Do Not Sell My Personal Information
Your Right to Opt Out of Sale of Your Personal Information
Under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA), beginning January 1, 2020, California residents have the right to opt out of the sale of personal information about them or their household, such as (though not limited to) their name, postal or email address, and other personally identifying information. You need not be physically present in California to exercise this right provided that you are a current California resident.
This right is subject to certain exemptions. For example, the law does not apply to information that has been aggregated and/or de-identified such that it could not reasonably be used to identify you. It also does not apply to information that we share with third-party service providers in order for them to perform certain business functions for us.
While Merchants Bonding Company (Mutual) and Merchants National Bonding, Inc. (“Merchants”) does not sell your personal information for marketing purposes, you still retain your right to opt out of the sale of your personal information.
