We engage third-party service providers to perform a variety of services and functions on our behalf, such as customer support, administering our promotions, marketing or promotional assistance, data analytics, online advertising, technology services and platforms, processing payments and other services.
We may share your personal information within the family of California Englished companies, including our subsidiary and affiliated companies, licensees and joint venture partners (collectively, our "Affiliates") to provide and improve our products and services, and so that they and we can offer you products and services that may be of interest to you.
We may share information with third parties with whom we have business relationships, such as our co-promotional partners, advertisers, ad networks, and data marketing services, for purposes such as offering products and services that may interest you.
Sweepstakes, Contests & Promotions
When you register or enter a promotion, sweepstakes, or contest through our Websites, we may share the information you provide for such purposes with authorized third-party service providers (as described above), participating sponsors, and advertising partners. Further, by entering any promotion, you are agreeing to the official rules that govern that promotion, which may require you to take certain actions, including, except where prohibited by law, allowing California Englished and/or the sponsor(s) of the promotion to use and publicly release your name, voice, and/or likeness in advertising or marketing associated with the promotion. Please review the relevant promotion, sweepstakes, or contest rules for more information.

The information that these companies collect or that we share may be used to customize or personalize the advertisements that are displayed to you.
We may aggregate and/or de-identify information such that it is not linked to you or your device. This aggregate information does not include your personal information. This Policy does not limit our ability to disclose aggregated or de-identified information that is not linked to you. We may use and disclose such information to our partners, advertisers, and any other third parties in our discretion.
In the event we go through a business transition such as a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, reorganization, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, or a diligence process in connection with a potential business transaction, the information we collect and maintain may be disclosed, sold, or transferred as part of that transaction. If such transfer is subject to additional restrictions under applicable laws, we will comply with such restrictions.
Additionally, we may disclose your personal information and other related information in response to subpoenas, court orders, or other lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. We may also collect and share personal information in order to investigate or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, violations of our Terms of Service, or as otherwise required by law or by government and regulatory authorities.

SECTION 10 – INFORMATION RECEIVED FROM NON-U.S. RESIDENTS
If you are located outside the United States, please note that you may be transferring your personal information to a country that does not have the same data protection laws as your home country. For personal information received from the European Union, European Economic Area, or Switzerland, California Englished is committed to handling your personal information in accordance with this Policy and the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield (or the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield, as the case may be), as administered by the U.S. Department of Commerce. If there is any conflict between the terms of this Policy and the Privacy Shield Principles, the Privacy Shield Principles shall govern. To learn more about the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield frameworks, and to view California Englished’s certification, please visit: https://www.privacyshield.gov/list.
California Englished’s accountability for personal information that it receives under the Privacy Shield and subsequently transfers to a third party is described in the Privacy Shield Principles. In particular, California Englished remains responsible and liable under the Privacy Shield Principles if third parties engaged by California Englished process the personal information in a manner inconsistent with the Principles, unless California Englished proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
As further explained in the "Questions and Contact Information" section below, we encourage you to contact us should you have a Privacy Shield-related (or general privacy-related) complaint.
SECTION 11 – QUESTIONS AND CONTACT INFORMATION
We welcome your feedback and questions about this Policy. If for any reason you wish to contact us, please send us an email.
Any complaints will be resolved internally in accordance with our complaints procedures. If you live in the European Union, European Economic Area, or Switzerland and efforts to resolve the matter internally are unsatisfactory, the complaint may be submitted to the American Arbitration Association (http://www.adr.org), which has been selected as the independent recourse mechanism to resolve complaints and disputes relating to treatment of data originating in the European Union, European Economic Area, or Switzerland under this Policy. Under certain conditions, you may be entitled to invoke binding arbitration through the Privacy Shield Panel when other dispute resolution procedures have been exhausted. We are subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

Notice of Right to Opt-Out of Sale of Personal Information
California residents may opt out of the “sale” of their personal information. Under the CCPA, “sale” is broadly defined to mean the sharing of personal information with third parties who are not acting as our service providers or who are otherwise not restricted from using data only on our behalf or pursuant to an applicable CCPA exception. In some circumstances, we may share certain of your information with third parties to provide you with offers, promotions, and opportunities that may be of interest to you, which may be considered a “sale” under the CCPA.
Please note that we do not knowingly sell the personal information of minors under 16 years of age without legally-required affirmative authorization.
The CCPA further provides you with the right to not be discriminated against (as provided for in applicable law) for exercising your access, deletion or sale opt out rights.
California Shine the Light Requests
If a company shares “personal information” (as defined in California’s “Shine the Light” law, Civil Code § 1798.83) with third parties for their direct marketing purposes (e.g., to send offers and information that may be of interest to you), California law requires either providing a mechanism by which consumers can obtain more information about such sharing over the prior calendar year, or providing a mechanism by which consumers can opt out of such sharing. As discussed above, we provide an opt out for this sharing. If you are a California resident and would like to opt out of sharing pursuant to this law, please contact us.
