Under Section 1798.83-1798.84 of the California Civil Code, California residents have the right to request from a business, with whom the California resident has an established business relationship, certain information with respect to the types of personal information the business shares with third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes, and the identities of the third parties with whom the business has shared such information during the immediately preceding calendar year. You have the following right to restrict the sharing of personal and financial information with our affiliates (companies we own or control) and third party companies with whom we have joint marketing agreements. Nothing in this form prohibits the sharing of information necessary for us to follow the law, as permitted by law, or to give you the best service on our Site. This includes sending you information about other products or services. If you are a California resident and would like a copy of this notice, please contact us or submit a request to us at the addresses listed below.
