We do not share personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless you affirmatively agree to such disclosure.
Users residing in certain jurisdictions, like California, have a right to access personal information held by us about them and their right of access can be exercised in accordance with applicable law. California law requires certain businesses to respond to requests from California residents asking about the business' practices related to disclosing personal information to third parties for the third parties' direct marketing purposes. Alternately, such businesses may have in place a policy not to disclose personal information of customers to third parties for the third parties' direct marketing purposes if the resident has exercised an option to opt-out of such information-sharing. We have such a policy in place.
California residents may request further information about our approach to this law by emailing us. When emailing to us, you must put the statement "Your California Privacy Rights" in the body or subject line of your request, and include (i) any unique site identifier associated with you (user name), (iii) your name, and (iv) your contact information.
