The CCPA broadly defines “sale” in a way that may include actives such as the delivery of targeted advertising on websites or allowing third parties to receive certain information, such as cookies, IP address, and/or browsing behavior. In the past twelve months, we have provided the following categories of information to advertising networks, data analytics providers, marketing platforms, mobile linking platforms, social media networks, tag management platforms, web mapping platforms, and video sharing platforms in ways that could be considered a “sale” under California law:

  • Personal identifiers, such as unique personal identifier, online identifier, internet protocol address, device information and identifiers, and unique advertising identifiers and cookies; Internet and other electronic network activity information; geolocation information; inference data; characteristics of protected classifications under California or federal law; and commercial information.

We disclosed these categories of information to these third parties in order to market and advertise our products and services; perform analytics; and to maintain, improve, upgrade, or enhance our products or services.

We have no actual knowledge of selling the Personal Information or the sensitive Personal Information or minors under 16 years of age. 

California residents have the right to opt out of the “sale” of their personal or sensitive Personal Information. 

If you would like to opt out of such disclosures, you may exercise your right using our “Do Not Sell or Share My Personal Information” link, or by modifying your cookie settings, or, you may do so in a frictionless manner by activating GPC opt out preference signal to opt out of disclosures of your Personal Information through the browser you are using.
