A cookie helps The Finial better serve you when you return to this site. Cookies also help us collect non-personal information about web site visits.

California Privacy Rights

As provided by California Civil Code Section 1798.83, a California resident who has provided personal information to a business with whom he/she has established a business relationship for personal, family, or household purposes (“California user“) is entitled to request information about whether the business has disclosed personal information to any third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. In general, if the business has made such a disclosure of personal information, upon receipt of a request by a California user, the business is required to provide a list of all third parties to whom personal information was disclosed in the preceding calendar year, as well as a list of the categories of personal information that were disclosed.

However, under the law, a business is not required to provide the above-described lists if the business adopts and discloses to the public (in its privacy policy) a policy of only disclosing users’ personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes when the California user has first affirmatively agreed to the disclosure.  Rather, the business may comply with the law by notifying the California user of his or her right to prevent disclosure of personal information and providing a cost free means to exercise that right.

As stated in this Privacy Policy, we do not share information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless you affirmatively agree to such disclosure, typically by opting in to receive information from a third party that is participating in some activity described on our Applications. If you do ask us to share your information with a third party for its marketing purposes, we will only share information in connection with that specific activity, as we do not share information with any third party on a continual basis.  To prevent disclosure of your personal information for use in direct marketing by a third party, do not opt in to such use when you provide personal information on our site. California users may request further information about our compliance with this law by contacting us at thefinial@sbcglobal.net. Please note that we are only required to respond to one request per customer each year, and we are not required to respond to requests made by means other than through our site.

Public Postings

If you disclose your personal information online in a community area, that information can be collected and used by others in the community. The Finial has no control over such use of your personal information, even if the community area you used is, or appears to be, associated with The Finial – for example, a The Finial bulletin board.

Notification of Changes

The Finial will occasionally update this privacy statement. When we do, we will change the “last updated” date at the bottom of the privacy statement. You agree to visit this site from time to time to review the current applicable policies.

Questions or comments regarding The Finial privacy statement should be directed by email to thefinial@sbcglobal.net.
