ADDITIONAL PRIVACY INFORMATION FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS: 

(a) If you are a California resident, California law requires us to provide you with some additional information regarding the “personal information” (as defined in the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”))  PJBBASSOOKS collect from and about you, and your rights with respect to your personal information.

(b) How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals for California Residents: California Business & Professions Code Section 22575(b) provides that California residents are entitled to know how PJBASSBOOKS responds to "Do Not Track" browser settings. PJBASSBOOKS does not currently take action to respond to Do Not Track signals because a uniform technological standard has not yet been developed. We continue to review new technologies and may adopt a standard once one is created.

ADDITIONAL PRIVACY INFORMATION FOR NEVADA RESIDENTS:

Under Nevada law, Nevada residents who have purchased goods or services from us may opt-out of the “sale” of “covered information” (as such terms are defined under Nevada law) for monetary consideration to a person for that person to license or sell such information to additional persons. PJBASSBOOKS does not engage in such “sales” of “covered information,” but if it were to do so in the future, a Nevada resident who has purchased goods or services from us would have the right to submit a request to opt-out of future “sales” activity emailing us at pjbassbooks@gmail.com. Please note we may take reasonable steps to verify your identity and the authenticity of the request.

THIRD-PARTIES:

Our Site may contain links to other third-party websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these third-party sites and urge you to review their posted privacy policies.

CALIFORNIA PRIVACY NOTICE:

This Privacy Notice for California residents supplements the PJBASSBOOKS Privacy Policy. This Notice applies to website visitors, app users, and customers in California. This Notice gives California residents additional information about our information collection and use practices required by the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”), and also provides California residents with specific privacy rights.

California Information & Deletion Rights

If you are a California resident, the CCPA allows you to make certain requests about your personal information. Specifically, the CCPA allows you to request us to:

Inform you about the categories of personal information we collect or disclose about you; the categories of sources of such information, the business or commercial purpose for collecting your personal information, and the categories of third parties with whom we share/disclose personal information;

Provide access to and/or a copy of certain personal information we hold about you;

Delete certain personal information we have about you; and

Provide you with information about the financial incentives that we offer to you if any.

Please note that certain information may be exempt from such requests under California law. For example, we need certain information in order to provide the Services to you.

Verification: We will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before responding to a request, which may include, at a minimum, depending on the sensitivity of the information you are requesting and the type of request you are making, verifying your name, e-mail address, and physical address.

You are also permitted to designate an authorized agent to submit certain requests on your behalf. In order for an authorized agent to be verified, you must provide the authorized agent with signed, written permission to make such requests or a power of attorney. We may also follow up with you to verify your identity before processing the authorized agent’s request.

If you would like further information regarding your legal rights under California law or would like to exercise any of them, please submit your request using the following email address: pjbassbooks@gmail.com

 

 

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.

Under the CCPA, “sale” may also include allowing third parties to “collect” certain information, such as IP address, and/or browsing behavior, through cookies and similar technologies, to deliver targeted advertising on the Services or other services. Advertising, including targeted advertising, enables us to provide you certain content for free and allows us to provide you offers relevant to you.

If you would like to opt-out of our use of your information for such purposes that are considered a “sale” under California law, you may do so by emailing us at pjbassbooks@gmail.com. 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" DISCLOSURE:

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 email pjbassbooks@gmail.com
