Rights of California Residents

These rights are subject to certain limitations, however, such as that they do not apply to data collected, processed, sold, or disclosed pursuant to the federal Gramm-Leach Bliley Act (Public Law 106-102) and its implementing regulations. Where exceptions to the CCPA apply to a request you submit, we will provide you with an explanation.
