Under California law we are required to tell Californians if we “sell” or “share” information as those terms are defined by applicable law. Sell is defined as disclosing personal information to a third party for monetary or other valuable consideration.

From time to time, we may update this Policy. The updated Policy will be made available on our App or as we may notify you if required by law. If you continue to use the App after the Policy is posted, that signifies your acceptance of that change.
