Summary of Key Points
- Personal Information, or PI, is defined in this policy to mirror the text of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and means information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household.
- We take your privacy very seriously, and we never monetize your Personal Information; we use it to enhance your experience on our platform and with our team and Company.
- Because the security of your personal information is important to us, we only ask for PI where it serves a business purpose and try to limit the collection of PI to only what is reasonably necessary to accomplish those purposes. We also use commercially reasonable physical, technical, and administrative security measures designed to safeguard all information collected by the Website.
