This California Consumer Privacy Act Disclosure explains how we collect, use, and disclose personal information related to California residents covered by the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”). This Notice explains how California residents can exercise their rights under the CCPA to request that we: (1) provide certain personal information that we have collected about them during the past 12 months, along with related information described below, or (2) delete certain personal information that we have collected from them. The CCPA only applies to information about residents of California. Under the CCPA, “personal information” is information that identifies, relates to, or could reasonably be linked with a particular California resident or household.
