Changes to our policy
Online Application Policy
This section supplements the information herein and applies solely to all visitors, users, and others who reside in the State of California. We adopt this notice to comply with the California Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) and any terms defined in the CCPA have the same meaning when used in this section.
Sharing Personal Information
We may disclose certain information about you that we have collected for purposes that may be considered a “sale” under the CCPA. For example, we may disclose information to companies that perform direct marketing campaigns. When we disclose such information we may enter a contract that describes and requires the recipient to both keep that personal information confidential and not use it for any purpose except performing the contract. The CCPA prohibits third-parties who purchase the personal information we hold from re-selling it unless you have received explicit notice and an opportunity to opt-out of further sales.
In the preceding twelve (12) months we have sold or disclosed the following categories of personal information:
- Personal Information Identifiers – Your name, address, telephone number
- Protected Classification Characteristic – Your age
- Commercial Information – Annual Sales of your business, your credit score and length of time in business
If you are a California resident, you may request information about our disclosure of personal information to third parties or affiliated companies. To exercise such rights, please submit a verifiable request to us as set forth below. Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable request related to your personal information. You may only make a verifiable request twice within a 12-month period. Please allow up to 45 days for us to process your request.

We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable request. We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded.
