Your California Privacy Rights

Under Section 1798.83 of the California Civil Code, residents of California have the right to request from a business, with whom the California resident has an established business relationship, certain information with respect to the types of personal information the business shares with third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes, and the identities of the third parties with whom the business has shared such information during the immediately preceding calendar year. To exercise your rights, you may make one request each year by emailing us at the address provided below with “Request for California Privacy Information” on the subject line and in the body of your message. Be sure to provide in the request sufficient information to properly identify yourself.

After January 1, 2020, you will have additional rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA). If you are a resident of the State of California, you will have the right to:

  • require us to delete your personal information with some limited exceptions such as completing transactions, detecting security incidents and complying with legal obligations; and
