Please note that the categories and examples listed above are those defined in the CCPA. This does not mean that all examples of that category of Personal Information were in fact collected about every Site visitor, but reflects our good faith belief to the best of our knowledge that some of that information from the applicable category may be and may have been collected. For example, certain categories of Personal Information would only be collected if you provided such Personal Information when applying for a job via the Site, but not if you submitted a general inquiry or just visited the Site.
We collect the categories of Personal Information listed above from the following categories of sources:
- Directly from you when you provide it to us.
- Indirectly and automatically from your devices. For example, when you visit or interact with the Site.
- Directly from our parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, and other companies under common control and ownership.
- Directly from our clients or their agents. For example, from documents that our clients provide to us related to the services for which they engage us.
- From vendors who provide services to us.
- From other third parties. For example, sponsors or event partners in connection with certain ticketed events, social networking providers, and advertising companies. If you do not want us to collect information from social networks, you should review and adjust your privacy settings on those networks as desired before linking or connecting them to the Site.
- Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
- Sale of Personal Information
We do not and will not sell your Personal Information.
