The third parties and service providers may use their technology to provide advertising about products and services tailored to your interests which may appear either on our websites or on other websites.
To the extent these online tracking technologies are deemed to be a “sale” / “sharing” (which includes targeted advertising, as defined under the applicable laws) under applicable U.S. state laws, you may be able to opt-out of these online tracking technologies.

11. DATA CONTROLLER/PROCESSOR
Certain data protection laws and regulations, such as the EU GDPR, UK GDPR, CCPA/CPRA, and VCDPA, typically distinguish between two main roles for parties processing personal data: the “data controller” (or under the CCPA/CPRA, “business”), who determines the purposes and means of processing; and the “data processor” (or under the CCPA/CPRA, “service provider”), who processes the data on behalf of the data controller (or business). Below we explain how these roles apply to our Services, to the extent that such laws and regulations apply.
12. YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS OVER YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Consistent with applicable law, you may exercise the rights described in this Section 12. Please note that some of the rights may vary depending on your country, province, or state of residence.

Many browsers are set to accept cookies until you change your settings. Please note that blocking cookies may not completely prevent how we share information with third parties such as our advertising partners. Removing or rejecting cookies may affect your ability to use our Sites.
Because there is no consistent industry understanding of how to respond to “Do Not Track” signals, we do not alter our data collection and usage practices when we detect such a signal from your browser.

- FACEBOOK - https://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=ads

Depending on your request, we will ask for information such as your name, an e-mail address that you have used with us, a phone number you have used with us, or other information to help us verify your identity.
Depending on applicable law, you may be able to designate an authorized agent to submit a request on your behalf to access or delete your personal information.
