19. For California Residents Only: Notice of Financial Incentive; Chatbots

You have the right to receive equal service and price and not be discriminated against for exercising any of your CCPA rights. The CCPA also allows us to offer certain financial incentive programs that may result in different prices, rates, or quality levels when consumers make purchases through these programs. When you sign up for these programs, we will ask you to provide your contact information, email address or phone number to receive messages that include information about the programs. Your contact information, email address and phone number are personal information, and the value of your personal information to us is related to the value of the free or discounted products that you obtain in connection with these programs, and it is based on the expense related to offering those free or discounted products or services. Before we save your contact information, email address and/or phone number to our databases or send you any promotion offer, you will be presented with the opportunity to opt-in to the program. You may withdraw from participating in these programs at any time.

We may from time to time offer rewards programs, benefits, and other offerings to consumers related to the collection, retention, or sale of Personal Information that may be deemed a “financial incentive” or “price or service difference” under the CCPA.

We are providing you with this information so that you may make an informed decision on whether to participate in our programs.

Examples of the programs we may offer include:

  • Reward Program: We may offer a program where customers can earn rewards, accumulate points on purchases, and discounts on purchases. As part of the program, we may collect Personal Information, such as your name, email address, phone number, and date of birth.
  • One-Time Promotions: We may offer you one-time percentage off coupons, discounts, or other promotions from time to time, such as when you provide us your email address and agree to receive marketing emails in exchange for a one-time coupon or when you provide an email address as a referral. Such offers may not be available at all times. The amount and terms of such offers will be presented to you at the time of the offer.

The value of the benefits we provide to you via these programs depends on various factors, including the benefits and insights that we realized when you use our services and buy our products, sales generated from participation in our programs, whether the sales generated by our programs exceed the costs to us of offering such programs, how many consumers sign up for our programs, and increased goodwill generated from provision of our programs.

Participation in our promotional programs is always optional, and you can terminate program participation at any time as explained in the applicable program terms, or by contacting us at Data Privacy Enquiry.

We may communicate with you via an automated online account where all or substantially all of the actions or posts of that account are not the result of a person (a “Chatbot”). We may use such Chatbots to help provide you service and address your queries. Such Chatbot features may also record any conversations between you and the Chatbot to help ensure we are best serving you and other users.
