Right to Limit Use and Disclosure of Sensitive Personal Information. We do not collect or process sensitive personal information for the purpose of inferring characteristics about consumers. We also do not disclose sensitive personal information for purposes other than those specified in section 7027(m) of the CCPA regulations promulgated by the California Privacy Protection Agency. Therefore, we do not offer consumers the option to limit the use of their sensitive personal information.

Right to Opt Out of Sharing for Cross-Context Behavioral Advertising. In the past twelve months we have used data about your activities on our online properties to serve you ads on online properties owned or controlled by third parties. In the past twelve months, we have provided the following categories of information to advertising networks, data analytics providers, social media networks, affiliates, data connectivity platforms, digital behavioral data solution providers, marketing platforms and automation software providers, tag management systems, and video sharing platforms for this purpose:

Right to Opt Out of Sale. While we do not sell personal information in exchange for monetary consideration, we do share personal information for other benefits that could be deemed a “sale,” as defined by the CCPA. The CCPA broadly defines “sale” in a way that may include actives such as the delivery of targeted advertising on websites or allowing third parties to receive certain information, such as cookies, IP address, and/or browsing behavior. In the past twelve months, we have provided the following categories of information to advertising networks, data analytics providers, social media networks, affiliates, data connectivity platforms, digital behavioral data solution providers, marketing platforms and automation software providers, tag management systems, and video sharing platforms in ways that could be considered a “sale” under California law:

  • Personal identifiers, such as unique personal identifier, online identifier, internet protocol address, device information and identifiers, and unique advertising identifiers and cookies; Internet and other electronic network activity information; geolocation information; inference data; California Customer Records personal information; characteristics of protected classifications; commercial information; and sensory data.

We disclosed these categories of information to these third parties in order to market and advertise our products and services; perform analytics; and to maintain, improve, upgrade, or enhance our products or services.

We have no actual knowledge of selling the personal information or the sensitive personal information or minors under 16 years of age.

California residents have the right to opt out of the “sale” of their personal or sensitive personal information.

  • Notice of Financial Incentive.  Cymbiotika maintains a loyalty program (ARISETM) that provides discounts to those who choose to participate.

Should you wish to participate, you will be asked to provide some personal information, such as name, e-mail address, and telephone number.

Under California law, the ARISETM program may be considered a financial incentive provided in exchange for the collection, use, and retention of personal information. In our good faith calculation we consider the value of consumer data collected through the ARISETM program  as the equivalent of relevant expenses related to the collection and retention of consumers’ personal information as part of the Program.  

You can opt-out from the ARISETM program  at any time by contacting us via one of the methods set forth in the “Exercising Your Rights” section below. You may also submit a request that we delete your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy.
