Your Privacy Choices.

Opt Out of Sale or Share or Processing of Personal Information for Targeted Advertising.

Residents of certain states such as California, Colorado, Connecticut, Utah, and Virginia may opt out of the "sale" of their personal information. Such residents may also opt out of the sharing or processing of their personal information for targeted advertising. Applicable law broadly defines "sale" or "share" in a way that may include allowing third parties to receive certain information such as cookies, IP address, device identifiers, browsing behavior, contact information and/or other activity to enable targeted advertising to you. We may share or process such information to deliver targeted advertising to you about our Services.

If you or your authorized agent (e.g., in California, Virginia, Colorado and Connecticut) would like to opt out of the processing of your information for such purposes, you may submit a request by clicking on the Your Privacy Choices link in the footer of our website and following the instructions. For non-cookie based information, you may also use our online request portal or by email at

You may still receive advertising; it just may not be tailored to your interests. Please note, if you use different browsers, devices, or services you will need to make your choice on each browser or device where you want to opt out. You should also complete the form above so we may add your information to an appropriate suppression list.

Please note that if you have a legally recognized browser-based opt out preference signal turned on via your device browser (such as Global Privacy Control), we recognize such preference in accordance and to the extent required by applicable law.


With your consent (to the extent required by law), we may send marketing communication to you through various channels, including by email, SMS and MMS message and physical mail.

You can opt out of receiving marketing emails from us at any time by clicking the "Unsubscribe" link at the bottom of each email or emailing us at [insert applicable email] with the word UNSUBSCRIBE in the subject field of the email. Please note that even if you unsubscribe or opt-out, we may still send you transactional, order, or Services related communications. 

You can opt out of receiving SMS or MMS messages from us by texting the keyword STOP in response to any text message you receive from us. 

You can also opt out of receiving physical mail marketing communications by emailing us at 

After you opt-out or update your marketing preferences, please allow us sufficient time to process your marketing preferences. Unless otherwise required to process your requests earlier by law, it may take up to 5 business days to process your opt out requests in relation to receipt of electronic marketing materials such as emails, and up to 30 days for all other marketing-related requests.

Tracking Technology Choices.

Most browsers accept cookies by default. You can instruct your browser, by changing its settings, to decline or delete non-essential cookies. If you use multiple browsers on your device, you will need to instruct each browser separately. Your ability to limit cookies is subject to your browser settings and limitations. If you disable or remove tracking technologies some parts of the Site may not function correctly.

Your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a "Do Not Track" signal to online services you visit. Because there is no industry consensus as to what website operators should do with regard to these signals, we do not take action with respect to "Do Not Track" signals or other mechanisms, except as otherwise provided herein. For more information on "Do Not Track," visit

Analytics and Targeted Advertising.

You can opt out of the processing of certain data collected by Google Analytics, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at For targeted advertising, in addition to the opt outs described in Your Rights and Choices above, some of the companies we work with to provide you with targeted ads are required by us to give you the choice to opt out of receiving targeted ads. Most of these companies are participants of the Digital Advertising Alliance (" DAA") and/or the Network Advertising Initiative (" NAI"). For more information about Interest-based Advertising and to understand your options, including how you can opt-out of receiving behavioral ads from participating companies, please visit the DAA website opt-out at , or the NAI opt-out at . Even if you opt-out of interest-based advertising by a participant, tracking technologies used on the Services may still collect data for other purposes including analytics. You may still see ads from us, but the ads from the participants with whom you opted out will not be targeted based on behavioral information about you and may therefore be less relevant to you and your interests.

Please note that your opt out only applies to the specific web browser you use so you must opt out of each web browser on each device you use. To successfully opt out, you must have cookies enabled in your web browser (see your browser's instructions for information on cookies and how to enable them). Once you opt out, if you delete your browser's saved cookies, you will need to opt out again.

To opt out of us using your data for Matched Ads, you may submit a request through our online form available through our online request portal. We will request that the applicable technology service not serve you Matched ads based on information we provide to it. Alternatively, you may directly contact the applicable technology service to opt out.

We are not responsible for the effectiveness of, or compliance with, any opt out options or programs, or the accuracy of any company statements regarding their opt out options or programs.

Retention period

We retain information for as long as you have an open account with us and for 7 years after you close your account. In some cases we retain information for longer, if doing so is necessary to comply with any legal obligations, resolve disputes or collect fees owed, or is otherwise permitted or required by applicable law, rule or regulation. Afterwards, we retain some information in a depersonalized or aggregated form but not in a way that would identify any individual personally.  

An example of the retention period that applies to certain types of data that we collect is set out below:

  • Mailing lists: we retain the information you used to sign up for our blog alerts for as long as you remain subscribed (i.e., if you do not unsubscribe) or if we decide to remove our blog service, whichever occurs first.

You play a critical role in protecting your Information by maintaining up-to-date computer security protections.

In determining how long to retain Information, we consider the nature and sensitivity of the Information, the purposes for which we process the Information, and applicable legal requirements. The purposes for which we process Information (as well as the other factors) may dictate different retention periods for the same types of Information. For example, we may retain your email address as an authentication credential (where applicable) as long as you have an account with us and an additional period of time after that for our fraud and legal compliance purposes. We may delete or de-identify your Information sooner if we receive a verifiable deletion request, subject to exemptions or requirements under applicable law, or when it is no longer needed to fulfill these purposes.

Right to Non-Discrimination.

You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment by us for the exercise of any of your rights.
