6. International transfers of data
Under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), California residents are afforded certain rights about the Personal Information (as such capitalized term is defined under the CCPA) we have collected about them, which we have described in more detail below.
Rights under the CCPA
If you are a California resident, the processing of certain personal information about you may be subject to the CCPA. Where the CCPA applies, this section provides additional privacy disclosures and informs you of key additional rights as a California resident. We will never discriminate against you for exercising your rights, including providing a different level or quality of services or denying goods or services to you when you exercise your rights under the CCPA.
Right to Know Request
Under the CCPA, California residents have a right to request information about our collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information over the prior twelve (12) months, and ask that we provide you free of charge with the following information:
- the categories of personal information about you that we collected;
- the categories of sources from which the personal information was collected;
- the purpose for collecting personal information about you;
- the categories of third parties to whom we disclosed personal information about you and the categories of personal information that was disclosed (if applicable) and the purpose for disclosing the personal information about you; and
- the specific pieces of personal information we collected about you.
Right to Delete Request
Under the CCPA, you also have a right to request that we delete personal information, subject to certain exceptions.
Right to Opt-Out of the Sale of Personal Information
You may request that we not sell your Personal Information. Please note, however, that CCPA defines “sale” very broadly, and includes “selling, renting, releasing, disclosing, disseminating, making available, transferring, or otherwise communicating orally, in writing, or by electronic or other means, a California consumer’s Personal Information by the business to another business or third party for monetary or other valuable consideration.” We use services that help deliver interest-based ads to you and may transfer Personal Information to business partners for their use. Making Personal Information (such as online identifiers or browsing activity) available to these companies is considered a “sale” under the CCPA.
