5. “Do Not Track” Signals
Some internet browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” feature that signals to websites you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. Given that there is not a uniform way that browsers communicate the “Do Not Track” signal, the Site does not currently interpret, respond to or alter its practices when it receives “Do Not Track” signals.
We maintain commercially reasonable security measures to protect the Personally Identifiable Information we collect and store from loss, misuse, destruction, or unauthorized access. However, no security measure or modality of data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. Although we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personally Identifiable Information, we cannot guarantee absolute security.

9. Notice to California Residents
The CCPA defines “personal information” to mean information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular California resident or household. Personal information does not include publicly available, deidentified or aggregated information or lawfully obtained, truthful information that is a matter of public concern. For purposes of this “Notice to California Residents” section we will refer to this information as “Personal Information.”
We operate almost exclusively as a “service provider” under the CCPA, which means that our collection of Personal Information from California residents is on behalf of our clients. You should contact the applicable client to determine whether they are a “business” under the CCPA. If they are business, you should direct any CCPA requests to them.
The below disclosures apply to the limited circumstances where we collect Personal Information of California residents on our own behalf.
Notice at Collection of Personal Information
Identifiers (name, online identifier, Internet Protocol address, email address)
Unique personal identifiers (cookies or other similar technology)
We collect Personal Information directly from California residents and from internet service providers and operating systems and platforms. We do not collect all categories of Personal Information from each source.
In addition to the purposes stated above in the Section “How We Use Your Information” we currently collect and have collected the above categories of Personal Information for the following business or commercial purposes:
Helping to ensure security and integrity to the extent the use of your Personal Information is reasonably necessary and proportionate for these purposes
Performing services, including providing customer service
Disclosure of Personal Information
Retention of Personal Information
We retain your Personal Information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which we collect it, such as to provide you with the service you have requested, and for the purpose of satisfying any legal, accounting, contractual, or reporting requirements that apply to us.
If you are a California resident, you have the following rights with respect to your Personal Information:
The right to know what Personal Information we have collected about you, including the categories of Personal Information, the categories of sources from which we collected Personal Information, the business or commercial purpose for collecting, selling or sharing Personal Information (if applicable), the categories of third parties to whom we disclose Personal Information (if applicable), and the specific pieces of Personal Information we collected about you;
The right to delete Personal Information that we collected from you, subject to certain exceptions;
The right to correct inaccurate Personal Information that we maintain about you;
If we sell or share Personal Information, the right to opt out of the sale or sharing;
If we use or disclose sensitive Personal Information for purposes other than those allowed by the CCPA and its regulations, the right to limit our use or disclosure; and
The right not to receive discriminatory treatment by us for the exercise of privacy rights the CCPA confers.

Our Process for Verifying a Request to Know, Delete, and/or Correct
We will comply with your request upon verification of your identity and, to the extent applicable, the identity of the California resident on whose behalf you are making such request. We will verify your identity either to a “reasonable degree of certainty” or a “reasonably high degree of certainty” depending on the sensitivity of the Personal Information and the risk of harm to you by unauthorized disclosure, deletion, or correction as applicable.
