Sales of Personal Data
We do not “sell” Personal Data and have not “sold” Personal Data for purposes of the CCPA in the last 12 months. We have shared Personal Data with service providers over the last 12 months which did not constitute a sale under then-applicable law.
We value your trust in providing us with your Personal Information, thus we are striving to use commercially acceptable means of protecting it. We seek to protect your Personal Data from unauthorized access, use, and disclosure using appropriate physical, technical, organizational, and administrative security measures based on the type of Personal Data and how we are processing that data. The Services use industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to allow for the encryption of sensitive Personal Data you provide to us. You should also help protect your data by appropriately selecting and protecting your password and/or other sign-on mechanisms; limiting access to your computer or device and browser, and signing off after you have finished accessing your account. But remember that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure and reliable, and we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

In the case we discover that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we immediately delete this from our servers. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided us with personal information, please contact us so that we will be able to do the necessary actions.
We Will Not Discriminate Against You for Exercising Your Rights Under the CCPA
