1. Our Personal Information Handling Practices over the Preceding 12 Months
The table below sets out the categories of “personal information” and “sensitive personal information” (as defined by the CCPA) about California residents that we collected, ““sold”, “shared” and disclosed to others over the preceding 12 months, and the sources of such personal information.

2. Your Rights under the CCPA
As a California resident, you have the following rights under the CCPA:
- The right to know what personal information we have collected about you, including the categories of personal information, the categories of sources from which the personal information is collected, the business or commercial purpose for collecting, selling, or sharing personal information, the categories of third parties to whom we disclose personal information, and the specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you. You may only exercise your right to know twice within a 12-month period.
- The right to delete personal information that we have collected from you, subject to certain exceptions.
- The right to correct inaccurate personal information that we maintain about you.
- The right to opt-out of the “sale” or “sharing” of your personal information by us. We disclose California residents’ personal information to our targeted advertising business partners for the purposes of cross-contextual behavioral advertising and, as such, we “sell” and “share” personal information as these terms are defined under the CCPA. Please note that we do not sell personal information in the sense of disclosing your personal information in exchange for money. Please also note that, if you exercise your right to opt-out of the “sharing” of your personal information, we may still disclose your personal information to third parties for purposes other than cross-contextual behavioral advertising, as described in our privacy disclosures.
- The right not to receive discriminatory treatment by the business for the exercise of privacy rights conferred by the CCPA, including an employee’s, applicant’s, or independent contractor’s right not to be retaliated against for the exercise of their CCPA rights.

To use Global Privacy Control opt-out preference signals, please follow the instructions here: https://globalprivacycontrol.org/.
