CALIFORNIA CONSUMER PRIVACY ACT (“CCPA”)
- RIGHTS FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS
- WHAT IS CONSIDERED PERSONAL INFORMATION?
Personal Information is information that identifies, relates to, or could reasonably be linked with you or your household. For example, it could include your name, social security number, email address, records of products purchased, internet browsing history, geolocation data, fingerprints, and inferences from other personal information that could create a profile about your preferences and characteristics.
- NOTICE AT COLLECTION: WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
Your personally identifiable information may be required for limited purposes of providing you with a confirmation receipt of your signup, registering your information on the Application to advertise to customer users, contacting you in the event of any alleged intellectual property infringement claims; and/or contacting you in the event you want any of your Content needs to be removed from the site. Personally identifiable information may include but is not limited to: name, address, social security number, e-mail address, telephone number, and IP address. You acknowledge that this information may be personal to you, and by providing Personal Information to us, you allow others, including us, to identify you and therefore you may not be anonymous. The information we gather enables us to enhance user experience.
- THIRD-PARTY SERVICES
In connection with the use of our Service, you may link to other websites, services or social media platforms on the internet and other websites, and we may share your information with third-party platforms such as Stripe, Google Analytics, Paypal, Instagram, Tik Tok, and Facebook.
- HOW DO WE USE THE PERSONAL INFORMATION?
- SELLING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION AND RIGHT TO OPT-OUT
The CCPA defines “sale” a bit broadly to include information not only in exchange for money but also sharing personal information for something of value (i.e. such as directed advertising, digital analytics, and marketing). We use and sometimes sell your personal information to third-party analytics platforms for purposes of digital analytics and advertising to inform us how we perform online advertising. However, there is transfer of your information that would not be deemed a “sale” under the “service provider” exception of the CCPA. For instance, submitting your information to third-parties who use your personal information solely for the purpose of helping satisfy a business purpose of ours and to further our business purposes, and who contractually agrees to not use or share your data for other purposes will not be deemed a “sale.” To the extent we can contract with such third-party service providers to prevent them from using your personal information outside our intended business purpose, we will seek to do so to comply under the CCPA service provider exception.
You have the right to opt-out of the selling of your personal information and/or request for us to delete your information. To opt-out of either the sale of your personal information or opt-out using advertising settings, you can click on the “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link on our website.
- RIGHT TO KNOW
You may request that we disclose to you what personal information we have collected, used, shared or sold about you and why we collected, used or sold that information. Within 45 days of your written request, we can provide you with this information for the 12 month period preceding your request. You can request this information via the following methods:

We have the right under some exceptions to deny your request. Such reasons we may refuse to disclose your personal information include the following:
- We cannot verify your request;
- The request is unfounded or excessi
- We have already provided personal information to you more than twice in a 12 month period;
- We cannot disclose certain sensitive information, such as your social security number, financial account number, or account passwords, but can tell you if we are collecting that type of information;
- Disclosure would restrict our ability to comply with legal obligations, exercise legal claims or rights, or defend legal claims;
- If the personal information includes certain types of information exempt from the CCPA;
- Any other exemptions under California Civil Code Section 1798.145.
- CCPA RULES FOR MINORS (“RIGHT TO OPT-IN”)
