This section supplements the information contained in the Arts Decoder Privacy Policy and applies solely to visitors, users, and others who are residents of the State of California. This section describes your rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”). Any terms defined in the CCPA have the same meaning as when used herein.


The CCPA is a California law that provides California residents certain rights to their personal information. You can read the CCPA here*:

California residents, called “consumers” in the CCPA, have the following rights:

  • The right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of personal information over the past 12 months.
  • The right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collect from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions.
  • The right to opt-out of the sale of personal information by us.
  • The right not to receive discriminatory treatment by us for exercising the privacy rights conferred by the CCPA.

We will explain more about how to exercise these rights below.

When we talk about “personal information” under the CCPA, we mean information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked to, directly or indirectly, a particular consumer. Personal information does not include publicly available information or information that is de-identified or aggregate consumer information. The CCPA does not apply to personal information covered by certain sector-specific privacy laws, including the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FRCA), the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), or the California Financial Information Privacy Act (FIPA), and the Driver’s Privacy Protection Act of 1994. It also doesn’t apply to health or medical information covered by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the California Confidentiality of Medical Information Act (CMIA) or clinical trial data.


The following chart sets out the CCPA categories of personal information we have collected from consumers within the last twelve (12) months.

We may collect personal information for one or more of the following business purposes:

  • To fulfill or meet the reason you provided the information. For example, if you share your name and contact information to request a price quote or ask a question about our services, we will use that personal information to respond to your inquiry. If you provide your personal information to purchase a service, we will use that information to process your payment and facilitate delivery. We may also save your information to facilitate new service orders or process returns.
  • To provide, support, personalize, and develop this website, and our services.
  • To process your requests, purchases, transactions, and payments and prevent transactional fraud.
  • To provide you with support and to respond to your inquiries, including to investigate and address your concerns and monitor and improve our responses.
  • To personalize this website experience and to deliver content and product and service offerings relevant to your interests, including targeted offers and ads through this website, third-party websites, and via email (with your consent, where required by law).
  • To help maintain the safety, security, and integrity of this website, and our services, databases and other technology assets, and business.
  • For testing, research, analysis, and service development, including to develop and improve this website, and our services.
  • To respond to law enforcement requests and as required by applicable law, court order, or governmental regulations. As described to you when collecting your personal information or as otherwise set forth in the CCPA.
  • To evaluate or conduct a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by us about this website’s users is among the assets transferred.


We may disclose your personal information to a third party for a business purpose (including “selling”, meaning transferring information to a third party for a business purpose. We do not sell personal information as the term is traditionally understood, versus the definition under the CCPA — for example, we do not exchange for money personal information to data brokers or third parties for their marketing purposes independent of us.) The personal information we may disclose includes:

  • Identifiers
  • California Customer Records personal information categories.
  • Protected classification characteristics under California or federal law.
  • Commercial information.
  • Internet or similar network activity.
  • Geolocation.
  • Sensory data.
  • Professional or employment-related information.


The CCPA defines a “sale” of personal information as the disclosure, sharing, or making available of a consumer’s personal information by a business to another business or third party for monetary or other valuable consideration. It is not a sale if a consumer uses or directs the business to intentionally disclose personal information or uses the business to intentionally interact with a third party.

You have the right to instruct us to stop the kind of sharing that the CCPA treats as “sales” and not to engage in that kind of sharing in the future unless you choose to allow it. Please be aware there may be circumstances where we can share information with others even if you instruct us to stop “selling” your personal information, as permitted under the CCPA. For example, we may still be able to share information with our service providers so that they can provide services to us. In addition, your instruction to stop “selling” your personal information will not affect sharing that occurred before you gave us the instruction.

Arts Decoder does not monetize your personal information. We do not sell personal information as the term is traditionally understood, versus the definition under the CCPA — for example, we do not exchange for money personal information to data brokers or third parties for their marketing purposes independent of us. We share certain information about your device and interaction with this website to enhance your experience with us and to engage in the legitimate business purpose of advertising and marketing. The Your Choices In Opting-Out Of Interest Based Advertising and the Analytics section of our Privacy Policy describes how you can opt-out of sharing your personal information for advertising and analytics purposes.

You may opt-out of the “sale” of your personal information by clicking here: Do Not Sell My Personal Information. Arts Decoder does not have actual knowledge that it sells the personal information of minors under the age of 16.


Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. Authorized Agents must submit proof that they have been authorized by the consumer to act on their behalf. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to complete the request.

We verify requests by sending a confirmation email to the requestor and by matching the identifying information provided by the consumer to the personal information already maintained by us. We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot: (i) verify your identity or authority to make the request; and (ii) confirm the personal information relates to you. If we are unable to verify the identity of a consumer to enough degree of certainty, we will deny the request and explain the reason for the denial.


You may only make a verifiable request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. To exercise the access or data portability, and deletion rights described in our Privacy Policy, please submit a request to us by emailing us at


In addition to the CCPA, the California Civil Code permits California residents with whom we have an established business relationship to request that we provide you with a list of certain categories of personal information we have disclosed to third parties for their direct marketing purposes during the immediately preceding calendar year. To make such a request, please email us at and mention that you are making a “California Shine the Light” inquiry.
