·     The categories of personal information we collected about you.

·     The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you


Deletion Request Rights

You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies. We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

·     Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.

Do Not Sell My Personal Information

You have the right to opt out of the sale of your individual and household personal information. Once we receive your request, we will opt you out from the sale of such information.  This website uses certain third-party tracking tools that collects information about you passively.


Exercising Access, Deletion, and Do Not Sell Rights

To exercise the access, deletion rights, and do not sell rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by e-mailing us at


Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. We currently do not collect household data. If all the members of a household make a right to Know or Rights to Delete request, we will respond as if the requests are individual requests.


You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:

·     Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.

·     Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.


We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.


We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request. 


Response Timing and Format

We will provide a confirmation email to you within 10 days of receipt of a request.  The confirmation email will explain how we will verify a request which will vary depending on the type of request made.  We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request for access or to delete within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. We will deliver our response to the email address you provided when you made your request.  For a request not to sell your information, we will respond as soon as feasibly possible, but no later than 15 days from the date we receive the request.


Any disclosures we provide may only cover the 12-month period preceding a verifiable consumer request. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance (e.g. Microsoft Excel file and/or Adobe PDF file).




We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request. 



We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by law, we will not:

·     Deny you goods or services.

·     Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.

·     Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.

·     Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
