Your California Privacy Rights 

We provide California residents with the option to opt-out of sharing “personal information” as defined by California’s “Shine the Light” law with third parties, for such third parties’ own direct marketing purposes.  California residents may exercise that opt-out, and/or request information about EGM’s compliance with the Shine the Light law, by sending a letter to EGM at 21781 Ventura Blvd., Woodland Hills, CA 91364.  Requests must include “California Privacy Rights Request” in the first line of the description and include your name, street address, city, state, and ZIP code.  Please note that EGM is only required to respond to one request per customer each year.

The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) provides California residents with rights to receive certain disclosures regarding the collection, use, and sharing of “Personal Information,” as well as rights to know/access, delete, and limit sharing of Personal Information, and the right not to be discriminated against for exercising any of these rights. The CCPA defines “Personal Information” as “information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household.” To make such a request, please send an e-mail to privacy@egmnow.net.
