This Privacy Policy explains how CSS collects, uses, and shares information about you when you use our Services such as our websites, applications, and other connected devices where our Services are available. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. By visiting our Sites, our Applications and using our Services, you agree that your information, including your personal information, will be handled as described in this Privacy Policy, which is incorporated by reference into this Terms of Use and

The privacy practices of third parties that host our Services are governed by their own privacy policies and are not governed by this privacy policy. We recommend that you review the privacy policies of those third parties. When you click on an advertisement in our Services, you are redirected to another website or property governed by its own privacy policy. We recommend that you review those privacy policies as well.

Our Services are operated in the United States. By providing any information to CSS, all users, including, without limitation, users in the member states of the European Union, Canada or elsewhere outside of the United States, fully understand and consent to this Privacy Policy. That means by using our Sites, participating in any of our Services and/or providing us with your information, you consent to the collection, transfer, storage, use and processing of your personal information to and in the United States in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you are visiting from the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from United States law, please note that you are transferring your personal information to the United States. The laws of some countries may not provide the same levels of protection of personal information as your home country, particularly if you are resident in the European Union. We will take reasonable steps to ensure that information about you is treated securely in accordance with this Privacy Policy, and that all information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers or those of our service providers.



Collection of Information

CSS and/or its Service Providers, Contractors, and Third Parties (defined below), may collect Personal Information you provide directly to CSS and/or its Service Providers via the Service. “Personal Information” includes information that can identify, relate to, describe, be associated with, or be reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household. For the purpose of this policy, we may use Personal Information and information synonymously.

CSS collects information when you use or register for the Service, subscribe to notifications, post on the Service, provide reviews and testimonials, participate in promotional activities, or communicate or transact with CSS through the Service. In addition, when you interact with Third-Party Services (defined below), you may be able to provide information to those third parties.

Information You Provide to Us

We collect the following categories of information:

Identifiers: CSS may ask you to provide contact information such as name, email address, phone number, date of birth when you create an account on Crackle or Pivotshare, provide a testimonial, sign up for newsletters, the Crackle Rewards Program (available in the U.S. only), participate in surveys; contact customer service or communicate with us by other means. Certain content such as rewards, some features, and functionality can only be accessed with an account.

Sensitive Personal Information: At your option, CSS may collect sensitive personal information such as gender when you create an account. In addition, it is necessary that CSS collects your account log-in information and password to verify your account and maintain the account. This data is not used to personalize content or advertisements.

Information Collected from Partners and Other Sources

The information CSS receives via the Service may be combined with information CSS receives from Third Parties and sources outside of the Service. CSS may collect information from other commercially available sources, such as data aggregators and public databases, or our business partners, which may include your interests, purchasing behavior and your activities online, such as websites visited and advertisements viewed, if you connect your social networking account with your account. This aggregated data is non-identifiable about how you use our services. CSS may also obtain information about you from other sources, including companies’ affiliates. CSS is not responsible or liable for the accuracy of the information provided by third parties or for third party policies or practices.

Information Collected Automatically (Cookies and Tracking Technologies)

Internet or other electronic network activity information: CSS, its Service Providers, and/or Third-Party Services may also automatically collect certain information about you when you access or use the Service ("Usage Information"). Usage Information may include IP address, device identifier, browser type, operating system, information about your use of the Service, and data regarding network connected hardware (e.g., computer or mobile device), advertising IDs, cookies, and other technologies to keep track of your interactions with the Service, and to serve you with ads on third-party services, to offer you a more personalized and relevant experience. We may collect geolocation data in the form of an IP address to know the region from where you are accessing our Services. CSS does not collect precise geolocation data. You may see us refer to “Log Data.” Log Information is data about your use of the Service, such as IP address, browser type, internet service provider, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamps, and related data, and may be stored in log files. We may link your Log Data with your account information or with information collected from third parties.

Information Collected by Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies: Cookies, web beacons (also known as "tracking pixels"), embedded scripts, location-identifying technologies, fingerprinting, device recognition technologies, in-app tracking methods and other tracking technologies now and hereafter developed ("Tracking Technologies") may be used to collect information about interactions with the Service or e-mails, including information about your browsing and purchasing behavior.


A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s device, which may be session ID cookies or tracking cookies. Session cookies make it easier for you to navigate the Service and expire when you close your browser.

Web Beacons ("Tracking Pixels")

Web beacons are small graphic images, also known as "internet tags" or "clear gifs," embedded in web pages and e-mail messages. Web beacons may be used, without limitation, to count the number of visitors to the Service, to monitor how users navigate the Service, and to count content views.

Embedded Scripts

An embedded script is programming code designed to collect information about your interactions with the Service. It is temporarily downloaded onto your computer from CSS’s web server, or from a third party with which CSS works and is active only while you are connected to the Service and deleted or deactivated thereafter.

Location-identifying Technologies

GPS (global positioning systems) software, geo-filtering and other location- aware technologies locate (sometimes precisely) you for purposes such as verifying your location and delivering or restricting content based on your location.


Collection and analysis of information from your device, such as, without limitation, your operating system, plug-ins, system fonts, and other data, for purposes of identification and/or tracking.

Device Recognition Technologies

Technologies, including application of statistical probability to data sets, as well as linking a common unique identifier to different device use (e.g., Facebook ID), which attempt to recognize or make assumptions about users and devices (e.g., that a user of multiple devices is the same user or household).

In-App Tracking Methods

There are a variety of Tracking Technologies that may be included in mobile applications, and these are not browser-based like cookies and cannot be controlled by browser settings. Some use device identifiers, or other identifiers such as "Ad IDs" to associate app user activity to a particular app and to track user activity across apps and/or devices.

Some information about your use of the Service and certain Third-Party Services may be collected using Tracking Technologies across time and services and used by CSS and third parties for purposes such as to associate different devices you use and deliver relevant ads and/or other content to you on the Service and certain Third-Party Services. See Section 10 regarding certain choices regarding these activities.

CSS is giving you notice of the Tracking Technologies and your choices regarding them explained in Section 10 so that your consent to encountering them is meaningfully informed.

Use of Information

CSS uses Personal Information to provide services, to enhance our services, to personalize our services and marketing efforts, to set up accounts, to administer rewards programs. For example, we may use Personal Information to:

Sharing of Information

General Sharing

CSS may share the information CSS receives from or about you via the Service (or give others access to it), including your Personal Information, for a variety of purposes, as detailed in this Privacy Policy. CSS may share your non-Personal Information, aggregate and/or de-identified information about you except as prohibited by applicable law. These include, without limitation:


The Service may permit you to post or submit UGC including, without limitation, written content, user profiles, audio or visual recordings, computer graphics, pictures, data, or other content, including Personal Information. If you choose to submit UGC to any public area of the Service, your UGC will be considered "public" and will be accessible by anyone, including CSS. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Personal Information included in UGC is not subject to CSS’s usage or sharing limitations, or other obligations, regarding CSS-Collected PI or other Personal Information under this Privacy Policy or otherwise, and may be used and shared by CSS and third parties to the fullest extent not prohibited by applicable law. CSS encourages you to exercise caution when making decisions about what you disclose in such public areas. For more information on how UGC is treated under the Service’s Terms of Use click here. California minors should see Section 8 regarding potential removal of certain UGC they have posted on the Service.

Additionally, the Service may offer you the option to send a communication to a friend. If so, CSS relies on you to only send to people that have given you permission to do so. The friend’s Personal Information you provide (e.g., name, e-mail address) will be used to facilitate the communication, but not used by CSS for any other marketing purpose unless CSS obtains consent from that person. Your contact information and message may be included in the communication.


The Service may include hyperlinks to, or include on or in connection with, the Service (e.g., apps and plug-ins), websites, locations, platforms, applications or services operated by third parties ("Third-Party Service(s)". These Third-Party Services may use their own cookies, web beacons, and other Tracking Technology to independently collect information about you and may solicit Personal Information from you.

Certain functionalities on the Service permit interactions that you initiate between the Service and certain Third-Party Services, such as third-party social networks ("Social Features"). Examples of Social Features include enabling you to send content such as contacts and photos between the Service and a Third-Party Service; "liking" or "sharing" CSS’s content; logging in to the Service using your Third-Party Service account (e.g., using Facebook Connect to sign-in to the Service); and to otherwise connect the Service to a Third-Party Service (e.g., to pull or push information to or from the Service). If you use Social Features, and potentially other Third-Party Services, information you post or provide access to may be publicly displayed on the Service or by the Third-Party Service that you use. Similarly, if you post information on a Third-Party Service that references the Service (e.g., by using a hashtag associated with us in a tweet or status update), your post may be used on or in connection with the Service or otherwise by our Companies. Also, both CSS and the third party may have access to certain information about you and your use of the Service and any Third-Party Service.

CSS may engage and work with Service Providers and other third parties to serve advertisements on the Service and/or on Third-Party Services. Some of these ads may be tailored to your interest based on your browsing of the Service and elsewhere on the internet, sometimes referred to as "interest-based advertising" and "online behavioral advertising" ("Interest-based Advertising"), which may include sending you an ad on a Third-Party Service after you have left the Service (i.e., "retargeting").

CSS may use Service Providers for analytics services such as, without limitation, Google Analytics. These analytics services may use cookies and other Tracking Technologies to help CSS analyze Service users and how they use the Service. Information generated by these services (e.g., your IP address and other Usage Information) may be transmitted to and stored by these Service Providers on servers in the U.S. (or elsewhere) and these Service Providers may use this information for purposes such as evaluating your use of the Service, compiling statistic reports on the Service’s activity, and providing other services relating to Service activity and other internet usage.

Except to the extent CSS combines information from Service Providers, Third-Party Services, or other third parties with CSS-Collected PI, in which case CSS will treat the combined information as CSS-Collected PI under this Privacy Policy (see Section 1(c)), data obtained by CSS from a third party, even in association with the Service, is not subject to CSS’s limitations regarding CSS-Collected PI under this Privacy Policy, however such data remains subject to any restrictions imposed on CSS by the third party, if any . Otherwise, the information collected, stored, and shared by third parties remains subject to their privacy policies and practices, including whether they continue to share information with CSS, the types of information shared, and your choices on what is visible to others on Third-Party Services.

CSS is not responsible for and makes no representations regarding the policies or business practices of any third parties, including, without limitation, analytics Service Providers and Third- Party Services associated with the Service, and encourages you to familiarize yourself with and consult their privacy policies and terms of use. See Section 10 for more on certain choices offered by some third parties regarding their data collection and use, including regarding Interest-based Advertising and analytics.

Data Security

CSS takes reasonable measures to protect CSS-Collected PI (excluding UGC) from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.

Nevertheless, transmission via the internet and online digital storage are not completely secure and CSS cannot guarantee the security of your information collected through the Service.

To help protect you and others, CSS and its Service Providers may (but make no commitment to) monitor use of the Service, and may collect and use related information including CSS-Collected PI and other Personal Information for all purposes not prohibited by applicable law or inconsistent with this Privacy Policy, including, without limitation, to identify fraudulent activities and transactions; prevent abuse of and investigate and/or seek prosecution for any potential threats to or misuse of the Service; ensure compliance with the Terms of Use and this Privacy Policy; investigate violations of or enforce these agreements; and otherwise to protect the rights and property of CSS, their partners, and customers. Monitoring may result in the collection, recording, and analysis of online activity or communications through our Service. If you do not consent to these conditions, you must discontinue your use of the Service.

Minors’ and Children’s Privacy

CSS offers to its users a range of sites and applications, some of which are intended for users and their families. CSS does not permit the registration of, nor does CSS knowingly collect, use, or disclose PII from anyone under 13 years of age (as defined by the U.S. Children’s Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA") ("Children’s Personal Information").

Our channel, Popcornflix Kids, may automatically collect information such as IP address and watch time of shows if a child is watching from their own device to support internal operations such as to conduct research and analysis to address the performance of the platform, provide contextual advertising, and to provide access to content. In any instance that we collect personal information from a child, we will retain that information only so long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the activity request or allow the child to continue to participate in the activity and ensure the security of our users and our services, or as required by law. We do not share this information with third parties. We may share information with our service providers if necessary, for them to perform a business, professional, or technology support function for us.

We may disclose personal information if permitted or required by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we also may disclose personal information collected from children (i) in response to a law enforcement or public agency’s (including schools or children services) request; (ii) if we believe disclosure may prevent the instigation of a crime, facilitate an investigation related to public safety or protect the safety of a child using our sites or applications; (iii) to protect the security or integrity of our sites, applications, and other technology, as well as the technology of our service providers; or (iv) enable us to take precautions against liability.

We do not “sell” personal information of known minors under 16 years of age.

If you are using any of our other sites and you are under the age of 13, you are not permitted to use these Services. If you are aware of anyone under the age of 13 using our other Sites, please notify us. Upon confirmation, we will terminate any account that a user may have, and we will eliminate any personal information we may have obtained from that user immediately.

If you are a parent or guardian and believe CSS has collected Children’s Personal Information in a manner not permitted by COPPA, please contact CSS and CSS will remove such data to the extent required by COPPA.

The right to be informed. You have the right to be provided with clear, transparent and easily understandable information about how we use your information and your rights. This is why we’re providing you with the information in this Policy.

The right of access. You have the right to obtain access to your information, and certain other information (similar to that provided in this Privacy Policy). This is so you’re aware and can check that we’re using your information in accordance with data protection law.

The right to rectification. You are entitled to have your information corrected if it is inaccurate or incomplete.

The right to erasure. This is also known as ‘the right to be forgotten’ and, in simple terms, enables you to request the deletion or removal of your information where there is no compelling reason for us to keep using it. This is not a general right to erasure; there are exceptions.

The right to restrict processing. You have rights to ‘block’ or suppress further use of your information. When processing is restricted, we can still store your information, but may not use it further. We keep lists of people who have asked for further use of their information to be ‘blocked’ to make sure the restriction is respected in future.

The right to data portability. You have rights to obtain and reuse your personal data for your own purposes across different services. For example, if you decide to switch to a new provider, this enables you to move, copy or transfer your information easily between our IT systems and theirs safely and securely, without affecting its usability. This is not a general right however and there are exceptions.

The right to object to processing. You have the right to object to certain types of processing, including processing for direct marketing (i.e., receiving emails from us notifying you about other services we provide which we think may be of interest to you or being contacted with varying potential opportunities). You may change your preferences regarding email or newsletters as described above.

The right to lodge a complaint. You have a right to lodge a complaint with your local Data Protection Supervisory Authority or with the UK Information Commissioner’s Office:

The right to withdraw consent. If you have given your consent to anything we do with your personal data (i.e., we rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal information), you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time (although if you do so, it does not mean that anything we have done with your personal data with your consent up to that point is unlawful). You can withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal information at any time.

Tracking Options

Tracking Technologies Generally

You can control the use of your data for interest-based advertising from CSS by visiting this form.

Regular cookies may generally be disabled or removed by tools available as part of most commercial browsers, and in some instances blocked in the future by selecting certain settings. Browsers offer different functionalities and options so you may need to set them separately. Also, tools from commercial browsers may not be effective with regard to Flash cookies (also known as locally shared objects), HTML5 cookies, or other Tracking Technologies. For information on disabling Flash cookies, go to Adobe’s website Please be aware that if you disable or remove these technologies, some parts of the Service may not work and that when you revisit the Service your ability to limit browser-based Tracking Technologies is subject to your browser settings and limitations.

App-related Tracking Technologies in connection with non-browser usage (e.g., most functionality of a mobile app) can only be disabled by uninstalling the app. To uninstall an app, follow the instructions from your operating system or device manufacturer.

Your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a "Do Not Track" signal to online services you visit. Note, however, there is no consensus among industry participants as to what "Do Not Track" means in this context. Like many online services, CSS currently does not alter CSS’s practices when CSS receives a "Do Not Track" signal from a visitor’s browser. To find out more about "Do Not Track," you can visit but CSS is not responsible for the completeness or accuracy of this third party information. Some third parties, however, may offer you choices regarding their Tracking Technologies. CSS is not responsible for the completeness or accuracy of third-party choice notices or choice mechanisms. For specific information on some of the choice options offered by third party analytics and advertising providers, see the next section.

Analytics and Advertising Tracking Technologies

You may exercise choices regarding the use of cookies from Google Analytics by going to or downloading the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.

You may choose whether to receive some Interest-based Advertising by submitting opt- outs. Some of the advertisers and Service Providers that perform advertising-related services for us, and our partners may participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance’s("DAA") Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. To learn more about how you can exercise certain choices regarding Interest-based Advertising, visit and for information on the DAA’s opt-out program for mobile apps. Some of these companies may also be members of the Network Advertising Initiative ("NAI"). To learn more about the NAI and your opt-out options for their members, see Please be aware that, even if you are able to opt out of certain kinds of Interest-based Advertising, you may continue to receive other types of ads. Opting out only means that those selected members should no longer deliver certain Interest-based Advertising to you but does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content and/or ads (e.g., from other ad networks). Also, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you visit these opt-out webpages, or you subsequently erase your cookies, use of a different device or web browsers or use a non- browser-based method of access (e.g., mobile app), your NAI /DAA browser-based opt-out may not, or may no longer, be effective.

CSS supports the ad industry’s 2009 Self- regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising ( CSS is not responsible for effectiveness of, or compliance with, any third-parties’ opt-out options or programs or the accuracy of their statements regarding their programs.

Other Platforms

You may also opt-out of targeted advertising on specific devices using the instructions below:

Mobile Apps

With respect to CSS’ mobile apps ("apps"), you can stop all collection of data generated by use of the app by uninstalling the app. Also, you may be able to exercise specific privacy choices, such as enabling or disabling certain location-based services, by adjusting the permissions in your mobile device. For example:


You can opt out of receiving certain promotional communications (emails or text messaging) from CSS at any time by (i) for promotional emails, following the instructions provided in emails to click on the unsubscribe link, or if available by changing your communication preferences by logging onto your account; and (ii) for text messages, following the instructions provided in text messages from CSS to text the word, affect subsequent subscriptions.

California Users

Shine the Light

CSS only knowingly shares personal information (as defined by California’s "Shine the Light" law), with non-affiliated third parties (i.e., parties other than our affiliated Crackle Plus Companies) for their own direct marketing purposes if you specifically opt-in or are offered the opportunity to opt- out and elect not to opt-out, to such sharing at the time you provide personal information or choose to participate in a feature on the Service. If you do not opt-in or if you opt-out at that time, CSS will not knowingly share the personal information that was collected in connection therewith with such identified non-affiliated third party(ies) for its/their own direct marketing purposes but may continue to seek your consent to sharing with the same or other non-affiliated third parties for their own direct marketing purposes from time-to-time. Each consent notice and opportunity will be treated separately so it is possible that you may consent to some sharing but not to others.

In addition, California residents may request information about CSS’ compliance with the Shine the Light law and the CSS Companies with which CSS may have shared personal information for their direct marketing purposes by contacting CSS here or by sending a letter to Crackle Plus, LLC at PO Box 700, Cos Cob, CT 06807 (Attention: Privacy Program, Information Security). Requests must include "California Privacy Rights Request" in the first line of the description and include your name, street address, city, state, and ZIP code. Please note that CSS is only required to respond to one request per customer each year, and CSS is not required to respond to requests made by means other than through the provided e-mail address or mail address.

California Consumer Privacy Act

The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) provides California residents specific rights regarding personal information. These rights have been described in the Supplemental Privacy Policy. If you have a specific question or concern about your rights, or questions about our policy in support of your rights as a Californian consumer, please contact us through our email or mailing address in the “Questions about our Privacy Policy” section below.

California Consumers under CCPA (“California Statement”) explains rights that California consumers may have under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”).

When we use the term “personal information” in this supplemental California Statement, we are using that term as CCPA defines it, which CCPA generally defines “personal information” to mean information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household. However, personal information does not include publicly available, de-identified, or aggregate consumer information (which are all defined in CCPA). Notably, the definition of “personal information” also does not apply to the collection of personal information from job applicants, employees – whether you are our employee or any employee of the entity arranging access to our Services for you, business owners, directors, officers, staff, or contractors.


Where we act as a “business” under CCPA (meaning we determine the manner and reasons for why we process your personal information), we may be required to disclose the categories of personal information we collect, the sources where we obtain that information, the purposes for why we collect that information, and who we share that information – all of which depends on the specific Service.

Category Examples Collected
A. Identifiers. A real name, alias, unique personal identifier, online identifier, Internet Protocol address, email address, or other similar identifiers. Testimonials and reviews. Yes, for name and email when accounts are created. IP address for all users
B. Personal information categories listed in the California Customer Records statute (Cal. Civ. Code § 1798.80(e)). A name, signature, Social Security number, physical characteristics or description, address, telephone number, passport number, driver's license or state identification card number, insurance policy number, education, employment, employment history, bank account number, credit card number, debit card number, or any other financial information, medical information, or health insurance information. Some personal information included in this category may overlap with other categories. Yes, for name only.
C. Protected classification characteristics under California or federal law. Age (40 years or older), race, color, ancestry, national origin, citizenship, religion or creed, marital status, medical condition, physical or mental disability, sex (including gender, gender identity, gender expression, pregnancy or childbirth and related medical conditions), sexual orientation, veteran or military status, genetic information (including familial genetic information). Yes for age and gender.
D. Commercial information. Records of personal property, products or services purchased, obtained, or considered, or other purchasing or consuming histories or tendencies. Yes, for videos watched on service.
E. Biometric information. Genetic, physiological, behavioral, and biological characteristics, or activity patterns used to extract a template or other identifier or identifying information, such as, fingerprints, faceprints, and voiceprints, iris or retina scans, keystroke, gait, or other physical patterns, and sleep, health, or exercise data. No.
F. Internet or other similar network activity. Browsing history, search history, information on a consumer's interaction with a website, application, or advertisement. Yes, for cookies, device ID, and IP address.
G. Geolocation data. Physical location or movements. Yes.
H. Sensory data. Audio, electronic, visual, thermal, olfactory, or similar information. No.
I. Professional or employment- related information. Current or past job history or performance evaluations. No.
J. Non-public education information (per the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (20 U.S.C. Section 1232g, 34 C.F.R. Part 99)). Education records directly related to a student maintained by an educational institution or party acting on its behalf, such as grades, transcripts, class lists, student schedules, student identification codes, student financial information, or student disciplinary records. No.

We obtain the categories of personal information from sources as described in the CSS Privacy Policy. We use and share personal information as described in the CSS Privacy Policy. When we disclose personal information for a business purpose, we enter a contract that describes the purpose and requires the recipient to both keep that personal information confidential and not use it for any purpose except performing the contract.


The CCPA provides California residents (consumers) with specific rights regarding their personal information. If you are a resident of California and are not a job applicant, employee, or employee of another company interacting with us in your job role, you have the right to request what information we collect, use, and disclose. This includes the categories of personal information and the specific pieces of personal information. You may also request the sources of personal information collected about you, the purpose for collecting the personal information. You also have the right to request that we delete your information. To submit other individual right’s requests that apply in your region, please click here.

The CCPA also gives California residents the right to stop the “sale” of their personal information. Based on the current draft CCPA regulations, amendments, and modifications CSS does not "sell" your Personal Information. CSS utilizes Tracking Technologies including for example, cookies and tracking pixels, that help us, and others better understand you and serve you more relevant content and ads. To opt out of certain Tracking Technologies, please see Section 11 of this Privacy Policy.

Only you or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. CSS does not knowingly collect information from children. If you believe we have collected information about your child, you may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your child. You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period.

The verifiable consumer request must:

Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person we collected personal information or an authorized representative.

Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it. We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.

Response Timing and Format

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request's receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:


Received Complied Denied Days to Complete
Right to Know 4 1 3 13
Right to Delete 7 5 2 8
Opt Out/Do Not Sell 16 9 7 9

*Denied means that the request was not verifiable or was denied on other grounds.
