California Privacy Rights. Under California law, California residents who have provided personally identifiable information to a company may have the right to request the categories of Personal Information and the specific pieces of personal information that the company has collected from you. California residents also may have the right to request a list of all third parties to whom that company has disclosed and/or sold such information for the third parties’ business purposes during the preceding calendar year, along with a list of the categories of Personal Information that has been so disclosed and/or sold. FSI only shares users’ Personal Information, including but not limited to e-mail addresses, with third parties with your consent, and gives you the right to opt out of having your Personal Information disclosed to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. If you are a California resident who would like information on how to exercise your rights concerning third party disclosures under California law, you may send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org For avoidance of doubt, this provision is made applicable to all users of the Website who want to request information about the Company’s use of their personal information, whether or not such user resides in California.
