California Consumer Privacy Act

For our California users:

This section only applies to California residents. Please read our Privacy Policy for further information on how we handle your information.

We are providing California residents additional information about how we handle personal information and your privacy rights and choices, as required by the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”).

Based on our understanding of the term "sell" under the CCPA, we do not "sell" your personal information. We work with advertising providers to deliver tailored advertising as described here. For information on how you can limit online tracking, please see our Online Tracking Choices.

The chart below describes how we currently (and have over the past twelve months) collect, use, and share personal information. This chart might not cover information you volunteer to us, like in an email.

Based on our understanding of the term “sell” under the CCPA, we do not “sell” your personal information. We do work with advertising providers to deliver tailored advertising as described above. For information on how you can limit online tracking, please see our Tracking Choices. Please note that we may also share your personal information as described above.

California residents have the following rights.

  • Information. You can request information about how we have collected, used and shared personal information during the past 12 months. We've made this information available in the chart above.
  • Access. You can request a copy of the personal information that we have collected about you in the past 12 months.
  • Deletion. You can ask us to delete the personal information that we maintain about you.

These rights are not absolute. For example, the CCPA prevents us from providing certain sensitive information in response to an access request. We’ll let you know if we deny your request and will not penalize you for making a request.

  • Requests. To request access to or deletion of your personal information, email [email protected]
  • Identity verification. We'll need to confirm your identity and California residency to fully respond to your request.
  • Authorized agents. California residents can empower an “authorized agent” to submit requests on their behalf. We require any authorized agent to provide written authorization confirming their authority.
