What are my privacy rights in California?

Residents of the State of California, under a new provision of California Civil Code, have the right to request from companies conducting business in California a list of all third parties to which the company has disclosed PII during the preceding year for direct marketing purposes. Alternatively, the law provides that if the company has a privacy policy that gives either an Opt-out or Opt-in choice for use of your PII by third parties (such as advertisers) for marketing purposes, the company may instead provide you with information on how to exercise your disclosure choice options.

Hillbilly Culture qualifies for the alternative option; it has a comprehensive privacy policy and provides you with details on how you may either Opt-out or Opt-in to the use of your PII by third parties for direct marketing purposes. Therefore, we are not required to maintain or disclose a list of the third parties that received your PII for marketing purposes during the preceding year.

If you are a California resident and request information about how to exercise your third party disclosure choices you must send a request.
