It’s a good idea to understand a key online privacy option: “Do Not Sell My Personal Information.”
If you tell us not to sell your personal information, we won’t.
We’ll still need to share some personal information with our service providers so you can receive products, services, and more. These may include our channel and service provider partners, advertising agencies, network analytics providers, aggregators of data for marketing purposes, etc. as otherwise set forth herein, benefits, payroll, and other HR providers, and IT and data processing services providers that help us operate our business.
California has a data protection law called the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). It gives California consumers the right to tell companies to not sell their personal information. We use this legislation as the benchmark for the privacy choices we extend to all our customers and employees.
That’s why we include a Do Not Sell My Personal Information link at the bottom of most of our website pages, and in some of our apps. When you click it, you get to make a choice about your online privacy with us.
Personal information is any piece of data that can or does identify you. The CCPA expands that definition to include information that’s not necessarily directly tied to an individual’s identity but may be associated with a device.
The CCPA defines “sell” or “sale” broadly to include the sharing of personal information (including information that does not directly identify an individual) in exchange for anything of value, which is not limited to the exchange of money.
According to the CCPA, certain exchanges of personal information are not considered a “sale.” For example, we can share your personal information with a service provider that’s contractually prohibited from using your personal information for any purposes beyond the service we specifically requested. Also, if you specifically direct us to share your personal information, then we’ll do so.
