We set some Cookies ourselves and others are set by other entities.

Google reCAPTCHA

We use Google reCAPTCHA, a free service provided by Google, Inc., to protect our Site from spam and abuse. Google reCAPTCHA uses advanced risk analysis techniques to decipher humans and bots. Google reCAPTCHA works differently depending on what version is deployed. For example, you may be asked to check a box indicating that you are not a robot or Google reCAPTCHA may detect abusive traffic without user interaction. Google reCAPTCHA works by transmitting certain types of information to Google, such as the referrer URL, IP address, visitor behavior, operating system information, browser and length of the visit, cookies, and mouse movements. Your use of Google reCAPTCHA is subject to Google’s Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.

4. “Do Not Track” Signals

Some internet browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” feature that signals to the Site you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. Given that there is not a uniform way that browsers communicate the “Do Not Track” signal, the Site do not currently interpret, respond to or alter its practices when it receives “Do Not Track” signals.

10. Notice to California Residents

Right to Request Deletion of Personal Information

If you are a California resident, you have the right to request that we delete the Personal Information about you that we have collected. However, per the CCPA, we are not required to comply with a request to delete if it is necessary for us to maintain the Personal Information in order to, for example, complete a transaction, detect security incidents, comply with a legal obligation, or otherwise use the Personal Information, internally, in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which you provided the information.

How to Submit a Request to Know or Delete

You may submit a request to know or delete by emailing us at info@warsonbrands.com or by calling us at 1-877-753-2426. 

Our Process for Verifying a Request to Know or Delete

We will comply with your request upon verification of your identity and, to the extent applicable, the identity of the California resident on whose behalf you are making such request. 

We will verify your identity either to a “reasonable degree of certainty” or a “reasonably high degree of certainty” depending on the sensitivity of the Personal Information and the risk of harm to you by unauthorized disclosure or deletion as applicable.

For requests to access categories of Personal Information and for requests to delete Personal Information that is not sensitive and does not pose a risk of harm by unauthorized deletion, we will verify your identity to a “reasonable degree of certainty” by verifying at least two data points that you previously provided to us and which we have determined to be reliable for the purpose of verifying identities. 

For requests to access specific pieces of Personal Information or for requests to delete Personal Information that is sensitive and poses a risk of harm by unauthorized deletion, we will verify your identity to a “reasonably high degree of certainty” by verifying at least three pieces of Personal Information previously provided to us and which we have determined to be reliable for the purpose of verifying identities.  In addition, you will be required to submit a signed declaration under penalty of perjury stating that you are the individual whose Personal Information is being requested.

Right to Opt-Out of Sale of Personal Information

The CCPA defines “sell” to mean selling, renting, releasing, disclosing, disseminating, making available, transferring, or otherwise communicating orally, in writing, or by electronic or other means, a California resident’s Personal Information to another business or a third party for monetary or other valuable consideration.

Our use of third-party advertising Cookies may constitute “sales” under the CCPA. To opt-out of our use of third-party advertising Cookies, please see the section “How You Can Opt-Out of Cookies” above or by clicking on the link: Do Not Sell My Personal Information[DS1] 

Right to Non-Discrimination for the Exercise of a California Resident’s Privacy Rights

We will not discriminate against California residents if they exercise any of the rights provided in the CCPA as described in this section “Notice to California Residents.” 

Authorized Agents

If you are submitting a request on behalf of a California resident, please submit the request through one of the designated methods discussed above. After submitting the request we will require additional information to verify your authority to act on behalf of the California resident.

Notice of Financial Incentive

From time to time, you may have the opportunity to provide personal information in exchange for a discount or price difference. For example, we provide a discount in exchange for you subscribing to our mailing list and joining our email program. Categories of personal information that we may collect when you subscribe to receive a discount include your email address. 

How to Opt-In and Right to Withdraw

Signing up for the discount is optional. By providing your email address during the discount sign-up process, you affirmatively opt in to receiving the financial incentive or price difference and to joining our mailing list. You have the right to withdraw from the financial incentive at any time. If you opt out of receiving the financial incentive, we will not reduce the value of any financial incentives you previously received from us. If you wish to withdraw from receiving the financial incentive, you may submit such a request at any time by emailing us at info@warsonbrands.com.  

How the Financial Incentive is Reasonably Related to the Value of Your Personal Information

The financial incentive or price difference is reasonably related to the value provided by your personal information. We take into consideration, without limitation, the anticipated revenue generated from such information, the anticipated expenses which we might incur in the collection, storage, and use of such information, and the anticipated expenses which we might incur related to the offer, provision, and imposition of any financial incentive or price difference. Based on this analysis, the value of your personal information that allows us to make these offers and financial incentives is the value of the offer itself.  

Shine the Light Law

We do not disclose personal information obtained through our Site or Services to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. Accordingly, we have no obligations under California Civil Code § 1798.83.
