Your Opt Out Rights
You have a right to request that we do not sell your personal information to third parties, for such third parties’ own commercial purposes, on a going forward basis. We may share your personal information with third parties in ways which constitute a “sale” under CCPA through the following ways:

This tracking typically involves the sharing of data collected by cookies and similar tools; and/or
- Marketing and Promotional Partners (“Third-Party Marketing”): We may share your personal information, such as contact information (e.g., name, email address, postal address) and other information with our business partners and others for their own advertising, marketing and other commercial purposes.
You have a right to opt out of either or both of the activities listed above. Please complete one of the forms below to submit your requested opt-out choices.

Depending on the opt out rights you exercise, you may still see certain ads on our sites and mobile apps, and some data collection will still take place (for example, to detect or prevent fraud or deliver the services you request from us).
