Cookies

Cookies are bits of electronic information that a website can transfer to a visitor’s hard drive to help tailor and keep records of his or her visit. Cookies allow website operators to better customize visits to the site to the visitor’s individual preferences. Many commercial websites use cookies. We may use cookies on our Website to allow us to, among other things, measure activity, to personalize your experience, and to track your status or progress when requesting information. If you choose, you can set your browser to reject cookies or you can manually delete individual or all of the cookies on your computer by following your browser’s help file directions. However, if your browser is set to reject cookies or you manually delete cookies, you may have some trouble accessing and using some of the pages and features that are currently on our Website, or that we may put on our Website in the future.


Web Beacons

Certain pages on the Website contain “web beacons” (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags and clear GIFs). These web beacons allow third parties to obtain information such as the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the beacon appears, the time the page containing the beacon was viewed, the type of browser used to view the page, and the information in cookies set by the third party. Web beacons also may be used to track whether you have opened an HTML email. When the email is opened, a part of the code that makes up the HTML page calls a web server to load the web beacon that then generates a record showing that the email has been viewed. Web beacons may also recognize when the email was opened, how many times it was forwarded and which URLs (links within the email) were clicked.


IP Addresses

When you visit and interact with our Website, and third parties with whom we have contracted to provide services for us may collect Internet Protocol addresses (each an “IP Address”), as well as browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and page navigation. An IP Address is a unique identifier number that certain electronic devices used to identify and to communicate with each other on the Internet; your Internet Service Provider automatically assigns an IP Address to the computer that you are using. We gather this information to track web site visitor movement in the aggregate, and to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. Our goal in gathering this information is to learn how our customers and the public are using our service. We may use this information to enhance our Website or for other lawful purposes.

Due to the potential for rapid and diverse developments of technology in this area, we cannot guarantee that we can process every type of request that exists or may be developed in the future. As noted above, third parties, such as our advertising partners, may collect data that relates to you. We cannot control third parties' responses to do-not-track signals or other such mechanisms.

Any terms defined in the CCPA have the same meaning when used in this CA Privacy Statement.

 

Your Rights and Choices 

The CCPA provides CA Residents with specific rights regarding their Personal Information. The CCPA defines Personal Information as any information that “identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household” (hereinafter, “PII”).  This CA Privacy Statement describes your CCPA rights in relation to our use of your PII, and explains how to exercise those rights.

 

Right to Know/Access.

  • The categories of PII we have collected, sold, or disclosed for business purposes about you;
  • The categories of sources from which we collected your PII;
  • The business or commercial purpose for collecting or sharing your PII;
  • The categories of third parties with whom we have shared, sold, or disclosed for business purposes your PII; and
  • The specific pieces of your PII we have collected.

 

Portability Rights

As part of your “right of access”, you have the right to request that we provide your PII to you.  Once we receive and confirm your “verifiable consumer request” (as described below) we will provide the PII we have collected and currently hold to you “in a portable and, to the extent technically feasible, in a readily usable format.

 

Right of Deletion

As a California Resident, you have a right to request that we delete the PII we have collected from or about you, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable request (as described below), we will delete (and ask our service providers to delete) your PII from our records, unless an exception applies.

Please note, we may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers to:

  1. Complete the transaction for which we collected the PII, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
  2. Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.

  7. Comply with a legal obligation.
  8. Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

Process To Submit A Request

To submit a verified request for your PII you may email us at elf@ChristmasisNotCancelled.com

 

Verification; Verification Method

Only you - or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf - may make a verifiable consumer request related to your PII. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. In order to ensure we do not inadvertently delete your PII based on a fraudulent request, we will verify your identity before we respond to your request. To verify your identity, we will generally match the identifying information provided in your request with the information we have on file about you. Depending on the sensitivity of the PII requested to be deleted, we may also utilize more stringent verification methods to verify your identity, including but not limited to requesting additional information from you.   Please note you may only make a verifiable request for access (and data portability) twice within a 12-month period.  To be considered a verifiable consumer request, you must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected PII or an authorized representative.
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with PII if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the PII relates to you.  Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us.  We will only use PII provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.

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.

 

Right to Opt-Out

As a California resident, you have the right to opt-out of the sale of your PII to third parties. To exercise this right, please click here.
