  • Our Privacy Policy link includes the word 'Privacy' and can be easily be found on the page specified above.
  • Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes On our Privacy Policy Page
  • Users are able to change their personal information by emailing us or calling us

Furthermore, Under California Law, California residents have the right to request in writing from businesses with whom they have an established business relationship, (a) a list of the categories of Personal Information, such as name, email, and mailing address, and the type of services provided to the customer that a business has disclosed to third parties (including affiliates that are separate legal entities) during the immediately preceding calendar year for the third-parties’ direct marketing purposes, and (b) the names and addresses of all such third parties.
