We also collect information about businesses and their representatives that engage with us such as EIN, TIN, address, phone number, email address, bank account information (collectively, "Business Information").

If this information is capable of being associated with you, directly or indirectly, we treat it as Personal Information under the category Internet or other electronic network information.

Cookies and Other Automated Tools
We use the following types of cookies:
We employ software technology that enables us to track certain aspects of a user's visit to our Sites. This technology helps us better manage content on our Sites by informing us what content is effective, how consumers engage with our Sites, and how consumers arrive at and/or depart from our Sites. The software typically uses two methods to track user activity: (1) "tracking pixels" and (2) "clear gifs." Tracking pixels are pieces of executable code that are embedded in a web page that track usage activity including which pages are viewed, when they are viewed, and how long the pages are viewed. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with unique identifiers which are embedded in web pages and email messages that track whether a user views a web page or email message. User activity information may be associated with additional information about a user's session and Personal Information, if provided by the user.

Even with these safeguards, no data transmission over the Internet or other network can be guaranteed 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect information transmitted on or through our Sites or Services, you do so at your own risk.
We cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We may disclose Personal Information and any other information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties if, in our discretion, we believe it is necessary or appropriate to: respond to legal requests (including court orders, investigative demands and subpoenas); protect the safety, property, or rights of ourselves, consumers, or any other third party; prevent or stop any illegal, unethical, or legally actionable activity; or comply with laws.
The Sites may contain links to third party websites including social media platforms. Please be aware that if you access these links, you will be leaving our site. We encourage users to read the privacy policies of those sites, as we are not responsible for their content, links, or privacy procedures.
We may share Personal Information and Usage Data with businesses controlling, controlled by, or under common control with us. If we are merged, acquired or sold, or in the event of a transfer of some or all of our assets, we may disclose or transfer Personal Information and Usage Data in connection with such transaction.
Except with authorization from a parent or legal guardian, or as otherwise permitted by law, the Sites and Services are not intended for children under the age of 16 and we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 16.

Right to Know
You have the right to request twice per 12-month period that we provide you (i) the categories or specific pieces of Personal Information we collected about you; (ii) the categories of sources from which your Personal Information was collected; (iii) the business or commercial purpose for which we collected your Personal Information; (iv) the categories of Third Parties with whom we sold or shared your Personal Information; and (v) the business or commercial purpose for which we sold or shared your Personal Information. We are not permitted to provide access to specific pieces of Personal Information if the Personal Information is sensitive or creates a high risk of potential harm from disclosure to an unauthorized person such as financial information, social security numbers, and driver's license numbers. In that instance we will provide you with an indication of the type of information we have on file or redacted information.
Right to Deletion
You have the right to request that we delete any Personal Information we have collected about you. Please understand that we are not required to honor a deletion request if a legal exemption applies such as if we need the information to complete a requested or reasonably anticipated transaction, prevent security incidents or fraud, enable internal uses that are reasonably aligned with your expectations, or comply with legal obligations.
Right to Correction
You may request that we correct Personal Information we have on file that you believe is inaccurate. When you make your request, please be sure to provide us the specific information that you believe is inaccurate and the correct information. You should also provide us with any documentation you believe supports your proposed correction, and we will take that documentation into consideration. We will only correct the information if we determine, based on the totality of the circumstances, that your correction is more likely than not accurate. We may also choose to delete the allegedly inaccurate information instead of correcting it.
Right to Opt Out from the Sale or Sharing of Personal Information
You have the right to direct us not to sell your Personal Information to Third Parties or share it with Third Parties for targeted or cross-context behavioral advertising purposes.
We will recognize and process Global Privacy Control and, to the extent required by law, other generally accepted browser-based opt-out signals.

If we are not able to reasonably associate a browser-based opt-out signal with an identifiable consumer, we will treat it as a request to opt-out of the sale or sharing of that Site visitor's Personal Information collected while the signal is present. While the signal is present, we will also disable any Third Party cookies or other tracking tools present on the Site.
Right to Limit Use of your Sensitive Personal Information
If you are a Colorado, Connecticut, Utah, or Virginia resident, and you make a request to limit the use of your Sensitive Personal Information as defined under your applicable state's law, we will treat that request as a revocation of your consent for us to collect and process your Sensitive Personal Information and will delete your Sensitive Personal Information subject to any exemptions available under applicable law.

We will process verified Right to Know, Deletion, or Correction requests within 45 calendar days of receipt subject to the possibility of one 45-day extension.

We will not use any document you provide in support of your request for any purpose other than evaluating and processing your request.
California "Do Not Track" Disclosure

If you are an authorized agent submitting a request for another person, you must provide a copy of a lawful power of attorney or written authorization from the person (along with proof of your identity). You may provide this documentation via our Privacy Choices Request Form. We may contact you or the person on whose behalf you claim to act to verify your authorization.
