We disclose personal information as necessary to operate our business, such as with third-party providers in connection with providing the Websites and other services to you. We also may access, preserve, and disclose information if we believe that such action is necessary in our judgment to comply with a legal obligation or to protect and defend our rights or property, or those of others. For example, we may provide information, including IP address information, to our service providers to protect the Websites, such as for fraud detection purposes.
To Comply with the Law and Legal Process. We may access, preserve, and disclose information concerning you if required to do so by law or if we believe that such action is necessary in our judgment to comply with a legal obligation.
Sales, Mergers, and Acquisitions. In the event of a merger, acquisition, financing due diligence, reorganization, bankruptcy, receivership, sale of company assets, or transition of service to another entity (whether by private sale, through operation of law, as part of a divestiture plan, or otherwise), we will provide personal information and transaction history associated with each such business unit to the persons and/or entities assuming control of such business unit or as otherwise necessary to complete the transaction as permitted by law or contract.
Certain jurisdictions impose specific legal requirements and privacy rights with respect to personal information, and we will comply with restrictions and any requests you submit as required by applicable law. For example, you may have the right to review, correct, and delete personal information we have about you. If you are a California resident, see our Supplemental California Privacy Notice section below. If you are located outside those jurisdictions and seek to exercise your rights under the law of another jurisdiction, please contact us using the contact information in the Contact Us section below. We will respond to questions, concerns, or requests as required by applicable law.
Please note that, when you make a request, we may require that you provide information and follow procedures so that we can verify your identity (and the applicable jurisdiction). The verification steps we take may differ depending on your jurisdiction and the request. Where possible, we will attempt to match the information that you provide in your request to information we already have on file to verify your identity. If we are able to verify your request, we will process it. If we cannot verify your request, we may ask you for additional information to help us do so.
We will respond to your request within the time period required by applicable law. However, we may not always be able or required to comply with your request, in whole or in part, and we will notify you in that event.

SUPPLEMENTAL CALIFORNIA PRIVACY NOTICE
A California consumer has the following rights: to request additional information about our data collection, use, disclosure, and sales practices in connection with the consumer’s personal information; to request the specific personal information collected about the consumer during the previous 12 months; to request the deletion of the personal information we have about the consumer; to request a restriction on certain processing of personal information; or to request correction of inaccurate information. In addition, a consumer may opt-out of the “selling” or “sharing” of personal information. A California consumer may not be discriminated against for exercising the consumer’s California privacy rights.
Under the CCPA, California consumers may use an authorized agent to make privacy rights requests. We require the authorized agent to provide us with proof of the California consumer’s written permission (for example, a power of attorney) that demonstrates authorization to submit a request for the California consumer. An authorized agent must follow the process described below to make a request, and we will also (a) require the authorized agent to verify the agent’s own identity and (b) confirm the agent’s authority with the California consumer about whom the request was made.
To make a request, you may contact us via email@example.com or call us toll-free at 1-800-527-8482. In most cases, you will be required to provide your name and email address so that we can verify your request, and in some cases additional information may be required.
- the purposes for which the personal information is used, and the length of time for which such information is required to achieve those purposes, including for business operations, security purposes, and legal requirements;
- whether we are required to retain the category of personal information in order to: (i) comply with legal or contractual obligations; (ii) assert or defend against potential legal claims or as necessary to investigate theft, fraud, or other activities that are potentially (a) in violation of our policies and procedures applicable to you or (b) a violation of the law; (iii) ensure a secure online environment; and/or (iv) protect health and safety;
- the privacy impact on the consumer of ongoing retention; and
- the manner in which the personal information is maintained and flows through our systems and how best to manage the lifecycle of such information in light of the volume and complexity of the systems in our infrastructure and the need to maintain high integrity and availability within our systems.
In addition, we delete personal information if a California consumer appropriately invokes the right to delete as to such personal information and no exception applies.
