We may share both your Personal Information with Service Providers solely as appropriate for them to perform their functions.

We may share your Personal Information with analytics providers, such as Google Analytics and Tag Manager servicers, to tell us how the Website is doing, such as to which part interest visitors and how long they visit before leaving.  Among other data, they may receive a User’s IP address.

Usage Data may be used in aggregate (anonymized) form for internal business purposes, such as generating statistics and developing marketing plans. We may share or transfer such aggregate, non-personally identifiable Usage Data with third parties for administrative, analytical, research, optimization, security and other purposes, but no such information will be linked with your Personal Information or be used to identify or contact you.

Finally, we may share your Information: (i) In response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law.

  1. Data Retention – How long will we use your Personal Information?

We will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for as specified in this Policy, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.

For example, we delete some activity as soon as you exit the Website, whereas we may retain traffic data for analytics purposes.

Personal Information that is transferred to us may be stored or processed in the United States, which does not have data protection laws equivalent to those in the UK or the EEA and other jurisdictions.

  1. Your California and other state privacy rights

This section applies to you only if you reside in California or another U.S. state where applicable law provides for some or all of these rights or substantially similar rights.  Rights of California residents are specifically referred to as “rights under the CCPA” or “CCPA rights.”

Rights under the CCPA

The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) provides California consumers rights regarding their Personal Information (as defined in the CCPA). ”).  If you reside in a United States jurisdiction that has enacted a data privacy law, we extend the same rights CCPA grants to California consumers, except where we specify otherwise.

The categories of Personal Information we collect are generally described in the section above titled: Personal Information we collect and how your Personal Information is collected.  These categories depend on how you use the Website.

Under the CCPA, qualifying California consumers may have the following rights:

Right to Know, Access, Correct and Delete

A California consumer has the CCPA rights to request that we disclose what Personal Information we collect, use, disclose, share or disclosed for a business purpose.

We may deny deletion requests, in whole or in part, with respect to information we reasonably need to:

  • Comply with a legal obligation
  • Allow you, other consumer, or us to exercise free-speech rights or other legal rights
  • Perform a contract with you or
  • If we use the information for solely internal purposes reasonably aligned with consumer expectations

Rights to Opt-Out of Sharing/Sale and Limit Use of Sensitive Information

You also have the CCPA rights to direct us (1) not to share or sell your Personal Information and (2) to limit our disclosure and your use of “sensitive personal information” necessary to provide the website to you.

Although California consumers have the right to opt-out of sharing or selling of Personal Information we do not share Personal Information with any third party.

We do not collect “sensitive personal information” as it is defined in the CCPA and we therefore do not provide a mechanism to opt out of the use of such information.

As of the date of this Privacy Policy, we have no knowledge of any use of Personal Information that we collect from persons under the age of 16 for “sale” or “sharing” purposes.

No Retaliation

The CCPA prohibits us from discriminating against you if you exercise rights under the CCPA.  You do not need to exercise this CCPA right.  We never retaliate against anyone exercising their rights under the CCPA.

Preference Signals

Because we do not collect Sensitive Personal Information or sell or share any Personal Information, the Site is not presently configured to honor any global opt-out preference signal sent from California IP addresses to the Site through browser or device-level settings, provided the signal complies with CCPA’s requirements.

Submitting Requests

To submit a request to exercise a CCPA right, please submit a request via email to dataprivacy@anonymouscontent.com (with “Personal Information Request” in the subject line of your e-mail) or by writing to:

Anonymous Content
8501 Washington Boulevard
Culver City, California 90232

Verifying Requests

If we receive any request, a California consumer must provide sufficient information to identify the consumer, such as name, email address, home or work address, or other such information that is on record with us so that we can match such information to the Personal Information that we maintain.  Do not provide social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, account numbers, credit or debit card numbers, medical information or health information with requests.  If requests are unclear or submitted through means other than as outlined above, we will provide the California consumer with specific directions on how to submit the request or remedy any deficiencies.  If the requests are unclear we may respond with direction on how to remedy the deficiencies.

If we cannot verify the identity of the consumer making the request, we may deny the request in full or in part.

Responding to Requests

We will respond to your request as quickly as we can, taking into account the nature of your request and the volume of pending requests.  For California consumers, we will confirm receipt of your CCPA request within 10 days and will substantively respond within 45 days, unless we provide an explanation why an additional 45 days is necessary.  California residents may submit rights requests through an authorized agent.  We may request proof that the person who is the subject of the request authorized an agent to submit a privacy request on their behalf.

The content of our response will vary with the nature of your request, but we will always respond in accordance with any deadlines or requirements specified by the laws that apply to you.

Under certain circumstances, we may be unable to provide responsive Personal Information, such as when disclosure would create a substantial, articulable and unreasonable risk to the security of the information, users’ accounts with us, or the security or our systems and networks.  We do not disclose account passwords or other non-personal information that enables users to access accounts.  We also will not disclose California consumers’ social security numbers, driver’s license numbers or other government-issued identification numbers, financial account numbers, any health insurance or medication identification numbers.

We also will not disclose California consumers’ social security numbers, driver’s license numbers or other government-issued identification numbers, financial account numbers, any health insurance or medication identification numbers, or account passwords and security questions and answers.

We reserve the right to retain an archive of any information about you to the extent permitted by law.  We also retain de-identified or aggregate data derived from information about you.

California Do Not Track Disclosures

Although some browsers currently offer a “do not track (‘DNT’) option,” no common industry standard for DNT exists.  We therefore do not currently commit to responding to browsers’ DNT signals.

Civil Code 1798.83

Under certain circumstances, California Civil C ode Section 1798.83 states that, upon receipt of a request by a California consumer, a business may be required to provide detailed information regarding how that business has shared that customer’s Personal Information with third parties for direct marketing purposes.  However, the foregoing does not apply to businesses like ours that do not disclose Personal Information to third parties for direct marketing purposes without prior approval or give customers a free mechanism to opt out of having their Personal Information disclosed to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
