Our Website includes social media features, such as Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter widgets.

These widgets may set a cookie or utilize other tracking technologies to accomplish this. Social media features and widgets are hosted by a third party and your interactions with those features are governed by the privacy policies of the companies that provide them. Such sharing through cookies or other tracking technologies may be deemed a sale under the California Consumer Privacy Act.

California residents: please see the Your California Rights section for more information about your privacy choices.
Under California law, consumers residing in California are granted the right to access or delete the personal information that we have collected about them, to opt-out of the sale of their personal information by us to a third party, and not to be discriminated against for exercising these rights.
Right to Access: You have the right to request what personal information we have collected, used, shared for a business purpose, and sold about you within the preceding 12 months. Once we receive your request and confirm your identity, we will disclose to you the information we have collected about you.
Right to Deletion: You have the right to request the deletion of your personal information that we collect about you, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive your request and confirm your identity, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies under applicable law.
Right to Non-Discrimination: You have the right to not receive discriminatory treatment when you exercise your rights to access, delete, or opt-out. For example, this means we cannot deny goods or services to you or charge different prices or rates for goods or services, including using discounts or other benefits or imposing penalties, due to you having exercised your rights.
To exercise your right to access, correct, or delete your personal information, you may submit a request, via e-mail at email@example.com, or by calling us at (213) 748-3980. You may only make a request for access twice within a 12-month period.

If you are a resident of California, an authorized agent may make a verifiable consumer rights request related to your personal information. If you are an authorized agent making a request on behalf of a consumer, you must provide us with signed permission by the consumer that you are authorized to act on behalf of that consumer. If you are a legal entity, you must also provide us with documentation of your registration with the California Secretary of State. To submit such a request, please contact us via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The online form for access, correction, and deletion requests contains the information that we need to verify your identity and review your request. For requests submitted via telephone or e-mail, you must provide us with sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected the personal information and describe your request with sufficient detail to allow us to properly evaluate and respond to it. If we are not able to verify your identity for access and deletion requests with the information provided, we may ask you for additional pieces of information.
We aim to respond to your request for access, correction, or deletion within the time required by applicable law. If we need more time to respond to your request, we will let you know of the reason and the extension period in writing.
