Personal Information. The targeted content and advertisements may appear on the Sites and on other websites and may be sent to you via email. Advertising networks often gather data about consumers who view advertisements to make inferences about a consumer’s interests and preferences, which enables the delivery of advertisements directly targeted to the consumer’s specific interests. This practice is often referred to as “online behavioral advertising.”
To change your preferences with respect to certain online ads and to obtain more information about third-party ad networks and online behavioral advertising, visit the National Advertising Initiative Consumer opt-out page or the Digital Advertising Alliance Self-Regulatory Program. Changing your settings with individual browsers or ad networks will not necessarily carry over to other browsers or ad networks. As a result, depending on the opt-outs you request, you may occasionally still see our ads.

How to Exercise Your Rights. To exercise your rights under the CCPA, you may contact us at any of the following:
Who May Exercise Your Rights. If you are a California resident, only you or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf may make a request related to your Personal Information. See the section titled “Using an Authorized Agent” for more information. A parent or legal guardian may make a request on behalf of their child.
Verifiable Consumer Request. In order to verify your request, you must provide sufficient information to allow us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected Personal Information, and you must describe your request with sufficient detail to allow us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to your request.
When we receive your request to exercise your rights under the CCPA: (a) we will acknowledge receipt of your request; (b) we will try to match the information you provide in making the request with information we already maintain about you; (c) if required to verify your identity, we may ask you to provide additional information, including Personal Information; and (d) we will consider various factors when determining how to verify your identity, such as the sensitivity and value of the data, the risk of harm, the likelihood of fraud, etc.
We will only use Personal Information we collect during the verification process for the purpose of verifying your identity. If you maintain an account with us, we may use that account to respond to your request and/or verify your identity. If we are unable to verify your identity as required by applicable laws and regulations, we will decline to comply with your request, and let you know why.
When We Will Respond. We will try to respond to your request within 45 days. If we require additional time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of your request.
