IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS
Your California Privacy Rights
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits users of the Website that are California residents
to request and obtain from us a list of what personal information (if any) we shared with third
parties or corporate affiliates for those entities’ direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar
year, and the names and addresses of those third parties. Requests may be made only once a year
and are free of charge.
If you are a California resident and would like a copy of this notice, please submit a written request
to the following address: [760 Challenger St., Brea, CA 92821]. For all requests, you must put the
statement “California Privacy Rights Notice” in the body of your request, as well as your name,
street address, city, state, and zip code. You also need to attest to the fact that you are a California
resident and provide a current California address for our response. Please note that we will not
accept requests via telephone, email, or by facsimile, and we are not responsible for notices that

California Do Not Track Disclosures
California Business & Professions Code Section 22575(b) (as amended effective January 1, 2014)
provides that California residents are entitled to know how a website operator responds to “Do Not
Track” (DNT) browser settings. DNT is a feature offered by some browsers which, when enabled,
sends a signal to websites to request that your browsing is not tracked, such as by third party ad
networks, social networks and analytic companies. We do not currently take actions to respond to
DNT signals because a uniform technological standard has not yet been developed. We continue
to review new technologies and may adopt a DNT standard once one is created. For information
about DNT, please visit: www.allaboutdnt.org.
