Our agents and contractors have access to Information to help carry out the services they are performing for us, such as, but not limited to, fulfilment, creation, maintenance, hosting, and delivery of products and services, conduct marketing, handle payments, email and order fulfillment, administer contests, conduct research and analytics, or customer service.
Linked sites. Some of our sites contain links to other sites, including Social Media Sites, whose information practices can be different from ours. You should consult the other sites' privacy disclosures and terms before submitting any Information, as we have no control over Information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.
Sponsors and co-promotions. We sometimes offer content or programs that are sponsored by or co-branded with identified third parties. By virtue of these relationships, the third parties collect or obtain Information from you when participating in the activity. We have no control over these third parties' use of this Information.

For more information about interest-based advertising on your desktop or mobile browser, and your ability to opt out of this type of advertising by third parties that participate in self-regulatory programs, please visit https://optout.networkadvertising.org/?c=1. Please note that any opt-out choice you exercise through these programs will apply to interest-based advertising by the third parties you select, but will still allow the collection of data for other purposes, including research, analytics, and internal operations. You can continue to receive advertising, but that advertising will be less relevant to your interests.
You can have more options depending on your mobile device and operating system. For example, most device operating systems (e.g., iOS for Apple phones, Android for Android devices, and Windows for Microsoft devices) provide their own instructions on how to limit or prevent the delivery of tailored in-application advertisements. You can review the support materials and/or the privacy settings for the respective operating systems to learn more about these features and how they apply to tailored in-app advertisements.

CALIFORNIA AND CCPA PRIVACY RIGHTS AND DISCLOSURES (effective 1/1/2020)
This California Privacy Rights and Disclosures section addresses legal obligations and rights laid out in the California Consumer Privacy Act, or CCPA. These obligations and rights apply to businesses doing business in California and to California residents and information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with California consumers or households (“California Information”). The information contained in this section applies to California Information collected and used by Arbor Energy Holdings LLC (for the purposes of this section, “we” or “us”). If you are a California resident interested in the rights that the CCPA grants to you, please review the following sections.
Your California Privacy Rights to Request Disclosure of Information We Collect and Share About You. If you are a California resident, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits you to request information about our practices related to the disclosure of your personal information by Arbor Energy Holdings LLC to certain third parties for their direct marketing purposes. You may be able to opt-out of our sharing of your personal information with unaffiliated third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes in certain circumstances.

• The categories and specific pieces of your California Information that we’ve collected

See the Your Choices section to learn how to control data collection for certain purposes.
Consumers Under 16 Years Old. CCPA has specific rules regarding the use of California Information from consumers under 16 years of age. In particular, consistent with the CCPA, if we knowingly collect the California Information of a consumer under the age of 16, we will not sell the information unless we receive affirmative permission to do so. If the consumer is between the ages of 13 and 16 years of age, the consumer may provide that permission; if the consumer is under the age of 13, the consumer’s parent or guardian must provide the permission.
If you would like further information on how we handle California Information from consumers under the age of 16 years of age, or if you have questions about these information practices, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
