The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) is a new privacy statute that grants rights to consumers and imposes certain obligations on subject businesses.
The CCPA defines “consumers” to mean residents of California, and broadly defines “business” as for-profit entities that meet certain requirements.
Under the CCPA, the disclosure of personal information to a third party for monetary or other consideration of value can be considered a “sale”.
The CCPA also gives residents of California the right to stop the “sale” of their personal information through a mechanism called “Do Not My Personal Information”.
California’s definition of a “sale” also includes the transfer of data between corporate affiliates. In other words, companies that share a common ownership or other transfers for the purposes of serving the customer that would ordinarily not be thought of as a “sale”.
We provide the opportunity for consumers to exercise this right if any of our online business practices are considered to be a sale under the CCPA’s broad definition.
To exercise your rights under the CCPA, make a request through our secure interactive web form available here, CCPA Request Form, or by contacting our Data Protection Officer using the following information. To opt out of our use of third-party advertising cookies, please click here.
