Our Disclosure of Your Personal Data and Other Information:
Company is not in the business of selling your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:
Business Transfers: As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, Personal Data may be part of the transferred assets.
Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties: Company, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. When we employ another entity to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function. We partner with third parties that collect information across various channels, including offline and online, for purposes of delivering more relevant advertising to you.

California Privacy Rights
If you are a California resident, beginning January 1, 2020 you have the right to make the following requests with respect to your personal information under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA):
Access You have the right to request that we disclose to you the personal information we have collected, used, disclosed or sold about you in the previous 12 months. You may submit an access request here.
Deletion You can request that we delete your personal information that we collected from you to the extent required under CCPA and subject to certain exceptions. We retain personal information to service your membership, to comply with applicable laws and regulations and other permissible purposes. That means we may not be able to delete all of your personal information. You may submit a deletion request here.
Right to Opt-Out You have the right to request to opt-out from future “sales” of your personal information. To do so, please visit our “Do Not Sell My Information” page. We do not sell (i.e. generate revenue from) your information to third parties. However, the law defines “sale” very broadly to include simply making data available to third parties in some cases. In order to provide Services, we do let advertising and analytics companies collect IP addresses, and cookie IDs through our sites and apps when you use our Services. We also disclose personal information to the companies that provide products and services to our members for their own marketing purposes as described above (see “Related Parties” and “Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties” sections above). If you do not wish for us to “sell” your personal information to other companies as defined under the CCPA, you can opt out and exercise your Do Not Sell My Information rights by making your Do Not Sell request by visiting our “Do Not Sell My Information” page.
After you submit your Do Not Sell request, we may continue to share some personal information with our suppliers (acting as our service providers) that do not constitute “sales” to help us perform advertising-related functions such as, but not limited to, measuring the effectiveness of our ads, managing how many times you may see an ad, reporting on the performance of our ads, ensuring services are working correctly and securely, providing aggregate statistics and analytics, improving when and where you may see ads, and/or reducing ad fraud. Any opt out choices you make will only apply to the specific email address that you provide when making the request.
You may designate an authorized agent to make requests on your behalf to exercise your rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act. Before accepting such a request from an agent, we will require the agent to provide proof you have authorized that person to act on your behalf, and we will need you to verify your identity directly with us. Further, to provide or delete specific pieces of personal information we will need to verify your identity to the degree of certainty required by law. Finally, you have a right to not be discriminated against for exercising rights set out in the CCPA.
For assistance making a California access or deletion request, please visit privacy.myhownd.com.
We may deny certain requests, or fulfill a request only in part, based on our legal rights and obligations. For example, we may retain personal information as permitted by law, such as for tax or other record keeping purposes, to maintain an active account, and to process transactions and facilitate customer requests. We will not include employment related information in fulfilling your request.
