A California resident who has provided personal information
to a business with whom he/she has established a business
relationship for personal, family, or household purposes
(“California customer”) is entitled to
request information about whether the business has
disclosed personal information to any third parties
for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes.
In general, if the business has made such a disclosure
of personal information, upon receipt of a request
by a California customer, the business is required
to provide a list of all third parties to whom personal
information was disclosed in the preceding calendar
year, as well as a list of the categories of personal
information that were disclosed.
However, under the law, a business is not required
to provide the above-described lists if the business
adopts and discloses to the public (in its privacy
policy) a policy of not disclosing customer’s
personal information to third parties for their direct
marketing purposes unless the customer first affirmatively
agrees to the disclosure, as long as the business
maintains and discloses this policy. Rather, the business
may comply with the law by notifying the customer
of his or her right to prevent disclosure of personal
information and providing a cost free means to exercise
with third parties for their direct marketing purposes
unless you affirmatively agree to such disclosure
-- typically by opting in to receive information from
a third party that is participating in a sweepstakes
or other promotion on one of our sites. If you do
ask us to share your information with a third party
for its marketing purposes, we will only share information
in connection with that specific promotion, as we
do not share information with any third party on a
continual basis. To prevent disclosure of your personal
information for use in direct marketing by a third
party, do not opt in to such use when you provide
personally identifiable information on one of our
sites. Please note that whenever you opt in to receive
future communications from a third party, your information
If you later decide that you do not want that third
party to use your information, you will need to contact
the third party directly, as we have no control over
how third parties use information. You should always

handle your information.
