This section supplements the description of our information collection and sharing practices elsewhere in this Privacy Policy to provide certain disclosures to California residents whose personal information Sleeper processes pursuant to the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). Please note that these disclosures do not apply to information that is not processed under the CCPA.

During the preceding 12 months, Sleeper has collected, used, and shared the categories of personal information described above in this Privacy Policy. For example, this may include identifiers (e.g., email addresses, IP addresses, and mobile device identifiers), profile information, commercial information, geolocation information, and internet or other electronic network activity information. This may also include inferences we draw from the other information we collect. See the “Collection of Information,” “Use of Information and Purpose of Data Processing,” “Disclosure of Information,” and other relevant sections of this Privacy Policy for more details.

Sleeper does not treat the sharing of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy as a “sale” of your information. Sleeper does permit third parties to collect the information described above through our Services as described in our Privacy Policy, including, but not limited to, enabling Sleeper to provide advertising based on users’ online activities over time and across different sites, services, and devices (so-called “interest-based advertising”).

Please see “Your Rights and Choices” for information about how to exercise rights to access your personal information or submit a request for deletion of information under certain circumstances. Once we receive your request, we may verify it by requesting information sufficient to confirm your identity, including by asking you for additional information. If you would like to use an agent registered with the California Secretary of State to exercise your rights, we may request evidence that you have provided such agent with power of attorney or that the agent otherwise has valid written authority to submit requests to exercise rights on your behalf.
