Beginning July 1, 2023, you may also exercise your right to Opt-Out of Data Sharing and Sales by enabling your browser’s Global Privacy Control (GPC) setting. We will not collect any Personal Information for any session where GPC is enabled in the browser, except the information necessary to enable basic website functionality available to all customers such as product sale, payment, and delivery (including critical functionality cookies).
In those sessions where your browser’s GPC setting is enabled and we can identify you (e.g., if you logged in to the Website(s) or completed an online form), we will assume the “GPC enabled” setting in your browser is meant to convey a request to Opt-Out of Data Sharing and Sales, which will be acknowledged and completed per our standard process. If we are not able to reasonably associate a GPC signal with an identifiable consumer, we will treat it as a request to opt-out of the sale or sharing of that user’s Personal Information collected while the signal is present. While the signal is present, we will also disable any third-party cookies or other third-party tracking tools present on the websites that are related to the sale or sharing of Personal Information.
