YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS

This notice to California residents is provided under California law, including the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), Cal. Civ. Code 1798.100, et seq. This notice supplements our Privacy Policy by explaining your privacy rights if you are a California resident, providing our “notice at collection,” and providing certain mandated disclosures about our treatment of California residents’ information, both online and offline.

Notice of Collection of Personal Information

We collect these categories of personal information when you interact with us: identifiers/contact information, demographic information (such as gender and age), payment card information associated with you, commercial information, Internet or other electronic network activity information, geolocation data, audio, electronic, visual or similar information, and inferences drawn from the above.

We collect this information so that we can best serve you, including to fulfill your requests and sharing offers that we think you may be interested in.  A more detailed description of these purposes is in our Privacy Policy.

California residents also have the right to opt-out of the “sale” of their “personal information” to “third parties” (as those terms are defined in the CCPA and described below).

Based on the CCPA’s broad definition of the term “sale,” certain data collection on our sites and applications by third parties for purposes of interest-based advertising and social media tools may be a “sale” under the CCPA. On some of our sites and applications, clicking the “Do Not Sell My Info” link in the website footer or application settings will present you with a tool to opt out of tracking on that site or application. 

CCPA Mandatory Disclosures

We also make the following disclosures for purposes of compliance with the CCPA:

  • We may have collected the following categories of personal information in the last 12 months: identifiers/contact information, demographic information (such as gender and age), payment card information associated with you, commercial information, Internet or other electronic network activity information, geolocation data, audio, electronic, visual or similar information, and inferences drawn from the above.
  • The sources of personal information from whom we collected are: directly from our guests, third-party sites or platforms that you link with your registration account, analytics tools, social networks, advertising networks, and third-party services that update or supplement the information we hold about you.
  • The business or commercial purposes of collecting personal information are as summarized in our “notice at collection” section, and as described in more detail in our Privacy Policy.
  • We disclosed the following categories of personal information for a business purpose in the last 12 months: identifiers/contact information, demographic information (such as gender and age), payment card information associated with you, commercial information, Internet or other electronic network activity information, geolocation data, audio, electronic, visual or similar information, and inferences drawn from the above. We disclosed each category to third-party business partners and service providers, third-party sites or platforms such as social networking sites, and other third parties as described in the Privacy Policy.
  • The business or commercial purpose of “selling” personal information is for third-party companies to perform services on our behalf, such as marketing, advertising, and audience measurement.
  • We do not “sell” personal information of known minors under 16 years of age.
