Do Not Sell My Information

DO NOT SELL MY PERSONAL INFORMATION

This notice and the options below are exclusively applicable to California residents.

For California residents, the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) grants you the right to opt out of the “sale” of your Personal Information.

Please consult our Privacy Policy for an in-depth explanation of how we collect, use, and share the Personal Information of California residents in our business operations. This policy also outlines your privacy rights as a California resident and provides guidance on how to exercise those rights. In the context of this notice, “Personal Information” carries the meaning ascribed by the CCPA, excluding information that falls outside the CCPA’s scope.

ReturnHow typically does not directly “sell” your Personal Information in the traditional sense (i.e., for monetary compensation). Nevertheless, like many businesses, we employ services that facilitate interest-based advertising and may share Personal Information with business partners for their use. Sharing Personal Information, such as online identifiers or browsing activity, with these entities might be categorized as a “sale” under the CCPA.

To request that ReturnHow refrains from “selling” your Personal Information, kindly complete the form below. It’s important to note that certain transfers of your Personal Information may not qualify as “sales,” and specific exemptions could apply under the CCPA. Your selection will not impact other forms of information sharing, as specified in our Privacy Policy. You may still encounter advertisements, regardless of your choice. This selection is saved on this browser, on this device.

MORE INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR PRIVACY CHOICES

Beyond the option for California residents to opt out of ReturnHow’s “sale” of Personal Information, various tools and methods are available to any user—regardless of location—to opt out of having their online activity and device data collected by third parties. We have summarized these options below for your reference. It’s essential to understand that utilizing these tools to opt out of tracking and targeting does not guarantee an absence of advertising during your use of our Website or other websites. Nor does it prevent the receipt of interest-based advertising from third parties not participating in these programs. However, it does exclude you from interest-based advertising conducted through participating networks and platforms, following their policies and choice mechanisms.
