Effective Date: January 1, 2021

This Privacy Notice for California Residents supplements and is expressly made part of the information contained in our Privacy Policy and applies only to all visitors, users, and others who reside in the State of California (“consumers” or “you”).  We adopt this Privacy Notice to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) and other applicable laws.  Any terms defined in the CCPA have the same meaning when used in this Privacy Notice.

Any business that collects a California consumer’s personal information must inform consumers of the categories of personal information collected and the purpose for which the categories of personal information shall be used. 

The CCPA gives California residents the right to know about information collected, disclosed, or sold, the right to opt out of the sale of certain information, and a limited right to have businesses delete information collected about the consumer.  These rights only extend to California residents and information specifically covered under the CCPA. The CCPA does not cover all consumer data in all situations and only certain consumer data is subject to these rights.
