The CCPA also has a limited application to financial data subject to the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act or state motor vehicle records subject to the Driver's Privacy Protection Act of 1994.

We are specifically prohibited from disclosing highly sensitive information in response to a request, including your: social security number, driver’s license number or other government-issued identification number, financial account number, any health insurance or medical identification number, an account password, security questions and answers, or unique biometric data generated from measurements or technical analysis of human characteristics.

However, the CCPA defines the “sale” of information as including as any release, disclosure, transfer, making available, or otherwise communicating Personal Information to another business or third-party for monetary or other valuable consideration.
We generally restrict our sharing of data to third parties under contracts where data is not being exchanged as the primary item of value, but as necessary to receive services. However, a disclosure is a “sale” under the CCPA absent specific clauses in our contracts with those third parties. While there is not yet a consensus, the data practices of using third-party cookies and other tracking technologies associated with our services may also constitute a “sale” of your personal information as defined by the CCPA. Under a broad interpretation of the CCPA definitions, we have “sold” data in the past 12 months to our online marketing, advertising, and analytics providers and third-party technology and software partners. The categories of data to which this applies are listed below in the section “Categories of Sources of Personal Information and How We Use and Share that Information.”
If you wish to opt-out of the such sharing or “sale” of Personal Information, you may complete an opt-out request at the “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link.

Once you make an opt-out request, we will wait at least twelve (12) months before asking you to reauthorize personal information sales. We will respond to your request within 15 days, or other period as required or permitted by regulation.
