You have the right to request that we delete any Personal Information collected from you and retained unless retaining the information is necessary for us or for our service providers 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.
- Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
- Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing or intended functionality.
- Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights or exercise another right provided for by law.
- Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546).
- Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement if you previously provided informed consent.
- Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
- Comply with a legal obligation.
- Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.
Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct our service providers, subcontractors and consultants to delete) your Personal Information, unless an exception applies.
Right to opt-out
You have the right, at any time, to direct us not to sell your personal information to third parties, as defined under the CCPA. This is also referred to as your right to opt-out.
You have the right to opt-out of sales, within the meaning of the CCPA, of certain information subject to the CCPA. You are not required to have an account with us to exercise your right to opt-out of the sale of your personal information to third parties. Please submit your request to our Privacy Team.
Our Site and Services are meant for adults. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. If you are 16 years of age or older, under the CCPA, you have the right to direct us to not sell your personal information any time (the right to opt-out). We do not sell the personal information of consumers we actually know are less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the right to opt-in) from either the consumer, who is between 13 and 16 years old or the parent or legal guardian of a consumer less than 13 years of age. Consumers who opt-in to personal information sales may opt-out of future sales at any time, as described above.
Exercising your rights
You can exercise your rights (such as access and deletion) by submitting a verifiable consumer request to our Privacy Team.
Only you or a person authorized to act on your behalf may make a consumer request related to your Personal Information.
The request must:
- Provide sufficient information to allow us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected Personal Information or an authorized representative.
- Describe your request with sufficient details to allow 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. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use Personal Information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request. We will only use Personal Information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
You may only request a copy of your data twice within a 12-month period.
If you have any general questions about the Personal Information that we collect about you and how we use it, please contact our Privacy Team.
Response timing and format
Our goal is to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing within the 45 days period. If you are a User or Customer, we will deliver our written response to you through your Customer account. If you are a Site visitor, we will deliver our response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures we provide will cover only the 12-month period preceding the request. If reasonably possible, we will provide your Personal Information in a format that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information without hindrance.
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.
In case of rejection, the response we provide will explain the reasons for which we cannot comply with your request.
Please note that these CCPA rights are not absolute and requests are subject to any applicable legal requirements, including legal and ethical reporting or document retention obligations.
You can designate an authorized agent to make a request under the CCPA on your behalf if:
- An authorized agent is a natural person or a business entity registered with the Secretary of State of California; and
- You sign a written declaration that you authorize the authorized agent to act on your behalf.
If you use an authorized agent to submit a request to exercise your right to know or your right to request deletion, please mail a certified copy of your written declaration authorizing the authorized agent to act on your behalf using the contact information below.
If you provide an authorized agent with power of attorney pursuant to Probate Code §§ 4000–4465, it may not be necessary to perform these steps and we will respond to any request from such authorized agent in accordance with the CCPA.

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

We publish metrics regarding the number of requests we have received, complied with (in whole or in part) or denied, and also the median number of days in which we responded to such requests, in the previous year, as applicable to the time period in which the CCPA was in effect. As of the date of publishing this Privacy Notice, such data has yet to have been received. Once such data is received, it will be published on a dedicated Consumer Requests Metrics page which will be available within this Privacy Notice.
