Should you choose not to provide some of the information we request, we may be unable to provide you with one or more features of this Website or the Services.
As further discussed below, similar to other Internet services, the Website uses “cookies,” small pieces of computer code that enable our Internet servers to recognize a user each time they initiate a session on our Website. Along with cookies, pages of the Website may contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags and single-pixel gifs) that permit the Company, for example, to monitor the uses of those pages or messages.

More on Cookies and Web Beacons
Pages of the Website and our emails may contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags and single-pixel gifs) that permit us, for example, to count users who have visited those pages or for other related Website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain Website content and verifying system and server integrity).
The Website utilizes Google Analytics, an industry standard employed to analyze website traffic and provide aggregate reports of how the pubic interacts with the Website, and we share this data with third-party vendors, contractors, consultants, and other service providers that assist us in operating the Website, providing the Services, and performing data analytics, marketing and advertising on our behalf. Additional information about such analytics can be found at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/.
There are a few ways that your device may transmit a “do not track” signal to certain websites. There is currently no standard established for these features, and the Website currently does not respond to “do not track” signals.
Children under the age of 18
We do not intentionally collect information about any person under the age of 18. Our Website and Services are not directed at persons under the age of 18. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a person under 18 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a person under age 18, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. However, no Internet, electronic operating system or data security system is ever completely secure or error free. We therefore cannot guarantee the security of any information. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures. By using the Website, you assume the risk of such occurrences. We request that you do not send, and we will not be liable for your sending, sensitive or confidential information electronically. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk.
California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”)
Consumers who are residents of the state of California have the right to make the following requests (no more than twice in any 12 month period) in connection with your “Personal Information” as defined by the CCPA:
In accordance with the CCPA, only you or your legally authorized agent may make a request related to your personal information. Your request must (1) provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected Personal Information or are an authorized representative, and (2) describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate and respond to it. We cannot respond to your request if we cannot verify your identify or authority to make the request and confirm the requested Personal Information relates to you. Making a request does not require you to create an account with us. We will do our best to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. 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 you have questions or concerns, or if you are a consumer who is a California resident and want to make a CCPA request, you may contact us by:
