Sale of Personal Data
Under the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act of 2023 (the “VCDPA”), you have the right to opt out of the sale of your personal information to third parties. The VCDPA defines “selling,” in part, as releasing, disclosing, disseminating, making available, transferring, or otherwise communicating a consumer’s personal information to a third party for monetary or “other valuable consideration.” Under this broad definition, the sharing of personal information through the use of certain cookies could be interpreted as a “sale” of personal information. Therefore, out of an abundance of caution, we provide you with the right to opt-out of the “sale” of your personal information even though such “sale” relates only to the use of certain cookies on our site.
To that end, you have the right to opt out of the “sale” of your personal information by following the instructions on the “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” page or by contacting us at [email protected].
If you have enabled privacy controls on your browser (such as a plugin), we have to take that as a valid request to opt out. Therefore we would not be able to track your activity through the web. This may affect our ability to personalize ads according to your preferences.
