For example, we may contract with Service Providers to provide certain services, such as hosting and maintenance, data storage and management, and marketing and promotions. We only provide our Service Providers with the information necessary for them to perform these services on our behalf. Each Service Provider must agree to use reasonable security procedures and practices, appropriate to the nature of the information involved, in order to protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. Service Providers are prohibited from using Personal Information other than as specified by us.

We use third-party data analytics tools to analyze how users use the App and Services. For example, we use Google Analytics on the Site and Services to analyze how users use the Site and Services.

Some browsers or browser extensions also allow you to tell websites not to share your information for cross-contextual behavioral advertising through the Global Privacy Control (GPC) signal. We will respond to this signal in a frictionless manner. If you configure this setting on your browser, certain features on our site may not work and you will receive less targeted advertising.
Options you make are device-specific.
Residents of certain US states have the ability to opt out of cross-contextual behavioral advertising through other means. Please see the Right to Opt-out of Sale or Sharing section below.

Please be aware that whenever you share information on any public area of the Site or Services, that information may be accessed by others. In addition, please remember that when you share information in any other communications with third parties, that information may be passed along or made public by others. This means that anyone with access to such information can potentially use it for any purpose, including sending unsolicited communications.
We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the confidentiality and security of information transmitted to us. However, no data transmission over the Internet or other network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect information transmitted on or through the Site or Services, we cannot and do not guarantee the security of any information you transmit on or through the Site or Services, and you do so at your own risk.

If we become aware that we have inadvertently received Personal Information from a child under the age of 13, we will delete such information from our records. California users under the age of 18 may request the removal of their content or information publicly posted on the Site or Services by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that most of the user content that appears on our Site or Services is stored and controlled by third party providers; thus, complete and comprehensive removal of the content may not be possible.

Please be aware that your Personal Information and communications may be transferred to and maintained on servers or databases located outside your state, province, or country. If you are located outside of the United States, please be advised that we process and store all information in the United States. The laws in the United States may not be as protective of your privacy as those in your location.

- Your Privacy Rights
If you are a resident of California or jurisdictions with similar laws (e.g., Virginia, Colorado, Connecticut, Utah) you may have certain additional privacy rights under the applicable privacy laws in your state (“State Privacy Laws”). This section generally describes those rights and how you can exercise them.
These rights are not absolute. In some situations we may not be able to process your request. This may include if a legal exception applies. We will let you know when or if a right does not apply to you. You will not be discriminated against for exercising a privacy right. If you disagree with our decision you can contact us as described at the end of this policy. Those rights are:
- Access: to learn the categories of information we collect and use, and for those in California, the categories of sources of collection and disclosure and the business purpose for collection;
- Portability: a copy of the specific pieces of Personal Information collected;
- Deletion: to have us delete information we collected from you; and
- Correction: asking us to fix your information.
We will also maintain a record of your rights requests.
Please note that if we delete your Personal Information, some of our services will not work the same. For example, your previous opt out requests will not be saved and saved preferences and information will no longer be available.
Exercising your Rights:
To exercise your rights, submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:
- Calling us toll-free at 888-271-9280; or
- Visit here to fill out and submit our web form.
Your verifiable consumer request must:
- Provide sufficient identifying information (including full name and email address) to allow us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected and retained Personal Information, and/or your authority to make such request on behalf of the data subject, and
- Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
Note that we will only use Personal Information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request or to review and comply with the request.
You may authorize someone to act as your agent and submit a request on your behalf. Due to the sensitivity of such requests, you must verify the agent’s authorization before we will act. Accordingly:
- You or your agent must supply proof that the agent is registered with the Secretary of State to act on your behalf; or
- You or your agent must supply other written permission for a specific agent to act on your behalf; and
- We will use your email address to connect directly with you to verify agent identity and authority.
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 with a level of confidence appropriate to the sensitivity of the information that the Personal Information we have collected and retained in our systems and databases relates to you.
Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us, but if you have an account with us, we may require you to log-in to such account in order to verify your identity or authority or to provide or delete your information.
Right to Opt-out of the Sale or Sharing of Personal Information
Residents of certain jurisdictions have the right to opt out of the “sale” or “sharing” of their personal data, as such terms are defined under State Privacy Laws.
Under California law, “share” means disclosing your personal information by us to a third party for cross-context behavioral advertising, in exchange for money or anything else of value. Thus, when we use the term “share” under this section, we are using it in the narrow meaning of how it is defined under California law. Other State Privacy Laws do not use the term “share,” but describe the concept as using personal information for targeted advertising.
The term “sell” has a different meaning under certain State Privacy Laws. For example, under the laws of California and Colorado, “sell” means exchanging your personal information by us with a third party for money or anything else of value, while under Virginia law, “sell” is the exchange of personal information for money only.
Currently, we participate in data co-ops and digital advertising networks to deliver advertising that is tailored to your interests. The participation in certain co-ops and ad networks can constitute a “sale” or “sharing” of personal data under State Privacy Laws. The categories of third parties to whom information may be disclosed in this context is our third party partners (e.g., advertisers and marketing partners, co-op member and data analytics providers).
We may “sell” and/or “share” the following categories of Personal Information:
- Online Identifiers;
- Geolocation information;
- Internet/electronic activity;
- Commercial information.
You can opt-out of our disclosure of this information in this context or being tracked by these third parties by clicking the “DO NOT SELL OR SHARE MY PERSONAL INFORMATION” link at the bottom of our Website, or in the menu of the mobile application you are using, and selecting your preferences. If you are a California resident, you may request a list of third parties that we have shared your Personal Information with for their direct marketing purposes by emailing us at email@example.com.
Please note that your opt-out preferences are website/device specific.
You can also opt-out by broadcasting an Opt-Out Preference Signal, such as the Global Privacy Control (GPC) (on the browsers and/or browser extensions that support such a signal). Note that we will only apply the request to that specific device or browser and only for cookie or pixel based selling and sharing. Thus, you will need opt out on each browser and device where you use our services. If you clear your cookie history on a particular browser or device, your opt out request will no longer be saved.
To learn more about these advertising practices or to opt out of this type of advertising of your personal data, please visit https://optout.aboutads.info/ and https://www.networkadvertising.org/ to optout. You can also opt out of the re-sale of your Personal Information by other participants in these digital advertising networks by visiting this site and opting out of each participant’s digital property. Please note that, otherwise, we do not presently exchange Personal Information for money with anyone, nor do we otherwise “share” or “sell” Personal Information, as such terms are defined under applicable State Privacy Laws.
Right to Opt-out of Profiling
Residents of some jurisdictions—subject to certain exceptions—may have a right to opt out of forms of automated processing performed on Personal Information to evaluate, analyze, or predict personal aspects related to your economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or movements (“Profiling”).
We engage in cookie-based or digital advertising-based Profiling. To opt out of this practice, please follow the instructions detailed above regarding opting out of the sale or sharing of your Personal Information.
We may also engage in Profiling when we assess your interaction with this Website and our Services for the purpose of providing you information on additional products and services which may be of interest to you.

We do not collect or process Sensitive Personal Information for inferring characteristics or use or disclose Sensitive Personal Information for purposes other than those permitted by law.

Residents of some jurisdictions (e.g., Virginia and Colorado) have a right to appeal our decision on a privacy rights request. If we were unable to fulfill your request, you may appeal our request by submitting our web form available here within fourteen days of our decision, and provide a detailed reason for your appeal, as well as your state of residence.
Notice to Nevada Residents/Your Nevada Privacy Rights
If you are a Nevada resident, please note that we do not sell for monetary consideration the Personal Information of Nevada consumers for the purpose of resale to other entities.
We may offer various financial incentives permitted by State Privacy Laws that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels.
