We respect your right to privacy, and we will not discriminate against you for exercising your rights under the CCPA.

You have the right to withdraw from the incentive at any time without reducing the value of any previous incentives received. To withdraw from receiving the financial incentive, you can email us at [email protected]
The financial incentive or price difference is reasonably related to the value of your personal information. We consider factors such as the anticipated revenue generated, the expenses incurred for collecting and using the information, and the expenses related to offering the incentive. The value of your personal information is reflected in the value of the incentive itself.
