California Privacy Rights
Certain information we collect, which may include your log-in and password, may constitute “sensitive personal information” as defined by California privacy law. We only use any such sensitive personal information to provide our services and products or as otherwise permitted under California privacy law. While we do not “sell” or “share” your personal information in exchange for money for targeted advertising, to the extent that any practices described in this policy are considered “selling” or “sharing” under California privacy law, you may submit a request to firstname.lastname@example.org with a subject line stating “Do Not Sell’ or Share my Personal Information” to opt out of future sales in other contexts. If you choose to exercise these rights, you also have a right not to receive discriminatory treatment for exercising your rights.
Under California Civil Code Section 1798.83, California customers are entitled to request information relating to whether a business has disclosed personal information to any third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. That notice will identify the categories of information shared and will include a list of the third parties and affiliates with which it was shared, along with their names and addresses. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing at the address information below and please include “California Privacy Rights” in the subject line of your email.
We have taken steps to assure that all third-party vendors have confidentiality clauses to protect your information. Should we not have such written agreements in place, then you have the option to “opt-out” of the sharing of this information. If you desire to opt-out for those instances that we do not have the confidentiality clause, you should provide us with written instructions forwarded to Chief Compliance Officer at the address set out above. Additionally, the law allows you to “opt-out” of only certain kinds of information sharing with third parties. We do not share personal information about you with any third parties that trigger this opt-out right. This means you are already opted out of these sharing situations.
Where recognized, we treat global privacy control signals as a request to opt-out of the “sale” or “sharing” of personal information. Additionally, certain browser plug-ins provide options for communicating opt-out preference signals such as global privacy control.
To Contact Us
If you wish to access, correct, delete, or restrict use of your personal information contained in public records information, you will need to contact the third-party supplier of the information directly.
