Do Not Sell My Personal Information
Glide is 100% committed to our customers, which is why we want to take the time to explain exactly what the “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link on Glide webpages and apps means. The purpose of this section is to explain (1) why Glide´s webpages and apps contain the “Do Not Sell” link, (2) what it means to “sell” “personal information,” as those terms are defined under California law (3) that Glide “sell” personal information under the California definition of “sale,” (4) what happens if you tell Glide not to “sell” your personal information, (5) how Glide implements your choice to block it from “selling” your personal information, and (6) how Glide maintains your “Do Not Sell” Choice.
1. Why Does Glide Provide the “Do Not Sell” Link?
Glide provides the “Do Not Sell” link to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), California Civil Code Section 1798.100 et seq., effective January 1, 2020. The CCPA is a new data protection law that provides California residents with certain choices about their data, including the ability to tell companies not to “sell” their personal information.
2. What Does it Mean to “Sell” “Personal Information” Under the CCPA?
The CCPA broadens the definition of “sale” and “personal information” beyond how you might commonly interpret those terms. Under the CCPA, “personal information” includes information that is not necessarily directly tied to an individual’s identity but may be associated with a device. This includes identifiers such as IP addresses, web cookies and web beacons.
In many cases, this type of information is not associated with you, but they are unique identifiers that could be. Similarly, the term “sell” is defined to include not just selling in exchange for money, but also sharing or transferring personal information (including information that does not directly identify an individual as described above) in exchange for anything of value, which is not limited to the exchange of money. Certain actions are not considered “sales,” including when:

4. What Happens when I Tell Glide not to “Sell” my Personal Information?
When a user of our websites/apps makes the “Do Not Sell” choice, we will immediately block and cancel further sharing of the covered identifiers with the third-parties we engage on those digital properties or any other entity that does not fall within the service provider exception or the consumer directed exception.
5. How Does Glide Implement my Choice to Block it from “Selling” my Personal Information?
The implementation of your choice to block the sale of your personal information is complex and will vary between Glide brands, websites, and apps. As general rule, however, when you click the “Do Not Sell” link, you will be provided with two choices: (1) sign into your Glide account and set your “Do Not Sell” preference in your account settings or (2) fill and submit Glide’s CCPA Form titled “Do Not Sell My Personal Information Request” to firstname.lastname@example.org.
