5. Your Nevada and Your California Privacy Rights

Nevada residents who wish to exercise their sale opt-out rights under Nevada Revised Statutes Chapter 603A may submit questions to this designated address: www.kinziecp.com/contact. However, we do not currently sell data triggering that statute’s opt-out requirements, so we do not have opt-out obligations under Nevada law.

If you are a California resident, California law may provide you with additional rights regarding our use of your Personal Information.

We do not meet the minimum requirements obligating us to abide by the provisions of the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). However, we hereby notify you that we currently do not disclose any of your Personal Information to third parties except for the reasons set forth in this Privacy Policy.

If you wish to opt out of any such disclosure of your Personal Information, please contact us at www.kinziecp.com/contact. However, please note that any such opt out may prevent us from providing services to you.

California’s Online Privacy Protection Act (Cal. Bus. & Prof. C. §§22575-22579) (“CalOPPA”), requires website operators to disclose how they respond to web browser “do not track” signals or other similar mechanisms that provide consumers with the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information of a consumer over time and across third party websites and apps, to the extent the operator engages in that collection. At this time, we do not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. This law also requires website and app operators to disclose whether third parties may collect personally identifiable information about their users’ online activities over time and across different websites and apps when the users use the operator’s website or app. The nature of how third parties may collect or receive personally identifiable information is disclosed in this Privacy Policy. To learn more about how Do Not Track signals work, please visit http://allaboutdnt.com.

California’s “Shine the Light” law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83) permits users of our Site that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. We do not currently disclose Personal Information to third parties for direct marketing purposes. Please email us at www.kinziecp.com/contact with any questions. Please allow us 30 days for a response.

The Site is intended for general audiences and not for individuals under the age of 18.

8. Security

We have implemented security measures designed to secure your Personal Information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. These measures vary based on the sensitivity of the information that we collect and store. We do not store Personal Information on any of our own servers.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Information transmitted to our Site.
