Do Not Sell or Share/Use My Personal Information for Targeted Advertising
Personal Information that We Sell or Share/Use for Targeted Advertising
Under California law, “share” means disclosing your personal information by us to a third party for cross-context behavioral advertising, in exchange for money or anything else of value. Thus, when we use the term “share” under this section, we are using it in the narrow meaning of how it is defined under California law. Other State Privacy Laws do not use the term “share,” but describe the concept as using personal information for targeted advertising.
Under the laws of California, Colorado, Connecticut and Utah, “sell” means exchanging your personal information by us with a third party for money or anything else of value. Under Virginia law, “sell” is the exchange of personal information for money only.
Through our participation in digital advertising networks and in connection with our Select Partners, we may sell or share/use for targeted advertising, the following categories of personal information:
- Identifiers and contact information
- Characteristics of protected classifications under California and federal law;
- Internet/electronic activity;
- Purchase or Commercial information; and
- Inferences drawn from the categories described above in order to create a profile about you to reflect your preferences, characteristics, preferences, behavior and attitudes.
We do not knowingly sell or share/use for targeted advertising the personal information of minors under the age of 16.
Right to Opt Out of Sale or Sharing/Using Your Personal Information for Targeted Advertising
You can opt-out of us selling or sharing/using your personal information for targeted advertising for online activity by enabling an opt out preference signal for a browser or plug-in that makes it clear that such signal is meant to have the effect of opting you out of the sale and sharing of your Personal Information. To opt out of online and offline selling or sharing, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call toll free 1-855-969-5065.
Note that if you are logged into your online account, we will process such request for offline sales also, but if we only can identify your device or browser, we will only be able to apply the request to that specific device or browser and only for cookie or pixel-based selling and sharing. Note that if you clear your cookies, your opt out request will no longer be saved for that browser.
We do not “sell” or “share” Sensitive Personal Information (as defined under State Privacy Laws).
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your rights under State Privacy Laws and we will not deny you goods or services, charge you a different price, or provide you with a lesser quality of goods or services if you exercise any of your rights under State Privacy Laws.
