This Privacy Notice covers our use of Personal Information. "Personal Information" means any information that relates to you and can -- either on its own or in combination with other information -- identify you as an individual. Personal information does not include information that has been de-identified or aggregated such that you can no longer be identified.
The types of information we collect depends on your level of engagement with the Services. The more you interact with the Services, the more information we need to provide the Services. This Section explains how we collect and use personal information based on your level of engagement with the Services.
From registered and unregistered users of the Sites, we automatically receive and record information whenever you interact with the Sites. This includes IP address data from our server logs, cookie information, browser information, information about your activity while on the Sites (such as the pages you request, properties that you view or save, and property that you claim), and the URL of the site you came to the Sites from.

We may also approximate your location based off your IP address, to customize your experience on our Sites.
We may also use the information listed above to help diagnose problems and performance with the Services, analyze trends, customize your experience, and administer the Services.

We may disclose your Personal Information to the third parties or others as described above in this Privacy Notice, for any of the business purposes described above in this Privacy Notice.

In the preceding twelve (12) months, we have disclosed the following categories of Personal Information in our role as a business for a business purpose:
The CCPA defines “sales” broadly to include not only traditional selling of data for monetary consideration, but also data sharing arrangements where the recipient can use the personal information that they receive for the recipient’s own business purposes. While we do not “sell” your Personal Information for monetary consideration, we do share certain categories of personal information available in order to receive certain benefits or services, such as when we make browsing information available to third party ad companies (through third party tags on our Sites) in order to improve and measure our ad campaigns and reach users with more relevant ads and content. This sharing can constitute “sales” under the CCPA.
The categories of Personal Information that we may have shared in a manner that is considered a “sale” as defined under CCPA in the prior twelve (12) months include: identifiers; internet or other electronic network activity information; geolocation information; and inferences. The categories of third parties under the CCPA to whom we have shared data that can be considered a “sale” of personal information as defined under the CCPA in the past twelve (12) months are data analytics providers, advertising networks and social networks. Our personal information sales do not include information about individuals we know are under age 16.
The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their Personal Information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.
You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your Personal Information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your request, we will disclose to you:
You have the right to request that we delete any of your Personal Information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your Personal Information from our records, unless an exception applies. We may not be able to honor your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:
To exercise the access and deletion rights described above, please submit your request to us at [email protected] , or contact us in writing at the address listed below in this Privacy Notice. Only you, or an authorized agent registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a consumer request related to your Personal Information. You may also make a consumer request on behalf of your minor child (12 and under). If you have any questions about your access or deletion rights described above, you may also contact us via email or regular mail at the contact information contained below in this Privacy Notice.
You may only make a Right to Know request twice within a 12-month period.
We cannot respond to your request to delete or provide you with Personal Information if we cannot verify your identity or your authority to make the request and confirm the Personal Information relates to you.
We will only use Personal Information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.
Where possible, we will respond to a verified consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt; however, if we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verified consumer request's receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your Personal Information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
If you are age 16 or older, you have the right to direct us to not sell your personal information at any time. We do not sell the personal information of consumers we actually know are less than 16 years old.
To exercise your right to opt-out of “sales” of your Personal Information, you can use a browser with the Global Privacy Control browser extension, or you can use the “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link available at: Do Not Sell My Personal Information and at the bottom of our website homepage. Please also see the “Your Choices” section above for information on your choices with respect to opting out of ARIS360 interest-based advertising and interest-based advertising generally.

However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer, will reasonably relate to your Personal Information's value to us and contain written terms that describe the program's material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt-in consent, which you may revoke at any time.
