The CCPA also provides California residents with the right to opt out of the “sale” of their personal information. Under the CCPA, a “sale” is broadly defined as making available personal information to a third-party for valuable consideration. It does not necessarily mean money was exchanged for the transfer of personal information.

For purposes of the CCPA, a “sale” may include using targeted advertising services to deliver targeted advertising on our Services or other sites. Like most mobile applications, we use these services, which enable us to provide our Services and relevant offers to you. As a result, Artisse may “sell” the following categories of personal information: identifiers (e.g., advertising IDs); internet activity; geolocation data; and inferences drawn to create a profile.

We do not sell personal information of California residents.

IF YOU ARE A RESIDENT OF NEVADA

We do not sell personal information of Nevada residents.
