California Privacy Rights
California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as the ”Shine The Light” law, permits users who are clients of ours and who are California residents to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, information about the personally identifiable information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. If applicable, this information would include a list of the categories of personal information that was shared and the names and addresses of all third parties with whom we shared information in the immediately preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to Jay Butterfield, American Realty Advisors, 801 North Brand Blvd., Suite 800, Glendale, California 91203.
In addition, under California Business and Professions Code Section 22575, website operators are required to disclose how they respond to Web browser “do not track” signals or other similar mechanisms. We do not utilize any tracking functionalities on our Website so this requirement does not apply to us. This law also requires website operators to disclose whether third parties may collect personally identifiable information about their users’ online activities over time and across different websites when the users use the operator’s website. We do not permit third parties to collect personality identifiable information from our users in this context.
