What is the Do Not Sell Rule?
The Do Not Sell Rule is a provision of the CCPA that allows California residents to opt-out of the sales of their personal data. Note: the CCPA uses the word “sale,” but it also means share. The CCPA defines selling as:
“Selling, renting, releasing, disclosing, disseminating, making available, transferring, or otherwise communicating orally, in writing, or by electronic or other means, a consumer’s personal information by the business to another business or a third party for monetary or other valuable consideration.”
Anyreasonvegans.com works exclusively with Google Adsense. According to Google Safety Center:
“We do not sell your personal information to anyone.”
“We use data to serve you relevant ads in Google products, on partner websites, and in mobile apps. While these ads help fund our services and make them free for everyone, your personal information is not for sale. And we also provide you powerful ad settings so you can better control what ads you see.
We use data to make our services more useful and to show relevant advertising, which helps make our services free for everyone. Without identifying you personally to advertisers or other third parties, we might use data that includes your searches and location, websites and apps you’ve used, videos and ads you’ve seen, and basic information you’ve given us, such as your age range and gender.”
“Depending on your Ad Settings and if you’re signed in, this data informs the ads you see across your devices and across sites that partner with us to show ads. So if you visit a travel website on your computer at work, you might see other ads served by Google about airfares to Paris on your phone later that night.”
As a consumer you have the right to Opt out of personalized ads. Submitting this request will prevent us from selling personal information related to you.
This request is only available to residents of California as part of the California Consumer Privacy Act.
Requests may take up to 30 days to complete.
