While we do not provide personal information about you to other companies for money, we do allow certain advertising and analytics partners to collect identifiers, commercial information and Internet or other electronic network information via our Services to show you ads that are targeted to your interests, and these disclosures may be considered “selling” as defined by California law.

You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child if you believe we have received their information inadvertently. You may request to exercise the aforementioned rights by:
Submitting a request to SF-Marketing@BoydCAT.com
Please note that we may take steps to verify your identity and residency before granting you access to information or acting on your request to exercise your rights, as required or permitted by law.

We will confirm receipt of the request within 10 business days describing our verification process. We will respond to your request within 45 days or let you know if we need additional time.
