California Residents


For California Residents:

Effective January 1, 2020, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) permits consumers who are California residents (other than temporary or transitory residents) to: (1) ask a covered business which categories and pieces of personal information it collects and how the information is used; (2) request deletion of the information; and (3) opt out of the sale of such information, if applicable. These provisions of the CCPA do not apply to personal information collected, processed, shared, or disclosed by financial institutions pursuant to federal law. 

While we do not sell personal information, we use Google Analytics (GA) for aggregated, anonymized website traffic analysis. In order to track your session usage, Google drops a cookie (_ga) with a randomly-generated ClientID in your browser. This ID is anonymized and contains no identifiable information like email, phone number, name, etc. We also send Google your IP Address. We use GA to track aggregated website behavior, such as what pages you looked at, for how long, and so on. This information is important to us for improving the user experience and determining site effectiveness. If you would like to access what browsing information we have - or ask us to delete any GA data - please delete your _ga cookies, reach out to us at the contact information below, and/or install the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-On.
