As a California resident and to the extent provided by law, you may:

  • Request to Know/Access. You have the right to know what information we have collected, used, disclosed, or in the preceding twelve (12) months. Please read Section 3.1 (Information you provide to us), Section 3.2 (Information we collect) and Section 3.3 (Information we receive from third parties) to exercise this right. We will also disclose to you the specific pieces of personal information that we collected about you if we receive your request for such information and verify your identity.
  • Request to Deletion. You have the right to request that we delete from our databases any of your personal information that we collect and retain, subject to certain exceptions (such as detecting security incidents, debugging, comply with legal obligations, etc.). We will delete your personal information from our records once we verify your identity and unless an exception applies.
  • Request to Opt-Out from Sale of Personal Information. Though we do not currently sell personal information the California Consumer Protection Act may consider some of our use of cookies as “sale” of personal information. As a California resident you may click the “do not sell my personal information” link at the bottom of our homepage, check the box and opt out of such “sale” of information to third parties. When you opt out, you may still see general audience advertising regarding our services.

  • Handling Privacy Requests. We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If the exercise of your right requires more time (up to 45 additional days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. We may deny your request if we couldn’t verify your request or if we must retain your personal information for certain activities (such as detecting security incidents, debugging, comply with legal obligations, etc.).
Our California Do Not Track Notice. Some web browsers offer a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) signal. A DNT signal is an HTTP header field indicating your preference for tracking your activities on the Service or through cross-site user tracking. We do not currently respond to DNT signals. We may allow third parties, such as companies that provide us with analytics tools, to collect Personal Information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time and across different web sites and services when a user uses the Site.

10. Information Security. We, and respective third-party services/affiliate entities implement data security systems and procedures to secure the information transmitted, processed and stored on the Site, our computer servers and systems. For example, the Site is encrypted by using SSL and so as any other information at transport, we periodically review our information and data collection practices to ensure constant monitoring, we use third party processing and serving services that implement various information security standards and certifications (at rest and transmission), and we monitor and filter access to data when it comes to personnel in our organization. Such systems and procedures reduce the risk of security breaches, but they do not provide absolute security, as there is no such thing when it comes to the world-wide network. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that the Site and our servers are immune to unauthorized access to the information stored therein and to other information security risks.

11. Children’s Privacy. The Site or the Services are not designed to attract users under the age of 18. Accordingly, we do not intend to collect Personal Information from anyone we know to be under 18.

If you believe that we might have any such information, please contact us at: [email protected].

12. Commitment. Protecting your privacy online is an evolving practice, and we use our best efforts to evolve our Site in a manner that meets these requirements and best practices as per all jurisdictions in which the Site is available.

13. Contact Us. We try to make this Privacy Policy simple and easy to understand. Our privacy email box [email protected] is for data protection inquiries in accordance with your legal rights listed above. Any other inquiries sent to this email box will be ignore
